Statement of Work
Foundation Services Package + GDSN
This Statement of Work (“SOW”) is subject to the attached Order Form with the associated Terms of Service and attachments between Salsify and Customer. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein will have the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms of Service, as the case may be.
SOW Term. The Services shall commence on the date set forth on the Order Form and shall continue until the earlier of: (i) completion of the Services as outlined in the Completion Criteria section or (ii) the termination date set forth on the Order Form.
The objectives of this document are the following:
This service package is designed to provide a Salsify led onboarding focused on the set up and enablement of one of your operating units. The Salsify project team will perform hands-on configuration of the Salsify platform based on the services outlined in this SOW and Customer-defined objectives. At the end of this onboarding period, customers will have centralized product content including digital assets, a standard catalog configured to provide a visual review of content, data modeled to support GDSN requirements, syndication to trade partners through a GDSN data pool and training and enablement allowing your team to self-manage the Salsify platform.
Salsify will perform the following services as part of this SOW:
Salsify will conduct a discovery session to review and consult with Customer on the following topics:
Based on the information gathered during the discovery phase, Salsify will configure Customer’s data model within Salsify. The data model will account for properties required to support source systems and GDSN requirements. Salsify will also configure a readiness report for Customer which will allow the Customer team to evaluate content completeness and quality against both GDSN and Customer internal content standards.
Once the data model is complete, Salsify will work with Customer to load content into Salsify from Customer’s source system(s), including up to 3 different data feeds that are expected to contain copy and digital media. As part of the content loading process, Salsify is able to link digital assets to existing products based on a consistent file naming convention inclusive of the product ID. Salsify will link assets based on up to 25 variations of the file name. If additional naming conventions exist, additional effort may be required to include all variations.
After the initial content load is complete, Salsify will work with Customer to set up a semi-automated data feed process where Customer can place new or updated product information in a flat file format (.xlsx or .csv) on a Salsify provided SFTP server. This process will consume files placed on the SFTP and add or update product information in Salsify.
Salsify will also configure a digital catalog to provide an additional visual aide to support Customer with review of the configured data model and imported content.
Once all configuration has been completed and approved, Salsify will provide one overview session and supporting documentation for Customer. The purpose of this session will be to review key decisions made during the content import milestone and the process designed to import content in an ongoing fashion. This thirty minute session is in addition to the standard training courses.
As part of this package, Salsify will configure, map and support publishing to GDSN trade partners.
Salsify will configure one or more Salsify channels for publishing to GDSN trading partners. For each GDSN channel, Salsify will work with Customer product experts to:
Salsify will provide Customer with a live training session, documentation to outline the specific configurations that were completed as part of this GDSN onboarding and configuration of a daily report to share publish and error information with Customer. During this session, Salsify will ensure Customer is able to manage GDSN configuration post onboarding.
Customer’s project team will complete the Salsify Standard Platform Training curriculum, which provides foundational Salsify skills that ensure Customer can configure and administer Salsify on a go-forward basis. The Salsify Standard Platform Training curriculum includes training on modules within the Salsify platform, and is accessible via on-demand recordings (included with Customer’s Salsify subscription).
This project is estimated at 3-5 months from project kick-off to Go-live. This project timeline is an estimate based on the activities outlined above. The assigned Salsify Consultant will create a detailed project schedule upon project initiation based on actual assigned resource availability and project dependencies. While Salsify will try to adhere to the estimated project timeline, many factors such as delays in Customer providing deliverables or changes in scope can affect both the individual task dates and the projected go-live date.
A Salsify engineer/consultant will validate that the functionality delivered meets the completion criteria as defined in this SOW.
Following successful Salsify testing, it is expected that a Customer resource will also test and validate that the delivered functionality meets the requirements as defined in this SOW or provided use cases. All feedback will be reported to Salsify so that resolution of defects can be tracked and resolved.
The following completion criteria have been defined and agreed to by Customer and Salsify. Salsify will ensure the delivered functionality meets the criteria as defined below. Customer will have five (5) business days of each milestone delivery to provide Salsify feedback identifying and describing in reasonable detail any defects within the delivered functionality. The functionality shall be considered complete upon the later of the five day feedback period and the update of the requested modification.
Customer must report any deficiency in Services to Salsify in writing within thirty (30) days of completion of such an applicable portion of the Services (the “Warranty Period”). Salsify will promptly remedy and support any deficiency in the Services reported to Salsify during the Warranty Period; Salsify will have no obligation to provide, remedy or support any requirements or functionality which are outside the scope of this Statement of Work.
Following the expiration of the Warranty Period, Salsify will use commercially reasonable efforts to remediate any bugs or defects in the Services for so long as Customer is covered by an active paid subscription to Salsify’s proprietary Salsify Platform.
As part of this engagement, Customer is responsible for:
Salsify will deliver the services described in this document subject to the assumptions listed in this section. Invalidation of these assumptions may alter the scope of services required for successful implementation/administration of the Salsify platform and may require a change order or an additional SOW, where the change process will be followed as described in the “Change Control Process” section of this document.
In addition to those mentioned elsewhere in this SOW, the following risks have been identified that may impact the timing or success of this project (this is not necessarily a complete list):
The below identifies the change control process that will be utilized when Customer requires a deliverable that is not currently in scope as part of this SOW and is required to be delivered as part of this initial project. If the new request can be delivered outside of this project, then a new SOW will be issued:
Services beyond the scope of this document will be considered out of scope and will require a change order or an SOW to be issued. All change orders will follow the change control process as defined in this document. The following items have been identified as out of scope (this is not necessarily a full list):
