As part of Pearson’s commitment to provide you with the best possible service, we are making several updates to our internal systems and processes. These changes will come into effect in early November 2022.
We are determined to make these updates as smoothly as possible, and to help you through this transition by providing the information below.
To help minimise any disruption to our service to you, we encourage you to place orders before Wednesday 19 October 2022 as there will be a brief period where orders cannot be processed and fulfilled.
We are also anticipating a short shipment delay for physical products from late October through to mid-November. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
Key Business System Changes
Due to the internal system updates, you’ll notice the following changes:
- New User levels
To align with Pearson’s global standards, we are consolidating our user levels to either an A, B or C. These new levels will come into effect from early November.
- New account numbers
You will be assigned a new account number. This number will be provided to you once the system upgrade is complete. For now, please continue using your current account number.
- Sales Order Acknowledgement notifications
You will receive a Sales Order Acknowledgement (SOA) document every time an order is placed or updated. This will be sent by email only and will confirm each product within your order, including any items on backorder.
- Sales Invoice document
Your sales invoice will be continued to be included in the box with the products but will also be emailed to you once the order is dispatched.
- New document format and design
The documents you receive from Pearson (such as the sales invoice) will have an updated format and design.
