Circulation System Update 14032018

News Corp is planning an update to our Start/Stop notifications. This update is planned for Wednesday 14th of March 2018. We do not believe that this will require any change to systems as it just replaces a # number with a sequential number but should you have any concerns with these updates please contact your Account Management 1: Sequential Numbering of Start Stop Messages: News Corp is releasing a minor change to the current Start/Stop notification by placing sequential #'s per store (Account) on the notifications in iServices by utilising "Reference Number" which is displayed on iServices and on Start/Stop document (iServices /Fax/Email). Starting from number “1”, we would then see the reference number increase by one whenever start/stop document is produced/available for an agent/account. (Note: Not all agents receive start/stop documents daily, so if an agent does not have any notification for a particular day, the next time notification is available, the reference number should increase by one). WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? We recently concluded a national newsagent review across each of the 4 major states with representatives from the agent channels. A common challenge was, newsagents getting confused with "Reference Number" appearing in iServices and Start/Stop notifications. WHAT IS CHANGING? We are changing "Reference Number" to be in a sequential order to make it easy for the agents to access Start/Stops. Example is attached. Please note there is no change to the format of the notifications or data files.
