To activate an Instructor or Prepaid Account provided by your school or company, or to purchase a New Account, go to the SCM Globe home page shown below (www.scmglobe.com) and click on the blue “Register” button (1).
NOTE: If you had an account on SCM Globe before, and are using the same email address, then type in that email and your password on the home page. If you forgot your password click on the “Forgot password?” link next to “Login” button.
Clicking on the blue “Register” button (arrow 1) brings you to the registration screen shown below.
Type in your first and last name (arrow 1). Depending on whether you are activating a prepaid account or purchasing a new account take one of these actions:
- For a prepaid account, type in the email address provided to you for your account (it may be an email address you already use – arrow 2). This identifies you as a prepaid account. Check with your instructor or account administrator if you have questions about what email address to use.
- To purchase a new account, type in your email address (arrow 2).
- For both prepaid accounts and purchasing new accounts, make up and enter a password to use with your account (arrow 3).
Then type in the number or text that you see in the CAPTCHA box, and click the blue “Sign up” button (arrow 4).
- If you have a prepaid account, you will go directly to your Account Management screen as shown below.
- If you are purchasing a new account, you will go to the payment screen. Click on the yellow “Buy Now ” button for the Student Edition or the Business Edition. That will take you to the PayPal screen where you use a credit card or PayPal account to make your purchase (see prices in SCM Globe Pricing). When your payment is processed, you come to your Account Management screen as shown below.
- Student accounts are for 90 days from the date of purchase, but if your semester is a few weeks longer, then send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. State your name, the email address you used to register, your school, and your semester end date. We can extend your account to cover your entire semester.
- An instructor may request extended access if a student has an Incomplete for the course. The student must discuss their need with their instructor who will make the extension request if it is approved by the instructor.
- If you get the error message “Email has already been taken” It means you are using an email address you used before to activate an account on SCM Globe. In that case, you do not have to register again. Just logon at the SCM Globe home page by typing in your email address and your old password. If you forgot your old password, then click on the “Forgot password?” link to reset your password.
Your Account Management screen is where you manage your supply chain models and your account.
Once you activate a prepaid account or purchase a new account, you logon to SCM Globe in the future by going to the SCM Globe home page (www.scmglobe.com) and entering your email and password on the home page.
From your account screen you can perform the functions listed below:
- Load case studies from the library by clicking on the “View Library” button in the upper right corner of the screen (arrow 1).
- Click “Help” button to open new tab with online guide (arrow 1).
- Create a new supply chain from scratch by clicking on the “Create a New Supply Chain” button (arrow 2).
- Upload a supply chain model sent to you by another SCM Globe User by clicking on the “Upload Save File” button (arrow 3).
- See when your account expires and purchase more time as needed (see note above for free extension of student accounts). Before your account expires click on the purple “Purchase More Time” button on the right side of the screen (arrow 4). This will take you to the payment screen.
