Please refresh the page once your verification is complete.

Creating a new company profile:

If your company is already registered on the platform, you are all set up to invite team members, suppliers and to build your first request. Our system will link your email address to your company's account.

If your company is not already registered on the platform, you are required to create a new company profile.

Complete all the mandatory fields marked with an * and any other information you are able to provide within:

  4. Profile picture for your company.

After completing company information, please fill in the personal segment & check the box confirming you have authorisation.

You can also build your profile by choosing Products & Services tags which best describe your company's capabilities.

Once your company profile is created you will automatically join the DeepStream Network.

How to invite team members to work with you:

If you want to work with multiple team members (Or other departments) you’ll need to invite team members to the platform.

Note: You need to be an administrator to invite new Team Members.

Administrators are Full User team members with manage users permissions at a company level. There’s no limit to how many administrators you profile can have but this may affect your billing.

To get started inviting new team members head to the navigation bar and click the dropdown arrow on the right. Select manage team.

Click add user and fill in the following information fields:

  1. User's first and last name

  2. Email address

Next, set the new user's permissions.

How to invite suppliers to DeepStream:

Any of your suppliers who do not already have an account with DeepStream will need to be invited to sign up (this is completely free & should take 3-5 minutes!)

To invite a supplier you will need the company name & email address.

First ensure you're logged into the platform & select Network in the top bar:

On the right, click send an invite

Supplier information fields will open and request:

  1. Email address*

  2. First & last name

  3. Company name*

If their company is already registered with DeepStream, their name will appear in the dropdown menu.

If not, write the full name of the company & click create company at the bottom of the drop down menu.

The supplier can create their company profile when they sign up.

You can invite as many suppliers as you want following the process above.

Once you have added all the suppliers you would like to invite, click continue which will take you to the invitation you can customise before it gets sent to your suppliers.

Review the invitations and then send!
