Being Shipper Friendly with SciQuest 

SciQuest is Yale's online catalog and ordering solution. This electronic requisitioning tool helps you to locate best pricing with University’s preferred suppliers, find an item available through the Yale stockrooms, and compare products across suppliers.  'Shipper-friendly' shipping information is stored in your shipping profile and is key to accurately and expediently receiving your SciQuest orders. To update your profile, go to “My Profile” on the purchasing tab and select “Shipping Address”. Make sure you have at least two addresses, one traditional receiving address that serves your location, and a Yale Direct (desktop) address which is the street address for your personal office, lab or business office. For each specific ship to address you have stored in your profile, please be sure to update the following fields as necessary:

Deliver To Dept - Shorten the department name to make it recognizable.
Deliver To Building/Room # - Fill in this information to make the shipping information more specific.
Attention - You may change this if you need your orders shipped to someone else.

Please reference the "Quick Reference" guide for more SciQuest tips.
