You can see UNFI Insights dashboards that are powered by Crisp within the myUNFI portal, but you can also access your UNFI Insights data directly within Crisp to take advantage of other Crisp features. Logging into or requesting a Crisp account allows you to access the following features at no cost: 

  • Export your data into other tools: You can add destination connectors, so you can analyze your UNFI data with tools used by your organization or access all the data fields available from UNFI (not just those that appear in dashboards). For a full list of available destination connectors, see gocrisp.com > Data Destinations.
  • Customize how product names and groupings appear in Crisp: You can use Crisp's Master data management tool (MDM) to view and edit product names, categories, and store groups. For more about MDM, see Managing products and store groups with master data manager (MDM).

You can also purchase other Crisp data source connectors to analyze your UNFI Insights data alongside data from other retailers and distributors in our Harmonized dashboards. For more information on available source connectors, see gocrisp.com > Data Sources.

  1. If you are accessing UNFI Insights data in Crisp for the first time, you need to set up an account or link an existing one by completing the following steps:
    • Log in to the myUNFI portal.
    • From the Supplier Reporting section, select the UNFI insights tile.

      A screen appears where you can request or link an existing account.

    • Select Link an existing Crisp Account.

    • From the Link an account screen that appears, enter the email address you use to log in to Crisp, then select the Send Verification Email button.
      Note: The email address associated with the myUNFI account you want to link to Crisp and the email address you use to link and log into Crisp must match. If the email address associated with your myUNFI account is not the email address you want to use to log in to Crisp, you need to contact UNFI to change the email associated with your myUNFI account.

    • Check your email for the verification email and follow the instructions to verify your account.
      Your account is linked to UNFI Insights.

    • Enter your first and last name, company name, email address, and select the checkbox to agree to Crisp's terms of service and data policy.
      Note: If your organization has only one myUNFI login, you can also only have one Crisp login connected to myUNFI. You may want to set up a dedicated email address for your organization to use to create the connection to Crisp, such as myUNFI_Crisp_organization_name@provider.com. If you are linking myUNFI to Crisp in order to access destination connectors (i.e., to pipe your data to another application), you may want to designate one person at your organization to manage the connection using their individual email address.

    • Select the Send Request button.

      Your request is sent and a Crisp account representative will reach out to you shortly to help finalize your setup.
  4. If you want to use additional Crisp features, such as destination connectors, editing products with Master Data Manager (MDM), or viewing UNFI Insights data alongside data from other retailers/distributors in our harmonized dashboards, you will need to add a UNFI Insights source connector by completing the following steps:
    • From the main menu on the left side of the screen, select Connectors.
