Onboarding to the network and using the supply chain platforms

The Onboarding platform contains all the steps and information for any organization to join the system. This includes creating a crypto wallet, launching a company node for the Unova test network and for the Unova main net, inviting other team members, adding multiple facilities who will be linked to the same company node and owned by the same main user, adding supply chain business partners, mapping the internal process to determine which data will be distributed, adding product types and images for each type and much more.

We have designed the onboarding platform to be user friendly, low code and allowing anyone to walk through the entire process. We recommend first getting in touch with Unova and setting up a pilot if you are the first of your industry to introduce the technology.

Capability #1
Create a crypto wallet

Unova wallets are applications that let you interact with your Unova account. Think of it like an internet banking app – without the bank. Your wallet lets you read your balance, send transactions, and connect to applications.

Your wallet is only a tool for managing your Unova account. That means you can swap wallet providers at any time. Many wallets also let you manage several Unova accounts from one application. That’s because wallets don’t have custody of your funds, you do. They’re just a tool for managing what’s really yours.

Capability #2
Launch a test node

The company node can be installed using the Node Onboarding Package (NOP). The NOP has a configurable UI which initiates services that allows deploying and setting up the node to a cloud or on-premises server with the necessary configuration that establishes a connection to the blockchain network and is also responsible in managing data processing.

Instead of making the company go through a long process to install all the different applications we have designed our NOP to install 10 applications in 1 command line. This is important because we follow the web3 principle that no central authority should control anything thus each member of the network is also hosting its own applications, so it is a fully trustless and decentralized infrastructure.

Capability #3
Launch a production node
Capability #4
Add facilities

During the signup flow you will receive your own private and public keys for the Blockchain system. These are the main keys and will be linked to the account owner admin panel with billing and other admin functions. These main keys and this account owner will now need to add a facility. Each facility will have its own private and public key assigned to it which is in a lower hierarchy and is linked to the account owner’s private key. The facility should be registered with the actual address of the production facility whereas the account owner can be registered with the address that will be put on the invoice.

Capability #5
Assign users & roles

You will likely want to assign different people to onboard your organization with each their own responsibilities. To invite your facility onboarding team, access the facility admin panel and go to ‘Users & Roles’. You will now be able to add different people and assign a role. Some roles will receive their own private and public key which will be linked to the facility keys.

Capability #6
Map your internal process

The purpose of the Unova Chain builder is to help you visualize, understand and create the events (or asset creations) that will occur inside your own company. This tool can also be considered as a settings page that will be used in other aspects of the Unova platform and impact the API. It is thus important you take care when building your chain and be accurate concerning the settings you select.

Capability #7
Add supply chain business partners

Our system creates the most value the more of your suppliers and customers are onboarded to the system. We thus encourage you to sit with your suppliers and customers and invite them to join the Unova ecosystem. You can simply invite them to join via email. If your supply chain partner is already part of the ecosystem you can simply add them to your partner list.

By having more supply chain partners onboarded you will notice your traceability score increase. We are very excited to see who the first company with perfect traceability will be and will reward this company with a big marketing campaign so this will not remain unnoticed.

Capability #8
Add product type images
Capability #9
Add company images & company logo
