The Service Level Manager application provides control and exception- based management above and beyond the pre-packaged global alerts. By configuring specific Service Level Definitions for specific business situations, a retailer can hone the performance of its fulfillment network and proactively eliminate problems.
You can create Drop-Ship Master® Service Level Definitions that focus on a vendor, group of vendors, order state, SKU or time interval. Definitions provide multiple severity levels ensuring proper prioritization and management of fulfillment issues or delays. When an order violates the terms of a definition, you are alerted via a Service Level Exception.
Inventory Management enables you to synchronize inventory levels and pricing updates between your systems and your supplier network, greatly reducing costly back order scenarios. It consolidates supplier availability feeds into a single feed for the retailer, delivered in the retailer’s preferred format.
Suppliers can provide inventory updates to the Supply-on-Demand platform in any native format including: spreadsheet, XML, EDI, flat file, customized file formats, and manually via the web. This makes it easy for a supplier to comply with your need for inventory information.
LTL Manager tracks shipments from the time the supplier hands off the product to the carrier, be it the last mile carrier or an intermediate LTL carrier, all the way until the product is delivered to the customer’s home. Know where your customer’s order is, who is delivering it, and when it will be delivered.
Product Returns Manager provides complete visibility and control over the product return process, from the carrier pick-up all the way to delivery to a supplier or your own warehouse. The supplier-managed returns application enables you to maintain a branded customer experience without the costly double handling of returned merchandise.
