Features & Benefits: Global Inventory & Sourcing
Gain more control in managing your global inventory and determine the best location from which to fulfill orders based on configurable sourcing rules. You can determine the most cost effective location for you and how you can best meet your customer varied requirements.
Intelligent sourcing engine
The sourcing engine lets you define and optimize how orders are fulfilled from all available inventory. Configurable business rules let you decide on the most cost effective source. A weighting system provides you with further flexibility to control sourcing decisions and provide the quickest transit time or in store pickup for customers.
Multi-source inventory view
Increase the visibility of all of your inventory to improve sales velocity. Turn inventory faster with a single view of “available to sell” products across all of your channels. This will help to increase your revenue and reduce “out of stock” losses online and markdowns that may not have sold in the store.
Inventory aggregation model to segment by channel
All stock is aggregated and made available to sell from any location, both online or in store. You can then further refine and publish this aggregated view of inventory to your various channels. Each channel will receive the appropriate inventory allocation based on your pre-defined business rules to better manage what gets sold where.
Real-time adjustments ensuring stock accuracy
The value of order management is not simply an inventory count, but it is the power of having a single source of truth of what products are available to sell from all sources. The system keeps track of all of your in-flight orders and notifies other inventory systems in real-time to maintain accurate stock levels.
Safety stock management
As the OMS is in real-time communication with the warehouse, drop shippers and store inventory systems, it receives a stock update and automatically recalculates the stock available to sell. This includes safety stock calculations where your thresholds can be defined at the source or aggregate level.
