Join SPS for learnings amidst the chaos at NRF

by | Jan 7, 2019

Start your year off right by learning from our drop ship and retail experts at the NRF Big Show. Your 2019 checklist likely includes new systems, channels, categories, and more. If you’re changing, your vendors and carriers will need to change too.

Attend any of the 10-minute Meetups listed below at SPS Commerce booth #2625 to hear from our retail experts (former retail practitioners like you) as they offer proven advice. No sales pitches – just information you can use.

Monday:

10:30 a.m. Transform Your Vendor Meetings
Our experts will share their proven tips on how to structure these discussions to make data-based decisions that boost sales performance and mutually benefit both parties.

12:00 p.m. Ready Your Vendors for Your 2019 Plans

You have big plans for 2019 including replacing systems, advancing processes, changing operations and perhaps adding new sales channels. Each of these changes will require vendors to do something new or different. At NRF, SPS Commerce experts will discuss how and when to engage your vendors and carriers in your plan and tips for improving their compliance.

1:30 p.m. Start or Expand Your Drop ship Program
Starting or growing a drop ship program requires vendors to excel at providing you with visibility to inventory, shipments and returns. Attend this session to discover the considerations and related actions to engage a drop ship vendor and deliver a positive experience for your customer.

3:00 p.m. Setup Your New Items

Once you’ve decided to carry a new item online, in-store, or both, you can’t recognize sales from this decision until the item is set up in your systems and available for purchase. Item setup delays cost you and your category sales. At NRF, our expert will explain how to streamline this process from days to hours with proven techniques for making item setup quick and error-free.

Tuesday:

10:30 a.m. Ready Your Vendors for Your 2019 Plans [Repeat]
You have big plans for 2019 including replacing systems, advancing processes, changing operations and perhaps adding new sales channels. Each of these changes will require vendors to do something new or different. At NRF, SPS Commerce experts will discuss how and when to engage your vendors and carriers in your plan and tips for improving vendor compliance.

12:00 p.m. Eliminate Reconciliation Issues
Calling all Finance professionals: Are you paying for more product than you ordered? And received? For many, these questions are answered by a quandary of spreadsheets and emails. Our experts will introduce you to a three-way match order-to-invoice reconciliation process that automatically validates that your order, your shipment(s) and your vendor’s invoice align. You can manage by exception, letting the majority of invoices process without you (or your spreadsheets).

See you soon in The Big Apple at the Big Show!
