Leverage data to navigate retail disruption

2020 was a challenging year. The pandemic has changed the retail industry in many ways such as implementing new order fulfillment options, expanding your vendor community and optimizing eCommerce sales channels.

Widespread Business Impact

These challenges may have created gaps in the data and information you receive, requiring you to spend more time and allocate more resources into your supply chain. Missing key order and item information and bringing on new vendors creates critical business problems like:

  • Accurately managing vendor performance
  • Receiving bottlenecks in your distribution center
  • Time-consuming invoice reconciliation
  • Inability to confirm if order can be shipped on-time and complete
  • Missing item data leading to product delays in-store and online
