Visibility and complexity are key challenges

Managing the growing complexity of today’s logistics networks, many with multiple warehouse locations and distribution levels, is a challenge. Even more so when different orders are processed through several warehouses, or with different means of transport, which is increasingly common in today’s e-commerce environment. Our Distributed Order Management solution coordinates the tasks between the ERP, the warehouse and the transportation management systems. In doing so, it:

  • Removes the lack of transparency in inventories, warehouse workloads and transport capacities
  • Finds best warehouse and transport options for order fulfillment
  • Reduces the cost of order fulfillment, especially when orders need to be filled from multiple warehouses
  • Enables compliance with more stringent customer service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Gives suppliers, service providers and customers the required visibility into goods flows
  • Provides accurate records for movements and distributed supply chain processes across the network

An integrated solution to optimize network transparency

Our Distributed Order Management is an integrated supply chain solution that provides control at the network level. It allows you to monitor and efficiently manage multiple warehouses, distribution levels and transportation options, for your complete supply chain network. The ability to manage your logistics network holistically helps ensure your orders are fulfilled accurately, on time and cost-effectively, as well as accurate Availability-to-promise (ATP).
