NetSuite optimises omnichannel fulfillment with intelligent order management

By

NetSuite has announced the release of NetSuite Intelligent Order Management. The new capabilities unveiled today help meet rising customer expectations and streamline the constantly-evolving complexities of omnichannel order orchestration. Merchants get the intelligence and automation needed to help use inventory more efficiently, reduce shipping costs and improve the customer experience.

NetSuite Order Management is one of the most widely used cloud-based, order management solutions in the world, according to a company media release.. In 2015, merchants using NetSuite’s solution transacted more than 246 million orders, a 46% increase from 2014.

The total dollar order volume exceeded US$180.5 billion in 2015, a 32% increase from 2014. Merchants continue to adopt NetSuite’s order management solution at rapid pace, according to IDC1, for B2B and B2C channels – website, mobile, in store, phone, direct sales and system-to-system.

Built on this success and momentum, NetSuite, in this new release, adds intelligent omnichannel order allocation so merchants can automate how to best fulfill orders based on their inventory availability and the configurable business rules they establish inside NetSuite.

The functionality helps turn omnichannel shoppers into brand advocates with reduced stockouts, prompt delivery and a multitude of fulfillment options from wherever a merchant holds inventory. Merchants are better equipped to meet demand, increase inventory turns and reduce safety stocks, and are better able to scale their business while keeping labor costs flat.

NetSuite helps merchants efficiently manage fulfillment, eliminate manual work and manage only by exception. In addition, NetSuite’s cloud-based technology deploys quickly and allows merchants to iterate rapidly as their business evolves.

NetSuite’s new intelligent order capabilities facilitate the perfect order with the following functionality:

Order sourcing and allocation. NetSuite’s automatic location assignment allows vendors to optimize for reduced costs, faster delivery or a combination of factors to enable a fulfill-from-anywhere solution across all channels.

Release for fulfillment. Merchants get control over their release-for-fulfillment process with a second, automated process, which decides when to release orders and notifies each fulfillment location of which order to fulfill. Fulfillment managers get full visibility into the process – released orders, fulfillment status, and order exceptions.

Exception management. Merchants can automatically handle most order exceptions so the business scales with fixed headcount. NetSuite attempts to fulfill exception orders then informs the CSR or fulfillment manager of an unfilled order. Exceptions caused by inventory discrepancies are automatically flagged for resolution.

Store pickup. Merchants control which locations and items participate in the pickup process. NetSuite updates sales orders for store pickups and mixed orders. Once received, fulfillment requests are automatically generated, notifying a store of the order. When inventory is selected, the system notifies the customer their order is ready.

Ship from store. Merchants can save the sale by fulfilling from stores to meet customer demand, increase inventory turns and reduce markdowns. Merchants control which locations and items participate in the shipping process, while managing store capacity and inventory buffering to balance in-store and ecommerce fulfillment.

Order management insight and KPIs. Merchants empower operations managers to measure their attainment of the perfect order with insight and intelligence, from promising and allocation, to orchestration and fulfillment, through to payments and returns.

ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.


Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
