Maintaining accurate inventory records is essential for success in today’s fast-paced, multichannel retail environment. Trouble is, it’s not easy. 

With orders arriving from wholesale buyers using EDI, and consumers making direct purchases through an e-commerce store, it becomes difficult to track. But there are solutions to manage inventory with EDI and e-commerce orders.

Inventory visibility for retailers. 

Today, it’s not just wholesale buyers who want to know about available stock—consumers often search a website first to see if an item is nearly sold out or available at a nearby store location for pickup. Being able to provide visibility into your inventory levels can be the difference between making or missing out on a sale.  

New channels and suppliers are added regularly when there is demand for your products. That makes the need for real-time inventory visibility more pressing. 


A seamless WMS integration

Integration brings inventory and order processing together and delivers the transparency needed in today’s retail environment.
