Third Party Fulfilment Houses work in a highly dynamic environment. OrderFlow 3PL responds to the challenges this creates by providing a uniquely structured approach to channel and organisation management.
OrderFlow 3PL makes the initial setup of key system data, such as products, locations and suppliers, very simply by supporting a bulk import of all the key setup data in Microsoft Excel spreadsheet format.
OrderFlow 3PL provides a structured workflow around channel and organisation setup. When an organisation or channel is initially added to the system, it will be in the test state. During this this phase, all data – including products, orders, etc. – associated with the channel will be clearly marked as such. After all the necessary configuration changes have been made, the organisation or channel is moved to the live state. Prior to this, OrderFlow allows you to completely clear down any test data created, in order to start from a clean up.
OrderFlow 3PL makes creation of new channel or organisation configurations for new customers or sales channels really simple by supporting a channel or organisation cloning mechanism. This allows the configuration data for a new channel or organisation to be created from an existing working configuration. The system clearly identifies configuration data which may need to be verified following this cloning process, making it straightforward to create new configurations in a safe and efficient manner.
Channel and organisation configuration information is arranged in a hierarchy which allows shared configuration to be reused wherever possible, reducing the need for replicating configuration information unnecessarily.
