Omni-channel fulfillment | Software AG
With increased competition from the Web and other brick-and-mortar stores, retailers today are relying on omni-channel fulfillment and order orchestration strategies in order to maintain profitability. Omni-channel fulfillment solves one of the biggest challenges for retailers—making sure that products are available at the time and place customers are ready to purchase them. Omni-channel fulfillment matches merchandise to consumer demand across all channels in all systems, integrating existing inventory, shipment and third-party systems into a single view of product mix. A superior omni-channel fulfillment solution is like equipping every piece of merchandise with a GPS beacon and giving store staff access to real-time inventory data.
When seeking a powerful omni-channel fulfillment solution, more retailers today are turning to Software AG.
