Omnichannel Commerce in NetSuite
While essential, the capability to quickly capitalize on market opportunities, stave off competition, enter new markets and form new business alliances can all present significant technological and business process roadblocks. Sometimes, the knee jerk reaction is to build a manual workaround – or yet another spreadsheet – but that only leads to more disjointed processes and pain. Other times, it implies building a new technology silo and managing an integration process to keep those systems in sync.
A typical use case we might see is one in which a mature industrial supply, retailer, importer or manufacturing business is launching a new product line or entering a new market segment – one that might require a new business model and enhanced functionality including:
- Integrated EDI
- 3PL Warehousing and Transportation Partners.
- Integration with new sources of supply such as drop ship distribution & manufacturing partners
- Expanded consumer marketing efforts
- Expanded product and customer data
- Partnerships with various e-commerce platforms including e-commerce leaders like Amazon, Shopify and others.
- Deployment of your own company e-commerce, point-of-sale (POS) and customer portal platforms
And let’s not forget – all of this needs to be done while maintaining your current, day to day business processes, while also ensuring that these new channels share inventory, customers and resources. Sound familiar? Well it should – many of our clients are finding new fortune by going direct to consumer with new products and channels and therefore need modern, unified systems and solutions to help manage this new paradigm.
