Fulfillment Data Integration is an area of strength for the AMS IT Department!
Because of our extensive experience and our understanding of how to properly conduct the process, Data Integration is one of our strengths. This includes choosing the proper data path for all business activity, and how best to manage Available to Sell (ATS) inventory when product is being sold through multiple channels (Wholesale, E-commerce, Drop Ship… etc.).
AMS utilizes a variety of data exchange methodologies, including EDI, APIs, text files/CSV and XML, much of which is dependent upon client needs. As always, AMS is a flexible partner when it comes to fulfillment data integration!
ERP Integration: Nearly every client we partner with requires an ERP integration, and AMS plays a leading role in conducting the process. AMS has effectively integrated with a large number of ERP’s, including SAP, NetSuite, Sage, Microsoft Dynamics, Bright Pearl, QuickBooks and a variety of client legacy systems.
E-commerce Integration: At AMS, our distribution fulfillment services involve integration with a large number of shopping cart programs, including Magento, Shopify, osCommerce, X-Cart, opencart and Volusion. AMS will pass as much data as the software can handle, including inventory information, automated returns notifications, and order detail that can be used for self-service customer service features in more robust online e-commerce platforms.
Drop Ship Integrations: AMS has established a large number of drop ship integrations on behalf of our clients, including such e-commerce entities as QVC.com, Walmart.com, Macy’s, Amazon, Nordstrom.com, Bloomingdales.com, Nieman Marcus, Kohl’s, Shoe Buy and more! In environments where multiple drop shippers are selling from the same inventory, our distribution fulfillment services tools and processes allow online sellers to maximize sales without over extending product availability.
EDI Integration with Retailers: AMS Fulfillment is adept at EDI, whether it’s an ERP integration with a client, or managing EDI and routing requirements with major chain retailers. AMS’ IT Department is highly involved in all facets of EDI and retail routing compliance, including receiving purchase orders, compliance labeling (UCC-128, GS1-128, carton contents labels… etc.), invoicing, advanced shipping notifications (ASN’s) and generating master item catalogs whether it be from GXS or another provider. For ASN’s, AMS strategizes with each client to ensure notifications are always sent in a timely manner, whether they come directly from AMS or through the client’s ERP upon receipt of order/carton contents data from AMS.
