What does Order Management mean in an Omni-channel world?

 SCApath provides deep domain expertise to design and implement customer order management solutions required to execute an Omni-channel business strategy.


he paradigm has shifted from fixed supply chains dedicated to a single channel to flexible supply chains servicing many channels all driven by customers demanding an order anywhere, receive anywhere, return anywhere buying experience.

Executing against this customer promise requires orders to be sourced from multiple supply pools (or locations) and delivered through multiple channels. The speed and agility required by supply chain processes and systems in a Global Marketplace is significant.

Omni-channel Challenges:

  • In-Store, Online, Mobile, Call Center, & Social Path to Purchase
  • Global, Multi-Echelon Supply Chains
  • Customer Service Expectations are Channel Neutral
  • Speed & Depth of Customer Knowledge
  • Decreasing Customer Demand Predictability

Order Management Implications:

  • Cross-Channel View of Inventory is Required
  • Accurate Inventory, Distribution, and Transportation Costs are needed to optimize order sourcing decision
  • Store and In-Transit inventory should be available to meet order demands
  • Stores must be equipped to fill on-line orders providing a consistent customer experience
  • Distribution and Transportation Capacity is Required
  • Order Orchestration from multiple distribution points is required to meet customer expectations
