The style-colour-size matrix functionality is embedded into every data entry function in Inventory and Job Projects. For example, within inventory we have the ability to use SapphireOne’s MRP (material resource planning) tool which incorporates analytical predictive purchasing, allowing the user to dynamically create purchase orders and bill of materials (BOM) thus saving enormous amounts of data entry time as this function is fully automated. This very powerful MRP (material resource planning) table matrix ability facilitates forecast demand accuracy, improved allocation and replenishment, and accurate inventory control, critically managing seasonal buying, production and sales. The Season is an inbuilt field in the SapphireOne inventory table which in turn allows the user to report, sort, and search by season. SapphireOne also has an Indent field which in turn links to an indent season.

To manage orders and pay vendors on time, large organisations use electronic data interchange (EDI). EDI decreases the order-to-cash cycle time, i.e. suppliers to retailers get paid faster. This helps to maximise efficiency and minimise errors. EDI improves speed, accuracy, security and trade communication. More than just a data format, EDI is a system or method for exchanging business documents with external entities and integrating the data from those documents into your internal systems. Without EDI capabilities, a business has a greater risk of revenue loss from chargeback penalties, loss of opportunity to the processing delay, loss of reputation and credit with customers.
SPS Commerce’s fulfilment EDI has hundreds of document types covering most transaction types that are commonly used among vendors and suppliers. With a singular focus on the retail marketplace, SPS commerce has revolutionised traditional EDI systems, by developing a model that is the most cost-effective and reliable in the industry.
