For many years, Retail Backbone has integrated with manufacturers to capture supplier-level inventory and facilitate drop-shop ordering. However, this process was time-consuming due to the specific data requirements of each manufacturer. Amid our partnership with Moosejaw Mountaineering, we established a relationship with SPS Commerce to streamline the data exchange between the retailer and vendor. SPS Commerce offers a "one-stop shop" for hundreds of vendors, allowing Retail Backbone to leverage a single point of data exchange.
Today’s technology has impacted how retailers do business from start to finish. Consumers want quick, easy access to products, both in stores and online, and retailers must meet these demands to stay competitive. Accommodating these needs is a huge undertaking for retailers to take on in-house, and it’s a daunting task to cover all of the bases necessary to ensure a seamless consumer experience. Here at Retail Backbone, we have learned the pain points of our clients when it comes to order fulfillment strategies, and we often find ourselves pointing them in the same direction for a solution…to SPS Commerce. SPS Commerce is an industry-leading supply chain management solution that specializes in enhancing retailers’ multi-channel business. They are devoted to working with retailers and suppliers to ensure an ideal experience for consumers in today’s retail marketplace.
Although consumers don’t see the behind-the-scenes processes that take place to get products at their fingertips, retailers understand how strong their procedures and business relationships must be to provide consumers with the service and accessibility they expect. Creating a strong supply chain is essential to maintaining effective business relationships and processes. SPS Commerce maintains a cloud-based Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system that promotes communication and collaboration between business partners.
