Yes, OPAL will process your drop ship orders in 8 seconds or less, 24 hours a day, with 100% EDI compliance and zero EDI document costs across all of the retailers and e-tailers that you’re working with.
But maybe, even more importantly, OPAL is configured to each business’ financial needs and processes – small or large, one size and process does not have to “fit all” businesses.
OPAL is the only self-driving drop ship and order fulfillment software solution in the market today. OPAL automates receiving orders from retailers and e-tailers, manages all EDI transactions, processes and invoices orders through a supplier’s ERP and accounting system, and creates packing slips and custom branded 3rd party shipping labels per any retailer’s or e-tailer’s requirements. Once shipped, it sends back tracking information and invoices to the retailer or e-tailer, as well as tracking packages and sending inventory updates.
So what does this REALLY mean to an e-commerce business? Joe Miller, CIO of REACHbarrier, a company that provides an easy, affordable way for homeowners to save on energy costs by reducing their energy consumption experienced this common problem:
“We have products that sell for $11-$15 and were unable to sell them on-line due to the order processing cost. With OPAL we were able to lower our order processing cost to $.50 cents or less an order, opening up a whole new sales avenue to us. In addition, it used to take two people to process 100 orders per day. Now, we process thousands of orders daily during peak periods.”
In addition, have you ever thought about how many EDI documents you’re paying for per order? Well, for a simple drop ship order you are going to need at least five and the average order file size is 1KC (one thousand characters). Each one costs an average of $.06 cents to send or receive. That may not seem like a lot, but here’s what Victoria Bouldin, Vice President of Primetime Petz experienced:
“We sell our pet gates to the top 20 retailers in the market and were paying $1,100 per month in EDI charges.With OPAL all of that is gone. The other thing that we really like about OPAL is that it has taken all of the errors out of our order processing. Everything is accurate and everything ships on time. It’s enabled me to focus on growing the business without having to worry about managing order processing.”
