Yes, OPAL will process your drop ship orders in 5-8 seconds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with 100% of the Vendor Compliance required by your retailer and with NO EDI COST! It will even simplify and reduce the steps required to do pallet shipments.
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 (think ROBOTIC) order fulfillment software solution in the market today that:
Automates receiving orders from retailers and e-tailers
Manages all EDI transactions
Invoices orders in your accounting system
Sends inventory feeds to your retailers based upon their compliance requirements
Creates Packing Slips, custom branded 3rd party Shipping Labels per any retailer’s or e-tailer’s requirements, Bills of Lading and UCC128 labels
And, once shipped, it sends back tracking information and invoices to the retailer or e-tailer, as well as tracking packages.
All WITHOUT ANYONE managing the order or touching a keyboard. All you need to do is pick, pack and ship product from the warehouse.
It even has Warehouse Management capabilities that can increase the efficiency and output of your warehouse, increasing daily shipments by more than 25%!
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 around $.06 cents. 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.”
