Distributed Order Management

Distributed Order Management

Leverage all your resources fully to deliver orders in full, on time, all the time.

Distributed Order Management is the perfect solution for Retailers looking to use their store networks to compete on service with improved DIFOT and shorter delivery times. It also enables businesses to move away from traditional ERP/WMS products.

Distributed Order Management is also a perfect solution for Franchise chains looking to overcome the traditional eCommerce hesitance from franchisees. Distributed Order Management provides Franchise store owners with a path to online. For example, one of eStar’s clients has seen this as a sea-change in the business perception of online, with in store sales growth being directly influenced in a positive way from the implementation of store-based fulfilment.

Split orders, partial fulfilment, backorders

Adapting when needed

Occasionally, not all items in an order are available to fulfil at once. The eStar platform supports split and partial fulfilment (partial split) order processing, as well as backorder processing and management. eStar payment processing automatically handles splits and partial splits.

The customer is notified at each point: when an item is backordered or deleted, when an order is split or voided, and when an item is returned.
