ADVANCED E-COMMERCE MANAGEMENT BASED ON THE DROPSHIPMENT MODEL

SideUp Reply™ Dropship Solution (DSS) facilitates the use of the dropshipment model for e-Commerce shipments: coordinates and oversees the entire cycle, from the supplier request, preparation of the order, packaging of the products and handoff to the courier. The model does not only take into account shipments, but also after sales services such as home installations or pickups.
The entire e-Commerce logistics process is effectively managed and monitored using dashboards, KPI charts and real-time notifications.

THE SOLUTION

THE SOLUTION

Dropshipping is an advanced e-Commerce technique that enables suppliers to prepare and ship products ordered by the end customer. This model, which has seen increasing application, guarantees considerable benefits, including:

  • A broader product range available on the e-Commerce site
  • Lower warehouse logistics costs
  • Fewer stock shortages
  • Reduction in financial flows, with products purchased from suppliers only after their sale

The application of the Dropshipment model introduces a more complex and intricate interaction with suppliers and couriers. A careful organisation is therefore essential for maintaining the quality of the shopping experience without sacrificing KPIs related to the punctuality and completeness of deliveries.

SideUp Reply™ Dropship is the perfect solution for taking advantage of the benefits offered by this model, without reducing quality and control. The cloud solution offers strong advantages within a model in which tens to hundreds of suppliers and couriers are involved and tightly integrated.

Dropship SideUp Reply™ is a simple and convenient solution for suppliers to adopt, and it offers various levels of integration: from complete system-system integration using web services, to a lighter collaboration based on a Web portal.

Graphical KPIs and dashboards make it possible to guarantee the efficiency of the process and monitor order fulfilment activities, facilitating an integrated view of the progress of Dropshipment orders, as well as those handled using internal logistics.
