SaaS Solution Delivers Near Real-Time Information on Inventory Levels

SPS Commerce, a leading provider of on-demand supply chain management solutions, today announced that Pandigital Inc., a leading supplier of digital entertainment products, is using its Trading Partner Intelligence service to provide weekly sales information and analysis from 10 of its major retail customers to its sales teams. The SPS service equips Pandigital’s sales managers, analysts, and outside sales representatives with near real-time information on inventory levels, leading to proactive discussions with their retail customers to accurately determine when products should be replenished.

SPS Commerce’s Trading Partner Intelligence service provides a consolidated view of sell-through information from retailers, with point-of-sale (POS) information from more than 100 retailers and grocers. It serves as an early alert system regarding the most current in-store inventory conditions. This information is used to help prevent stock outs and to also work collaboratively with buyers to improve sales.

“Most of our retailers rely on us to know when to replenish our products and appropriate quantities to ship,” stated JC Young, Vice President of Operations at Pandigital. “With Trading Partner Intelligence, our sales teams are smarter about these decisions. Sell through information is at their fingertips, and Pandigital doesn’t need to normalize or secure this POS data; it’s part of SPS’ service.”

“During the 2009 holiday season, SPS’ intelligence service helped our sales team to monitor on-hand inventory levels and secure additional orders when items were running low due this high-volume selling season,” commented Dean Finnegan, CEO at Pandigital. “Our retailers are learning to rely on Pandigital more to enhance their overall sales as we are more informed and able to proactively help them manage their inventory to avoid out of stocks and maximize sales opportunities.”

Trading Partner Intelligence is delivered via a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, providing suppliers with retail industry and data integration expertise, proven technology, and reliable customer support. Using only an internet browser, users can access ad-hoc or predefined role-based reports, charts, graphs and alerts for improved decision making using POS and fulfillment data.

“We are pleased that Pandigital seen a positive impact to their inventory optimization efforts and retailer relationships since starting to use Trading Partner Intelligence in October,” commented Archie Black, President and CEO of SPS Commerce. “This on-demand service is designed to improve the collaboration and performance between trading partners, namely retailers and suppliers. We are growing the service to include inventory information from additional retailers every week to provide more value and insight to our customers.”
