Descartes Systems Group, a developer of on-demand software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics solutions, now offers the Descartes for Retail suite. This new retail software provides realtime visibility into deliveries, which allows companies to manage and move goods more effectively, improve data integrity, reduce transportation costs, handle promotions, improve inventory management, provide supplier and carrier score-carding, and enhance customer service.
The application for inbound shipments manages contract carriers by automating carrier bid, tendering, settlement, and freight auditing processes to allow for better efficiency and control of common carrier transportation moves. It also improves inventory visibility and flow, and provides customs compliance. For the facility, the solution provides dock scheduling and yard management, delivery performance, and facility layout and slotting. The software also helps to manage outbound shipments and includes territory analysis and service-day assignment, delivery-appointment scheduling, store and depot replenishment, last-mile delivery management, mobile and GPS tracking solutions, and sales and merchandiser management.
