Vantage Point addresses these scenarios and thereby removes the burden from the ERP and supporting systems to handle the nuances of different partners including suppliers, customers, aggregators and third party public warehouses.
Vantage Point understands the ERP’s view of the world and helps resolve partner requirements and limitations without ERP customization. It streamlines advanced challenges such as resolution of Bill of Material (BOM) data in the ERP to implode/explode assortment relationships to internal sku’s and vice-a-versa.
