Dicentral’s Inventory Control and Order Management Solution Enables Magoformers’ Omni-Channel Dropship Program
HOUSTON - August 31, 2016 Magformers, an industry leader in magnetic building toys for children, chose DiCentral, a leading innovator in supply chain management and B2B integration solutions, to implement an inventory control and order management solution to help them comply with retailer guidelines and automate large volumes of orders.
The results of the implementation allowed Magformers to automate their drop ship program, reduce manual data entry, add new customers and generate over $1 million in new revenue.
“We had to manually enter and fulfill large volumes of orders within a short period of time. It was impossible to continue processing the orders manually. We needed a solution that could scale and automate our dropship process”, says Jon Gorman, Director of Finance and Logistics.
“The DiCentral solution has allowed us to remove manual activity in the order fulfillment process and seamlessly integrate orders with QuickBooks. In addition, the solution enabled better inventory visibility, compliant labeling, and carrier-integration for the delivery of product”.
Prior to deploying DiCentral’s solutions, Magformers struggled to process orders cost effectively, efficiently, and in compliance with the guidelines of retailers. As a result, the company experienced inventory issues, low retailer scorecard performance, and incurred chargebacks.
“DiCentral continuously strives to help companies like Magformers minimize operational disruption in their supply chain, and maximize efficiency through inventory control and order management solutions that extend the life of their accounting software,” says Thuy Mai, president and CEO of DiCentral. “We are thrilled to see our solutions enable Magformers to bridge the gap between a traditional replenishment model and omni-channel dropship program.”
