Retail Merchandise Distribution
Retail Merchandise Distribution is SAP's processes for allocating and distributing articles to retail stores or directly to customers. SAP IS-Retail, the retail variant of the ERP software, includes additional functionality to support stores orders, merchandise allocation, fair share algorithms, cross docking (Retail and standard ERP) and flow-through processes. This functionality supports the roles of planning, managing and executing merchandise distribution to stores and customers.
The Retail Merchandise Distribution module is a core component of the SAP Retail enterprise system. The retail business processes are fully integrated and interact with a number of other key areas, including:
- Inventory Management
- Warehouse Management
- Transportation Planning
- Foreign Trade
Mobilising Merchandise Distribution
Retail Merchandise Distribution transactions can be mobilised in the distribution centre using SAP transactions and different technologies such as RFID, SAPConsole, ITSMobile integration and Voice control. Mobilisation can bring significant benefits to our customer's processes in terms of speed, accuracy, labour management and repeatability. Processes can be mobilised with mobile RF devices either as a web based GUI or VT220 text based devices and mobile printers.
In store inventory and physical inventory processes can be mobilised using the SAP In Store Inventory management solution, a component of SAP Retail store, allowing the benefits of mobilised processes to be introduced to stores.
