Editor’s Note: Beginning this week, we’ll bring you an operations and fulfillment tip of the week, courtesy of the consulting firm, F. Curtis Barry & Co. These tips will lead up to our inaugural interactive workshop for multichannel merchants on choosing direct commerce systems. (See below for more details.) — Paul Miller, editor-in-chief
While converting from one order management system to another, it’s best not to try to convert the open customer orders and open purchase orders. Instead, rekey these to eliminate the risk of improper conversion. This also gives the staff a little extra “practice” with the system.
Catalog Success and F. Curtis Barry & Co. are co-presenting the two-day interactive workshop, “Evaluating, Selecting and Implementing Direct Commerce Systems,” June 17-18 in Richmond, Va. For registration and other information, go to www.fcbco.com/seminar .
