What problem does KhooCommerce fix for Amazon Vendors?
Servicing Vendor without an EDI solution can be time-costly, highly manual and incur chargebacks through avoidable issues.
KhooCommerce saves time across Sales/Operations, Dispatch, through reducing chargebacks and implementing LPR
1. Unlock Productivity within your Sales & Operations Team
Managing sales through the Amazon Vendor portal tends to be a highly manual task, usually consuming 15-20hrs/week, or almost half an FTE’s time.
2. Reduce your Amazon Vendor chargebacks
- PO Related Issues – Confirming POs in a timely manner etc.
- Receive Related Issues – Any compliance inbound issues when a shipment arrives at an Amazon FC. i.e. incorrect labelling
- Prep Related Issues – i.e. not using correct bags for items
- ASN Related Issues – When an ASN is not sent correctly from Vendor Central
- Transportation Related Issues– Vendors failing to set up routing requests for transporting packages
3. Control your stock across your omni-channel presence
The integrated KhooCommerce platform ensures you are always in control of your stock levels across your various online presences. Amazon Vendor orders automatically asses your stock levels and are processed accordingly.
4. Expand beyond Amazon Vendor
To be selling on Amazon Vendor, your product is highly popular and clearly a good value proposition for Amazon Vendor. To build your business in the long term, you can build up a customer base, outside of Amazon Vendor using your own online presence.
5. Improve your business efficiency
Ultimately software improves the efficiency of your business processes and gives you time back to get on with running your business (or spending on the things most important to you!).
What is EDI?
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange): a form of data exchange between a client and a server. In the case of Amazon Vendor, this refers to EDI messages sent around the purchase orders processing and invoices. There are 6 main EDI messages, 4 of which we tend to implement.
EDI is enabled through a connection between a client and a server, which is provided by AS2 (Applicability Standard 2), ensuring the transfer of EDI messages in a secure, efficient way. In Amazon's own words, this tie is "designed to take the normal business to business processes and accelerate and automate them to help reduce costs and improve efficiency as our companies interact.”
