EDI, digital catalogue
EDI stands for electronic data interchange, the electronic exchange of information between the supplier and the retail organization. The catalogues of the various suppliers are imported into the system. In this way, the user has the possibility to configure all the possible items in an intuitive and fast way. Orders for the manufacturer will be sent automatically, as well as the order confirmation, which is encoded later in the system without any manual intervention. Ordering non-existent items is impossible, the customer always receives the correct information and prices.
Not every manufacturer can provide a digital catalogue. eMeubel offers our customers the possibility to create a catalogue for each product range. The final result offers the same lay-out and way of working as a catalogue delivered by the manufacturer. Working with eCat, it's no longer necessary to create items individually. Administrative staff can create a thoughtful structure in the catalogue, so that your sales staff can directly enter the order with the customer.
Some suppliers can send the catalogues using a CSV format. These can then be imported into eMeubel. These lists mostly contain decoration items ( 'simple' items with not that many options).
A new item can easily be created starting from an existing one (e.g. same item with a different tissue or different dimensions). Let’s assume you sold an item that’s not available. A purchase order needs to be created; after a quick search, you realize that it doesn’t yet exist in the database. Common stock items can be copied and adjusted, then saved as a new item. You’ll then modify the options and specifications.
eMeubel manages multiple price lists. Working with our price listings will simplify the price setting process. You'll no longer need to perform manual calculations or input prices item by item. This allows you to save time and avoid unnecessary mistakes. It is possible to set the prices per supplier, including all the specific details like commercial discounts, mark up, financial discounts, etc.
When a new model or item is created, eMeubel automatically applies the terms agreed with the supplier and calculates the margins. Single items, models or collection prices can be changed manually.
In the price parameters it’s possible to set the mark up according to the supplier, model or item. The margin can vary from branch to branch and so do the prices. Every shop of the same group can have different prices for the same items.
Prices can be modified at any time. The prices can change according to the date as well (for example in January you can set the prices for the May and September sales)
eMeubel manages the price labels for all the single or grouped units (table + chairs, sofa + tea table). The document lay-out can be modified according to the customer’s needs and preferences.
