OneView Commerce, provider of digital point of sale (POS), is adding a new benefit for omnichannel retailers. OneView is integrating its Inventory Management solution with IBM Order Management to optimise order orchestration efficiency through a global view of inventory right from the store's point of sale (POS).
"This integration delivers tremendous value to omnichannel retailers," said OneView Chief Operating Officer, Linda Palanza. "Now store associates can use Inventory Management's real-time global view of inventory to search for out-of-stock products and offer customers the fastest and most convenient delivery and pick-up options—in a single transaction, from a single POS device."
This single-device, single-transaction capability also saves equipment costs, enables more efficient use of labour, and powers cross-channel transactions such as buy online/pick up in store. OneView's Inventory Management essentially transforms each store into a warehouse while IBM Order Management then expedites the most efficient movement of products among stores and distribution centres.
