To Fill or To Kill - That is the Question....


Costly Back Orders and Freight and Track lost sales in Real-Time 

Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune, Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles...  Ok so it's not exactly the same thing , but if you customers need it now and will source it elsewhere if you dont have a product on the shelf ready to ship,. Then you have to look at the Fill/Kill dilemma. 

Many option's exist in the MDS system to either drop ship, cross dock, special order or alternate location ship products.. but in the event your customer needs it and you don't have it and can't get it right away - with the the update MDS Fill/Kill logic you can now gain visibility in real time to killed orders and send EDI acknowledgements to customer in real time advising them the items are out of stock and will not be shipping.. 

Save time , money, and frustration as the system will now manage the process of alerting the customer and making sure you dont order items that they will not accept..
