How the Amazon Warehouse Management System works

How the Amazon Warehouse Management System works

SkuVault's Amazon warehouse and inventory management system integration pulls your orders as well as your product data - including data such as SKU, product ID, name, item-type categorization, condition note, brand, price, description, and more. SkuVault then processes the order, and updates the new available quantities in real time to your Amazon store. SkuVault pulls orders via the integration, which allows SkuVault to provide an efficient pick list. We call it an "efficient" pick list, because SkuVault organizes the pick list by location, thereby creating a path for your pickers that leads them with the minimum amount of steps through your warehouse. SkuVault also offers advanced sales reports; take, for example, our brand and class report that gives you profit, sales total, weeks on hand, margins, turn, and more by product classifications or brands. SkuVault also supports per-SKU latency - this means you can set the Amazon handling time on a custom SKU level, which is useful when offering, for example, as part of a special, certain SKUs to be shipped faster. If you're on more than just Amazon, SkuVault can also pull orders from other channels or your shipping software so all pending sales from all channels come into SkuVault, allowing you to share quantities between channels and/or marketplaces.

Benefits of the Amazon Warehouse Management System

Benefits of the Amazon Warehouse Management System

SkuVault's Amazon inventory management system gives eCommerce businesses a way to manage their back end systems and processes with a seamless integration to one of the biggest front end sales platforms. The goal of SkuVault is to reflect what is actually happening in your facility with your inventory. If something gets scanned out for any reason, that quantity is removed from Amazon. Conversely, when you're receiving and putting stock into inventory locations, that additional quantity automatically gets reflected to Amazon. SkuVault supports multiple locations per product, so you can eliminate physically moving products around (a non value adding process) to keep things organized to find them. SkuVault always knows where your product is, and reduces picking times dramatically. One of the biggest benefits of the integration is that SkuVault can drastically reduce a company's out of stock percentage, which is paramount to selling on Amazon. Out of stocks lead to negative feedback, which not only loses sales, but actually affects where you rank in search results! Typically a company with 5-6% out of stocks can reduce that percentage to 0.5% or less with SkuVault's Amazon inventory management system.
