Mecalux will launch a technology solution to boost the business of companies with multiple logistics facilities and distribution points: the DOM (Distributed Order Management) system.
Mecalux’s DOM system will help organisations with several facilities, shops and sales channels to meet the challenges of omnichannel and multi-warehouse logistics.
The DOM system by Mecalux will be equipped with the latest advances in data analytics and artificial intelligence to monitor in real time the catalogue of products located in the company’s facilities (warehouses, logistics centres and shops, among others). The advanced software will provide comprehensive management of the logistics operations of all the sales channels, i.e., physical shops, e-commerce platforms, marketplaces and online shopping applications.
To connect the facilities and sales channels, the DOM system will be integrated with the software of the stakeholders involved in a company’s supply chain: carriers, distribution centres, physical shops, enterprise resource management (ERP) systems, call centres and logistics providers.
Mecalux’s DOM system will give users an overall view of available inventory in real time and centralise the entire order management process across the business’s multiple facilities. The software will allow users to program scalable notifications and alerts to quickly identify and solve any problems or anomalies. It will also calculate the ideal shop or warehouse to dispatch the orders, taking into account variables such as product availability, customer location, shipping costs, handling and transport time and the need to perform value-added services.
The DOM system will also organise replenishment effectively. The software will use a system of configurable rules to establish the needs of the different channels. This will allow managers to decide on the best time to supply the logistics centres. Technology shapes the logistics of tomorrow. Mecalux’s new DOM system will ensure flexible and productive logistics operations to help companies take on market challenges.
