AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shipping and inventory management app Ordoro has partnered with Inventory Planner to offer multichannel merchants a powerful, demand driven product purchasing tool.
Inventory Planner plugs into customers' data sources and delivers automated replenishment suggestions to merchants based on product demand in their sales channels. The app forecasts a recommended number of units to replenish specific SKUs, identifies stagnant, promotion-worthy products, and reports on KPIs like profit, turnover, gross margin, and more.
"We've been working closely with the best inventory buyers to develop a simple, but powerful tool for inventory optimization," says Oleg Smirnov, cofounder of Inventory Planner.
App developers, like Inventory Planner, have been using Ordoro's open API to create ecommerce integrations that solve specific business needs. Whether it's a SaaS business wishing to make an ecommerce app, or a retailer's developer building out a custom integration with a 3PL provider, the API helps expand the functionality of Ordoro.
The API acts as a doorway for developers to build a wide range of services that utilize Ordoro's multichannel information. Each integration - whether it's to a sales channel, a manufacturer, or a unique app - offers e-retailers another tool to grow or optimize their business. And Ordoro works in the background keeping each of their channels organized and in sync with each other.
"Managing a multichannel business is far from simple," says Jagath Narayan, CEO of Ordoro. "Every retailer has a variety of needs, and our API helps us solve them and broaden our app's capabilities. Inventory Planner is one of the first businesses to make use of our open API, and we're looking forward to working with them and other complimentary apps in the future."
