Following on from its debut webinar, which detailed significant supply chain savings for Marks & Spencer, EV Cargo Technology hosted a second webinar entitled ‘Vendor e-Documentation: Speed to sale improvements for retailers’ – highlighting the speed to sale benefits of its new e-documentation functionality and partner collaboration portal.
Responding to demand from global retail clients, EV Cargo Technology’s e-documentation functionality is set to enhance efficiency and visibility for EV Cargo Technology’s clients, transforming how they work with their vendors.
The key features and benefits, along with a new partner collaboration portal, were demonstrated and outlined during the free-to-access online webinar.
Supporting the generation of packing lists, carton labels and advance shipping notices, the system simplifies at-origin formalities to decrease activity at destination.
Customers benefit from reduced touchpoints and handling at destination warehouses, improving distribution centre turnaround times by up to five days. Earlier visibility of inbound stock and enhanced accuracy also results in improved planning and quicker access to retail stock.
The partner collaboration module has also been developed in response to customer demand and allows retailers to easily share business documents, news and videos across their vendor community. Creating an efficient solution to distribute, track and monitor information the platform improves engagement and significantly reduces admin time.
Duncan Grewcock, EV Cargo Technology chief commercial officer, said: “Our e-documentation features functionality that will provide significant supply chain benefits for our global retail clients. Simplifying and speeding up activities at both origin and destination, it enhances stock visibility, planning and ultimately improves speed to sale.
