Distribution Management Optimization    

rDMS represents a new perspective on retail supply chain management. No ordinary WMS, rDMS was architected specifically for the retail flow distribution model.

rDMS fully supports the activities of central distribution centers, 3rd party logistics providers, and store receiving operations in both direct direct-store-delivery and central distribution models, as well as, supports pre- and post-distributed purchasing models. The design emphasis on retail-centric supply chains yields superior support for vendor performance verification, floor-ready service support, and same-platform integrated store receiving functionality.

In short, rDMS provides a retail-centric, single source view of the retail logistics organization.
