An Order Management System (OMS) is the benchmark tool for omnichannel order management


Order Management Systems
Unified stock and order orchestration

An OMS centralises and optimises the management of customer orders – from order taking right through to receipt and collection. To do this, the Order Management System relies on two fundamental technologies:

Unified Stock

OneStock integrates stock data from all your source systems and all your stock points (warehouses, shops, drop-shippers, suppliers, etc).
The OMS then consolidates this stock and displays it on your various sales channels: website, marketplaces, in-store orders, etc.
This gives you greater flexibility in terms of stock and order management, and communication with consumers is also simplified.

Order Orchestration

Combining self-learning algorithms with highly customisable business rules, Order Orchestration allows orders to be directed in real-time to a given stock point. This is achieved by considering a number of different factors, including: geographical proximity, carrier lead times and rates, number of packages and shipping points, stock levels etc.
In this way, you can optimise your logistics flows according to your own criteria: profitability, delivery speed, CO2 impact etc.

Omnichannel solutions integrated with Order Management Systems

It’s a simple fact: your customers want to be able to buy anywhere and have it delivered straight to them. The first mission of an OMS is to provide you with a unified view of all stock points. OneStock enables you to quickly deploy omnichannel solutions to provide a seamless customer journey. Two of our flagship solutions are:

What is an Order Management System?

An Order Management System (OMS) – also known as order management software or a unified commerce platform – is a solution that manages and optimises customer orders. Regardless of the channel through which the order is placed, the OMS acts as a conductor from the time the order is placed to the time it is received by the customer.

How does an Order Management System work?

To enable retailers and manufacturers to perform optimally, an OMS relies on two fundamental technologies: stock unification and order orchestration.

What is stock unification and why is it important?

Stock unification consolidates data from all stock points (warehouses, shops, distributors, suppliers, etc.) in order to create a single view of stock. This unified stock is then made available to all sales channels (shops, mobile, web, marketplaces, social networks, call centres, etc.).
The unification of stock has several direct benefits:
● An exhaustive and reliable view of all available stock across the entire network
● A clear reduction in the unavailability rate
● Increased customer satisfaction

What is order orchestration and why is it important?

Order orchestration determines the stock point that is best able to handle the customer’s order while respecting both the Delivery Promise displayed and the retailer’s business challenges (economic, environmental, logistical).
Order orchestration has several direct benefits:
● An increase in turnover
● Better management of customer orders
● The possibility of maximising the benefits associated with various digital services (Ship from Store, Order in Store, etc.)

What are the main stages of an order covered by an Order Management System?

An effective OMS covers the end-to-end journey of a customer order:
1. Consolidation and real-time updating of unified stock
2. Taking the customer order into account
3. Orchestration of the customer order
4. Payment and confirmation of the customer order
5. Dispatch of the order from the stock point
6. Returns management

What digital solutions can be implemented with an Order Management System?

By first implementing stock unification and order orchestration, retailers can then integrate a multitude of digital (or omnichannel) solutions to:
Save sales by combating product unavailability: Order in Store, Ship from Store, Future Stock
– Improve and enrich online customer journeys: Click & Collect, Delivery Promise, Returns Management, In-store Appointments
– Improve and enrich in-store customer journeys: Mobile POS, Order in Store, In-Store Returns
– Increase the efficiency of logistics operations: Scalable Store Fulfillment

Is an Order Management System only relevant to retail and B2C?

Not at all! Order Management Systems are indeed used by retail and B2C, but many of the solutions it enables are especially relevant for B2B and industry. For example, an OMS allows businesses to optimise stock management and warehouse processes, consolidate available stock on hand, and connect with 3PLs.
OneStock is already helping industry and B2B players manage their logistics issues.

What are the benefits associated with an Order Management System?

Here is what we have seen from our customers:
● Faster stock clearance across the entire network of stock points
● Increased sales and margins
● Improved customer satisfaction
● An average 25% increase in web sales
● ROI achieved in only 4 months
