Softeon Releases New Little Book of Distributed Order Management



RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Softeon, a global supply chain software provider with the industry’s best track record of customer success, has released a new book that summarizes key aspects of Distributed Order Management systems, a comparatively new supply chain software category now almost essential for effective ecommerce fulfillment – and beyond.

A Distributed Order Management System serves as a powerful hub that enables omnichannel commerce; integrates the extended supply chain; optimizes inbound and outbound order routing; provides real-time network inventory visibility, allocation, and management; automates complex channel and customer requirements; and maximizes profitability while meeting customer service commitments.

While the software was first developed for ecommerce fulfillment applications, it is now expanding its reach well beyond retailing into other industries and applications.

Despite the increased adoption of DOM technology, it is still little understood by most supply chain professionals. To address the market’s needs for better education on DOM, Softeon has published The Little Book of Distributed Order Management.

The book provides a concise but detailed look at DOM history, uses cases, value drivers, functionality, case studies, keys to success and more. It is the most thorough discussion of DOM available to date – accomplished in just 70 pages.

Kevin Hume, a vice president at noted consultancy Tompkins International, says that “Distributed Order Management is changing the landscape in supply chain execution. If you want a concise primer on DOM functionality, application use cases, and how DOM delivers value in retail and beyond, this Little Book provides all that and more. A good read.”

John Hill, a consultant at St. Onge, adds that the Little Book is a “Great introduction to DOM that goes well beyond the typical primer or DOM for Dummies! Clearly, it identifies the options available to those just sticking their toes in the DOM and supply chain systems water as well as those looking to take their order management system(s) to the next level.

The prestigious CSCMP Supply Chain Quarterly is publishing a summary of the Little Book by its authors Dan Gilmore and Satish Kumar, both of Softeon, in its second quarter 2019 edition, under the title of “The Most Important Supply Chain Software that You Don’t Know Much About.”

The Little Book of DOM is available as a downloadable e-book or can be mailed as a printed hardcopy. Those who are interested can choose either option at the following link:

Softeon has a growing list of successful DOM implementations, in applications including efulfillment, vendor drop shipping, 3PL client on-boarding and requirements management, order hub creation, optimizing inbound inventory flows, service parts management and more. Softeon also offers traditional Order Management that can be deployed with DOM for a complete and robust total Order Management Solution.
