SAN FRANCISCO, CA: "In today's dynamic and fast paced business environment, collaborative supplier workflows providing holistic visibility, and the ability to effectively manage backend global supplier processes related to purchase and drop-ship order fulfillment have become key success drivers for retailers," says PlumSlice Labs CEO and founder Abnesh Raina. To address marketers’ leading requirement for an effective supplier collaboration application, PlumSlice Labs has introduced SupplierDistrict, a robust cloud-based platform that allows the buyers and suppliers to easily manage purchase orders, product catalogs, shipments, dropship orders, and invoices.

The Supplier Collaboration Suite enables retail suppliers to upload and maintain their product catalog and price lists. Additionally, it helps them to receive, review and respond accordingly to the standard and dropship purchase orders, along with create, send and track shipments seamlessly.

While for buyers, the Suite provides the ability to track the purchase orders, shipments and invoices online. It has a centralized access point to the audit trail, purchase order and supplier history, comments, which enable the buyers to effortlessly share policies, procedures, instructions and documents with suppliers. Further, the suite sends alerts to the buyers if any issues caused in the system.

SupplierDistrict can work both ways- as a standalone product suite or integrated with an existing system landscape. Retailers can integrate and manage all critical data through a list of System APIs and manual imports and exports. Moreover, the users can also do product modification and build customized applications on top of SupplierDistrict platform.
