Established Ordering Provider Continues To Enhance Technical Capabilities
LEWISVILLE, TX-- The Store of the Future, a 2000-square foot retail space debuting at Natural Products Expo West, March 7-9, 2003, in Anaheim, California is presented in partnership with OrderDog, Inc., a technology services company that provides secure Web-based third party business-to-business solutions to the natural products industry.
"There is a lot more to placing an order than scanning. Retailers need to have immediate and accurate information," states Darrin Peterson, president and co-founder of OrderDog, Inc. "The technology we provide allows a retailer to see current specials, pricing changes, discontinued items and out-of-stock information‹all the way through the supply channel. This clearly distinguishes us from a simple faxing service."
The OrderDog.com online service directly connects retailers with manufacturers and distributors around the clock allowing them to electronically catalog and purchase product, streamlining the entire ordering process. The OrderDog system permits the end user to easily monitor and track order status, avoid inventory out-of-stocks and receive updated email notifications while providing access to a real time customer support center.
On Saturday, March 8, 8:45 a.m. - 9:45 a.m., Peterson will present Technically Challenged? Let Go of the Leash with OrderDog in room 206A at Expo West. Using a retail store as a case study, Peterson will discuss the current ordering issues that face retailers today. Attendees receive a worksheet that will help them identify the time, money and effort they spend on current ordering patterns and how OrderDog can assist them in this process.
Sophisticated technological advancements continue to separate OrderDog from the competition, establishing them as the leader in the natural products industry. Since their inception, OrderDog has developed 15 different formats that integrate retailers POS systems supporting companies such as Cam Commerce Solutions, Dunn & Dunn, ECR Software Corporation, Sprint XPOS, QuickSell2000 and Synchronics. OrderDog has also developed real time software that interfaces with manufacturer and distributor ERP systems allowing for immediate product information including costing, specials, and discontinued and new items. OrderDog has integrated with ERP Systems such as SAP, Oracle, JD Edwards and other Legacy Systems.
Headquartered in Lewisville, Texas, OrderDog, Inc., is built with the most reputable hardware and software from leading industry partners including AOL, Cisco, Dell, Gateway, Microsoft and Xodiax.
