Overstock adds CommerceHub platform
Online discount retailer Overstock.com will now use CommerceHub's Supply-on-Demand integration and fulfillment platform.
The CommerceHub platform will allow Overstock.com to bring on new suppliers, enabling it to expand product selection, the company said. CommerceHub will provide a direct connection to Overstock.com's existing electronic data interchange-based order management systems for processing purchase orders, order acknowledgements, inventory and fulfillment data with drop-ship suppliers.
“Overstock.com requires reliable platforms to process and fulfill orders, particularly during peak volume periods.” said Jacob Hawkins, SVP of supply chain for Overstock.com, in a statement. ”CommerceHub is one of a best-of-breed in terms of integration flexibility, process scalability and platform reliability.”
According to CommerceHub, more than 4,200 drop-ship suppliers, manufacturers and carriers are connected to the Supply-on-Demand Platform.
