Order Management Order Management

Nowadays, you might receive orders from more than one source. There’s EDI trading partners, marketplaces like Amazon, shopping carts like Shopify, or other applications like Excel. Depending on the origin of the order, you ship it:
• to a distribution center,
• direct to a retail store, or
• drop ship direct to consumer’s home.

All these different ways of handling orders require knowhow and technology, and that's where we can help.
Avalon Order
Avalon is our order management service that consolidates all your order activity under a single cohesive system. It works seamlessly by integrating with your back office accounting, ERP, WMS or shipping software. If you work with a 3PL service provider, Avalon connects directly to their facility and integrates with their WMS and shipping software.

If your operation is a bit smaller and you receive only a couple of orders per week, you can use our Commerce Desktop web portal to manage your orders. It's a fully EDI compliant tool that works in your browser and connects to all your trading partners.

Too many EDI providers? Consolidate and Save.
Are you using two or more EDI service providers? It costs you money and requires extra training, time and effort to keep up. You might think you have no choice – but you really do.

Even though some retailers may endorse a particular EDI service provider, Avalon connects to those very same retailers every day. See our list of retailer connections.

If you're using a retailer portal like WalMart Retail Link or Amazon Vendor Central, you may not know they give you the option to bypass their portal and use Avalon instead – all you have to do is ask.

By consolidating all your connections you only need one service – Avalon

Avalon is available for a flat monthly fee. See our flat rate service plans or reach out to us and see how much you can save.
