ToolsGroup, a global leader in retail and supply chain planning and optimization software, today announced the launch of Dynamic Fulfillment, a new addition to the JustEnough retail planning and execution suite. This capability enhances a retailers OMS with optimized fulfillment plan throughout omnichannel and ship-from-store networks, reducing costs, improving profits, and ensuring more satisfied customers.
The Dynamic Fulfillment solution from ToolsGroup helps us use data to make smarter, faster decisions to create an even better experience for our customers, said Paul Kisicki, VP of IT at Zumiez. The fulfillment optimization logic helps us generate operational efficiencies like reducing split rates and shipping costs while better serving the needs of our customers.
Unlike traditional, rule-based approaches, Dynamic Fulfillment evaluates every fulfillment option and simultaneously optimizes based on costs, margins, resources, and customer SLAs. Dynamic Fulfillment leverages real-time inventory, demand, and operational signals captured by ToolsGroups unique dynamic data unification platform, which provides a digital supply chain twin for optimal sourcing decisions. By integrating Dynamic Fulfillment into their existing order management systems, retailers realize benefits immediately upon adoption.
Core Benefits of Dynamic Fulfillment:

Increase margins by avoiding forecasted markdowns in stores
Maximize profitability while meeting customer SLAs
Integrate seamlessly with any OMS through API-powered composable architecture

"Omnichannel fulfillment introduces new complexity into sourcing decisions. The increased size of the fulfillment network from a handful of centralized fulfillment centers to hundreds of stores makes it difficult to evaluate every possible option at the time an order is placed," said Inna Kuznetsova, CEO of ToolsGroup. "Our Dynamic Fulfillment solution analyzes hundreds of thousands of fulfillment permutations in real-time and optimizes based on multiple variables, considerably reducing shipping costs and delivering significant margin improvements."
