5/6/2014
NetSuite Inc. and SPS Commerce, Inc. are working together to keep pace with the needs of the omnichannel consumer with a consistent experience across any touchpoint, any channel, anytime, anywhere.

Today hundreds of retailers and suppliers rely on the joint SPS Commerce/NetSuite solution to enhance collaboration, efficiency and data accuracy for more intelligent commerce.

"Automated supply chains and analytics are the foundation of retail excellence, as companies without automation find themselves limited in growth potential while suffering high costs and delays with manual processing," Nelson said. "Our partnership with SPS Commerce is delivering proven solutions that are a prerequisite to compete in omnichannel retail and ultimately better serve the consumer – wherever and whenever they shop."

Beyond the Rack, an online shopping club offering 10 million members flash sales of designer apparel, accessories, beauty and home decor products at up to 80 percent off, expects to eliminate hundreds of hours a week in manual labor as it expands use of the joint SPS Commerce/NetSuite solution.

SPS has given the Montreal-based Beyond the Rack a standardized environment to collaborate with fashion designers by easily sharing trading information including vendor UPC code data, rather than using Excel to translate UPC data, internal Beyond the Rack bar codes, and SKU numbers. The SPS Commerce/NetSuite solution is being rolled out among 200 top vendors with more to follow. It alleviates manual work for both Beyond the Rack and vendors, and improves data accuracy fueling its ecommerce initiatives.

The solution also automates the workflow of posting product information to the company ecommerce site, utilizing NetSuite inventory records. With SPS Commerce, Beyond the Rack is building on the success it has realized since going live on NetSuite, including double-digit annual revenue growth and scalability to accommodate huge order spikes.

"You're talking about hundreds of hours a week we won't have to invest — we'll be able to pick, pack and ship much faster, and merchandise can come in and go out the same day," said Jim Weinberg, president and chief merchandising officer. "We went with SPS Commerce because they offer a large retail network and could buckle their solution onto NetSuite, and that made a lot of sense to us."
