Audience: Suppliers

 

Brands truly harness the power of the Rithum platform when they choose to integrate with multiple retailers through our system. The Assortment feature can help manage this one-to-many integration model. Assortments allow brands to segregate inventory and only share specific items with specific retailers. For instance, a brand may have a one assortment for major retailers and a specialty assortment for smaller retailers. The Assortment feature allows you to pass only designated items to your retail trading partner.  

The Assortment feature in Rithum works well with the Rithum pricing tiers feature. Creating pricing tiers allows you to set various pricing tiers for each item and share only one of those pricing tiers with your retailer partners. See Using Pricing Tiers for more information on that feature. 

Creating the Assortment

Using the portal

Step 1: Click the Dashboard icon and select Workflows > Inventory

Step 2: The Inventory page is displayed with a list of all your SKUs. Select the + next to Assortments to create a new assortment.  

Step 3: In the Add Assortment pop-up, enter your assortment name and click Submit.  

Step 4: Back on the Inventory page, select the checkboxes to the left of the items that you want to add to the assortment. Once each item has been selected,  click the Actions drop-down, select Add to Assortment(s), and then select the assortment name.

Uploading a spreadsheet

Similar to creating the assortment directly in the portal, assortments can also be created by uploading a spreadsheet. Just download the catalog template from this page (https://app.dsco.io/inventory/upload), add the appropriate assortment name to the assortments column on the spreadsheet, and then re-upload the catalog file here: https://app.dsco.io/inventory/upload. Use the "^^" convention shown below to add the item to multiple assortments. 

Sharing a Assortment with a Trading Partner

Once you've created your assortments, go to the TRADING PARTNERS (https://app.dsco.io/connections/) page and select the Settings icon for a trading partner. This will bring up the PARTNER CONFIGURATION page, where you can assign a specific assortment to the retailer. Use the Visible Inventory Assortments section to select which assortment to share with the trading partner. As the supplier, you will always have access to all of your inventory in your portal. Your retail partners will only have access to items included in the shared assortment.
