Dsco allows suppliers to update their inventory with warehouse information and manage quantities per inventory item based on warehouse location. As part of that process, suppliers provide a warehouse code, which is the supplier's own internal identifier for the warehouse. Using the warehouse manager, retailers can map those supplier warehouse codes to different codes, allowing retailers to reference supplier warehouses with separate retail warehouse codes.
Follow the steps below to add warehouse mappings for each supplier warehouse.
Creating Warehouse Mappings
Step 1: Click the Navigation icon, select SETTINGS, and then WAREHOUSE MANAGER.
Step 2: On this page, you'll see the Supplier Name, Supplier Warehouse Address, Supplier Warehouse Code, Dsco Warehouse ID , Retailer Warehouse Code, and Supplier Warehouse Calendar columns. You can:
- Add your retailer code for the warehouses listed on the page by clicking the text box below the Retailer Warehouse Code column for each warehouse listed on the page.
- View your suppliers' warehouse calendar (if available) by clicking the View Calendar button below the Supplier Warehouse Calendar column for each warehouse listed on the page.
- Export all connected supplier warehouse details by clicking the Export button in the top right corner of the page.
Note that Dsco will automatically save the value you enter into the text box as soon as you click outside of that box.
That's it! You have now mapped supplier warehouse codes to your own codes. You can send orders to Dsco referencing those retailer warehouse codes, and Dsco will send you shipping and invoice updates with those same codes.
You can easily change the retailer warehouse code by editing the code in that same text box. Just locate the correct warehouse and edit the Retailer Warehouse Code for the supplier's warehouse.
