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: Log into your Dsco account, and click the small, grey gear icon in the bottom lefthand corner of your Portal homepage. Select ACCOUNT SETTINGS from the sub-menu.
Step 2: Click the WAREHOUSE MANAGER link from the next sub-menu.
Step 3: On this page, you'll see the Supplier Name, Supplier Warehouse Address, Supplier Warehouse Code, and Dsco Warehouse ID columns. On the far right side of the page is the Retailer Warehouse Code column and a blank text box for each supplier warehouse. Add your retailer code for each warehouse listed on 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.
