Blue Yonder has launched several microservices under its Luminate Commerce portfolio, with the goal of helping retailers meet the last mile demands of their customers. The individually deployable, augmentative microservices are designed to improve the shopper experience by helping retailers ensure order and fulfillment accuracy.
Luminate Commerce can help retailers offer flexible fulfillment options and save costs through capabilities including:
- Commits: This tool can help retailers provide shoppers with accurate promised delivery dates and flexible fulfillment options early in the buying process;
- Inventory Availability: This solution can present shoppers with enterprise-wide real-time inventory availability, including what’s available at their local store versus available for shipping;
- Order Fulfillment: This solution streamlines store microfulfillment activities such as picking, packing and fulfilling orders with increased accuracy, by giving associates and managers complete visibility with actionable dashboards; and
- Order Services and Customer Order Visibility: This scalable API-based microservice orchestrates and manages the entire order-to-cash lifecycle with a centralized view of orders, whether they are placed from a retailer’s website, a physical store, an online marketplace or a call center.
