Check for inventory availability while adding a line for reship, the CSR should have immediate feedback as to whether it can be fulfilled.

Currently in the call center the reship function blindly adds the reship order line without doing an inventory check. I don't know that it needs to be as involved as a wizard such as adding a line though it does need to be more involved and at least do an availability check.

Also when a reship does happen, often it is more involved than just sending the line again such as changing the ship to address. If the product didn't get shipped correctly to the customer in the first place, there is usually something that needs to be changed.

How will this idea be used?

It will allow for a more successful experience between the customer and CSR when the customer calls because the product wasn't originally delivered. Not having the CSR be presented with whether the product is available and giving the customer the expectation it will be fulfilled but can't be, is a very bad customer experience.
