Provide for consideration of in-store take-sales (non-order) / cash-and-carry when calculating node sell-thru - without impacting transaction quota
Today, Sterling provides for calculation of store node sell-through velocity based on the order fulfillment that OMS has visibility to by virtue of orchestrating orders.
However, in practice, a given store node derives a large portion of its sell-thru from in-person, in-store "take" sales (non-order based transactions). We need a means of logging (importing) a given node's non-order based sell-thru for use in velocity and order sourcing and scheduling rules. Ideally, the mode of import for non-order based sell-through would be flexible to allow for either real-time unit-level deltas as provided in real-time by POS APIs, or periodic bulk loads representative of a given time frame from our POS Sales Audit system(s).
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
A given store may see high foot traffic and in-store sales, but not necessarily be a heavy fulfillment location. In general, we want to fill order units from stores with slow-moving inventory, so as to not cannibalize in-person "take" sales. Today, a given store's velocity does not reflect the speed with which its inventory is sold-through inclusive of walk-in POS sales.
