IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Allow multiple receipts for a purchase order

Many small and medium retailer do not have partners with full EDI capabilities or retailers may not have capabilities to process vendor EDIs. I am working for such a retailer. They create a purchase order in internal ERP system but they do not get / do not process the ASN when vendor ships out the PO. Most of the cases, PO is large and is shipped in multiple containers which may arrive at stores on different days. In current store engagement store receiving this can be achieved by "Receive Later" function but it does not suit business use cases because OMS can not publish the receipts for container as receipts do not get closed. Publishing on receiveOrder causes magnitude of messages going to external system and is not desirable. 

 

We would want the behavior where a container against a PO can be received and receipt be closed so that that container receipt can be published to external systems.
