Are Retailer Compliance Penalties On the Rise?

Although I try to keep blatant advertising about Enterra Solutions to a minimum, I do try and expose readers to what my company is currently engaged in. This is, after all, a corporate blog. Tomorrow, Enterra Solutions is hosting a web seminar that focuses on how our latest offering, the Enterra Supply Chain Assurance Platform (ESCAPE™), can help save manufacturers and distributors millions of dollars. Below you can find information on the event. Hope to see you there!

Suppliers and distributors face increasing penalties for failing to meet ever stricter retailer “must-arrive-by” delivery windows. With each retailer free to establish its own requirements, suppliers and distributors face increasing complexity as they try to optimize their order fulfillment process. The answer does not lie in traditional processes and technologies. Fortunately, a new approach is available.

This webinar will explain how Conair and Enterra Solutions partnered together to create a process that keeps track of retailer requirements and automatically checks new orders to identify potential fulfillment challenges. It’s a fascinating story that could help your company save millions of dollars in future penalties. During the webinar, John Mayorek, Senior Vice President of Operations of Conair, and I, as CEO/President of Enterra Solutions, will explain how technology has helped Conair fight back and save millions of dollars. We will be joined by Lora Cecere, a Partner in the Altimeter Group. Lora will share results from recent research on the state of the industry on retail compliance. This event is a must for any company whose bottom line continues to be eroded by retailer penalties.

Participants in this webinar will:

  • Have a better understanding of the challenges
  • Learn how challenges can be addressed (pro-actively, when orders are taken, and after penalties have been assessed)
  • Realize that retailer penalties don’t have to be a continuing “cost of doing business”
