Specialty Sporting Goods Retailer Delivers an Endless Customer Aisle Experience with a New Vendor Direct Program Enabled by Dicentral’s B2Bi Managed Services

HOUSTON – August 7, 2017 Sun and Ski Sports, a national chain of specialty sporting goods stores, has announced its partnership with DiCentral, a leading global provider of B2Bi Managed Services, that will enable hundreds of vendors to participate in its Vendor Direct Program. The partnership will include Dicentral’s drop-shipping solution that will ensure Sun and Ski’s customers receive their vendor-direct order in a timely and accurate manner.

"We have been successfully utilizing Dicentral’s EDI managed services with our replenishment vendors for several years. When it was time to scale our vendor direct program it was only natural to look at DiCentral’s platform,” said Jennifer Skeen, Vice President of Omnichannel and Marketing at Sun & Ski. “We needed a solution that controlled the process from end to end, and Dicentral’s drop ship platform provides our vendors with a single end-to-end solution, whether they are processing orders that ship to our distribution center or direct to our customers.”

Controlling and monitoring the direct shipment process is critical to any retail customer service department. Dicentral’s dropship solution provides Sun & Ski’s operational and executive teams with proactive alerts, inventory visibility, and on-demand reporting that enable complete control and visibility of fulfillment performance and brand management, resulting in high levels of customer service and accurate, on-time shipments.

"Sun & Ski provided us with a unique opportunity to showcase our innovation by leveraging our B2Bi Managed Services platform to support its vendor direct programs,” said Thuy Mai, President and CEO of DiCentral. “This includes a tailored vendor community management service and a rich set of business rule management and visibility solutions.”
