Brookstone Expands Product Mix And Adds More Than 500 New Dropship Partners With VendorNet® Dropship Manager

Please replace the release dated January 24, 2012 with the following corrected version due to revisions to the Brookstone boilerplate.

The corrected release reads:

BROOKSTONE EXPANDS PRODUCT MIX AND ADDS MORE THAN 500 NEW DROPSHIP PARTNERS WITH VENDORNET® DROPSHIP MANAGER

VendorNet Inc., a provider of cross-channel fulfillment and supply chain technology, today announced Brookstone’s implementation of VendorNet Dropship Manager, expanding the company’s dropship network by more than 500 vendor partners and adding tens of thousands of items available for fast delivery. VendorNet’s dropship technology is a core component of Brookstone’s vision to grow its vendor network and selection of products online and in stores, as well as automate its order communication process and real-time visibility into vendor fulfillment.

Live with VendorNet for nearly one year, Brookstone’s dropship order volume peaked in December, with an 800 percent increase over average order volume in off-season months. According to Bill Wood, vice president and chief information officer at Brookstone, VendorNet Dropship Manager easily scaled to handle the influx of seasonal orders.

VendorNet Dropship Manager replaced Brookstone’s home-grown system, streamlining vendor integration, compliance, and real-time order status. Wood commented, “with our old system, vendor integration was challenging and it lacked the tools necessary to monitor status and performance. We were convinced VendorNet had the right solution for two key reasons – first, it looked very simple to implement as a cloud or SaaS solution and second, they had a large number of retail clients and dropship vendors that were already using it. The crossover with the vendors we intended to partner with, led us to believe that the integration with these dropship partners would be greatly simplified.”

Today, VendorNet Dropship Manager provides Brookstone with backend dropship order management technology that automates order communication, processing, invoicing, and shipping. VendorNet’s reporting tools enable Brookstone to monitor orders in real-time, and track vendor compliance to ensure vendors are meeting delivery commitments. In addition, vendor onboarding is simple and fast and supports any level of sophistication, from smaller web-based vendors to EDI-based vendors.
