How to deal with multiple channels? What’s the best way to manage the back-end supply chain? How to connect these all together?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 intelligent order management helps organizations to meet fulfillment order complexities as well as to support contemporary fulfillment methods. It provides flexibility to capture orders from any channel, including e-Comm, marketplaces, and etc. That being said, orders can be fulfilled from your own warehouse, 3PL, stores, and other partners through out-of-box connectors.
The feature leverages real-time inventory visibility service, a microservice built on Dataverse that is highly scalable and extensible, providing a global view of the inventory across systems. It also utilizes DOM (Distributed Order Management) to provide users with a real-time suggestion for each order to be fulfilled properly and in a more cost-effective manner, supercharging supply chain coherence to improve customer experience.
The solution is developed to be code-free, making it not only a more modern platform but also an easy-to-use one, since organizations won’t need that many resources to implement the feature in the operations. Besides, it let users proactively overcome disruptions by re-configuring rider flows through drag-and-drop UI.

Intelligent Order Management enables order intake from different sources and passes them through order orchestration afterward to process ones within the app. Then, orchestration services harmonize events triggered by APIs to a variety of connectors to make better fulfillment judgments. Such judgments are tracked and communicated through the entire order life cycle across all fulfillment partners and legal entities.
