  • Greater stock visibility as orders automatically come into Cin7 and decrease available inventory.
  • Efficient order processing that removes stock right away, preventing overselling.
  • Fast order dispatch via Cin7’s warehouse and 3PL integrations.
  • Precise order processing. Cin7 creates your Purchase Orders directly from your retailer’s EDI orders.
