Your eFactory homepage dashboard provides you with a quick glance of all your key fulfillment metrics. The dashboard provides actionable data for your day-to-day business as well as short cuts to dive deeper into various aspects of eFactory. By default, the homepage dashboard has 6 sections but each section can be easily customized.
Choose from 12 customizable widgets that reside at the top of your homepage dashboard. These include:
Orders received today
Shows current orders, back orders, shipped units, and more for the day for each account.
This section is separated by account number in the instance that a customer has multiple accounts. For example, DCL customers have separate B2B and B2C accounts
If you click on each numbered result, it will take you to a more detailed view of that dataset.
Shows order receipts and shipped orders by day over the last 30 days
This section will show products you want to track closely or Key Items with a reorder point and items with a shortage. This view will help you monitor stock levels of your most important products and prompt you to order more at predefined levels.
Items can become Key items by adding a key item code to the part number.
Key items are items identified by our customers as the most important part number that they want to see.
DCL can add a reorder point to item numbers.
When on hits that reorder point then it will show in this section.
Items with a Shortage
If demand is greater than available quantity, then the part will show.
Customers can sort by Key, Reorder or Short parts.
ON HAND – This is physical units on hand.
ON HOLD – Out of the physical on hand, this is stock on hold.
COMM – This shows item commitments to WO’s or Sales Orders within the DCL inventory system. This is different than the shipping system.
PROC – When an order ships, the part number required moves from FF commitment to PROC commitment. PROC stands for in-process. After order ships, there is no longer an FF order commitment and there is a slight delay of no more than 5 minutes before the stock is deducted from ON HAND. The PROC commitment accounts for the stock before it is deducted from the system.
FF – These are units committed to Fulfillment orders. Fulfillment orders are our customer's shipping orders.
NET – This is the net available. It subtracts ON HOLD, COMM, PROC, FF from the ON HAND to arrive at the customer net available stock.
