Using 852 Data May Improve Your Vision

posThere’s nothing new about exchanging point of sale (POS) data among retailers and suppliers – also known as the 852 Product Activity Data Transaction Set as part of ANSI’s X12, the official designation for the development and maintenance of EDI standards. But the 852 – and the practice of providing suppliers with a steady stream of data on sales, on-hand, on-order and order receipts so they can better identify items deserving increased service levels and fill rates as well as those targeted for inventory reduction – is still under-utilized.

For one thing, they rely on photos and text descriptions rather than products on shelves. They also have an advantage in that they don’t necessarily have to stock their merchandise, and can elect to have their suppliers ship directly to the consumer. Finding suppliers that have those capabilities is the key to e-commerce retailers’ ability to grow rapidly.
