HOT NEWS!!! Long awaited Supplier Reports are now available.
For access contact your buyer or merchandise assistant.
The Exchange recently awarded a contract to 1010data for access to their Enterprise Analytics Platform. The Exchange is providing 1010data with daily data feeds to include audited sales, inventory at store and DC level, and receipts. We have also provided 1010data with 3 years of historical data. Our Merchandising teams will access this data from 1010data’s cloud-based solution through predefined reports and ad hoc queries, but will not be able to provide you with reports or data extracts from this solution.
This engagement does enable our vendor, supplier and broker community access to this data through 1010data’s cloud-based Supplier Portal. This service is available now on a subscription basis through 1010data. This is the only contract we have with a vendor of this nature.
The Exchange is not requiring our vendor, suppliers, and brokers to sign up for this service. It is an optional service that provides you with another avenue to obtain this type of Exchange information. You will still have access to existing reports on EPOL (Exchange Partners On-Line), and we will continue to send EDI transaction sets we currently provide.
For more information regarding subscription costs for the Supplier Portal and what it offers you and your organization, contact Karl Nemitz at email@example.com or (207) 653-7045.

As The Exchange continues to move forward with improving service levels to our customers, we have made a decision to collaborate with VendorNet to manage our drop ship supplier program.
VendorNet is a browser based or system to system based system that automates order transmission, confirmation, and invoicing. This solution will provide the supplier community with visibility to all drop ship orders processed through our internet shopmyexchange.com site. Suppliers will be able to improve delivery time to our customers along with improved invoicing capabilities to the Exchange.
In addition, the VendorNet solution will interface between the Exchange and the suppliers allowing inventory visibility, carrier integration, and automated order tracking improving our overall customer online experience.
Suppliers will be contacted by a VendorNet representative in the near future to provide information regarding system capabilities, pricing and training. The Exchange will be rolling out this solution in phases beginning September 2013.
This decision is preparing The Exchange online store for future growth and expansion, as well as allowing us to align our business processes with the industry’s best practices. Our goal is to keep our suppliers informed as we make changes that position The Exchange for growth. With this important change, it is important that suppliers verify that their business practices and processes are compatible with VendorNet.
Should you have questions or comments concerning this change, please contact the Drop Ship Support Team at DSSupport@aafes.com for more details.
Thank you for your support.
