We don’t know about you, but 2014 is starting to feel like a distant memory. With all the new plans this year, there’s very little time to reflect back on all the big things we accomplished within the last 12 months. But despite the pull forward, we wanted to share with you some of the new product features that came to life last year.
Here are some of Stitch’s top 2014 features that you should check out today:
Amazon FBA Multichannel Fulfillment (BETA)
Ready to simplify your fulfilment process this year? Stitch’s multichannel fulfillment feature allows Amazon to update the stock levels in Stitch for items being fulfilled through their warehouse. This lets you track orders and stock levels for both Amazon and merchant fulfilled items from one place.
Package products together to increase sales! A Bundle (aka Kit or Multipack) is a special type of variant which is made up from multiple component variants. This could be a 3 pack of a particular item, a multi-pack of several different variants, an item that is made up from multiple components or really any sort of combination you'd like.

Transfer orders are an easy, trackable way to transfer stock between one warehouse and another. They’re also really easy to execute! Transfer orders have a simple three step process: create the transfer order, transport the stock, and then receive the units into the new warehouse. This allows you to account for shipping time between warehouses, or receive units immediately if you use virtual warehouses (for example, with tracking consignment stock).

Supplier Variant Connection
When you have suppliers from whom you consistently purchase inventory, you can create associations in Stitch between the contact entry for that supplier and the variants that they supply.
Associating inventory variants with the contacts that supply them allows you to set default supplier IDs, supplier costs and reorder quantities to those associations. These values will automatically populate when you add a line item to a PO for that supplier. You’ll also be able to search the variants table by supplier and the contact table by variant.

This feature uses the supplier/variant relationships you have established to automatically populate line items on your purchase orders with either all variants or low stock variants from the supplier for which the PO is being created. At this time, the auto-fill functionality supports up to 100 line items. It’s a great way to keep your inventory moving without the extra research time or paperwork stress. Woohoo!
