Creating SmartslipsTM

WHERE REAL-TIME MAGIC HAPPENS

Our rules-based document composition engine enables the creation of a highly tailored individual SmartSlipTM personalised to each individual customer.
The document composition engine combines data with the Adobe InDesign template using your pre-defined business rules and logic. Here are some simple examples:

  • Relevant order & returns information based on
    • Destination
    • Order Value
    • Customer Status
    • Language
  • Colour images of each product purchased and recommended next purchases
  • Promotional messaging for specific customer cohorts
  • Off-price promotion for the value-led customer.

You can keep it simple, or develop a complex variable matrix of options.

INTELLIGENT, ON DEMAND PRINT MADE SIMPLE

Integration to the WMS is a simple web services call or flat file FTP to print a SmartSlipTM, usually triggered by a barcode scan during the pick pack process. If you’ve integrated with any ship-aggregator, you can integrate with Retain.me.

We emulate your existing working practises at the DC to intelligently control the release and routing of the documents onto the correct printer at the correct time.

SmartSlipsTM are printed on full colour digital print devices, using client specified, pre-creased and perforated paper stocks, all supplied by Retain.me.

Our service also enables the DC to re-print SmartSlipsTM via any browser to any device. Where order variances necessitate a revised SmartSlipTM, either a call to our API or the original data source will generate a new document.
