Key Benefits  

  • Generate sales orders from within the Matrix interface or within SAP Business ByDesign 
  • Matrix/Grid order entry with size, color & style that saves time entering and updating orders without looking up SKU's or entering them separately.

  • Full inventory planning visibility for all sizes, colors and styles. 

The Navigator user-friendly interface delivers an easy step by step process for entering product attributes. Through Matrix you can setup and assign a rich set of product identifiers 

Attributes (ie. Size, type, color) are anything that define the product, like a collar style, boot size or product color. You can input as many attributes and descriptions as you desire for your product. 

Attribute set (ie. Shirts, socks, purses) is a collection of attributes that defines a specific group of attributes used to define an item. 

When building out your product description, you have the option of including additional product information to provide a much richer representation of your products in the system.  

These additional informational sections include: 

  • Brands (ie. Nike, Ralph Lauren, Adidas)
  • HTS Codes (Industry Tariff Codes) 
  • Materials (ie. Cotton, Nylon, Plastic, Metal) 
  • Collections (ie. Men’s, Women’s, Children’s) 
  • Origins (ie USA, China, Japan) 
  • Seasons (ie. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter)
