GSI Commerce Inc., a leading provider of e-commerce and interactive marketing solutions, announced it has acquired VendorNet, a Boynton Beach, Fla.-based multichannel e-commerce supply chain solutions provider to more than 100 retailers and brand marketers. The acquisition expands the breadth of GSI's e-commerce offerings, including the capability to leverage local-store inventory to enable cost-effective same- and next-day delivery direct to consumers, and strengthens GSI's position as a leading provider of multichannel e-commerce solutions.

VendorNet offers retailers a suite of proven on-demand or licensed supply chain management products that enable real-time collaboration between multiple potential fulfillment channels, including drop ship networks, distribution centers, retail stores and other inventory locations. VendorNet's products provide an integrated view of inventory across the supply chain and enable the sourcing of products from the most efficient location. These capabilities allow for retail stores to be leveraged as a source of inventory for e-commerce sales and inventory to be sourced from the closest location to the consumer. This shortens delivery times while reducing shipping costs, minimizes lost online sales due to out-of-stock inventory, and allows retailers to greatly expand their Web store product assortment by leveraging existing inventory outside their business-to-consumer fulfillment center. With these capabilities, multichannel retailers are able to overcome traditional barriers to leveraging local-store inventory while meeting consumer demand for rapid and affordable delivery options.

VendorNet's multichannel collaboration technology, VendorNet Commerce Suite, includes:

• VendorNet StoreNet Live, which enables retailers to access store-level inventory for efficient direct-to-consumer fulfillment of online orders. This increases e-commerce sales that would otherwise be lost due to out-of-stock conditions, while improving customer satisfaction, by allowing more rapid delivery of inventory that is located closer to the consumer. It also allows retailers to expand online product assortment by tapping into inventory beyond what is stored in their B2C fulfillment center. Its cross-channel inventory management capabilities reduce fulfillment and shipping costs, delivering benefits to both retailer and consumer.
• VendorNet Dropship Manager, which streamlines the flow of information between multichannel retailers and their drop ship suppliers by automating this largely manual and time-intensive process. This improves order accuracy and reduces costs and labor needs. With more than 17,000 suppliers connected, Dropship Manager offers retailers a high degree of connectivity and efficient implementation.
• VendorNet Stock PO Manager, which synchronizes the information-exchange process of all purchase orders, related shipments and invoices, reducing many manual tasks, as well as operational and inventory expenses.
