The Appointment Scheduling team utilizes OTM for scheduling an average of 250 appointments/POs (Purchase Order) per business day. This includes Inbound Prepaid and Collect, Direct Import Domestic transfers and Direct Import International.
The shipments/POs being scheduled include the inventory Office Depot sells in its stores or keeps on hand for ecommerce orders as well as for internal supplies.
The Legacy Business Process for scheduling prior to OTM was driven by email communications or reports. Appointments based on slot preferences as agreed by the facility (DC or XD) and it is generally based on product and commodity types.
