About us:
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) leverages Amazon's global fulfillment and customer service network for third party sellers who want to grow their business on and off FBA enables customers to take advantage of Free Super Saver Shipping and Amazon Prime on third party items, while allowing sellers to focus on selling rather than shipping. The FBA Inventory Authority Reconciliation (IAR) team solves interesting, real-world challenges. We aim to understand, rectify and ultimately help prevent the various inventory discrepancies occurring in the continuously evolving Amazon supply chain. We build intelligent tools, services and workflows to attempt to understand the root causes and take appropriate actions to drive down the discrepancies. We aim to be the central reconciliation engine for FBA inventory data.
