Introduction:
The Global Service Logistics (GSL) RIM Web Tools are a suite of Logistics Tools that will allow the CE to:  View all available parts within 100 mi / 160 km by location available  View all possible interchangeable, conditional and upgradeable substitutes  View other CE’s Good Spares (Buddy Stock)  Shows distance next to each warehouse location from Customers postal code  Allows CE to select the specific Warehouse for Pick-Up  Order Parts for Regular, Pick-Up or Next Day Type Orders (must call Service Coordinator for all Same Day part Orders)  Check Order Status of Parts that are currently ordered  (US ONLY) Process Parts Returns (Reverse Logistics)  Allows CE to Select and Store al list of Favorite Alternate Ship To Locations  Returns immediate Part Order (Remedy ID#) tracking number.  Utilization of Drop Down Selection Boxes for easy data input.  Utilization of pre-populated (Default) field to support RIM Business Rules.  Central Home Page for ALL Logistics RIM Functions. As you can see, this tool allows the CE to perform logistic functions via. The RIM device vs. phone calls into either a Service or Logistics Coordinators. This also allows the CE to have visibility of available parts and any substitutes.. This tool also has built in Business Rules that ensure that the best practices are followed. An example of these would be if a part is within 25 miles, but the CE requested Next Day, the Tool will request the CE to change from Next Day to Pick-Up and go retrieve the part and close the call. These Business Rules will also be duplicated in the Control Tower Service Coordinator’s systems so that everyone is synchronized.
