Web-Based RMA System Technical Features

3 Easy Steps for setting up your own web-based RMA System

  1. If you're a manufacturer, distributor, supplier or any type of vendor, just sign up! Pick a unique name for your RMA System. Example: "MyCompany". You will get a free hosted RMA web-address like "http://MyCompany.rmaportal.com"
  2. After signing up, you need to configure your preferences, upload your own logo, upload inventory, upload accounts, etc. You can also change your RMA web-address to a totally custom domain name, like "http://rma.MyCompany.com", or "OhYouGetThePoint.com"
  3. Done! Now that you have your own hosted RMA System, you just need to let your customers know about it. Best way is to put a link somewhere on your company's main website.
