Using Order Fulfillment Software to Optimize Efficiency
Any business operating in a fast-paced environment will want to be able to move their products quickly and efficiently around a variety of locations. When a client places an order for products that may be located in multiple different areas, the business must ensure that they can minimize the cost of shipping and maximize the speed of the shipment. Often, communication between multiple branches can become convoluted and the correct solution may be difficult to find. Order fulfillment software allows for easy order tracking, supply optimization and fluid coordination between chains, retailers and warehouses to most effectively process clients’ requests.
If your business has many different locations where supplies are kept, it is important to know which warehouses, stores or vendors have the highest stock of a certain product. Keeping track of this information will allow the software to discern a painless solution to the minimization of shipping costs. Orders can be filled automatically using user-entered rules that outline the location of the product, its stock, and its destination. This ensures a fast and cheap delivery that guarantees customer satisfaction and loyalty.
The user can customize the software’s rules to best fit their company’s needs. A few of its key features will allow you to
- Fill an order from any combination of locations
- Set up automatic shipment plans based on proximity
- Choose between consolidation of products or individual shipments
- Thorough tracking of all orders including those in-transit
