Is Your Warehouse A Bottleneck In Your System?
Your warehouses are the supply stations for the stock that you put on your shelves. The inventory comes in from your suppliers and is ideally stored and maintained in a way that allows peak efficiency in getting the right product to the right store at the right time. That means you need to have the best warehouse management for your particular retail business, or you will have a huge bottleneck in your supply chain.
ChainDrive Warehouse uses a system designed to cover all the aspects of warehouse management:
- layout of your site
- bin creation and management
- location assignment
- productivity analysis
- inventory tracking
- Open-to-Sell reporting
- multiple pick, pack, and ship methods
- handheld wireless capability
- EDI compatibility
- wave-based distribution
- customization potential
Your business has many similarities to other retail enterprises but the unique selling points you’ve carefully created, locations, staff, and history work together to make your retail business differentiated in some of your needs. Quite often, the way your stock moves through the warehouse is one of them. It isn’t unusual for a system that worked in theory to bottleneck in practice due to things like warehouse configuration, poorly trained staff, or obsolete management tools. ChainDrive can help you figure out where the pain points are and strategize solutions that make the bottleneck a thing of the past. We specialize in “end-to-end” solutions for retailers and can customize a solution for your business.
