Using outdated software to manage your eCommerce order fulfillment can be a lot like slicing onions with a dinner knife. Yes, it can cut the onions. But, it will be frustrating, it will be messy, and after a while, you may be reduced to tears.
On the other hand, industry-leading management software gives your operations a sharp edge. Think of it as a trained chef with a freshly-honed blade.
At SkuNexus, we know how merchants end up in that difficult place. As business begins, purchases are slow and the team can manually process orders. Communication is largely via email.
When things pick up, issues that once were minor inconveniences become major headaches. Without the right tools for the job, the eCommerce fulfillment process can become a quagmire.
By implementing management systems with powerful automation, eCommerce merchants can be confident their technology will be a help, not a hindrance.
We’ve spoken recently about the general capabilities of our software. Here, we'll give specific examples of how SkuNexus can help control and effectively manage your eCommerce fulfillment.
Setting up an order management system (OMS) involves the establishment of rules. Rules allow you to automate actions within the system based on a range of criteria. They will determine what happens throughout the fulfillment process.
The first decision that needs to be made is where the order should go for fulfillment. Generally, with 2 or more location options, the order should be routed to the one nearest the customer to reduce shipping costs. However, many additional criteria can also be factored in.
For merchants with multiple warehouses and/or brick-and-mortar stores, multiple fulfillment options exist. A system is required to manage the decision-making.
The level of picking specialization made possible by a management system like SkuNexus can transform your efficiency and reduce fulfillment costs. Similar to the attributes for order routing, wave picks may be customized in a range of ways.
**It should be noted that our smart Warehouse Management System (WMS) helps with setup and configuration. It will also organize both single-order picks and wave picks using optimized routes through a warehouse.
These are just some of the criteria which can be used to design wave picks within SkuNexus. The ability to customize based on your unique needs is a foundational component of the platform.
Manual decision-making during packing processes can be rife with waste and inefficiency. The ability of an OMS to automate parcel selection based on established criteria is an excellent way to save both time and money.
The creation of rules for automating shipping decisions is a powerful tool at a merchant’s disposal.
