The Definition of e-Commerce Supplier Success

If you are handling 50+ orders a day, selling to multiple sales channels such as  Amazon, Target, Home Depot, Walmart, Wayfair, e-Commerce sites, etcetera , creating packing slips, creating shipping labels, creating customized pick lists, scanning orders, sending tracking numbers and invoices to trading partners, updating accounting systems,  tracking packages, and sending inventory feeds to all of your sales channels – all without a single keystroke or EDI charge – then, you’re a success! 

So, if the only manual process you need is picking and packing and you’ve already increased the productivity of your warehouse pickers and packers by 25% – 50% per day, then you’re truly leaving your competitors in the dust! 

This means that:

  •         You Just pick and pack and an autonomous system does the rest for you
  •         Nothing else is needed to run your entire operation
  •         There isn’t a need for a Warehouse Management System, shipping software, EDI companies or retailer portals
  •         And, you can grow your business without increasing your costs or hiring additional employees. 

However, if this doesn’t describe your situation, then you’re probably aware that the retail landscape and consumer expectations are changing rapidly and your retail partners are expecting more and more of you to remain competitive.  This is most evident in the increasing pressure placed on you to drop ship from your warehouse directly to the consumer’s doorstep at a faster and faster pace.  

Unfortunately, this changing landscape impacts your business in the areas of order processing, your consumer’s experience, warehouse operations and even accounting.  To not only survive but THRIVE you need to have speed, efficiency and scalability.  

You can take control of your future and see how you can ensure future success and an unmistakable competitive advantage.  Not only can you outlast and surpass competitors who either ignore or simply don’t know until it’s too late, but you can also realize a quantum leap in profitability with a huge savings in time and labor costs.  Power up and power on with OPAL.

How to Increase Daily Warehouse Shipments AND Revenue $$$

There are some pretty compelling reasons to be a drop ship vendor for one of the big (or small) retailers or e-tailers.  Things like the potential to have better margins, the ability to be nimble and react quickly to market demand, and a revenue steam that isn’t dependent upon just a few retail sales channels.

Unfortunately, there is also a dark side to all of this goodness so if you could do any of the following would it be helpful? 

  • Cut your order processing time by 90%
  • Cut your order processing cost by 80%
  • Increase daily warehouse shipments by 25% – 50% per day
  • Send accurate Item Inventory to all of your retail sales channels when they want it 

Let’s face it, from an order processing perspective you’re now processing small parcels by the hundreds or even thousands each month, the cost to process an order hasn’t changed but is now multiplied by all of those small parcel orders, the increase in orders has caused EDI costs to skyrocket, and you’re finding yourself in more overselling, underselling or chargeback situations with your retailers because it’s so hard to accurately represent your inventory to them in a timely manner.

This is costing you money because as the number of orders increase, so does your order processing cost.  You can’t seem to get ahead of the curve.

From a warehouse management perspective you are now picking, packing and shipping an enormous number of smaller parcels, your customers are expecting their orders to be shipped and delivered in as little as 24 hours and they want to see real-time order confirmation and package tracking information.

This is losing you revenue because your warehouse is a bottleneck and can’t keep up with the demand.
