Real-Time Inventory Visibility Is Essential For Your Success
Working with an e-commerce fulfillment center that provides real-time inventory access is essential for your store’s success. It allows you to stay informed of your products and make business decisions, and it allows our packers at the warehouse to fulfill orders correctly and know immediately when a product sells out.
Improved Inventory Accuracy
Our warehouse managers can use real-time inventory visibility to quickly and accurately track inventory levels. This reduces the risk of overselling or running out of stock.
Better Order Fulfillment
Accurate and up-to-date inventory allows warehouse staff to quickly locate and pick items for orders. This reduces the order processing time and improves order accuracy.
Enhanced Customer Satisfaction
Real-time inventory visibility helps ensure that customers receive their orders on time and in full, which leads to customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Increased Overall Efficiency
By reducing the time spent searching for items and managing inventory levels, real-time inventory helps improve warehouse efficiency and productivity. This means faster order fulfillment and products delivered to customers.
Real-time inventory data helps warehouse staff and store owners make informed decisions about inventory management, including restocking and inventory allocation. This can improve your profitability and reduce product waste.
Timely and Efficient Order Processing from Global Docks
Real-time inventory visibility helps Global Docks process your orders accurately and quickly. But what else do we do to ensure a swift packaging process for your items? After you send your goods to our Global Docks warehouse, they are entered into our proprietary warehouse management system (WMS).
Our WMS is linked with an application programming interface (API) to your online store. This way, when someone checks out, their cart is sent to us to ship. Integrating with your shopping cart allows us to process your orders as efficiently as possible.
During this process, you have consistent live access to track your inventory in real-time.
We also use our high-volume shipping accounts to your advantage to get you the best FedEx, USPS, and UPS postage rates.
