Online Grocery Shopping On the Fast Lane

It is well acknowledged within the industry that of all the products, grocery is more challenging to manage. Not only are there many more items per order as compared with electronics, apparels, toys or books, the demand placed on e-groceries is also higher. The products they have to handle are often bulkier and heavier, the margins are lower compared to other consumer products and some are perishables where losses are incurred due to product damage or product expiry. On time reliable delivery is therefore critical in ensuring customer satisfaction.

Why Visibility Across all Facilities is Key in Warehouse Management

Not knowing can be a nightmare, but all too often, it’s the case in a manual environment. Couple that scenario with multiple manual facilities, and you have double the frustration. Without a system in place, it is difficult to track inventory and even more so to accurately forecast what’s needed to fulfill orders in the pipeline. With a warehouse management software (WMS) solution, inventory accuracy and traceability is a given. However, there are several features that you need in order to ensure a smooth operation.
