Benefits of Put Wall Systems

Posted by enVista Thought Leadership on Aug 22, 2017 8:34:11 AM

The ever-increasing number of online orders and heightened customer expectations has led to the order fulfillment process becoming more and more complicated. When it costs nearly six times more to gain a new customer than to retain a current one, retailers cannot afford a misstep in the shipping process. Customers are placing more and more orders for more and more items. Retailers must be prepared to fulfill each of these orders, even when parts of the order are uncommon. Along the same lines, this SKU proliferation has led to the diversification of order and product profiles. Organizations must be prepared to ship small items and large items, in large or small quantities. These factors and more have led to retailers integrating put walls into their fulfillment execution strategy in order to reduce errors and increase efficiency.

Posted by enVista Thought Leadership on Jul 25, 2017 9:44:46 AM

For much of their history, businesses have used customer relationship management systems (CRM) as nothing more than a digital contact repository with no real touchpoints. Companies that knew they needed to keep up with the speed of innovation knew that they had to digitize their contact database, but it was done with no real end in mind. But with recent innovations, when a business is properly utilizing CRM, it is allowed to reach its full potential. With a plethora of additional features and services added over the last several years, CRMs bring a return of investment (ROI) of $8.71 for every dollar spent. This makes CRM a must have for any business in today’s customer-focused marketplace.

Diagnose Your Supply Chain Challenges with An Operational Assessment

Posted by enVista Thought Leadership on Jun 21, 2017 11:11:55 AM

Business leaders are constantly facing operational challenges and striving for improvements within their supply chain. In a recent Supply Chain Digest survey, reducing supply chain costs was identified as the top priority for 57 percent of executives. One of the ways this can be accomplished is by eliminating operational inefficiencies from the supply chain. However, this becomes a difficult undertaking because the underlying causes of operational inefficiencies are often difficult to identify and require significant time, effort, and resources. Whether the issue is known or not, an operational assessment is an effective tool to ensure supply chain improvement initiatives are addressing the root issue – rather than its symptoms.
