Moving Your Fulfillment Operations Without Downtime

EchoData offers High Performance Fulfillment Operations

Are you satisfied with the performance of your fulfillment operations? There are many reasons companies choose to switch logistics providers or begin outsourcing. Many are tied to performance issues such as inventory management, customer service, and order accuracy. While others are driven by cost savings and need for structured scalability.

Moving your fulfillment operations can be both scary and overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. Choosing the right company to partner with can put your business back on the road to success. EchoData has the experience, systems, and processes to ensure a seamless transition. Here’s how we do it.

Know and Understand Your Business

Start by developing a full scope of your fulfillment operations including storage needs, order metrics, process overview & rules and other support requirements. Understanding even the smallest details helps create a more focused plan for the fulfillment.  We develop a detailed implementation plan to support the standard and custom needs of the program.  Special needs are inherent in every program and are streamlined through custom automated processes.

Manage Inventory During Transition

The strategy for moving your operations depends on your individual situation, with over 30 years in business we have seen all types.  Some programs can run parallel during the transition, supplying the new operation with the same SKU set as the existing.  While others must follow a start/stop situation where one operation ceases, inventory is transferred and the new operation takes over.

The size and scope of a program will determine what type of transition makes the most sense.  Obtaining inventory counts from the current warehouse as well as counting inbound goods will ensure the accuracy of your inventory from day one.

Our automated systems facilitate accountability for movement of all inventoried items throughout the entire warehousing, production and fulfillment cycle. Bar coding will ensure tracked movement of all inventoried items during the fulfillment process.   

Minimize Risk with Expert Onboarding

We have a proven implementation and onboarding process that ensure each critical area is covered; and custom business rules can be built specifically for your fulfillment program. Our implementation planning process will also define the optimal performance metrics and mutual expectations to ensure accountability for both organizations.
