The rise of omni-channel fulfillment presents many opportunities for retailers, but brings with it some unique challenges. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that 68 percent of retailers are facing skyrocketing fulfillment costs.
The most successful omni-channel merchants are investing in new technology, like a cloud WMS, to stay ahead of the curve. Coping with the drastic swings in demand across multiple fulfillment channels requires a well-connected WMS acting as the hub of warehouse activity.
By gaining real-time visibility and eliminating bottlenecks, omni-channel warehouses are seeing significant cost savings in the short run and more satisfied customers day in and day out.
