The move towards direct-to-consumer has been hastened by the pandemic and many global companies are experiencing a 35% increase in their e-commerce business. These firms need scalable, easily configured, API friendly and robust software which provides cost-effective D2C fulfilment. Smaller picks, rather than traditional pallet and case orders, can be efficiently and consistently managed by regularly updating the flow of data and order of operations without lengthy, expensive and risky development cycles. Every aspect of the e-commerce fulfilment process can be automated, streamlined and made intuitive for floor staff and management by using highly configurable software.
