Fulfillment_for_the_FlutureFULFILLMENT FOR THE FUTURE

Headlines have already been popping up about how UPSUSPS and FedEx are hiring more delivery staff to keep up with the upcoming holiday demand. We assume that the uptick in hiring is in part due to issues that came up last year, including late and lost packages.

But whether it's during the holiday season or any other time during the year, customers are expecting more from the online businesses that they buy from when it comes to delivery options.  

To get an idea of what fulfillment strategies you and your competitors are planning to implement to improve the customer experience and streamline operations, please take our survey. Once we get the results back, we'll be sure to share them with you.

Omni-Channel retailing

A message from our CEO, Steve Moen

Retail's word of the year

Every year, the Oxford English Dictionary adds a multitude of new words to its collection, raising the count to more than 600,000 to date. This year, ‘selfie’ was dubbed as the word of the year, beating out a whole slew of contenders. If it were up to the retail industry, however, 'omni-channel' should have been the word to define 2013. Although consumers might not be privy to the term, merchants can't seem to escape it.
