The First Seamlessly Integrated OmniChannel Order Management & Inventory Management Solution on the

RALEIGH, N.C. - Dec. 8, 2015 - PRLog -- For many years the software landscape for fulfillment companies and warehousing has remained stagnant in terms of meaningful advancement and true innovation.

However, during the last decade or so, there as been an important paradigm shift in the way warehouses operate. Traditional order fulfillment meant sending pallets to distribution centers. Direct catalog orders for consumers had the luxury of preparing packages for days or weeks before having to get sent out of the dock (warehouse door). Sending cases of products to be opened at brick and mortar stores required routing guides for cases to trickle down the retailer’s logistics network. The exchange of information was done through costly EDI document exchanges.

Today however, warehouses have a few hours to fill thousands of orders of the dock. Warehouses have become large spaces with thousands of products were pickers must fill boxes with detailed consumer shopping lists. Like most people do going through their grocery store lists at the store a picker might walk through multiple isles across thousands of square feet of shelves for a hand full of customers.

A traditional Warehouse Management System will only take care of inventory control, offer a few connection points to upload orders and push them to one or two carriers. Many warehouse try to fill in the gaps by integrating Order Management Systems, which are typically single tenant. On the other end, warehouses rely on biased solutions provided by the carriers. For example UPS Worldship offers Priority Overnight as the default shipping method option. The warehousing business is a very risky business under there conditions.

The one thing that continued to be absent from many solutions is a native OmniChannel Order/Management System (OmniChannel OMS). The word native is used to distinguish from the typical integrated solution. OmniChannel requires multiple communication points across multiple levels.

Across the field there have been numerous companies popup and attempt to make headway into the market but time and time again they’ve come up short and remained indistinguishable from their competitors. That is where Shipedge, the solution to the problem, comes into play. Shipedge is the first truly all-in-one integrated OmniChannel order management system (OmniChannel OMS) and OmniChannel warehouse management system (OmniChannel WMS), also known as inventory management system or inventory control, that unites the two sides into one cloud-based solution capable of changing the way fulfillment companies operate while simplifying the entire process. Shipedge is an all-in-one WMS and OMS with a native shipping station solution.

Time and time again the reviews from customers looking for competent warehouse management systems and inventory control software show that the current options available on the market aren’t robust enough to fulfill the needs demanded by the OmniChannel retail landscape.

There have been great order management systems created for eCommerce and multi-channel retailers. However, most of those solutions were created in small databases with an eBay power seller in mind. As e-tailers grow, the retail landscape gets more complex and the consumers expectations demand fast and accurate logistics solutions. An example of excellent software for their time would be Stone Edge or Fishbowl, which were initially built on Access and then monetized by forcing upgrades that imploded on big organizations forcing them to pay exorbitant amounts for indispensible support. Most solutions out there will start exceeding their limits and become sluggish and unresponsive with only a few hundreds of orders per day.

Other solutions were created for uploading orders manually, or by updating inventory through CSV files created in Excel. They expect everything to be just a matter of uploading and downloading files a few hundred times. A good solution requires flow, smooth and painless integrations at all levels with all the technological components involved in each transaction. On the other hand the user at the warehouse must experience a single stream of orders organized in a way that will make their jobs easy to handle. Improving speed and accuracy from A to Z in order to save time and headaches to the operator.

By seamlessly integrating order management and warehouse/inventory management into one accessible solution Shipedge cuts out unnecessary steps that other software solutions have in place & creates efficiency in operations & streamlines the fulfillment lifespan of a package. For ecommerce providers & online retailers this means that they can funnel all their different sales channels into one software program, an OmniChannel OMS (OmniChannel order management system), & have that same program transmit all those orders automatically to their fulfillment provider which will then complete the fulfillment process, ship the product & return shipment confirmation to them and their customer without having to even be at the office. Let Shipedge do the heavy lifting for you & be your OmniChannel order management system (OmniChannel OMS).

By being cloud-based Shipedge also allows you to access and view the system from any location as you wish, allowing you to work from home even, which is a dream come true for most entrepreneurs.
