For business owners who wear multiple hats and manage the majority of their business processes themselves, warehousing inventory and picking and packing products for shipping can be major time wasters. And, fulfillment errors can be costly. For small business with products that vary widely in price, shipping off the wrong product can mean thousands in lost revenue.
For example, imagine a small business that sells new and consignment wines. Often, wines vintaged in different years have similar labels and could be easily mistaken for each other. And, yet their values could differ significantly. For this reason, 100% accuracy in warehousing and fulfillment is an absolute necessity for his business.
CoreCommerce now allows vendors to specify warehouse location in product detail descriptions. This location will be printed on packing labels for easy identification in the warehouse. By keeping the warehouse location information with product information, this reduces the possibility for fulfillment errors, saving time and, potentially, money.
This simple tweak potentially saves thousands of hours of cross-referencing product management systems to locate inventory in the warehouse.
