Holiday 2017 Consumer Expectation for Next Day Delivery Drives Technology in E-Commerce looms

Better, faster, delivery of e-commerce orders is the consumers’ expectation, according to Tim Hoj, CEO of Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS. Today’s shoppers do not want to pay more for the rapid accurate delivery. This will show up as the picking, packing, and shipping operations of e-commerce vendors are technologically preparing for the 2017 holiday season. People will want to place orders in the third week of December and still expect on-time next-day delivery.

U.S. e-commerce sales growth continues to outpace stores. By December 2017, according to the U.S. Commerce Department these sales are project to be about 15% of all sales. All e-commerce sales are not equal in importance, and even fewer warrant the attention and energy in preparing for the seasonality of shopping. Retail wholesale holiday surges come at a different time than the direct consumer holiday surge. Distribution center handling wholesale orders are busiest from September through November, getting products to retail stores in advance of the shopping seasons. The warehouse managing e-commerce direct to consumer orders, meet order demand with rapid delivery during the month of December.

About WarehouseOS

The RF gun, constant verifications, small keypads, and hard to read screens are quickly becoming yesterday’s technology. Tablets are replacing the RF gun. WarehouseOS, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.

An easy to navigate user interface means warehouse personnel need almost no training before performing warehouse tasks. Receiving, put-away, picking, and packaging quickly become the easiest jobs on the floor. A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
