Sled Through the Holiday Season at Warp Speed
As online shopping accounts for more and more of total consumer holiday spending with each passing year, the need for merchants to successfully manage product inventory, order, and fulfillment operations intensifies right alongside. For many retailers, it’s make-or-break time, and for most of the rest a strong holiday sales performance means the difference between a great year overall, or one that’s mediocre at best.
A retailer may have systems in place which function adequately to support the rate of customer demand during most of the year. But these same systems can easily fall behind in one or more critical areas when holiday shopping fever begins taking hold – just when it’s time for stores to capitalize on lucrative but fleeting sales opportunities.
Miss an order because your shopping cart bogs down and a frustrated customer simply clicks away. Overlook an item available in inventory, due to lack of real-time visibility, and lose a sale. Fail to deliver a gift order before the holiday as promised, and evoke the customer’s wrath. As the old seafarer’s saying goes, “The chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” Every type of missed opportunity or avoidable error that leads to dissatisfied customers during the off-season only becomes magnified and exacerbated during the fast-paced, high-stakes environment of holiday shopping.
The opportunity to win new customers that comes with the holidays can just as easily result in “never-to-repeat” customers. That is, unless inventory, order, and fulfillment capabilities which are sufficient for slower sales periods also have the built-in horsepower to ramp up when called upon.
