warehouse handheld scanners - it's all the same
You've been to large warehouses, you're in awe of how they operate. Seamless, efficient, well trained and accurate. We have been the worker bee, we've been the purchaser, we've been the accounts receivable and payable, the sales guy, the packer, the shipper the counter...We understand logistics. The challenge drives us.

omnichannel there and back again
First there was multichannel, then cross channel and now omnichannel. The distribution business is constantly evolving and great business leaders often find loop holes to increase sales, or increase efficiency in their operations.
Decades ago, we had retail stores, word of mouth, phone sales. This was a definition of selling on separate channels.
Our distribution has evolved as customers and businesses are using different ways to do their transactions. They may come from phone, sales people, online, or even direct online ordering. And each of these channels seem to have their own channel. For example, "online" would have Amazon, eBay, Alibaba just to list 3.
As a business owner, you don't want to limit your option to sell. You need to increase your options to sell and get exposed.
A recent client of ours sells on 8 different channels. Managing stock count on even 1 item across 8 different channels would be a nightmare without proper software, policies and procedures.
Contact us today to learn more on expanding your channel and increasing exposure of your products. (780) 257-8596 and ask to speak to one of our business analysts.
