    Most flash sales models send a daily email to members or promote specials on their web sites. Both scenarios create a specific window of time for order processing. For example, Internet retailer Gilt Groupe notifies its members of daily sales at noon. By design, there is an inherent urgency that is created, both for the customer to purchase products and for the fulfillment and warehouse operators to process orders and get them shipped in a timely manner.

    THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE IS HERE
    How Assisted Selling is Moving the Conversion Needle for E-tailers

    For all the talk of e-commerce cutting into the sales of brick and mortar merchants, many online retailers know the opposite is also true - online conversion rates and average order values are seldom as high as in-store because personal service often seals the deal. If e-retailers could bring face-to-face service to their web sites and apps, they could please more customers and close more sales. The good news is that now they can, with technology from Vee24.

    The Final Steps
    New technology and services help retailers fulfill orders faster and at lower costs

    Online shoppers expect their orders to reach them on time, every time and without any errors, regardless of whether orders are shipped across town, across the country or internationally. A mistake made during any stage of the fulfillment or delivery process can risk a retailer a customer's loyalty, or worse, a lost sale and expensive return.

    Raising the bar on fulfillment requires investing in technology that adds agility, speed and dependability to warehouse operations, while keeping down operating and delivery costs. It's a juggling act that involves keeping several balls in the air at once, such as warehouse management tools and carrier relationships. Drop one ball, even momentarily, and retailers are at risk of failing to accurately pick, pack and ship orders to meet consumers' expectations for speedy delivery.
