    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.

    The results of an early 2014 Internet Retailer survey of 165 retail executives suggest that while they have lots of data, they can't use it effectively to make decisions that will increase profits—and that they know it. A big part of the problem is that retailers collect data through a myriad of systems, and that they lack the means to quickly establish relationships between data sets and draw meaningful conclusions.
