Ware2Go, a UPS company offering on-demand fulfillment through integrated technology for one- to two-day shipping, has introduced FulfillmentVu, a platform with a combined warehouse, order and transportation management system that empowers retailers of all sizes to meet customer expectations across all sales channels.
“The business has evolved, our business has grown and the complexity required for these small to mid-size businesses to compete has put us in a good place to release a new platform, FulfillmentVu, that encompasses what today’s B2E (Business to Everyone) environment requires,” Ware2Go CEO Steve Denton told Sourcing Journal. “We’re excited to get it in the hands of our 45 warehouse partners…and better visibility and engagement with our merchant partners.”
Integration points across any sales channel or e-commerce storefronts allow for further standardization across Ware2Go’s extensive warehouse network and enable merchants to fully customize their fulfillment operations with little to no oversight or operational burden. Denton said in this time of Covid and the explosion of e-commerce, merchants needed a better system of fulfillment and delivery.
“In today’s B2E era of commerce, businesses of all sizes need fulfillment that enables them to scale with demand and respond to growth opportunities, even in a turbulent market,” Denton said. “We’re continuing to accelerate innovation, empowering our customers, as well as our warehouse and shipping partners, with the technology and tools they need to do their jobs more efficiently.”
FulfillmentVu provides a single connection point between fully optimized sales channels and extensive fulfillment capabilities. The flexible and comprehensive fulfillment network is fully responsive and can adapt quickly with shifts in demand or channel requirements, the company noted.
Key technologies and features include “connected channels”–a configurable merchant portal that offers more than 70 connectors that link order fulfillment to virtually any sales channel, e-commerce provider, marketplace or EDI. For warehouse management, comprehensive capabilities include retail compliance, third party billing, lot and expiry tracking, and management of big and bulky items.
A broad range of transportation management options include small parcel, less than load (LTL), full truckload (FTL), international shipping, UPS SurePost and UPS Mail Innovations. Denton said FulfillmentVu’s advanced fulfillment capabilities connect the power and scale of Ware2Go’s existing nationwide 1- to 2-day delivery network and infrastructure. When supported by Ware2Go’s rigorous service-level agreement guaranteeing 99 percent accurate and on-time fulfillment, this technology drives measurable growth outcomes and exceptional customer experiences.
Such capabilities and automation can drive significant outcomes for merchants who can quickly capitalize on growth opportunities. Its flexible pricing and operational model eliminate long-term contracts, as well as order minimums, to facilitate multichannel growth at any level.
“Historically, this type of technology has only been available to large enterprise companies due to cost, complexity, and infrastructure,” Denton said. “FulfillmentVu, along with Ware2Go’s 1- to 2-day delivery network, is leveling the playing field and enabling companies of all sizes to compete and win across all sales channels.”
Ware2Go operates a turnkey nationwide fulfillment network designed to help merchants easily position products closer to end customers for a fast, inexpensive and reliable order-to-delivery experience. Ware2Go offers an integrated solution for storage, pick, pack and shipping services to businesses of all sizes through an intuitive cloud-based technology platform that makes it easy to extend a company’s distribution footprint and scale up and down as your operational needs change.
