Order Processing and Fulfillment- the Challenge
Having extensively done things by pen and paper and spreadsheets for ~5 years, Paperboat had gotten accustomed to different tools for different functions. But the challenges that surfaced in line with product expansion and diversification made the operations team realize that they were working with a siloed view on inwarding activities. Paperboat’s warehouse hub is located in Bengaluru and they deliver Pan-India. The team’s challenges primarily lay in
Processing orders and updating inventory.
Generating and retrieving invoice details to verify billing.
Generating labels, with a 45% mislabeling rate that created shipment errors.
With the absence of marketplace integrations across those profitable sales channels that were making them money.
Return rates running beyond the D2C market average of 5%.
How the EasyEcom Order Management System Tipped the Process Efficiency Scales
The team was at the center of a massive explosion in the average order volume when they realized the sensible and quicker approach was to automate order processing through an AI-driven order management system. Paperboat came onboard EasyEcom to put their omnichannel eCommerce strategy into action. They integrated their native website and marketplaces into EasyEcom to process orders and activate fulfillment processes. The eCommerce operations team has succeeded in
