Omnichannel Distribution & Fulfillment

Propel Your Omnichannel Distribution Strategy with a Multifaceted Approach

Omnichannel order fulfillment thrives on the right mix of planning, software and equipment. Providing consistent, reliable services to customers in store, online and through partners may not always benefit from the simplest solution. At times delivery speed of a partial order may be prioritized above a completed order that may be pending a product from another distribution location. Having visibility to your operations will give you the leverage you need to make those decisions fast and stay competitive in this fast-paced industry.

Bastian Solutions consultants consider your whole operation when reviewing data and identifying goods to person technology opportunities that support higher throughput, scalability and improved service. Understanding order cycle times and delivery routes will help make distribution and fulfillment prioritization more accessible. We look to provide our customers with a strong foundation that allows them to pivot when needed. With appropriate planning, your updated automated process can save time and reduce costs - while ensuring your customers' needs and expectations are met.
