Achieving Fast and Accurate Order Fulfillment with ShipNetwork

Before ShipNetwork, we fulfilled all our orders in-house. This was fine when Sleepypod was smaller, but at a certain stage of growth it became unwieldy. Orders began coming in faster and faster, and it got out of hand. This was complicated by the fact that we had no automated system, and everything had to be done manually, resulting in far too many mistakes. The cost of hiring a professional fulfillment team for our internal operations was prohibitively expensive, so we decided to see if a third party fulfillment provider could meet our needs.

Why did you decide to outsource your order fulfillment?

What attracted you to ShipNetwork as opposed to other fulfillment providers?

We looked at a number of top fulfillment providers before we made our decision, but the deal closer with ShipNetwork was the comprehensive shopping cart integration they have. Other fulfillment companies didn’t have existing integrations and would have required custom APIs to be built, but ShipNetwork had complete integration with our Magento shopping cart ready to go the moment we started. ShipNetwork provided us with a robust technology solution that was head and shoulders above the competition.

What is the added value in bringing ShipNetwork into your business operations?

The ShipNetwork SmartFill system gives us a great deal of control over our fulfillment. The fact that our orders are automatically uploaded and processed is a huge point for us, and the ability to access our order data with the system is unparalleled. ShipNetwork provides the resources and expertise in fulfillment that in-house fulfillment simply can’t match. Their fulfillment network stretches across the United States, and enables us to reach our customers quickly and with guaranteed accuracy. ShipNetwork also gives us the ability to expand our operations without worrying about space or labor. Sleepypod has many international customers, and so having a fulfillment partner who is moving forward rapidly with global expansion is fantastic.
How important is it that you have a customer support representative on-site with your inventory that you can call, as well as a fulfillment center that you can visit?
Having an on-site support team makes a huge difference when we’re managing our operations. We have an amazing support representative in Las Vegas, and we really don’t know what we’d do without her. When we need questions answered or an order changed, we just give her a call or send a quick email and it gets done. It’s almost like having our own personnel in the warehouse. This is even more important when there is a problem or emergency, which do occur from time to time. In those circumstances, the benefit of having someone on the ground and able to quickly resolve the issue is both vital and reassuring. It’s great to be able to visit the warehouses and see how the ShipNetwork team is managing our orders. It wasn’t until we saw the size and professionalism of the team that we were fully confident they would be able to handle any future growth on our part with ease.
