A fundamental pillar of a strong fulfillment center is accuracy. Order accuracy is the one tangible, logistical element that ties your company to your consumer. As soon as a customer places an order for your product, whether your fulfillment provider recognizes it or not (and they should), a bond is formed. You’ve spent too much time, money, and effort enticing customers to purchase, just to have the ball dropped when they actually open their wallets. Breaking this trust with your consumer can be absolutely detrimental to your business and your brand. Besides damaging your company’s reputation, it has a significant impact to your margins and bottom line. A study by MHI shows that 39% of retail companies face a key challenge with inaccurate order delivery dates.
