Did your crowd funded project take off? This is the dream of every new business start-up. With the community behind you and the new influx of orders, your next step may be to crowd fund your fulfillment to ensure orders deliver on time and your inventory is managed to prevent backorders and other delays. Expanding your infrastructure to accommodate growth can be expensive. Here, we help you explore ways in which a fulfillment company can help fuel growth by providing the technology, storage and distribution support for your multi-channel sales.
Many new small businesses don’t have a plan or the personnel to cope with expansion
If you think your startup business should wait until you need more warehouse space for your expanding inventory and more staff to run your order processing and inventory management operations, you are in good company. Most start-ups don’t have an expansion plan built into their original business plans. With the wait-and-see principle in place, a lot of business momentum can be depleted when all available personnel get caught up in product packaging, shipping details and inventory management. These necessary but time-consuming activities waste valuable talent and time, which negatively impacts product development and other business initiatives.
