What is wearables and smart device fulfilment?
Wearables and smart device fulfilment involves the process of safely storing product and picking, packing, and shipping orders to end users once orders are placed.
These types of products include anything from smart wristbands to track personal health like exercise or sleep, or home devices that make it easier to manage lights, security, and appliances.
Since these products are often high tech and valuable, they require extra care during the fulfilment process.
ShipBob’s order fulfilment process
ShipBob has partnered with a wide range of brands to help optimise their order fulfilment process. Once we receive your inventory at one or more of our fulfilment centre locations, it is then stored in our warehouse until items are ready to be fulfiled.
Once orders are placed on your online store, our fulfilment experts pick and pack items and ship orders as fast as possible. We partner with top shipping carriers and negotiate bulk shipping rates to pass the savings on to you and your customers.
“ShipBob’s speed to scale and fast pick, pack, and ship process has been seamless, as our business grew 1,200% in a couple of weeks. Overall, we have had a great experience having a ShipBob as a partner that can scale fast with us.”Andrea Lisbona, Founder & CEO of Touchland
Thanks to ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, you can keep your inventory closer to end customers.
ShipBob’s fulfilment platform gives merchants insight into their data in real time, so you can track inventory activity across fulfilment centre locations. Our analytic tool provides suggestions for how to optimise your inventory distribution based on historical data to reduce transit times and cut down on shipping costs.
“It’s fun to see orders shipping out instantaneously. I love how fast and efficient ShipBob is. Their shipping costs are very reasonable, and their platform makes fulfilment feel so easy.”Harley Abrams, Operations Manager of SuperSpeed Golf, LLC
ShipBob’s proprietary fulfilment platform lets you manage, edit, and customise orders, track real-time stock levels from any location, and receive notifications when you need to reorder inventory — all at no extra cost for unlimited users.
“We’ve been very impressed by ShipBob’s high accuracy as well as their ability to meet their SLAs. Before we migrated to ShipBob, this was a challenge due to limited resources and time, and we used to frequently make shipping mistakes ourselves.”
With ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, you can strategically split your inventory across our locations to get your products from point A to point B more quickly and affordably. Storing inventory near your customers helps reduce the shipping zones and costs associated with shipping orders to faraway destinations.
Distributed inventory also helps you stay competitive by offering fast shipping to your customers. When an order is placed, ShipBob’s algorithm automatically selects the warehouse and carrier that will give you the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has helped our merchants bring 13% savings to their bottom line.
Go Global Easily
ShipBob´s Shipping Program enables fast and cost effective delivery for all UK, European and Global destinations. Working with any of our ecommerce store integrations, you can reach your customers with the best local and international carrier options.
Whether you ship from one or multiple fulfilment centre locations, you can offer fast delivery options to all your customers. Our proprietary algorithm does all the hard work to give you the most cost effective and in-demand delivery options.
At ShipBob, we track your orders from A to Z. Filter orders by status, search for specific orders, see a quick timeline view of where your order is in the fulfilment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or carrier service), and get a quick snapshot of any orders that require action.
With order management software for your direct-to-consumer and wholesale shipments, you can manage subscriptions, make changes to your orders post-purchase, map your store’s shipping options to ShipBob, and automatically share tracking information with your customers.
At ShipBob, we empower merchants to manage their inventory with the right tools and guidance. It’s easy to view the status of inventory and quantity on hand across locations at any point in time, identify slow-moving inventory with high storage costs, and gain insights into the performance of units sold over time by channel.
Our inventory management software helps you set reminders to proactively replenish inventory with reorder notifications, bundle your products for promotions, make inventory transfer requests, and much more.
Reporting and analytics
To provide you with visibility into our operations and performance, and also hold ourselves accountable, ShipBob’s free analytics tool is packed with charts to help you with everything from year-end reporting, to better supply chain decision-making.
Data can be a competitive advantage, and our reports show an analysis of which fulfilment centres you should stock, days of inventory left before you run out, impact of promotions on stock levels, each shipping method’s average cart value, shipping cost, and days in transit, your fulfilment cost per order, storage cost per unit, and much more.
End-to-end customer experience
We care about the customer experience as much as you and strive to be an extension of your team. From custom branded boxes to free plain packaging, ShipBob works with you to provide the unboxing experience you want. We also help you offer the fastest, most cost-effective shipping options to meet your customers’ expectations.
As soon as an order ships, tracking is pushed back to your store. We also offer return management services, allowing customers to generate return shipping labels and track returns, while getting your products processed and back into your available inventory as efficiently as possible.
