Small companies become mid-size companies while mid-size companies become large companies. It’s the natural order of things if all goes well! There are many decisions to be made along the way. For companies that fulfill customer orders, one of those decisions is when to outsource your fulfillment functions.
If you can no longer move around your home because it’s filled with products waiting to be shipped, it might be time to outsource your fulfillment. If you have a storage unit for no other reason than to store product, it’s likely time to outsource. It is also typically more expensive to ship from a residence versus a business. When every penny counts, you should look for opportunities to save money. Outsourcing will help ease much of this pain.
Scalability is a big part of growth. When a business needs to flex, it’s important to have a company well versed in fulfilling larger orders. The last thing you want to do is miss out on an opportunity because you couldn’t handle the fulfillment. All growing companies face times when hiring professionals just make sense. Whether it’s hiring a CPA, an attorney, or outsourcing your fulfillment, there are aspects of business you just can’t manage on your own.
Professional fulfillment companies are experts at maintaining and reporting accurate inventory levels. It’s crucial to your business success to know exactly how much of each item you that’s ready to be shipped. Mismanagement of inventory will lead to many other issues including accounting errors. Smooth running inventory management is key to building your bottom line.
