How Dollar Shave Club Internalized Fulfillment with HighJump WMS

Posted by Ian McCue on Mar 15, 2017 9:49:34 AM

It all started with a viral video.

In March 2012, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin took $2,000 from a college friend to create a hilarious, low-budget ad recorded in a warehouse. That video quickly became an internet sensation and kicked off the business’ explosive growth. There was not nearly enough inventory to fulfill the influx of orders, so the subscription-based razor and men’s care company had to politely inform its new customers it could be up to two months before they received their orders. And most of them were willing to wait.

Voice Technology for the Modern DC

Posted by Tailar Kennedy on Mar 15, 2017 7:22:09 AM

10 years ago if you heard the term “voice technology” it would have been a foreign concept. The idea of using voice in the warehouse had already broken into the market, but it wasn’t something the average person was aware of. Now, voice regularly touches every piece of our life.

‘Digital Transformation’ Will Reshape Retail World, Analyst Says

Posted by Ian McCue on Mar 14, 2017 10:05:44 AM

Omnichannel is no longer a trendy industry buzzword for retailers – it’s now the reality in which they operate. Some retailers have dived headfirst into this environment; others have been slower to adapt. But every large retailer is selling online and through retail stores, with other potential channels like drop shipping and buy online, pickup in store.

The goal – and fundamental challenge – retailers face today is to provide the same experience for customers regardless of where they interact with the brand.

To accomplish that goal, retailers are investing more time and dollars into what IDC Retail Insights senior analyst Victoria Brown called “digital transformation” at a presentation Monday at HighJump Elevate 2017. The goal of that transformation is to blend the physical and digital experiences into one.
