Instagram and eCommerce Impact the Material Handling World According to WarehouseOS

Warehouse Mobile Solutions, the makers of WarehouseOS, are finding a substantial impact of Instagram on eCommerce companies. Many eCommerce businesses are finding customer acquisition on Instagram, yet often have little or no experience in the materials handling side of a new, fast-growing eCommerce enterprise. While customer acquisition costs are quite reasonable utilizing Instagram, disappointing those customers with back-orders, delayed shipping, and/or returned merchandise is costly and can cause thin margined operations to go negative very quickly.

Consumers have a choice where to shop online and are fearless about dropping a retailer if their expectations of quality, choice, delivery, free shipping, or ease of returns are not met. Shoppers go elsewhere without hesitation and poorly managed eCommerce order fulfillment means the loss of individual sales, as well as repeat business.

More than one-third of online customers will never buy from an online merchant again, after receiving an incorrect order. Incorrect or damaged shipments tracking above average means that the eCommerce fulfillment process may lack the technology and infrastructure needed to maintain order accuracy. Whether from the dining room table, garage, or the first “real” warehouse, fulfillment should be measured with one objective: 100 percent order accuracy.

Understanding online consumers shopping and purchase patterns across channels, like Instagram, is critical to the success of online fulfillment. Half a billion Instagram users are defining the eCommerce consumer. Knowing the customers and exceeding their expectations is a fundamental baseline of best-in-class eCommerce fulfillment.
