It goes without saying that things are pretty rough for warehouse managers, order managers, and brands right now—from the CEO and the COO to operations and logistics managers, every day brings more challenges. It can feel like running a marathon with no water breaks, no rest periods, and an ever-diminishing finish line. Even if you manage to break through the tape, there are no fans cheering you on, no medals or TV coverage—just a few minutes to catch your breath before another 26.2 miles of pavement stares you down.
And if you are the one responsible for managing day-to-day operations and the entire fulfillment operations and strategy for your brand, chances are you were exhausted before the race even started. Fatigue can cripple brands—no matter how resilient you are. Even the greatest gymnast of all time, Simone Biles, had to withdraw from the Olympics due to the “yips” or “twisties,” a condition that causes a sudden loss of ability in athletes to execute the most basic skills of their sport. Luckily, her sponsors, Athleta and Visa, stood by her—but will your customers do the same?
If you are burned out by problems caused by inventory inaccuracies, operational efficiencies, labor constraints, and the inability to easily fold integrations into your existing systems, it could be related to your technology. Whether you are a brand in your early lifecycle or a mature brand with set technology infrastructure, the decisions you make on selecting connected and open technology for your warehouse management system (WMS) and the integrations infrastructure will set the tone for your growth journey in the future.
