“If the customer could be quoted, they might say that Kitepipe quickly engaged, diagnosed the problem, and implemented a successful solution that not only reduced errors in the fulfillment and order booking, but scaled for our peak holiday volumes.”
— Larry Cone, Kitepipe CEO
Ecommerce fulfillment and booking
Project highlights include a rebuilding of the classic Ecommerce sell/ fulfill/ booking triangle featuring NetSuite, Shopify and multiple third-party fulfillment houses.
Like many companies this high growth fitness brand and retailer had challenges managing the sales fulfillment booking cycle of an Ecommerce order. Data quality issues and lack of effective air handling caused significant problems around order fulfillment and revenue recognition. It was Kitepipe to the rescue to reengineer the Ecommerce revenue cycle just in time for holiday peak holiday cycle.
Process and Project Approach:
Our review of the existing processes showed that a central problem was the lack of effective integration air handling as well as functional problems posting to the complex NetSuite fulfillment objects. We rebuilt the order to fulfillment, order to NetSuite and fulfillment to NetSuite transaction triangle to support scaling and effective air handling.
Components of the technical solution included custom objects in NetSuite acting as error notification and tracking repositories. We improved mastering integrations to Shopify and third-party fulfillment vendors, and added well-structured fulfillment posting to NetSuite making use of the complex NetSuite data fulfillment and API.
Outcome and Results:
Immediate relief was experienced by the customer operations team, as five thousand mis-posted orders were reduced to a trickle. Follow on benefits included quicker monthly close, and greatly reduced scaling issues during the subsequent Black Friday and Cyber Monday order peaks. Hundreds of hours of operations team air handling were eliminated due to accurate and complete air handling now posting to a custom NetSuite logging object.
