Five Benefits of Using a Fulfillment Service
As we all know the business world is a hectic place. Clear communication, accuracy, and teamwork are critical aspects of a successful company. However, sometimes there are tasks that need to be done but no one has time or the funds to accomplish them. This is where a fulfillment service can come in handy. Here at Draco, we want alleviate those stresses that block a company’s vision, but at the same time help them accomplish their goals. So why should your business bring aboard a fulfillment service? Let’s find out.
1. Focus On What You Do Best
Every business has a vision and a goal. They have a step-by-step plan of what they hope to achieve. But does that plan include packaging, labeling, shipping, etc.? We’re guessing not. Draco LLC wants your business to have the most optimal time and resources to accomplish your goals, or in other words “let us do the rest”.
2. Time is Money
It’s an age-old phrase, but yet it still holds true. In a competitive marketplace, every penny and minute counts. Hiring employees just for the side work like packaging and shipping is an added cost to the company, which could easily be outsourced to third parties like us. Doing this will eliminate the overhead costs of hiring, training, and developing a whole other side of your company for one task––which means more money and time for you.
3. Variable vs. Fixed Cost
Let’s imagine that your company is a massive e-commerce company selling shoes. At some point, your needs may outgrow your home or office. This means purchasing or leasing a warehouse ––at a fixed cost. Here at Draco, we focus our rates depending on your sales. It’s simple; sell more, pay more and vice versa. This will put less pressure on your company to sell more shoes, faster and quicker to cover your overhead costs. As we all know sometimes our businesses have “bad months or quarters”. Draco accounts for that and thus adjusts your service rate to your selling rate.
4. Customer Service
This benefit is always crucially important for a competitive edge. Often when providing goods, companies have to develop whole areas of employees focusing strictly on customer service. Draco can help you improve your customer service. We can lower shipping costs by applying bulk rates through shipping companies like UPS and FedEx. We can also lower the time it takes for your product to get to your customer. Our warehouses and employees move fast and efficiently, thus quickening the purchasing and shipping cycle. It’s a win-win situation.
5. Seasonal Friendly
Selling and shipping rates vary from season to season. As we all know, the October to January range is quite hectic for most businesses. Most of the yearly profits are made within a four-month period. This obviously puts more stress on the company, which usually includes hiring temps to cover the excess work. However, a fulfillment service can both lower the stress and prevent a major hire each season. We can handle the overload of products and still ship them on time and more importantly on budget.
All in all, a fulfillment service is a great companion to have as a thriving business. At Draco, we want to be your partner that helps in achieving your goals while keeping stress and costs down. We understand what it’s like, and we aspire to work hard just as much as you do, everyday.
