BareNecessities.com Dominates Intimate Apparel Market with Fulfillment Powered by PowerHouse/WMS

Faster Dock to Stock, Elimination of Back Orders and Pick Optimization - Improve Customer Satisfaction

New Jersey - USA:  Warehouse and Transportation management experts QSSI have announced that BareNecessities.com has implemented the PowerHouseWMS-TMS optimization suite.

Bare Necessities was straining to keep up with record setting growth because they lacked the necessary systems to manage their inventory and warehouse operations.  Lost inventory, increasing labor costs and mounting back orders were just some of the hurdles they needed to overcome.

To help them find a solution Bare Necessities engaged The Progress Group (leading Supply Chain and Logistics consults) to design their new facility and assist in the selection of a new warehouse optimization suite.  As a result, Bare Necessities selected the PowerHouseWMS-TMS solution and QSSI as their trusted partner.

A big problem for Bare Necessities was increasing backorders caused by lack of inventory control and visibility.  Using PowerHouse, Bare Necessities was able to automate receiving and stock location (via Visual Put) that has eliminated their backorder issues.  The solution provided a streamlined receiving process coupled with cross-docking and directed putaway that moved inventory from dock to stock faster providing, available inventory for sale more quickly and at a lower cost.

Bare Necessities also needed to improve their picking and packing operations and to optimize transportation costs.  Unique requirements like single-line/single-piece orders, customer specific drops-ins, special handling and more led to the configuration of picking methods that substantially improved accuracy and productivity.  To minimize shipping costs PowerHouse/TMS is being used to rate shop parcel carriers and provide certified shipping documents and labels.

The implementation of PowerHouse did more than just help Bare Necessities control their inventory.  Today Bare Necessities ships nearly three times as many orders as they used to with one third as many employees.  Backorders are no longer an issue, accuracy is better than ever and customer satisfaction is at an all time high.
