Managing your inventory

During Peaks and Holiday Seasons

Peak & Holiday Season - are you prepared?

With Black Friday falling on Friday 26th November and Cyber Monday on 29th November, Retailers predict selling far more items online than they do during the rest of the year. That puts pressure on the whole supply chain, from inventory to delivery, as goods travel faster and further than ever.

What you can do to ensure you are ahead of the game this Peak Season. Plan with the data you have available. From last year’s peak season to the recent Amazon Prime Day. How efficiently are your processes at present? How quickly did your inventory arrive? Your data will reveal what went right and what could be improved.

Next, you should review your inventory. Once you have a view of what stock you have available as well a prediction of how fast your products will sell then you can optimise accordingly. Finally, review holiday dates, from October to the Christmas holidays, what dates are carriers working?

While many tactical Prime / Black Friday / Cyber Monday preparations still apply, there are several considerations to you should bear in mind.

Below is our handy guide as to how to be prepared and cope with this busy time of year:

Embed Flexibility

Make sure your supply chain has flex. The staff and fuel shortages are having a knock-on effect with delivers, so you need to be a able to react fast. Blade, our software that manages the complete click to delivery process, you can easily switch between carriers to make sure you can overcome any courier capacity of driver shortage issues with ease.

Overview of Blade

Especially during a high-traffic events like Amazon Prime Day. In addition, you can manage you inventory stock for various marketplaces in one place as well as track when orders come in, when they are dispatched, and which courier has been used.

With Blade you will have a full view of your stock, marketplaces, orders and shipping rules all in one place. You can download the Blade app on Android and iOS and track your orders on the go.

If at any point you need help our team of in-house specialists can provide support whenever you need it.

Types of returns in Blade IMS

Fast returns

This is one of the many features on Blade (our own proprietary fulfilment software). Fast returns is a white labelled solution, that can be customised to your brand. This feeds into your own website with a dedicated URL. For each return your customers would go to the dedicated URL and self-serve. Once they've completed the relevant information online. They would print off the RMA and send back via Royal Mail. Once received in our warehouse, the item is quality checked to ensure its not be used / is in the condition it says its supposed to be in. If we are in agreement and there are no disputes, we process the details onto Blade and a refund is then initiated.

Returns in Blade IMS

Should your customer want to return a product, they would need to contact you via the relevant channel. Your team would then log in to to Blade, find the customer order and print off the RMA to send to your customer to return the product. Your customer would complete the RMA and send the RMA and product back to you or I-Fulfilment for a refund.

Easy returns

Is one of the many reasons clients choose us! Easy returns is a solution whereby an RMA is sent out with every order. Should your customer wish to return a product, they simply complete the RMA and send back via Royal Mail along with the product.

Once received in our warehouse, the item is quality checked to ensure its not be used / is in the condition it says its supposed to be in. If we are in agreement and there are no disputes, we process the details onto Blade and a refund is then initiated.

Our returns process

Product is received
