Challenges : Process, Operations & Management
The idea behind the vision and mission of the brand was to create a Chumbak way of life through its home & lifestyle range.
Since the brand was growing rapidly, they needed a unified platform that could enable them to cope up with the demand that’s coming across offline and online sales channels to omnify the shopper’s experience while maintaining great customer service. Right from managing the warehouse operations to integrating multiple sales channels, Chumbak was determined to scale up on their order fulfillment rate. With sales across multiple channels, the major goal of the brand was to streamline its operations across multiple sales channels, while ensuring that they could maintain data sanctity in their ERP system (Microsoft AX).
Unaligned inventory visibility across offline and online sales channels
Difficulty in integrating their ERP system
Delayed order processing and fulfillment
Lack of full automation to manage warehouse operations for e-commerce
Inaccurate business reports and analytics
Collaboration with Unicommerce
The omni-enabled solutions synchronized their inventory across offline stores and warehouses, helping them realize their vision of offering a seamless omnichannel experience to end consumers. Additionally, Unicommerce also introduced the brand with the auto hopping feature that enabled the store staff of Chumbak to accept or reject any or all of the items of an order. Once rejected, the item will hop on to another store. This feature further empowered Chumbak to improve the customer experience by increasing fulfillment rate & SLA.
Unicommerce also provided the auto acceptance feature, which is an extension to the order hopping feature. If no store has that product in stock or has not accepted the order due to some reason, the order directly goes to the warehouse where it will be auto accepted so that they don’t miss any order.
Being the ideal middleware solution, Unicommerce sorted the biggest challenge of the brand as it seamlessly integrated their online business with their bespoke ERP system, Microsoft AX through APIs.
Unicommerce offered seamless integration with their leading logistics providers (Ecom Express, Delhivery) to enable quick order fulfillment ensuring on-time delivery of products across the country and abroad.
With Unicommerce’s inventory management system, it became easier for Chumbak to dispatch goods with the packing note (invoice) and courier label automatically printed in real-time at the time of order fulfillment.
Unicommerce offered in-depth analytics through dashboard & reports that enabled Chumbak to check their performance on a routine basis. Moreover, through the sales order report, they were able to monitor the revenue earned and items sold on each of the sales channels.
Unicommerce helped them gain total stock visibility and restored calm in their warehouse with their centralized inventory and order management solution.
