Great Information Systems Managers
A great Information Systems Manager, also known as an Information Technology (IT) manager, is really invaluable to your company. I have worked in the software business for close to 30 years and sometimes IS Managers can be the largest obstacle for modernization and progress. Sometimes it may be their personality, their upper management, over-all workload or even politics behind some of the reasons they slow progress. However, I am impressed by how many AMAZING IS Managers are in our working force today. Let me share the qualities they possess.
Shipping and Fulfillment Processes
Is It Time To Re-Evaluate Those?
Is it time to re-evaluate shipping and fulfillment processes? If you have not read our blog on Supply Chain Trends that may not change, please do. On top of the absolute craziness in the world, it’s a surprise manufacturers and distributors are still shipping products out. With Supply-Chain shortages, trouble hiring and retaining good employees coupled with rising operating costs (Fuel, Raw Materials, Warehouse Space, etc.) should you evaluate some of your processes and technology? In my humble opinion, yes, you should.

2020 A Year In Review
So let’s just say the obvious! 2020 reminds me of that game you play in the carnival called Whac-A-Mole. You know the one were moles pop up out of nowhere and if you make contact with them you win a point. Nationally and Globally many of our partners, clients and friends where in the same boat. Personally and professionally I learned many lessons. Believe it or not, some positive events took place too.

Paperless Picking and The Various Methods DCWarehouse Supports
If you are a growing company and your orders are becoming more challenging to keep up, using wireless technology may be inevitable. Paper pick lists and manual in-put during the fulfillment process can leave room for errors. These mistakes can include picking the wrong products, shipping to the wrong location or duplicating efforts. DCWarehouse allows you to pick, pack and ship your products using real-time wireless technology. Many of our distribution and manufacturing clients have moved away from paper processes and implement paperless picking. We support several methods depending on their products and order types. Some of our clients use a variety of picking methods based on their operations or even a combination of picking methods.Read More
5 Simple Business Tips for Busy People
Black Friday Preparation for Distributors
“Black Friday” sounds a little sinister, but its name comes from the famous Friday after Thanksgiving when folks take a day off work solely dedicated to Christmas shopping; a noble cause but the sheer volume of people can cause all sorts of mayhem.
