The company used several systems to process orders. “The staff toggled between four different screens to convert an order for shipping, which took, on average, four minutes per order,” said Dave Cox, Chief National Sales and Fulfillment Officer. “The work was paper-driven, time-consuming, and required too many touches by the staff.”
