We recently chatted with Christina, who works for a company that has two physical storefronts in Kentucky in addition to a store on the Amazon marketplace. The company sells everything from pet items to beauty products, so it works with a variety of categories.
“Basically, we sell just about anything you can think of that a family would need,” Christina said. One of the company founders grew up in a household that only used organic products. He wanted to make living an organic lifestyle easy for other people by providing natural items.
All items are shipped to the company warehouse for processing, quality checks and more. Some items are distributed to the company storefronts, while others are packaged and shipped into the Amazon fulfillment centers for FBA distribution.
Everyone at the warehouse uses RestockPro to keep track of all the inventory that arrives and leaves the location each day. Some employees focus on creating kits, others manage shipments and two individuals run reports to make sure everything is running smoothly. The reporting features available in RestockPro are very helpful for the company.
Christina’s co-worker David really likes the stickers and labels feature in RestockPro. He noted that the custom sizing options actually allow the company to use its industrial printer. Not only that, he can customize the fields for stickers and labels in addition to adding notes as needed.
Christina’s role involves creating the company’s Amazon listings in addition to building kits that add value for customers. She uses RestockPro to create these kits. “On local inventory you can get an estimated margin,” she said, noting that she pays close attention to this number while building kits.
Creating kits with RestockPro helps Christina and her co-workers keep their orders organized. They often build kits of 10-12 different items, so the ability to order each item and manage supplier relationships helps streamline their efforts.
The company discovered RestockPro because they use our sister tool, FeedbackFive, to manage seller feedback. They have created a unique feedback solicitation message for each manufacturer that they work with to add personality to their feedback communications.
