Amazon has raised the bar for fast and accurate order fulfillment. Customers expect immediate availability of inventory regardless of where it sits in the network. FORTNA will help design your omnichannel operations for responsiveness.

Maximizing inventory efficiency

Leverage a single pool of inventory for the optimal fulfillment location and method. FORTNA solutions are designed to locate inventory and fulfill orders from the most advantageous node in the network, resulting in reduced inventory and working capital.

Leverage technology to address labor changes

Labor challenges, such as absenteeism, high turnover and competition for workers make it harder for distribution operations to meet growing performance expectations. The Fortna Technology Assessment can help increase efficiency and drive growth and profitability.

Leveraging omnichannel operations for increased business resilience

Omnichannel fulfillment is a distribution strategy that fulfills customer orders no matter the channel the customer uses to order. Instead of inventory being earmarked for a specific channel, the channel and inventory are streamlined and optimized to fulfill and deliver to all incoming orders.

FORTNA helps companies transform distribution for increased resilience and agility by:

  • Driving increased flexibility and agility in their networks
  • Digitizing operations for increased visibility to real-time data and insights
  • Developing new capabilities and leveraging technologies to increase competitive advantage
