SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, April 25, 2017 – Sparkle In Pink is enjoying the benefits of having a new consolidated distribution center located in Draper, Utah. After partnering with HOJ Engineering and Sales to design and install all the material handling equipment for their new distribution center including the integration of WarehouseOS®, “WOS®”, an innovative tablet warehouse operations system developed by Warehouse Mobile Solutions. Sparkle In Pink now has their entire operation located in one highly efficient facility. The order fulfillment process is integrated with Shopify® to seamlessly download orders and update their webstore inventory in real-time.
As an internet startup company, it is difficult to manage growth while ensuring your customers orders are fulfilled in a timely manner with exact accuracy. It only takes a few unhappy customers posting negative comments about your company on the internet and all those long days and sleepless nights no longer matter. However, as your company grows at rates of 100% plus per year, year after year, there comes a time when you need a team of logistics experts to help you plan a way to get your life back and help you take your company to a new level. For Diane and Quynn Larsen (Mother and Daughter), owners of Sparkle In Pink, they knew it was time when every garage and building on their property was filled with inventory, while trying to fulfill and ship orders from separate buildings. The easy way out was for them to select a 3Pl to do fulfillment, but for Diane it was more important to keep that personal touch with her customers and know they were being taken care of. As Diane says: “The sky is the limit for us! We want to inspire woman that you really can have it all! The family life, and be a successful business owner, while loving what you do”.
Working together with HOJ’s team of logistics engineers they are now located in a new facility capable of supporting their business for years to come, as well as achieving the benefits of knowing where every SKU is located and exactly how many are available to sell in real time. The new facility comprising just under 20,000 square feet is all managed utilizing the WOSTM APP’s for the flow of products from the time they are received through putaway, picking, replenishment and packing. This process involves 16 operators on the floor utilizing iPads all tracked and managed by WOSTM to ensure full accountability.
One of the critical reasons Sparkle In Pink selected WOSTM to manage their new Distribution Center was the ability to not only have it connect with Shopify® but the capability to deploy it as a cloud solution, thus not requiring them to manage and support the software, having the comfort of continuous operation without local hardware failures and getting automatic updates. Being a paperless operation requires operators to simply scan items and locations as directed by the iPads® mounted to their mobile picking carts. The tablets are controlled wirelessly by a system manager connected through Wi-Fi to the Tablet DirectorTM software. Tablet DirectorTM releases orders, schedules operators’ activities, and tracks in-process orders throughout the entire order fulfillment process. At packing, a simple scan of the order barcode from the iPad® screen triggers the packing slip and shipping label to be printed. No more sorting and organize shipping labels with packing slips!
