RAZOR USA NEEDED BETTER WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT FOR ITS HIGH VOLUME OF TRANSACTIONS

Razor USA needed an innovative warehouse solution that is EDI compliant, customizable, easy to learn, and available across a network that could ship from multiple terminals and endpoints: a solution as innovative as Razor USA.

With a massive warehouse, multiple carriers and many retailers, Razor USA’s complex processes needed a management system that could handle their high volume of transactions as well as ensuring that they were meeting their customer requirements and maintaining positive relationships with their trading partners.

Razor USA was looking for a warehouse management solution with EDI integration that could optimize their order fulfillment processes in a large-scale warehouse.

Not only are most EDI solutions expensive but at scale, the number of fees generated by these systems made EDI a significant line item in the budget. Additionally, visibility in other systems was much murkier. Razor USA needed a solution that allowed them to see what was going on in their warehouse in the moment of need.
