Keeping track of inventory, high and low runners, and returns —not to mention meeting customers’ high expectations — certainly takes its toll.

Juggling Logistics

For those working in fast-paced industries such as fashion retail and e-commerce, actions speak louder than words. Keeping track of logistics and fulfillment — not to mention meeting customers’ high expectations — certainly takes its toll.

The fashion world is huge, the opportunities are many, and the trends are constantly changing. In order to stay relevant, you need to put your time and efforts into being creative and staying ahead of the crowd. It takes its toll, and the less energy spent on other tasks such as logistics, the better.

“Running and growing a company takes an incredible amount of energy. In the growth phase of a company, having many different tasks, as well as distractions, is the name of the game. In the process of juggling all day-to-day assignments, at the same time as you are trying to evolve and get one-up on the competition, you run the risk of losing focus on the things which will enable you to succeed in the long run. Thus, investing in automation is key, so that the focus in the organization can shift from handling short term obstacles and distraction to working on long-term strategy and goals. The fact that we are in this position now, feeds us with energy each every day. ” Christer Friis Der/Ute
