Fulfillment Management

FORT Fulfillment

Distinct from other Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), FORT's platform focuses on comprehensive functionality that goes beyond the warehouse’s basic needs of inventory and order management. Partly for this reason, we call our platform a Fulfillment Management System (FMS), to distinguish it from off the shelf WMS platforms.

FORT's powerful platform makes fulfillment a snap, and provides a comprehensive system for fulfillment companies. The system allows management of multiple warehouse locations, zone skipping, courier label generation, real-time package life cycle management, seamless order uploading and filtering, customer-based preferences, access to 3-tier supply chain channels, client invoicing, robust reporting and analysis tools, and a fully integrated compliance system. No need to use separate systems for these applications.

The FORT FMS goes beyond standard WMS functionality, and is built specifically for those whose core business involves heavy reliance on package shipments.
