[title_blue]FORT’s core modules[/title_blue]

[title_blue]Built based on the needs of Real Shippers[/title_blue]


[item]Fulfillment. 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 more.[/item]

[item]Ordering. Upload and process large batch orders or enter them from the admin (a useful feature for phone orders). On the front end, your website customers can easily enter multiple recipient orders, saving them valuable time compared to other systems.[/item]

[item]Routing. The FORT platform can route orders based on a number of different criteria, all based on your own business priorities. Proximity to recipient, product cost, product expiration windows, freight efficiencies/costs, delivery windows, etc., can all be utilized to route orders to the most appropriate and efficient fulfillment location.[/item]

[item]Tracking. Tracking is a general term used to represent the package life cycle, from label generation through to final delivery or return. Such functionality provides a real-time window into all packages, enabling both administrators and customers to see where any given package is at any given moment. This extends even to our 3-tier and zone-skipped packages, providing unparalleled visibility in the industry.[/item]

[toggle title=”The FORT platform was originally built for the wine industry.”]We chose the most complex and heavily regulated industry in which to build our platform. Shippers of beverage alcohol products must be able to manage a range of distinctions, calculations and reports (e.g., tax paid vs in-bond product, label registration requirements which vary by state, direct shipping permits and volume restriction filters, excise and local sales tax calculations, etc.). As a result, FORT can seamlessly handle management of products in various regulated environments, with any number of rules and compliance filters.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”FORT is a fully integrated system.”]Unlike other systems that rely largely on a patchwork of integrations and API calls with other systems, FORT has everything you need under one roof. From taking the order, charging the customer, preparing the package, generating the courier label, monitoring the package life cycle, and communicating with your customer, you can manage your business with a single system.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Deep industry expertise and experience”]We have been working on better solutions for the wine industry since 1999. We pioneered the direct-to-consumer 3-tier clearing business, and are leading the way with our business-to-business solutions as well.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”FORT is a proven, cost efficient solution.”]At FORT Systems, we have a passion for lean and efficient processes, and we believe that a typical supply chain operation offers several opportunities for process improvements. Within the wine industry in particular, our solutions help create increased volume and profits, while also maximizing product selection for sellers.[/toggle]
