E-Commerce, Autobagger Recontrol
A leading e-commerce apparel retailer, and longstanding customer, asked Pyramid to assist in resolving serious problems associated with two automated order fulfillment bagging lines (called “autobaggers”). These autobaggers play a critical role in processing the vast majority of the fulfillment center’s single- and multi-line orders by automatically generating an invoice and returns authorization paperwork; combining the invoice with merchandise and marketing collateral; packaging all the aforementioned items; and printing/applying a GS1-compliant shipping label for delivery. Initially implemented in 2007 (by a different system integrator), the autobaggers never achieved the facility’s performance goals.
