The benefits of outsourcing your logistics
Stage 1. Receive
What is Receiving?
Receiving is the process of us at KeepSpace cataloguing your inventory, uploading images into your space, barcoding, size checking and counting the amounts.
Each item is barcoded to be easily trackable once placed into our warehouse
With our image capture and count its easier for recognition of your products to each order request
Measure in m3
Each item is given a volume metric which make its easier to keep track of storage space used
Multiple pack sizes drops costs
If you are able to give your inventory goods in large set sizes this speeds receive processing, which in turn drops the cost of receiving. For example if you have cases of beer, 24 Bottles in a case as 1 Item is quicker then 1 bottle as 1 item.
Stage 2. Storage
How Storage Works?
KeepSpace storage organised by the measuring of each store keeping unit (SKU) by its height, length and width to get its cubic meter volume or m3. This SKU m3 is then multiplied by the amount of the quantity that will be stored into your account and shown on your ‘Space page’ inside your free account.
How it is physically stored is by three methods. The individual SKU will be sealed inside on of our boxes, your cardboard box on our shelving, your pallet on our racking. No matter how it is physically stored, your only paying by the size of the packed SKUs
Boxed Storage is the placement of your goods inside our boxes that keep them contained and secure while waiting for distribution. Great for small items and packages
Shelved Storage is great for large boxes or barrels, cartons or crates of goods. This allows quick retrieval of these items to be distributed from their shelves to the customer.
Pallet storage is by far the largest and the slowest process of distribution, We only keep them in storage like this if its of excess weight or size otherwise we will break it down for quick retrievals.
Stage 3. View
Your KeepSpace account shows you a view of what you have in your warehouse space so that you do not need to travel or count or check as its all done for you. Here at KeepSpace we help you focus on your business sales as we get it checked and out to your customers.
Each Item is counted and is shown its numbers in stock at all times, helping you know what levels are at.
To have your warehouse like your online website store, to see your items like your customers do.
Knowing vital information such as volume counts, trends, order bulks and seasonal interests.
Stage 4. Orders
KeepSpace order processing will get your stock that is in our warehouse out to your customers who have placed orders with you.
You can send us email orders that you receive from your customers and we will manually update your stock while fulfilling your request.
From KeepSpace you can place in a quick order placement from our platform to send out distribution effectively on customers requests.
An API link from Woo Commerce or Shopify can send us orders directly from your online store automating the distribution process quickly.
What does API mean?
API (Application Program Interface) specifies how software components should interact. How these are helpful is like with ‘Google Maps’ API’s let developers embed Google Maps onto their webpages. How we will use API’s is by taking the data of an online order that has been completed from popular systems like ‘Woo Commerce’ or ‘Shopify’ to be pre-filled into our order booking forms that will not require manual filling. This will speed up the admin time needed to get orders out quickly to your customers from our warehouse.
Stage 5. Pick and Pack
Picking and Packing
KeepSpace’s pick and packing arrangements are a secure and safe way to ensure what is ordered is selected with out ID location software and our barcode verification scanning for the SKUs within your account.
Each barcode item is quickly checked to confirm that no item is taken from the shelf that is not in the order
