Overall, Despatch Cloud significantly improved customer service, communication, and operational efficiency for Yorkshire Trading Company as it continues to grow.
Challenge
Before embracing Despatch Cloud, Yorkshire Trading faced significant operational challenges. Their manual system struggled to cope with the high order volumes, leading to a backlog of invoices and organisational chaos with multiple issues. The aftermath of Black Friday overwhelmed the system, exposing its inability to handle the surge in volume effectively. Unorganised inventory, fluctuating metrics, and the absence of prioritisation for orders created perpetual challenges in efficient management. Time-consuming sorting and picking processes hindered operational efficiency. The integration of eBay, Amazon, Shopify, and the YTC online platform resulted in continuous errors, misdeliveries, and over-selling predicaments.
