RALEIGH, NC, February 19, 2014 — New advancements in goods-to-person order fulfillment technology bring companies faster, more flexible distribution operations to meet today’s growing multichannel challenges.
“Goods-to-person order fulfillment is certainly not new, but the application for these systems was never overly widespread in the past due to limited advantages and functionality,” explains Thompson Brockmann, Principal at Tompkins International and author of the paper.

Specific evaluation and design considerations for a successful goods-to-person order fulfillment system are also explored in this new resource, along with a review of the latest systems.
“We know today’s customers crave a flawless experience,” Brockmann explains. “They care about ordering and delivery, not channels. As markets and customer expectations change, these new systems have become a must-have for any successful operation.”
