Increase in revenue since implementation

Overview

Fortress Building Products is a manufacturer of outdoor building materials such as fence deck railing, and composite decking. Fortress was fulfilling orders via a paper-based system: the order slip would be printed and then walked sequentially through the warehouse. In addition, Fortress wasn’t able to notify the customer of what stage the order was in until it had finally shipped and the system provided limited tracking information. The warehouse did not utilize barcoding, which put inventory counts and orders at a higher risk of inaccuracy. 

The inefficiencies to get an order into the system, picked and out to the customer was keeping the company from growing. It became evident that replacing paper with a fully integrated warehouse management and fulfillment system would improve operations, order tracking, accuracy, inventory count time and accounting. 

Fortress Building Products has been experiencing tremendous growth. Over the past five years since implementing Deposco we have seen a 150% increase in top line revenue growth. As we continue to grow and look to expand, the Deposco team is there to continue to work with us on these initiatives.

Solution

Fortress Building Products decided to implement Depsoco due to its automation and functionality as well as the feeling of partnership the team had. Implementing Deposco was a smooth process, with the team traveling onsite to see how operation processes could be improved as well as regular phone calls. 

Deposco enabled Fortress to replace paper with automated order picking and packing. Incorporating barcodes and scanning methods into their processes has dramatically increased their efficiency, while eliminating human error to optimize order accuracy rates. 

The Deposco system integrates with the company’s ERP, sales channels and manufacturing system, providing one accurate, real-time view for all inventory. Fortress Building Products has seen dramatic growth since implementing Deposco, including a 150% increase in top-line revenue. Future growth looks bright as the company is currently expanding their warehouse and releasing new product lines. 

Success stories

The Daily Grace
"Deposco has helped us immensely by putting our picking and shipping under one umbrella. The impact of SkuVault and ShipStation not talking to Shopify, and having to take all of the products out of bins to check them, was too much. At the end of the day, our accuracy was failing due to too many hands in the cookie jar."

Nimbl Fulfillment
"I’ve worked in a warehouse where I had to pull information from multiple locations and combine that all into a spreadsheet and then put together financial statements based off of that. If I had to go back to that, it would be catastrophic. Knowing that I come in every day and everything’s right where I need it in Deposco, that’s my heaven."
