Order Fulfillment Management in Action

Fulfillment of a Client’s Needs

This client came to Propeller, Inc. with a strong product and a number of obstacles, as many clients do. They wanted to know if we could successfully deliver both their goods and their displays to an international retail location, eliminate their current damaged product issues and create an inviting display allowing for bilingual brand recognition, while allowing store associates a quick, easy display setup without the need for instructions or tools. This is where our order fulfillment management system helped fulfill our client’s needs.

 

Order Fulfillment Management in Action

We came up with a solid yet stylish solution to put our order fulfillment management system in action. With the custom designed packaging, Propeller’s solution sent the product safely overseas to the retail floor. We then had store associates simply remove a few components, while leaving the product on the shipping pallet, and the whole assembly became the actual display.

With 44 sq.ft. of advertising space, we were able to provide the brand with an eye-catching way to reach their customers, as well as deliver an easy, clean, hassle free set-up solution for the store associates involved. This was a multi-issue project that resulted in a win for everyone, thanks to our Provo fulfillment system.

The client has had resounding success with this project and couldn’t be happier. Let Propeller, Inc. help with your next project. We provide warehousing, fulfillment, kitting & assembly services to meet your needs. We can help you during the early stages of product development, assemble & kit your product to be shipped by us for the fulfillment of your orders.

Featured Project: MOBILE 3D FACE SCANNER

Overview

Propeller Inc. prides itself on being a successful  fulfillment company in Provo, and we have a great example of a fulfillment project we worked on. We were commissioned to build a Mobile cabinet for 3D Face scanning equipment. The project started at our Provo fulfillment location with an initial whiteboard sketch that underwent refinements until a wire-frame was built in CAD software. With the refinements completed in the Computer Model, we created a cardboard mock up to review the display with the customer. After all adjustments had been made to the project, the computer model was then blueprinted in our Provo fulfillment warehouse and sent to the fabricator.

At the fabricator, a metal prototype was then fabricated and assembled. The computer hardware was installed in the first prototype. After all tests were complete, we then made all necessary updates to the Computer model, and sent the final blueprint to the fabricator. After the fabricator received the blueprint, they fabricated the final assembly components. After we received the raw components at our Provo fulfillment location, we proceeded with the assembly of the ordered displays.

The 3D face scanning equipment was provided by the customer. Their hardware uses an RGB camera and depth sensor running proprietary software, which provide 3D capture and facial recognition. A high-end DSLR is then used to capture a high resolution image of the user’s face. The customer’s software then merges the data together to provide a 3D model to be used in custom action figure manufacturing.
