What can ControlPort do for you?
We built our order fulfillment software in house, from scratch, to bridge the gap between high-tech eCommerce platforms and traditional delivery networks. It combines the features you’d usually find in separate systems into one, helping you run your business more efficiently.
1. Order management
Integrate multiple brands and eCommerce platforms with ControlPort, to manage all orders in one place. We then retrieve orders as they come in, for pick, pack and ship in one of our global fulfillment centers.
2. Inventory management
Our product analysis tools identify best and worst-selling lines, and those that are under, over or optimally stocked. Gain new insights to meet customer demand, without overspending on stock or storage.
3. Warehouse management
Track the progress of every order through our warehouses, from picking to dispatch, in real time. Identify issues with incorrect addresses or out-of-stock products, and make amendments to orders.
4. Shipping management
Identify and select the most efficient and cost-effective services, to reach customers worldwide. Track which orders are in transit or delivered, and audit the performance of different carriers.
5. Order tracking
Improve the post-checkout experience with ViewPort – our online portal that’s customizable with your brand. Each customer gets a link to it, to track their order, from picking to delivery.
6. Returns management
Wave goodbye to paper slips in the parcel. Instead, customers can initiate returns easily online via ViewPort. This generates a shipping label for them, and notifies you of the return and the reason for it.
Off-the-shelf integrations with top eCommerce platforms
ControlPort integrates with a wide range of eCommerce platform in just a few, easy clicks – no developer required. And if you don’t use any of our existing integrations – or simply want a custom set up – you can also use our open API / EDI.
