The FORT System’s original focus was the wine industry, and wine remains our core focus. The system was built from the ground up to address and solve the various problems facing key areas of the industry, such as shipping, compliance, and seamless data transfer. Each module and detail were forged by the actual issues wineries face every day.
A common roadblock plaguing wineries is the use of multiple systems when one should handle the entire order cycle: club, ecommerce, compliance, and fulfillment. In addition, companies find that keeping track of multiple inventories can be very challenging (deep storage, club, tasting room, daily orders).
Distinct from other Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), FORT’s platform focuses on comprehensive functionality that goes beyond the warehouse’s basic needs of inventory and order management. Partly for this reason, we call our platform a Fulfillment Management System (FMS), to distinguish it from off the shelf WMS platforms.
FORT’s powerful platform makes fulfillment a snap, and provides a comprehensive system for fulfillment companies. The system allows management of multiple warehouse locations, zone skipping, courier label generation, real-time package life cycle management, seamless order uploading and filtering, customer-based preferences, access to 3-tier supply chain channels, client invoicing, robust reporting and analysis tools, and a fully integrated compliance system. No need to use separate systems for these applications.
