All about Holisol – a premier supply chain and logistics company:
Delhi-based Holisol is one of the country’s premier supply chain and logistics providers, helping e-commerce firms channelize and streamline their back-end operations to deliver products to the consumer timely and efficiently.
Founded in 2009, Holisol Logistics currently processes 70,000 orders, and manages 600,000 square feet of fulfillment centers across 14 locations. Its client list boasts of leading eCommerce firms – Jabong, UrbanLadder, and Cerana, along with brands such as Rangriti, Biba, and NDTV Smart Cookie.
The journey so far:
Recently, the organization closed a round of funding worth $10 million, led by the firm CLSA Capital Partners.
The six-year-old company will use the proceeds to set up more fulfillment centers, expand its last-mile delivery network and expand its portfolio of supply chain optimization solutions.
We worked with Holisol to help them deliver logistics solutions to their clients more efficiently and effectively.
The Company faced several challenges while scaling up.
Holisol needed a solution to optimize their operations. The solution they were looking for needed to give them the ability to manage, assign and track orders, allowing for the real-time visibility of inventory across locations for all their different clients. We helped Holisol –
• Get a consolidated view of warehouses:
This ended the need for disparate client systems and enabled consolidated view of warehouse across clients. It also aided in report preparation for clients after extracting data.
• Automate its processes:
For certain clients the operations were being managed using excel sheets. This resulted in lower efficiencies and delayed shipments, a serious issue when handling perishable goods.
• Improve productivity:
We helped Holisol improve its productivity,by implementing a single instance of our solution for each warehouse location. This saved time for the staff since they no longer needed to have separate logins for multiple locations.
• Make Order Management and fulfillment easy:
Our solution made order management easier by routing orders to locations based on inventory availability, removing the need of manual order routing processes.
• Improve their inventory management processes:
o Holisol managed several clients, which was why client-wise segregation of inventory was a critical need.
o We helped them track inventory across locations, reducing turnaround times.
Fueling growth – The Impact:
We helped fuel Holisol’s growth by –
• We implemented an end to end solution, Vin eRetail WMS.
• Vin eRetail WMS helped them during EOSS (End of Season Sale), by seamlessly handling 10x the normal volumes of orders with 0 errors.
• We helped manage batches of their inventory with client-wise segregation, thereby enabling them to track inventory within the warehouse and increase efficiency.
• They had issues of mismanagement while assigning inventory to orders. Our solution helped them manage orders across multiple warehouses – removing redundancies in their systems.
• Our solutions helped provide real-time visibility to Holisol’s clients about the status of their inventory and order through access to the Vinculum Client portal.
What lies ahead?
With the fresh infusion of funds, Holisol continues to chart new heights in India’s growing logistics industry. The six-year-old company will use the proceeds to set up more fulfillment centers, expand its last-mile delivery network and expand its portfolio of supply chain optimization solutions.
We continue to work with Holisol – aiding them in their efforts to delight their customers.
