However sometimes you may need to do something to unblock an order to ensure it meets the deadline.
Our Customer Service view gives you a clear list of what needs to be done for any order.
You can even set up automations to avoid having to get involved & reduce your workload.

Knowing what is happening is so important when trying to improve.
Our reporting gives you the truth, in an easy-to-understand format.
Orders for custom products usually take longer to fulfil than simple pick & pack operations.
However, customers are still keen for updates on the progress of their order. This usually means lots more emails to your inbox, or live-chat requests.
Not any more!
Customers can see the exact status of their order at anytime on the Glide customer area.
...or even 3 times!
Too often the quality control step in manufacturing get's missed. Not anymore.

Clear, simple checklists
Advanced rules & logic uses data that simply doesn't exist in standard shipping platforms.
The products you sell are custom, which means they can differ in size & weight.
You need a shipping system that understands this and gives you the most cost effective shipping service but still gets to the customer in time.

Here are some smaller features that are key concepts when fulfilling orders for custom products
Unapproved artwork means orders don't get fulfilled on time. You also avoid a back-log of unfulfilled orders which is a liability to your business.
Knowing which version of the customer's design was approved is vital to avoid mistakes during manufaturing. It also makes reordering in 1, 2 or even 5+ years a sinch.
No more scouring file systems looking for the correct artwork.
No more wasting hours each week or having to ask customers which file needs to be printed (embarrassing 🙈).
Just the right files in the right place, nice and easy to find.
