Orcas have a unique ability to communicate in profound ways. This communication lies at the core of orca social awareness. Family members are seldom out of hearing range of one another. Their calls, as loud as a jet plane’s engines, echo over many miles in the ocean. Communication is an essential ingredient of the glue that brings harmony to the orca community.

Bees have an innate sense of purpose and thrive on efficiency. On a warm day, about half the bees in a hive stay inside beating their wings while the other half go out to gather pollen and nectar. Because of the beating wings, the temperature inside the hive is about 10 degrees cooler than outside. The bees rotate duties and the bees that cool the hive one day are honey gatherers the next.
Reducing the cost of turning orders into cash requires these three functions: manufacturing or procurement, inventory, and fulfillment. While outsourcing some of these functions can reduce costs, using automation to keep them in house can improve service and speed while reducing costs.
Reducing costs starts with visualizing the key processes of identifying ways to increase the speed of closing orders, keeping the right kind and amount of inventory, and optimizing fulfillment costs.
Instead of creating endless assets, retailers can enlist the help of automation to create quality, branded assets so that they can focus on serving their customers.
Retailers face exponential competition, changing customer behavior, and the technical complexity of omnichannel commerce. Technology helps retailers gain operational efficiency by forecasting demand, improving operations, and reducing costs.
