It's simple, we want to grow your business
We know that regardless of your size when your business experiences growth, the running of your web store experiences exponential growth too.
Sometimes rapid success can become too much to handle. That’s where FastAnt can help. As your business grows, so do we. We will adapt and change to accommodate the magnitude of your business.
If you outgrow your e-commerce site and need to expand, that’s not an issue. We’ll help you make the move and simply reconnect our systems to your new site without you experiencing any downtime.
Our plug & play e-commerce shop-connectors link with your online shop, allowing us to fulfil your orders and deliver straight to your customer.
We will provide you with an e-commerce back office system that facilitates the interface between your online shop and our warehouse.
Our back-office systems can link to multiple stores to centralise the fulfilment of all your orders. Each store-connector is tagged with the name of your store so orders can be analysed, easily supporting your omni-channel sales strategies.
Our systems are incredibly flexible and we can allow you to place manual orders that by-pass your store or even import bulk orders via a spreadsheet.
By using this system you can configure and review the key fulfilment items for your store:
Our e-commerce solutions are simple. We use our shop-connectors to link-in to your store. Your orders are then sent direct to our warehouse for our team to fulfil and despatch straight to your customers’ door.
The online shop-connectors not only transfer your orders into our warehouse, they also supply your e-commerce site with the fulfilment status and delivery tracking information. This can then be fed back to your own website, allowing your customers to track their orders.
We can also provide interactive visual dashboards to give you the ability to review your fulfilment statistics and assess the performance of your stock.
Bespoke Software Development
Unlike many other fulfilment partners, FastAnt has a dedicated software development team, focussed on enhancing our systems and providing our customers with bespoke solutions to help you escape any boundaries that may be restricting your growth.
Your products are only an overnight delivery away from 98% of the country. Our centralised location improves your delivery times and reduces your costs.
Our modern warehousing facilities are ideally located next to the M1 in Leicestershire and we have a variety of storage options depending on the size or nature of your items.
We store and fulfil items from pin badges to large air conditioning units. Our flexible premises can cater for all products big or small.
Any special instructions for a delivery received from your store is transferred onto the delivery label and included on the package. We have a restricted access, secure area for valuable stock which is fully monitored by CCTV cameras.
FastAnt can help you relocate your products from your incumbent supplier and our proven implementation process will allow your store to experience no downtime during this critical phase.
Don’t let the worry of warehousing and fulfilment hold you back. Choose FastAnt as your e-commerce partner and grow into the business you want to be. We are trusted by companies both large and small and have been providing bespoke fulfilment services for many years.
Your success is our success.
The FastAnt “PnP Back Office” is your interface between your store and our warehouse fulfilment services.
In order to link your e-commerce stores with our warehouse, we provide you with a secure online virtual warehouse called “PnP Back Office”.
The PnP Back Office uses our unique shop connectors to pull your orders from your webshops and inject them into our warehouse fulfilment system that our team uses to pick and despatch your orders. You will have a dynamic view of the fulfilment process and the status of your orders from receipt, through picking, packing and despatch. Stock levels, fulfilment status and courier order tracking data is then fed back into your site by our shop connectors from the PnP Back Office. The PnP back office can also control your returns process using our Collect+ partnership. You can use the PnP Back Office to create manual orders behind your website and also import bulk orders for fulfilment by an Excel import facility.
Whether you have one e-commerce store or multiple stores, the PnP Back Office can accommodate all of your orders.
Each time you introduce a new store, we simply add an extra shop connector. All of your orders from each of your stores are combined for fulfilment, and because each shop connector “tags” the name of the store the order was received from, we can even produce bespoke delivery notes detailing each particular store. The shop connector each perform a series of tasks to interact with your e-commerce store. We have developed connectors that link to the most popular platforms and as we develop our own software systems, we can easily develop bespoke connectors for legacy or obscure platforms.
We are members of the UKWA and the DMA as well as partners in quality with Royal Mail.
We are ISO 9001, ISO 14001, IS0 18001 and ISO 27001 accredited.
