The goal of any nonprofit is to touch as many people as possible and affect their lives in a positive way. Nonprofits are, of course, cause-specific, with each organization targeting those of us who are emotionally connected in one way or another to the purpose or mission of its organization.
But nonprofits are businesses too, so they need to find ways to operate efficiently and satisfy their customer base with a high level of service. So when it comes to more technical aspects of business, such as preparing and sending out orders for shipping, it’s usually better for many nonprofits to recruit order fulfillment services to handle those details so they can continue to focus on touching as many people as possible with their cause.
Fulfillment Services Grow With Your Organization
The goal of any nonprofit, not unlike any for-profit business, is to grow. The importance of growth for nonprofits is even more essential because growth means they are literally helping to improve or even save lives. In another more practical sense, growth is tied more closely to survival for nonprofits because of the tight margins and system of operations.
Nonprofit or not, however, the expectation for delivering quality service isn’t diminished with the consumers. Being able to manage something like order fulfillment is a key aspect to determining how people engage with your brand and whether or not they continue to support its cause.
Having a system to interpret, prepare, track, and manage product orders is no small task, but it’s expected to be handled in a professional manner with efficient delivery and little to no mistakes. Partnering with a fulfillment company that has the experience needed to carry out these duties should be a major consideration for nonprofits rather than taking on those tasks on their own.
Fulfillment companies already have systems in place to deliver these orders which helps you ensure you are successfully communicating with your following and frees up your organization to do what it does best without worrying about shipping orders. And it’s important to note that as your business grows, managing orders only becomes more complicated; more orders need to be prepared, packed and shipped, and more people need to be segmented, all without losing a step.
