Powering fulfillment, inventory, and business intelligence for the world's greatest brands, Skubana is the cutting-edge SaaS technology transforming commerce operations. Simply put, we are the Operating System of Commerce that runs the backend of modern retail. If you have recently bought something on Amazon or a Shopify website, there is a chance your order might have been fulfilled through Skubana. If you want to know the magic behind how modern commerce works from the moment the checkout button is clicked, you have come to the right place.

Take the last time you bought something on Amazon. If the brand you bought from on Amazon is using Skubana (very like that they are!), your order would flow into our platform among thousands of other orders from other sales channels that brand is selling on, such as eBay, Jet.com, Shopify, etc.

Skubana might detect that the warehouse from which your product was supposed to ship from is out of stock, and route your order to the next geographically-closest warehouse to you. If you had ordered multiple products, Skubana would automatically split that order, and route each portion to the appropriate fulfillment center.

Skubana would then rate shop in real time across FedEx, UPS, DHL, US Postal Service, and apply the cheapest shipping rate for the brand, but still within the time delivery window you had requested at time of your purchase.

Using machine learning algorithms, Skubana would continuously replenish that brand to be optimally in stock, while also calculating their profitability for the product you ordered, down to the fraction of a penny.

All of this happened in a matter of milliseconds.
