Boost Your Bottom Line

Your solution may be a simple, versatile SX™ or you may need an integrated SLAM (Sorting, Labeling and Manifesting) line with multiple automated packers. Yet whatever your e-commerce distribution center looks like, a Tension solution is designed to grow with you.

A Tension automated solution can:

  • Automate the hand pack process and reduce the time necessary to handle orders.
  • Significantly lower your labor cost per package and reduce the number of full-time and temporary associates allocated to fulfill orders.
  • Increase order capacity within the same square footage, thereby increasing your efficiencies.

Training and Implementation

Once you’ve selected your Tension solution, we move to action. A training plan is developed so your operators feel comfortable and ready to go. And with Tension’s easy-to-use solutions, it doesn’t take long. Typically training and setup is completed within a week.

Service Agreement

Select a Tension Service Agreement to ensure that you can connect with your Tension Service Technician at your most critical times. Tension offers several levels of service agreements to match your needs and budgets.

Packaging Material

Your packaging not only delivers it contents from point A to point B, it’s a messenger of your company image. Each time a customer sees your brand, make it count. Our polybags and consumable material can:

  • Brand your packaging with eye-catching graphics and promote your company image.
  • Create customer friendly and secure packaging options.

Whatever your Tension automated solution is, we have TEN Tuff packaging material to make it run.
