Thriving during the busiest time of the year

The fast growth of wholesale holiday decor company Cody Foster & Co was straining its order management system and resulting in higher costs. Wipfli Digital helped select and implement NetSuite to vastly improve order and warehouse management, finance and purchasing.

  • 130.1

    more orders filled than previous year

  • 48.5

    of previous year’s staff required to fulfill orders


Disparate modules within Cody Foster’s order management system were forcing duplicate data entry and management, creating slow and error-prone processes and making it difficult for employees to track and understand inventory levels. The lack of visibility led to increased costs and inefficient warehousing. When the growing company needed to open a new warehouse and increase inventory levels further, it became even more challenging to maintain and track inventory.


By implementing the ERP NetSuite, Wipfli helped Cody Foster integrate its webstore with order management and add warehouse management capabilities. To bridge the gap between system functionality and Cody Foster’s desired workflows, Wipfli quickly identified and implemented solutions, customizing the system to meet Cody Foster’s needs. Wipfli also researched and recommended a payroll solution that could seamlessly connect to NetSuite, leading to the implementation of isolved.

Services provided


With NetSuite up and running, Cody Foster was able to meet growing demand for orders during the busiest time of the year with greatly increased efficiency. In fact, its warehouse processes were 2.5 times more efficient after Wipfli implemented and customized NetSuite. Cody Foster was able to ship out 140% more product with 65% of the previous year’s required staff. And due to Wipfli's contributions on payroll, Cody Foster was able to seamlessly transition payroll providers and save costs as well.

“We couldn’t have moved forward with NetSuite without Wipfli. I really appreciate how solution based they are and how we worked through problem areas with big-picture goals in mind.”
