ReverseLogix vs Loop Returns: The Loop Returns Alternative

Point of View
Vast Warehouse Space Stocked Full of Inventory & Returns

Returns management software isn’t a one-size-fits-all. If you’re a retailer, eCommerce site, manufacturer or 3PL, you’ll want to consider: The volume of your returns business, your business goals (e.g. lowering costs or improving sustainability metrics), and any partner or vendor considerations.

Lots of vendors offer reverse logistics solutions, but there are big differences between who they serve and how they handle returns management. In this article, we compare Loop Returns and the ReverseLogix returns management system (RMS).

The Loop Returns Alternative that makes Returns Management Easy

ReverseLogix is a comprehensive, end-to-end returns management system that’s custom built for both B2C and B2B operations. Relied upon by large enterprises throughout the world, it manages large volumes of returns across client geographies and networks.

Loop Returns shines most strongly with smaller B2C businesses, especially retailers that rely on the Shopify eCommerce platform. It facilitates returns and exchanges, and provides a clean, customer-facing experience.

A Streamlined Returns Management Solution

Rather than rely on separate software systems for consumer returns, B2B returns, processing, resale or disposition, ReverseLogix does it all. No more point systems. No need to rip-and-replace anything. ReverseLogix orchestrates the entire returns process from start to finish. It integrates with your existing supply chain software tech stack, pushing and pulling data to finally give you an accurate picture of returns activities, costs and opportunities.

Here’s what ReverseLogix Customers have to Say

“One of the reasons we chose ReverseLogix was because we could use it in many of our facilities, whether that was with our 3PL partner, in our own warehouses, and potentially in other countries.”
– Director of distribution operations, global retailer 

“By being able to track the productivity of the repair centers, we can hold them accountable not only to quality but also turnaround time to ensure the consumers are getting bags fixed and back in their hands quickly.”
– Stephanie Kalch, senior director of customer service of North America, Samsonite

“I don’t know where our life would be without ReverseLogix right now.”
– Scott Allington, inbound and return goods supervisor, Amer Sports

Why Choose ReverseLogix?

We believe most companies spend too much to manage their returns. We believe many returns can be avoided, resold or re-used to minimize waste and recoup value. We believe a customer’s return experience is an opportunity to delight and strengthen brand loyalty.

Smarter, automated returns management

Lower costs and free up employee time by automating manual return tasks. Our configurable workflows guide and direct employees at every step, including inspecting, grading and repairs. Based on your returns data and priorities, speed up disposition time and get returns into the hands of another happy customer.

ReverseLogix RMS even offers auto-routing for product returns, making decision-making around returns faster and more consistent.

“I’d say [ReverseLogix] doubles the amount of returns we used to be able to do.”

Hayden Rice, returns specialist, Amer Sports

If you’re a B2B company with a partner or distributor network, use ReverseLogix to standardize rules and policies for returns and processes. Improve efficiency, reduce fraud, and give B2B customers an easy, B2C-like experience.

 A global appliance company replaced its manual returns processes with ReverseLogix to standardize returns initiation for its distributors. With this improved and detailed returns process, the company soon learned that some returned items were counterfeit products. They identified customers who abused the policy and significantly reduced return costs.

A better experience for B2C and B2B customers

While Loop Returns focuses on the B2C space, our RMS is your solution for B2C, B2B, or even hybrid operations. Beautifully branded, intuitive customer portals make returns easy for consumers or dealers.

Customer Case Studies

Global retailer processes returns 50-60% faster with ReverseLogix

A global brand of men’s and women’s footwear was struggling to keep up with returns volume and inventory management across +115 direct retail stores in the U.S., +300 international locations, as well as online, department store and specialty retail partners. Its SAP platform couldn’t manage the complexity.

The retailer chose the ReverseLogix returns management system (RMS). “One of the reasons we chose ReverseLogix was because we could use it in many of our facilities, whether that was with our 3PL partner, in our own warehouses, and potentially in other countries,” said the retailer’s director of distribution operations.

The retailer segmented the work with ReverseLogix into three projects:

  1. Transition from SAP to ReverseLogix for wholesale and retail returns.
  2. Build out a new system for digital returns based on ReverseLogix technology, plus integration with a WMS and the 3PLs’ systems.     
  3. Implement ReverseLogix for Canada-based item returns, as well as integrate it with NetSuite.

The results:

  • ReverseLogix was integrated with 3PL partner systems, NetSuite, and other supply chain software that included a home-grown solution.
  • Returns processing automation and inventory accuracy improved with the ability to receive and track every carton in the warehouse.
  • Employees can now sort large returns ahead of time and send them to storage. Sorts are now done in ReverseLogix instead of in a pick module, which has improved throughput.
  • Fast user adoption by the client’s name and 3PL partner team.
  • Fewer steps for product dispositioning

“Returns with ReverseLogix are at least 50-60% faster than the previous system.”

Director of Distribution Operations, Global Retailer

Genesco gets a near-immediate ROI with returns visibility

Genesco Inc. is a footwear focused, Nashville-based specialty retailer and branded company with more than 1,400 stores throughout the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and the Republic of Ireland. It is the parent company of the Journeys brand, among others.  

Genesco’s largest facility is a Journeys distribution center that was challenged with slow, labor-intensive returns management. They selected the ReverseLogix RMS to manage more efficient returns with a single platform.

“…We can go into one system and not have to do three or four other systems that we were doing previously. We just log into one and start the return and finish it all in one system.”

Erin Johnson, senior returns and vendor compliance manager

Within days of going live, they saw an ROI.

  • Time for processing a return is one-fifth the time it took before ReverseLogix.
  • Employees use ReverseLogix to see where returns have been initiated, if they’ve shipped out, and whether the item is at the warehouse.
  • Planning has significantly improved because of the visibility into returns initiation data and the items’ location. Staffing can be planned for the day or week, depending on how many returns are expected.
