ReverseLogix vs Narvar: Discover the Narvar Alternative

Point of View
Man in Suit Uses Computer to Configure Reverse Logistics Process

Choosing a returns management system (RMS) requires careful considerations of a vendor’s capabilities, flexibility and team. The right fit will help you streamline reverse logistics operations, automate processes, improve the customer experience, and make tasks much faster and easier for employees.

The Complete Narvar Alternative

ReverseLogix is an end-to-end returns management system (RMS) purpose-built for B2C, B2B, and hybrid environments. It’s an excellent Narvar returns technology alternative because ReverseLogix is more comprehensive, with the ability to handle the entire returns process from start to finish. Let’s take a look at how Narvar and ReverseLogix returns management software compares.

Returns Management Made Easy

Traditionally, returns management for retailers, manufacturers, 3PLs and eCommerce companies has been a challenge because it requires using multiple point systems. Different systems are needed to process RMAs, orchestrate workflows, and initiate the customer refund or exchange.

Secondly, there has typically been very limited data into a company’s returns processes. Most returns management solutions fail to collect data that helps answer the most important returns management questions, such as:

  • Do some products have higher return rates than others?
  • What should the warehouse expect this week for return volumes?
  • Does staffing need to scale up?
  • How much does a return actually cost the company by category or SKU?
  • Should returns be resold, recycled, recommerced or landfilled in order to balance cost with sustainability goals?

Only ReverseLogix orchestrates and manages the entire, end-to-end returns process for B2C or B2B companies without the need for other point solutions. With this reach into the full lifecycle of a return, the ReverseLogix RMS gathers data and insights that answer all of the questions above, and more.

Here’s a helpful comparison chart to review ReverseLogix features vs Narvar features.

Analytics & Tracking

Only ReverseLogix offers an alternative with real-time tracking and insights across the entire returns journey. While Narvar can gather data focused on the customer journey (which is important), it is not able to collect and aggregate data from across a return’s lifecycle.


As the environmental impact of product returns becomes more concerning to companies and to consumers, companies with strong sustainability goals and outcomes will win out. ReverseLogix RMS gives you the tools to 1) sustainably manage product returns while maximizing resell, repair and recycling opportunities and 2) better meet customer needs the first time – avoiding resource-intensive returns in the first place.

Returns Management Software for Every Industry

Only ReverseLogix can manage B2C, B2C and hybrid return environments. Purpose-built with configurable and flexible workflows, we help the following industries optimize returns management.


With ReverseLogix, manufacturers efficiently process returns, return-to-vendor items, perform repairs and refurbishments, and complete put-aways. These advantages are especially critical as B2B purchasing moves online: Per McKinsey, 70% of B2B decision-makers say they would make new, fully self-serve, or remote purchases of more than $50,000 online.


ReverseLogix gives retailers a single system to manage all returns, across stores, online sites, microfulfillment centers and partner networks. The RMS integrates with other supply chain systems to manage each return and gather valuable data about your returns operations.

“Within days of starting up ReverseLogix, we saw an ROI.”

Leif Revere, Director of Distribution Systems, Genesco

eCommerce brands

The growth in eCommerce spending has resulted in a rise in product returns volumes. In fact, some eCommerce product categories have return rates as high as 30%!

This costs sellers in terms of money, time, packaging, and waste. With ReverseLogix, eCommerce companies can create and automate returns rules to speed up employee decisions.

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