Erply can handle it.

Increase the accuracy and speed of order fulfillment
If you take special orders, manage an e-commerce site, or only purchase inventory when you need it, Erply provides tools to get those products into your customers’ hands efficiently, while also giving you more leverage against suppliers.

A successful retail business with a central warehouse could easily see thousands of orders in a single day come through the warehouse. Managers might be required to create and manage daily fulfillment lists, which are prone to errors and can result in delays.
Fulfilling sales orders
With Erply, the system is automated, so a manager can review a current list of fulfillable orders in minutes, not only reducing errors but also improving the rate of order fulfillment.
In creating a sales order, customers have the choice to receive their entire order at once or in parts as goods become available. Erply automatically moves ready orders to a dedicated list, making it extremely easy for employees to pinpoint exactly which orders can be fulfilled on any given day.Learn more
