7 Ways Automated Order Management Benefits Your Business

Without effective order management, it’s impossible to meet customer expectations, capture vital sales information, manage inventory, and keep customers up-to-date on their orders. But the reality is that most companies suffer from gaps in their systems and processes. These gaps often prevent order management from being as efficient as it needs to be.

A popular way to resolve this problem is with automation, plugging the gaps with apps that manage the business process and the data. This approach leads to a variety of benefits from a better customer experience to minimizing the impact of supply chain disruption.

Many companies right now are integrating their systems and transforming their processes to create seamless end-to-end order management operations. This provides accurate visibility into order status and unlocks the power of data to improve fulfillment times.

 

The 7 Benefits of Automation

At every step of the order process journey, automation gives you more visibility and control. You can use automation and bespoke low-code applications, to effortlessly access sales data, manage inventory, and keep customers updated. You’ll also be able to fulfill orders faster and with greater accuracy, creating happier customers.

Faster fulfillment
By automating manual tasks, several key steps in the order approval process can become instantaneous, reducing the time it takes for an order to reach the customer. Your systems will be able to acknowledge an order request, check inventory, and approve the request without human input. That frees up your workforce to focus on getting deliveries to your customers.

Improved tracking
Using low-code automation applications, you’ll improve communication between all your different systems. This means you and, more importantly, your customers will always know the status of their order, improving trust and providing a more complete customer experience.

Better inventory management
Effective inventory management relies on two things: knowing how much product you have and knowing how much product you’ll need. By connecting your order management process with an automated system, stock availability will be automatically updated, meaning customers can be sure that their order is in stock. You’ll also gain access to a range of insights that can help you allocate warehouse stock based on predicted demand, keeping you one step ahead.

Fewer errors
Mistakes are a serious threat to order fulfillment. An incorrectly entered address, item number, or price will leave your customers frustrated. Automation reduces the likelihood of human error, ensuring that orders are completed more accurately.

Automatic data capture
Applications that automate order management can track and record every stage of the order process. You can use this wealth of data for more effective enterprise resource planning, accurate demand forecasting, and order fulfillment optimization.

Easy to scale
Software solutions can scale effortlessly with demand. If your business experiences peak periods, or is still growing, adopting automation gives you the ability to scale your order management capabilities while minimizing or removing the need to drastically restructure your process or take on more staff.

Business agility
When disruption inevitably arrives as it has in recent years, gaps and workarounds make it extremely difficult to respond quickly and change the way you work. Low-code process applications not only provide consistency and governance, they are also easy to change when your business needs to adapt. That might be integrating a new system, adjusting a process step, or onboarding a new delivery company.

 

How Leading Businesses Have Automated Their Order Management
