3 Ways Masterplan ERP Can Optimize Your Entire Order Entry Process
Automation is a popular buzzword that companies like to use when talking about their various processes. The idea is that by automating certain procedures, you can speed up production, eliminate errors and save both time and money. On paper, this sounds easy enough. However, automating something as complex as your order entry processes is far from simple.
For many companies, you may only get one shot at optimizing an automated entry process. However, if done incorrectly, you could suffer massive setbacks and damage customer relationships. Therefore, it is important to audit any solution before investing fully. This blog will discuss why ERP Masterplan’s Product Configurator is your ideal partner for all your order entry issues and solutions.
#1 - Ability To Handle An Uncertain Future
Every company has an ideal way to receive and fulfill orders. Unfortunately, things do not always run as smoothly as intended. There will always be unforeseen issues and challenges no matter how much you plan, automate, and optimize. By having the ability to react quickly and adapt to these changes can be the difference between success and failure.
Our Product Configurator is designed to help you tackle things like demand changes. For example, if our system detects a sudden need for a specific type of product, you will be automatically notified. This ensures your customers will never leave your website empty-handed. Our solutions are also able to forecast your inventory needs based on factors such as order history. This way, you will always know when it’s time to double down on certain items before it is too late.
#2 - Quickly Replenish Inventory Anywhere
As a business owner, you are constantly juggling several tasks and responsibilities at once. As a result, it is impossible to stay on top of every item in your inventory portfolio. Therefore, any solution you invest in must be able to notify you when you are running low on a specific item. What separates us from the competition is the ability to quickly replenish your inventory with just a few clicks, no matter where you are located.
For example, let’s say you are on a business trip hundreds of miles away from your warehouse. You are in the middle of a meeting and receive a notification that you are running low on a key item. You can easily access your dashboard via your mobile device and replenish those items in just a few clicks. This allows you to manage your entire inventory without taking you away from your other key responsibilities.
#3 - Saves Time and Money While Improving Relationships
Without an automation solution, you or a team member will be required to manually manage every item in your inventory. This will require hundreds of man-hours that could be better spent helping customers or growing your business. Instead of working on money-making ideas, you are forced to waste time ensuring you never run out of your important parts and products.
Our Product Configurator manages your entire inventory for you. Now, you and your team can take all of those hours and invest them into things that will improve your customer relationships. This may include improving other parts of your business and the overall customer experience. Furthermore, our solution makes sure that your customers can always order the items they are looking for. This will give you a reputation as a reliable vendor and a partner they can count on for the long term.
The reason companies like yours invest in our Product Configurator is simple. We understand what it takes to optimize your entire order and fulfillment process properly. We know that things rarely go according to plan and that you require a flexible solution that can anticipate and solve issues long before they impact your business.
