In today's innovation economy, it's a race to see who can innovate better and faster. Manual order processing doesn't fit that model. However, it can be overwhelming to decipher which of the many order automation solutions actually meets your company's needs. Here are four important questions to answer before making the leap to sales order automation:
1. How will this affect my staff? An easy-to-use sales order automation solution creates space for staff to focus on solving problems, building customer relationships and driving growth. Allowing technology to take over the tedious work of extracting order data with total accuracy lets employees focus on higher value strategic activities instead of manually entering orders or checking for order errors.
2. Will my previous EDI investment go to waste? Many solutions allow you to build on your existing EDI infrastructure. Pick a solution that integrates with your platform and treats emailed and printed orders just like standard electronic documents without using templates.
3. How will this affect my customers? With systems like EDI, your customers have to make both a financial and technical investment to reap the benefits. That's not the case with sales order automation. It can be implemented with no changes to business practices, which will help your company and your customers avoid headaches. And a simplified ordering process will make your company easier to work with.
4. Will this solution require a large budget? On average, sales order automation lowers the cost of order processing by 80 percent. In addition, cloud-based solutions don't require expensive software, hardware or upgrades to get started and are available quickly. Lowering operational costs with the right solution immediately bumps up profitability while also driving efficiency and building capacity for higher volumes.
