Many businesses use ERP solutions such as SAP, Oracle NetSuite, or Katana. Whichever order management system or software you choose, make sure it meets all the needs of your business and has features that streamline your order process.
Here are 5 best practices for order management:
- Track your inventory in one place: aggregate all your locations and warehouses into one system and keep an eye on all your locations simultaneously
- Don’t be afraid of automation: it may seem like giving up control at first, but you will soon realize that automation speeds up and optimizes your workflow
- Go over your costs: keeping track of money and time spent on different processes can reveal hidden fees that you weren’t aware of and help avoid them in the future
- Make returns as effortless as possible: as much as you perfect your product and packaging, there will still be returns. Make a habit of handling them regularly and automate as much of the process as possible
- Train your team: a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and surely you want your chain to be a strong one. Ensure your staff is skilled in taking care of your product and customers
