Whether your organization has already embraced process automation, or automating your order to cash (O2C) process is new territory, the good news is that sales order automation is well-charted territory. These days the technologies, systems and practices to achieve a fast return on investment from sales order automation software are well-established and well documented.
Here are four top reasons that corporate executives can understand and appreciate when making the case for sales order automation.
Position the organization to scale for growth. Automating the sales order process relieves the dependency on individual staff members to ‘own’ the process and knowledge specific to order processing. Creating a rules-driven, automated process for reading and extracting data from customer purchase orders, automating data entry to generate sales orders and routing documents and data for approval ensures that the sales order process runs smoothly regardless of the volume of orders to process and the staff on hand.
Reduce costs and shorten supply chain cycle times. Targeting and eliminating the inefficiencies associated with manually sorting, classifying and filing sales documents, combined with automating data entry by extracting data from sales documents can reduce the time and effort required to process sales orders by 90%. A business case based solely on those efficiency gains can often cost justify a sales order automation project with an achievable ROI within 6 to 12 months.
Greater Control and Process Visibility. By extracting data from process-related documents and intelligently capturing that data earlier in the process, organizations achieve greater process transparency more quickly and efficiently, with dashboard-level visibility to key performance indicators than can be shared enterprise-wide.
Enhanced Customer Service. Once a customer has agreed to do business with your organization, your first opportunity to win their loyalty and establish a good relationship is when you fulfill their first order. Whether it’s a matter of setting the bar with a new customer or raising the bar with existing customers, sales order automation helps to establish your organization as a fast, efficient and reliable partner worthy of their trust and ongoing business.How Artsyl Can Help
