11 Apr 2023 Helpful Tips

Are you looking for an Order Management System for your business?

With many providers available, choosing the best Order Management System for your business can be difficult.

To help you choose the best option for your business EasyVend has put together 5 things that you need to look for in an Order Management System.

Let’s get into it!

1. Automation

The main reason for implementing an Order Management System (OMS) at your business is to streamline and simplify daily tasks. The first and arguably most important thing that you need to look for in an Order Management System before choosing is what type of Automation features a provider has.

The OMS that your business chooses needs to be able to automate daily tasks and give you more time to focus on maximising growth. Some of the essential tasks that your Order Management System of choice needs to automate include Inventory Management, Ordering, Invoicing and Customer Payments. The more tasks the Order Management System can automate, the better!

2. Accounting Integration

Accounting has always been a struggle for many SMEs. The second thing that you need to look for when choosing an Order Management System for your business is Accounting Integration.

Accounting integration is the process of combining your Order Management System with your Accounting Software. When a software is integrated, data will transfer instantly and accurately from the program of entry to the other linked program once entered.

Having integrated accounting will centralise your businesses operations into one location and will reduce the amount of time your accountant needs to complete their works which will ultimately slash your accounting fees!

3. Flexible Access

This point is so important! Many Order Management System providers charge per user. To streamline your businesses operations, it is important that you choose an Order Management System that provides flexible access to unlimited users.

The reason why your business wants a flexible access system is it will centralise your businesses operations in one location. All your staff can use your order management system as their primary tool for their day-to-day tasks. Having an openly accessible system will create better transparency at your business, and a more efficient work environment.

4. Real-time Insights

Reporting is a vital part of running a business. Another key thing that you need to look for before choosing an Order Management System is how a provider generates real-time data that you can use to escalate growth.

A good Order Management System will provide you with instant, real-time business insights that will position you to make faster, more strategic business decisions that escalate growth.

5. Available Support

An important factor that so many businesses overlook when deciding which Order Management System to use is Support. Your business will need instant available support if and when you need it.

Let’s face it, it is impossible to master any software or application. Issues can and will occur. When running a B2B Supply Chain time is money, your business cannot afford to holt operations for any period of time.

It is important to choose an OMS provider that delivers fast and available support 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Final Word,

When choosing an Order Management System for your business it is important to understand what you need and what you want it to do. To make the best decision for your business, there are a few things you need to look for in an Order Management System. The 5 examples presented above should be considered prior to choosing an OMS for your business.
