Dear manufacturing order management team,
We get it. The daily grind of manually re-entering order data from various sources into your manufacturing ERP can be maddening. It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole, over and over again. The inefficiency and potential for errors can be soul-crushing, and you’re not alone in this struggle.
We’ve heard your cries of frustration, and we’re here to tell you – we understand. Not only that but there are efficient ordering management solutions, even if you manufacture customized products that you build to order.
A Tale of Order Management Woes
Meet Sarah, a dedicated order-entry specialist at a manufacturing company just like yours. She starts her day by sifting through screens of emails and a pile of faxed orders, all in different formats. Then comes the stack of handwritten orders, followed by a barrage of phone calls from customers placing orders over the phone.
Sarah has a daunting task ahead of her. Her job now is to manually enter each order into her company’s manufacturing ERP software. It’s not just time-consuming; it’s mentally exhausting. And the fear of making a costly data entry error looms over her like a dark cloud.
One day, after a particularly grueling morning, Sarah had enough. She thought, “There must be a better way.” Fortunately, she is right.
A World Without Order Entry Pain
Imagine a world where Sarah’s morning is different. She sits down at her desk, logs into her company’s Frontier ERP (enterprise resource planning) software, and smiles.
Orders from the company website and from the dealer portal all flow seamlessly into the system, without her lifting a finger. The software is so easy to use that there are no more random faxes and emailed sales orders. It’s a good customer experience and good for sales reps and dealers too.
The ERP software intelligently captures each order. The system’s product configurator validates each quote, instantly updating inventory, checking finished goods, and modifying production schedules. The software sends purchase orders for any needed raw materials and generates accurate lead times.
Now, Sarah can focus more on customers and sales teams, ensuring she provides excellent customer service. Order-entry errors are virtually eliminated. Sarah’s confidence in her work soars. She can better support the sales process and help meet customer demands.
