We have just finished going through 15 blog posts comparing manual and automatic business processes, and now it’s time to sum them all up. Here they are:
- Order Fulfillment
- Customer Emails
- Bill of Materials
- Billing and Invoices
- Warehouse Management
- Unit of Measure Conversions
- Part Cost Calculations
- Multi-currency Conversions
- Supply Chain Management
If you’d like to see all of these points contained in a single document, check out the white paper entitled “Advantages of a Business Automation Platform.”
And now we’re going to have a little fun as we liken manual and automatic processes to manual and automatic transmissions in vehicles. Man, you’ll love this.
Stick It to the Man
There’s no reason why business processes have to be done the old-fashioned way. For example, just because companies in the past have used Excel or a pen and paper to manage inventory and place orders doesn’t mean you have to do that, as well. Times change, and it’s important to show supposedly superior companies that you can compete with them by automating your inventory and order management processes. That will stick it to the man.
Reports help you make clutch decisions. Analyzing data used to be an inordinate luxury, but now it’s a necessity. Use an automated business platform to study trends in sales, orders, vendors, warehouse layout, and more to make sure you’re maximizing efficiency and staying on top of your inventory levels.
Pedal to the Metal
Put the pedal to the metal and blaze through previously tedious tasks by using barcode scanners to speed up the process of picking, packing, and shipping items. You can train as many employees as you like to use parts of a business automation platform to help them do their jobs more efficiently.
