Retailers understand the importance of keeping the shelves always stocked. It has a domino effect on all key business parameters like sales, walk-ins and customer loyalty. A customer who is walking empty-handed out of the store is not just a lost sale but could be lost customer for life. It doesn’t come as a surprise then, that retailers are always looking to solve this problem in the quickest and the most efficient way.
While there are scores of orders or perhaps, hundreds of orders placed from a retail store every month, most of them are repeat orders. Some SKUs sell faster than others and need to be restocked more often. Given this, the easiest way to do this is automate ordering for the fast-moving SKUs so that retailers can focus on other parts of their job. But traditional methods of ordering based on relationship between the vendor and the retailer, phone calls and handwritten order forms still rule the roost when it comes to placing these orders. This is because of lack of proper technology solutions which let the retailers in automating orders.
