Are you tired of printing and mailing out expensive paper catalogs? Or, that your sales team is lacking efficiency and up to date information contained in static paper catalogs? Or, that your sales team looks more like the Olympic weight lifting team because they are carting around so many paper catalogs? Let us help. Here's how you can enhance your sales orders with electronic order presentation and manage your customers, products and sales more effectively. First, let’s take a look at some areas where your current processes could use a boost with electronic order capture.
Too Many Paper Catalogs
Your customers want to see what they’re purchasing based on the visuals that you can provide, be it samples or catalogs. Why not impress them with organized, light weight, visually pleasing digital product presentations that enhance their experience? Or, for those customers who know what they want, prepare customized presentations designed with their particular needs and buying history in mind. They’ll be much more engaged when you save them time and present relevant options with electronic order presentation and capture. Plus, they will be more likely to trust your product suggestions in the future. Providing your customers with a customized tear sheet and professional-looking orders will keep your product top of mind and leave a lasting impression of professionalism.
Inaccurate Sales Orders
As a business, you want to improve order accuracy and process efficiency. Handwriting orders and searching for product data through static catalogs or spreadsheets invites mistakes, especially when there is so much paper to leaf through. Electronic order capture keeps all of your product information in one centralized place, providing quick access to information like order minimums, availability, current customer pricing, and sales history. A loaded system keeps sales reps prepared with the most up-to-date product information, providing them methods to quickly find and present products allowing them to build orders with ease.
Cumbersome Buying Experience
You’re potentially losing the attention of your customers while you’re wandering through pages of catalogs and scribbling down notes to later decipher and create an order. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all of your product information digitally so that you can swiftly move from one product or catalog to another and nimbly transition from presentation to order capture? Imagine the ease of searching for an item by category or attribute, or scanning an item barcode for instantaneous order creation.
