Execute Perfect Order Fulfillment

How much would give to have perfect order fulfillment? Perfect order fulfillment, especially fast perfect order fulfillment, sounds like an impossible dream.

There are a lot of pieces involved in executing orders accurately: you need to be working from the correct data, inventory and other systems need to be running optimally, and your team needs to be operating with peak efficiency if you want to complete orders quickly.

Perhaps you have given up on achieving perfect order fulfillment because you think it would be too expensive, even if it was possible. However, (near) perfect order achievement is possible if you invest in the right ERP solution. Enterprise Resource Planning software is a standard part of most manufacturers’ business model, and when set up optimally, it can allow you to impress customers with consistent fulfillment delivery. Here are a few ways the right ERP setup will allow you to achieve perfect order fulfillment.

Order Accuracy

To achieve perfect order fulfillment, you must have accurate orders. Everyone suffers when you deliver an order on time, but the goods aren’t what the customer asked for. Inaccurate orders are caused by bad data. Bad data often arises when there is more than one place information is stored (like when you continue to use paper order slips that get entered into an ERP later). To ensure information is reliable, have your team put information directly into your ERP and use it as the central place for finding information.

If you want to prevent human error even further and increase your speed, using tools like barcode scanners are great for streamlining the entire process. With a barcode ERP setup, it is especially easy to set up required fields and parameters for acceptable data entry to ensure that information is added to your system correctly.

By setting up automated alerts in your ERP, you can immediately notify production when a new order comes in so they can add it to the schedule. By using an ERP that offers real-time data, you can see order progress, what needs to be done, and coordinate multiple orders at once. An ERP assists with every aspect of order fulfillment, so you deliver perfectly executed orders every time.

Increase Efficiency

To execute perfect order fulfillment, you need to operate efficiently. Many manufacturers get stuck in maintaining the status quo and continuing to do things the way they have always done them. This strategy may work for a while, but eventually the old way of doing things simply won’t cut it anymore.
