With an OMS-ERP integration, retailers can get a unified 360-degree view of their supply chain operations, streamline their order-to-cash processes, optimize sourcing and logistics, and ensure accurate financial reporting.
Order and warehouse management software integration allows for real-time inventory visibility, syncing of stock changes, optimization of order routing, acceleration of order picking and packing, and minimization of human error.
By linking an OMS to accounting software, you can track completed and pending purchase/sales orders, automatically update sales ledgers, ensure timely order reconciliation, and calculate taxes more accurately.
Through integration with shipping carriers’ software, businesses can compare shipping rates, track shipments from the chosen carriers in real-time, optimize the delivery for purchase and sales orders, and gain end-to-end supply chain visibility.
The cost of order management solutions varies greatly depending on the project’s complexity and business requirements. The total cost can start at $100,000 for an MVP and reach $400,000 for a complicated solution with advanced capabilities and sophisticated workflows. For companies that want to upgrade their existing solution with new functionality, the cost of modifications can start at $50,000.
Custom software cost factors:
Whether you run a small retail store or a large online marketplace, implementing an order management tool can significantly accelerate and simplify your order fulfillment and improve your business operations.
By streamlining order management tasks, an OMS helps merchants reduce order fulfillment time, improve inventory control, optimize the supply chain, and reallocate resources for more complex tasks.
An OMS provides a consolidated, real-time view into each stage of the order management cycle and serves as a single source of truth for your sales, inventory, accounting, and customer data, facilitating informed decisions and more effective strategies.
Customer service teams can easily access real-time order or inventory information to help customers. Also, customers can place and track their orders without assistance, which gives them more control and frees customer service staff.
Order management solutions automate routine tasks, eliminate data silos throughout the sales and fulfillment processes, and minimize manual data entry. This helps prevent mistakes and makes commercial operations more accurate.
With an OMS, businesses can automate and optimize their back-office order management processes, thus reducing storage, shipping, handling, and labor costs. Moreover, OMS reports provide valuable insights for increasing a business’s cost-effectiveness and profitability.
By centralizing order fulfillment in an OMS, merchants can ensure fast and smooth order processing and delivery, offer customer-friendly omnichannel experiences, and increase consumers’ satisfaction with fast, consistent customer service.
Discovering and addressing possible challenges before adopting an order management system can help prevent operational problems, downtime, and losses.
With numerous OMS solutions on the market, companies can find it difficult to choose a single platform to meet their business requirements.
You can take the following steps to find the most suitable OMS for your business.
Discuss with stakeholders must-have and nice-to-have features in your future OMS, its integration with your corporate systems, and the devices you plan to use for order management. You should also take into account your company’s growth plans to select a solution scalable enough to accommodate increased order volumes.
You should decide whether to host and manage your OMS in-house or opt for a cloud-based application hosted on the vendor’s servers.
Submit a request for proposal with your requirements to different order management software providers to help you evaluate their offerings.
Once you have several proposals on hand, evaluate whether each system provides sufficient functionality to support your operations and achieve growth goals. Also, consider the pricing of each system to find the one that fits your planned budget.
