Business Landscape Changed During Pandemic
E-commerce and home delivery have soared, while brick-and-mortar retail has seen drops in sales as customers have stayed at home. Some manufacturers have faced shortages of raw materials, even if they have had orders to fill. Other companies have cut back on their production capacity due to fewer orders. When business picked up, they found it challenging to attract employees.
In a third scenario, some manufacturers and distributors have managed to change their focus. These businesses could make or carry new products quickly and came through the pandemic relatively unscathed.
Efficiency a Priority in Post-Pandemic World
Companies may still find it challenging to fill orders and provide good customer service, especially if they can’t find enough workers. They will have to rely more on technology to automate tasks whenever possible.
When repeatable tasks, such as filling out sales orders and quotations are automated, your team members can complete these tasks more efficiently. They also have more time to make sales calls and interact with new and existing customers.
With electronic invoicing options, your sales representatives can present an invoice to the customer directly and collect deposits and final payments from the customer. Your company gets paid more quickly, which is much better for your cash flow—whether we are in a post-pandemic world or not.
