Managing your entire packaging process can be tricky, especially if you are getting your stock from different suppliers.
Your products might be coming on various vehicles, you might need to raise multiple purchase orders and may even find it difficult to keep track of your packaging spend.
Switching to a single supplier can help address all these issues, especially if they offer online order management services.
Etrading platforms, such as Macfarlane’s Simplicit.e, can help transform the speed and efficiency of your packaging operation and generate savings in various areas of your business.
Not only will you be able to reduce administration costs and the amount of paperwork, helping minimise waste and ensuring your office runs smoothly. You will also have a 24/7 access to all packaging products and your order history, making reordering faster, simpler and more accurate.
Other benefits of Simplicit.e include:
- The platform can be accessed from any device (mobile, laptop, tablet) and can be integrated with your in-house ordering systems.
- Customers can place orders via website, a mobile app or Punchout. Orders can also be sent via email or file transfer such as DropBox to give customers more choice and make the ordering process as easy and convent for them as possible.
- The system can send out automated dispatch and order tracking notifications and forward invoices directly to customer’s finance department.
- It provides access to packaging waste reports, allowing customers to control their packaging usage while keep all the necessary information in one place.
