The remote order taking solution was first introduced in 2011 and has since generated a great popularity amongst salespeople that are on the go. This app is one of many features that complement the AIMS ERP Software Inventory Management system and offers salespeople an innovative tool to be more productive and increase sales at trade shows, client sites or anywhere globally.
Enhancing the use of technology and automating processes is one of AIMS core competencies and have come a long way with new, innovative and resourceful products. Apparel companies should also embrace technology and increase productivity and efficiencies.
The popular 80’s cartoon television show, the Jetsons, depicted a futuristic utopia with flying cars, smart homes, intricate robotics and automated computer systems that did everything for a person at home or in the office. One may feel that all this automation would make us lazy and obsolete. Is this really true or are we really making ourselves more productive and creating efficiencies to streamline our daily life and business?
What is this scary term automation all about? In a nutshell, “automation” is the use of a control system or information technology that reduces the need of human overhead for the production or manufacturing of goods and services. Automation excludes the need of constant physical human involvement. This frees up a person from the more tedious administrative or more manual intensive types of work and permits them to contribute more time to other areas of the business.
The Fashion Industry sees many struggles of its own. From supply chain challenges, inventory management, accounting, order taking, shipping and receiving, apparel businesses find themselves being that chicken running around with no head. Much of this is due to current manual processes and not enough manpower. Of course, many companies have limited budgets which makes a business automation solution more difficult to evaluate and implement.
Without automation the time to process each item increases, resulting in higher distribution costs. In the warehouse, manual invoicing and packing slow down the staff, while the lack of visibility makes it difficult to manage inventory and control shrink. At trade shows or offsite locations with potential buyers, not having inventory information, carrying samples, color swatches and an order sales book can bog one down. This makes it more difficult to close deals with customers.
