The correct order management software (OMS) can be a massive game changer going into this holiday season.
Learn what to consider if you’re thinking about improving upon your OMS, so you can hit the ground running moving forward at full momentum throughout the holiday season and into 2023.
The holiday season is fast approaching. Even if you don’t want to admit it yet. Someone once said, “Winter is coming…”
You just cleaned up and reorganized your warehouse back to that pre-holiday look and feel and you’re already thinking about another holiday season.
You’ve set your targets for revenue and traffic you expect to reach, and equally as important, you figured out that your current order & inventory management solution just can’t handle the sales volume increase that comes naturally this time of year.
So you start thinking to yourself, when would it be a good time to change your order management software (OMS) to get yourself ready for the holiday season?
While it’s on your plate as a must-do item, how quickly should you consider switching so you and your team are properly trained and ready for the holiday season using the new software?
Here are some facts for you to consider.
You have everything checked out and ready to go. You have your wish list of improvements and the “nice to haves” from every department that wants to see improvement in its current process.
You compile this list together and you’re off to find yourself a new OMS.
The calls, the demonstrations, the back and forth.
You want to make sure you’re considering everything possible that could be included inside an OMS. The changes, and the amount of time it will take to implement the new software.
- Merging your data into the new system
- Tying in your eCommerce solution
- End-to-end testing
- Training you and your staff
You want to give yourself and your staff plenty of time to get everything set before the holidays, but it seems like an impossible task.
