Management of orders at different stock points is a critical part of any sales and distribution system. Days are gone, where the customer usually provides the purchase order to stock point and the data entry operator at stock point punches the order in the system, and converts the same to sales order. This system is now replaced with highly efficient integrated supply management system, where the customer electronically generates/transfers purchase order to stock point, which in turn, just converts the same into a sales order and process the sales order.EOMS Solution overview
EOMS allows field force to manage large volume of retail customers/wholesalers spread over large geographical area effectively. For generating the order, EOMS also offers capabilities to refer to historical purchase pattern as well as actual stock and sales data at customer end. There are various methods incorporated to efficiently consolidate customer stock and sales data (secondary stock and sales) in EOMS using online interface for excel based data transfer OR email based automatic data consolidation. Field Force can get information on order status, dispatch status as well as pending orders. Tertiary customer can be linked with secondary customers and in turn to primary customers for order servicing.

EOMS – order management software seamlessly allows users to create orders in a quick and efficient manner and provide required alerts based on historical sales or secondary stock and sales data if available.
