Many growing companies are lean for years before hiring the right leaders to head up customer service or sales. Instead, founders are often toiling 24/7 to build their company and want to be able to see how their business is doing from their mobile phone.
Mobile dominates practically everything we do today, and the cloud-based software you selected to help you run your business should effectively do the same.
Whether you need to access a report, accept an order on the spot or assign a task to an employee to handle an urgent request, you should be able to do that from a mobile application, not a poorly rendered mobile site.
You should also be able to go on vacation without your laptop and handle anything from anywhere. The good news is that best-in-class wholesale inventory management software, like Systum, often come with mobile applications that help keep founders in the know and on the task.
So, here are a few scenarios you should be able to handle from your mobile phone, whether you’re a B2B or B2C business.
- Sales. You should be able to process and place an order for a customer on the spot, whether you’re at a trade show or in their office. You should be able to accept a credit card payment or invoice them at a later date.
- Communication. You should be able to log into the application and send an instant message or email or task someone with a to-do from within the app. This enables you to stay on top of urgent requests you see from your CEO or sales view.
- Get business-critical data. You should be able to see real-time inventory numbers for specific products or channels of business. If you’re a growing manufacturer or wholesale distributor, the last thing you want to do is run out of inventory during a seasonal rush or when your best client places a large order.
- Get a quick, high-level snapshot of how your business is really doing. You should be able to see overall sales for a predetermined period of time, sales in the pipeline and customer service statistics, like how many support tickets are open or unresolved.
