Some of the factors that businesses must consider while evaluating order management software:
Real-time stock update
The order management system should provide the business with a real-time update about the stock. Having accurate data on stock ensures that businesses never run out of stock or have excess stock. Stockout may result in unfulfilled customer orders and lead to a bad customer experience. Whereas, excess stock can result in wastage of the stock.

The software should automate the generation of order summaries and invoices once the order is confirmed. Order summaries and invoices must be shared with the customers in the order history on the customer interface. This helps in maintaining transparency between the customers and businesses and also prevents any kind of future customer disputes.

No business can afford to lose customers’ personal data so businesses must look into the web service that is being used by the software provided. AWS is one of the most preferred web services and is considered to be the safest and most secure web service.

It must give the customers ease where they can place, edit, cancel the order, and even pause in the case of the subscription model on their own.

These updates are sent via push notifications, sms, and emails. The real-time update ensures transparency and fair trade between the customer and the business.
