How to leverage distributed order management for your business
Here’s how to make business sense of a distributed order management system
In this series, we talked of DOM – what it is, and what you should know before you implement such a system. Read it here.
What can DOM do for your business?
For instance, say I order a dress from pantaloons online on Monday. The order is to be delivered on Sunday. However, I leave town on Friday. With a DOM system, the retailer is able to give me complete visibility of the order as it is being shipped, as well as the option to track the shipment. Further, I am able to decide whether I would like to collect the order at the shop itself, reschedule it as per my convenience, or have it delivered.
Also, if I want same day delivery, it can be easily managed via DOM. The retailer could simply check the availability of inventory via the OMS, and ship to the customer’s location.
