The client was looking for a transparent process to maximize efficiencies and automate dealer order management aspects of the business. Before partnering with Damco, the client relied heavily on manual processes to enter data such as order details, invoices, and inventory. The complete process was time-consuming, overwhelming for their employees, and prone to manual errors. The client realized the need for an automated platform that could easily manage dealer and product information; reduce work duplicity; connect process silos; and take some burden off their employees by reducing manual interventions.
The client was also looking for a web portal and a mobile app that integrate seamlessly with their CRM as well as ERP system to efficiently handle all the dealer requirements. They wanted to automate and enhance the complete dealer management process to – reduce the turnaround time for deliveries; provide an option for easy placement and tracking of the orders; enable hassle-free access to all the reports and past orders – all through a user-friendly web portal and a mobile app.
Manual management of orders
Inefficient dealer order management process
No automated order tracking and delayed delivery times
Lack of automation leading to human errors and work duplicity
No mobile app or web portal in place for self-service

After careful consideration, the team implemented a customized dealer order management system, built on the Salesforce® platform. It helped the client gather all information related to products, dealers, inventory, and deliveries at a centralized location. It automated the complete data entry process of submitting orders and invoices; resulting in reduced turnaround time for the distribution and reconciliation process.

Damco’s team also integrated with BUSY, their existing accounting software, with the new platform for easy authentication and authorization of various external dealers.
