How ERP integration handles split orders
Many e-commerce companies are inclining towards constantly evolving themselves to keep up with the growing demands of online buyers. Keeping up with the multiplying growth in orders is not as easy as it seems. Research states that almost 58% of the e-commerce companies assert that inventory management is the #1 area of their fulfillment and distribution operations they need to improve.
About 56% say that their ERP is not very efficient and is not meeting their needs as an end-to-end order processing solution. The most common challenge all of these e-commerce companies face is managing the order and inventory. Most, of the e-commerce players, are using the method of splitting orders to maintain their inventory.What is Split Order?
“Split Order” is precisely splitting an order into separate orders. The items in an order are split into multiple orders with unique order id automatically based on product attributes or the number of items added to the cart. With different order ids, it is easier for the customers to view all the order ids in their Order History and track them separately.
Nearly two-thirds say they are only “somewhat satisfied” with their fulfillment and order-taking methods, while almost 15% claim to be dissatisfied with their order handling methods.Why do B2B companies Split Orders?
