For suppliers of Fast Moving Consumer Goods, where your products have a very short shelf life, a top priority of your operation is to make it super-easy for your salespeople and/or order-intake-team to process frequent orders from your retail store customers, and super-easy for those same customers of yours to submit their orders, and get real-time insight into your stock availability.
Quite often, your customers’ stores do not have a lot of staff on premises. Smaller convenience stores in particular, may have just one person fulfilling multiple duties during their shift: stocking shelves, answering the phone, cooking food, and acting as cashier. They don’t have much time for a lengthy inventory analysis and purchase-order submission process. The quicker and easier they can place an order, the better.
With Cloudfy’s B2B ecommerce platform, your FMCG customers can quickly order and replace time sensitive inventory. The following out-of-the-box features can help both you the distributor AND your customers efficiently submit and process high order volumes and streamline the ordering process, eliminating errors, improving customer satisfaction, and saving both time AND money!
