Data entry automation
I am helping a new footwear store that is using LS pos. I have some programming experience and helping them ty to automate their procedures. they are spending a ridiculous amount of time hand entering order and invoice information.
For example, i am having a hard time convincing the staff to enter po’s through LS because they then have to go enter the order again on each vendors site. So, i am trying to learn the capabilities for automated ordering. I need to find a solution where the po is electronically sent to the vendor b2b ordering site.
Also, it is typical for a customer to order a product that is not on hand. So at the pos, they have to build a new product which takes too much time at pos.
Nearly all products have a style color and size and those types of products cannot be imported from a vendor catalog.
Seems like one thing they need is a “master catalog” list that contains every product for every vendor?
I am hoping to get some insight or advice on what other companies are doing to automate their procedures, especially with vendor ordering and keeping product info up to date to minimize data entry
