Remote order entry using laptops
Edible Remote is an optional add-on package that provides salespersons with ability to take orders at remote customer locations using laptop computers. After each order is taken, the data can be automatically transferred back to Edible Software via the Internet, modem or an on-site cradle, where it can then be reviewed, any needed changes can be made, and the order then accepted as a sale.
Like Edible PDA, Edible Remote can literally put more profit-making potential in the palm of your hand by increasing the efficiency of your sales personnel – thereby also increasing their profitability.
At each customer's site, Edible REMOTE can optionally, automatically display the inventory items routinely purchased by that customer, and this information, coupled with the specific item description and price per unit-of-measure for that customer, allows the salesperson to quickly price and then enter the quantity of each item requested. Alternatively, if needed, the required item can be quickly located within the laptop, or else it can be entered by scanning the bar code, if the laptop is fitted with an external barcode scanner.
When convenient, one or more Edible Remote orders can be quickly and easily transferred back to Edible Software either via the Internet, by modem, or by physically returning to the office. Thereafter, authorized personnel can review each received order, make any needed adjustments and then accept it as a regular order within Edible Software.
Edible Remote is a complete, feature-rich order entry module that will allow your salespeople to:
- Download all or only that salesperson's customers into the laptop
- Increase order-entry speed and accuracy by having each customer's standard inventory items inserted automatically into the PDA screen
- Display item pricing by customer, by ordered unit of measure, thereby maximizing revenues and profit margins
Customer satisfaction increases by having face-to-face contact and this, combined with the fact that no order-entry data re-keying into Edible Software is required, your company will improve functionality, increase sales and maximize profitability by using Edible Remote.
