The Need to Build an Online Ordering SystemAugust 27, 2021
It is no longer the time for all business transactions to be carried out directly. In the last decade, almost all businesses from B2B to B2C have entered the digital world (Online Ordering System) as the most crucial part of sales and various other transactions. Mobile devices have also become the main tool of today’s transactions. Especially in the past year, during the pandemic, health protocols have become our new focus. Technology is now a keyword in the success of various business activities today, including the distribution business.
The demand for the use of technology has now become an absolute thing that must be mastered by almost every company. When physical meetings were limited due to the ongoing pandemic, online sales and e-commerce platforms actually reaped a significant increase. With sales transactions through the internet network, orders can be made directly by consumers because information about detailed product info is already listed on the product catalog page. Bargaining processes such as conventional transactions can also be minimized so that transactions become more efficient. In addition, from the seller’s point of view, the recording process will be easier because it is done automatically and monitoring of sales progress can also be monitored.
The most important thing with building an online ordering system is to encourage the growth of new opportunities. Why is that? First, the Indonesian population is spread across various islands, is a very large market share, the existence of an online ordering system makes it easier for companies to reach a wider market. Second, the existence of an online ordering method will help companies increase brand awareness because product information is easy to obtain. Third, online ordering makes the store seem “no need to close”. Consumers can place orders anywhere and anytime.
