Nowadays, despite being in the digital age, there are still companies that execute their processes manually, which generates difficulties and, in some cases, losses. Thus, tasks tend to slow down, documents to get lost, efficiency is reduced and there is no necessary control over the sales force to carry out optimal management.

The retail industry is increasingly competitive, companies are constantly looking for the final consumer to prefer their products over those of the competition and to achieve this, it is essential to have well-structured processes, which are developed with excellence at each stage, thus increasing the productivity of the company and therefore its sales.

To achieve perfection in the development of processes and strengthen performance in retail execution, it is necessary to manage the commercial process through software solutions that allow the automation of activities at the point of sale, such as; execution of tasks, intelligent analysis, monitoring of the work team, inventory management, among others.

Today, we'll tell you about some important benefits that companies obtain when they automate their sales process:

  • Reduction of execution times: by automating, the work team focuses on really relevant tasks, stopping investing their time in routine activities that generate wear and tear and do not add additional value to the company.
  • No more mistakes: when things are done manually, we are subject to making mistakes due to physical and mental exhaustion caused by repetitive tasks, this is avoided by automating them. For example, QuartzSales uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze data obtained at the point of sale, generate tasks, reminders of pending activities and much more.
  • Cost reduction: Automation allows you to do more with fewer resources. Through the organization of tasks, unnecessary activities are eliminated in the work teams, thereby improving the return on investment for the company.
  • Detailed information at all times: through automation, the team will have updated information in real time. This is of utmost importance for the detection of opportunities, as well as decision making. Likewise, information and communication flow efficiently between operational and managerial areas, improving global management.
  • Increase sales: through automated management at points of sale, inventory availability is ensured at all times; through the timely detection of shortages, purchase orders are generated on time, facilitating the negotiation of new orders.
