The Business Challenge
The customer base of Pushbrite is spread across the country. Innumerous enquiries are received by the marketing team everyday for the various items they deal in. Orders are booked and invoices are generated daily at the company’s offices. The products are packed and dispatched via various transporters.
After the products are dispatched, information is received by the marketing / accounts office. The customers are then notified about the dispatch details. Also, as the products are sold on credit at times, it was a major challenge to keep the customers informed about the outstanding payments. Added to this, the information pertaining to the courier/ transporter needed to be provided to the customer.
The key business challenges faced by Pushbrite were
Sending accurate dispatch info to customers as soon as the material is dispatched.
Automated payment reminders to credit customers.
Information about new arrivals.
