What is Order Automation?

Orders are sent between Buyers and Suppliers, instantaneously delivered and entered into the Suppliers Accounting Package or ERP System.

For many companies who have looked at eCommerce or EDI solutions to improve their order processing capability, the result is often incomplete and below expectations associated to initial investment.

The reality:

Ecommerce adoption of order placement in most Business to Business environments is between 4-10%.

EDI is expensive to deploy, difficult to configure and often only useful for certain types of orders due to business logic challenges between both the Buyer and Supplier.
