10 processes in a webshop that need an automation solution

Do you know how the weakest link rule works in business?

Often, an entrepreneur devotes a lot of time and effort to one part of the business, for example, investing in promotion, even though it is necessary to fine-tune a service/product or a sales system.

Or another option: you have come up with something unique, but without investing in advertising, there is little chance to start making money on it, and there are a lot of scammers waiting for an opportunity to easily copy and sell your product. That is why it is important to engage in the development and automation of all processes at the same time - it's like evenly tightening all the nuts on the wheels.

A business will not grow steadily if all efforts are directed to one component, for example, investing in an expensive website or purchasing exclusive goods. But what are the components of a webshop that can be easily automated and thus, start concentrating on the things that matter to you the most? Let’s find 10(!) of them together in our today’s article!

 

Here are the 10 processes that need an automation solution right now:

  1. Web scraping: Carrying out automation in this area of ​​tasks will significantly reduce time and labour costs. You no longer have to search for the necessary information, open dozens of websites, research and arrange product items in manual mode. This work can be transferred to an automation solution that will collect information and update prices.
  2. Paperwork: The operations’ stability of any company depends on the correct management of documents. Each operation of the webshop is accompanied by the execution of the appropriate papers: invoices, receipts, contracts, etc. It makes no sense to waste your time on this work when special solutions have been developed for it. Of course, if it becomes necessary to draw up an internal document that differs from templates, then such work will be done only manually. But afterwards, this too can be automated as well.
  3. Turnover of goods: Integration with the general automation solution helps to control the turnover of goods in your online shop. In this case, the program will record in one place all applications that were received through different communication channels (website, phone, email). Simply put, connecting the webshop automation solution will create a unified information base that collects data on the status and movement of the order, the method of delivery of the goods to the client, shipment, stock balances, information about the person responsible for specific orders, etc.
  4. Control of finances: Small business owners can do cash settlements without the use of automation. But the finances of large companies are more reliably controlled with the help of the special solution. This will help to avoid errors in the estimation process.
  5. Interaction with customers: This category is not always properly organized in webshops. Sometimes it all comes down to communicating within a single sale. Webshop automation will help build a system of long-term relationships with clients, transferring them from the category of one-time customers to permanent ones.
  6. Warehouse automation solution: Almost all large stores are equipped with inventory control systems that can see a barcode. Companies that were previously represented only in a brick and mortar format and used an autonomous warehouse accounting system, can automate that process after creating a webshop. If a trading company operates only in an online format, then you should set up the accounting system from the very beginning of its launch. This way you can control all the sales processes within the webshop.
  7. Obtaining price lists from suppliers: With a small assortment, this task is solved in manual mode, but large B2B eCommerce companies need to connect a program that automatically uploads and updates prices. A lot of mistakes can be avoided this way.
  8. Control over the work of employees: Today, employees are often transferred to a remote working option. Besides, the team can be a large one and can consist of branches and divisions located far from the main office. An automation solution allows any manager, CEO, CTO, or others to control the execution of tasks and deadlines, track working time, and manage all of the working processes.
  9. Pricing and invoicing: If the assortment includes thousands of items with different products, manual work will take a very long time. It is much more efficient to use special solutions that do it quickly, taking into account the specified margin and other parameters. When setting up an automation solution that generates invoices from an online store, you can create a template with a logo, insert a digital signature, enable the functions of sending invoices within a certain period of time, generate a lot of documents, etc.
  10. Creation of reports on inventory balances: Sometimes the supplier chain is built in such a way that a webshop doesn’t always need to maintain its own warehouse. Upon receipt of the order, the manager negotiates with the supplier to send the goods from their warehouse directly to the client. This process is called dropshipping. There are many advantages to this format, but consistency is required in obtaining information on warehouse balances. With the help of automation, this process can be well established.
