E-commerce has improved and advanced significantly over the past few years. Consumers are more comfortable with online shopping and placing orders online than ever before. Since they have order tracking, customers are now aware of shipping status and delivery times. Unlike walking into a physical location and walking out with products in hand, online shoppers must navigate online shopping carts. Ensuring your customers feel confident that their online orders will arrive on time and in good condition should be one of your top priorities. Expedient, on-time delivery in the e-commerce environment is essential to sustain businesses and promote future sales. When customers can count on you for fast delivery, you can build a solid following for your brand. Companies working towards establishing and growing their brands know you can’t beat repeat business. Repeat orders and referrals from your loyal customers foster long-term relationships and exponential growth.
Order tracking fosters transparency
Online order tracking keeps your customers involved in the shipping process, making it easier for them to know the status of their order without even having to contact a customer service member from your team. Sending shipping confirmation emails also gives customers the ability to track their order’s progress and allows the customer to plan for the arrival of their shipment. Being able to plan when the shipment will arrive facilitates the process for the customer so they can ensure someone is available to receive the order. Order tracking adds a layer of transparency and keeps customers in the know about their orders.
Reduce call volumes
With the power of order tracking at their fingertips, your customers no longer feel the need to contact your customer support representatives with order arrival inquiries. Order tracking minimizes your customers’ concerns and allows your customer service team to focus on customers with returns and exchanges in a timely manner.
Operating at optimal levels requires significant time and high labor overheads
Fulfillment services and inventory management requires a significant amount of time and money for most companies to achieve consistent on-time delivery standards.
