What is process automation?
When optimizing workflows within your organization, process automation is key. Process automation is the technology-enabled automation of your company's processes, which enables you to streamline your business and increase efficiency, quality and ROI.
What are the benefits of process automation in B2B ecommerce?
Automating as many parts of your processes as possible can significantly improve the quality of your product information across all your selling platforms and channels. Automation enables you to keep product data up to date, unify product variety information, share photos and videos and ensure all your products conform to the regulatory requirements of the different geographical areas you sell in.
Efficiency: Cut down on time, money and effort for your team by automating your processes and allowing your team to focus more time on other work responsibilities. Automating with PIM allows your team to focus manpower and creative energy on other projects to develop and grow the business further.
Reliability: Automated product data enables you to remove the ever-present risk of natural human errors. Sales Layer detects errors, inconsistencies and omissions in your product data across your entire workflow, and ensures corrections are distributed across all channels.
Transparency: Automating your processes for your logistics information management and creating one single source-of-truth for your team enables everyone to see correct, up-to-date information without the risk of multiple versions of documents communicating incorrect or outdated information both internally and externally.
