Five Ways Document Management Improves the Shipping Process

Moving your products out the door requires more than a simple shipping label. The highly competitive global market has brought about increasingly diverse challenges, and regulations surrounding both domestic and international shipping adds another layer of responsibility. In addition to these difficulties, today's customer expects fast turn-around times, 100% accuracy, and no-hassle return processes.

We may be understating the case, but if your business hopes to succeed in this challenging and competitive environment, there is simply no room for error. Fortunately, Document Management provides a solution to reduce and meet the demands created by shipping pain points, plus a lot more.

Why You Should Use Document Management

Paper-based customer documentation processes may have worked in the 1970s (was there another option?), but not today. For any business hoping to expand beyond a localized customer base, a digitized Document Management strategy is crucial. Here are just a few of the demands facing today's global marketplace:

  1. Rising labor costs can significantly add to the price of your product. Document Management automates the paperwork required to ship products, allowing businesses to keep prices competitive.
  2. Missing or incomplete paperwork can cause unacceptable delays in shipping. Document Management automates the entire process, making these types of errors virtually impossible.
  3. In the event of product delivery problems (carrier error, weather-related incidents, etc.), Document Management provides an archived record of the entire process.
  4. Global shipping places new burdens on businesses, including stricter regulations for monitoring international shipments. Document Management automates the process to avoid costly customs delays.
  5. Today's customers expect fast responses and even faster resolutions when problems arise. Document Management puts all of the required information at your fingertips.
