01 Increase average sale value by up-selling and cross-selling It is important to be able to spot opportunities where you can. Up-selling and cross-selling products to customers is an effective way of improving your margin. In-store sales staff or field sales reps can be prompted to up-sell and cross-sell based on customer type, linked products, technical information, promotional offers and discounts on multiple products. At any sale transaction, can you think of products you can up-sell to the customer and offer a richer version of the product they are buying? Can you think of products that you can cross-sell to the complimentary products? By doing this type of selling, you are creating awareness and familiarity with products, and enhancing the customer experience by engaging with their buying needs and creating a comfortable relationship with them, which leads to customer loyalty. Ordorite provides detailed customer history to show the products customers previously bought, so you can up-sell and cross-sell to the customer based on their individual buying habits. Ordorite also provides link purchasing reports so you can see just at a glance what products were sold together. customer to offer Average Sale Average Sale

The faster and more efficient you can deal with a customer transaction, to more time you have to build a relationship with that customer, effectively giving you more selling opportunities for your business, improving your overall margin. If you are finding yourself having to make several phone calls back and forth to your warehouse to see what items are in stock, your customer is standing there becoming disinterested and you are wasting valuable time for relationship building. Inputting the customer information at the time of sale transaction also wastes valuable customer relationship building. Having a system which makes your sales process more efficient gives you more time to focus on other things, improving your margin for the long term. Ordorite provides retailers with a management system which allows smooth sales transactions. Retailers have the ability to access live stock across all stores and warehouses, so they know exactly what stock they have and where it’s located. With its fast and efficient Point of Sale, retailers can record sales quickly to ensure they have more time to build the relationship with the customer, enhancing the overall customer experience. Inputting customer information can be made easier, with existing information already stored in the system for quick access. customers

Having schedule in place makes you more organised in your business, so you have a clear structure of when you are giving discounts, and not just giving them to customers at random. a quarterly promotions Ordorite offers retailers discounting reports so you can analyse your discounting habits and essentially stop sales staff from over discounting products, giving you more control over your business.
