We know the importance of having all your orders in time or know at the earliest what is going wrong and how this will affect your project. The costs of stopping the construction even for a day or holding your orders in ports and not be able to do the clearance are enormous, with significant side effects.
Using Orderstate, your ordering process can achieve the visibility, agility and reaction for any situation.
In a normal of a construction order scenario, you need to align many suppliers, with different orders to have a smooth on-site operation.
Let’s see below a simple example of how it looks:
In order to complete a project, you need 3 different products through different suppliers and the estimated receipt on-site should be aligned in order to start the construction process.
1️⃣ The first order goes as the initial schedule and the product shipped and are on the way.
2️⃣ The second one though, has arrived at the port but cannot do the custom clearance due to missing documents.
3️⃣ The third order missed the cut off date of the port and need to take the next vessel which will be at least 10 days later.
This is an average order process and obstacles that could happen at any point.
In Orderstate, you can follow the orders and predict this issue well in advance, so you can be notified early and react accordingly.
Solving the problem of the right documentation, your supplier or the responsible colleague will know from the beginning which documents needed and of course you will get a notification, before the vessel arrival, if anything isn’t in place.
Tackling the problem of losing the cut off, you will get a notification before the booking date and you ll know at least 5 days before that you have missed the vessel. This gives you plenty of time to find alternatives and include a close truck transportation to the nearest port and be able to catch the final receipt date.
By using Orderstate you achieve:
- Increased revenue and productivity due to minimized missed deadlines
- Reduced operation costs as less manual effort is required to track processes
- Better visibility through a single source of truth and management dashboard
- Data-driven decisions and what-if scenarios to plan better
