Streamlining B2B Order Processing: Commerce Vision Solutions Suite for FMCG Businesses


In the fast-paced world of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) businesses, efficient order processing is crucial for maintaining a competitive edge.

While Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solutions have traditionally been the go-to for B2B transactions, modern FMCG companies are seeking flexible alternatives that align with their dynamic operational needs.

Commerce Vision (CV) offers a suite of innovative products designed specifically to address these challenges, providing FMCG businesses with non-EDI solutions that streamline B2B order processing. Let's delve into how CVe, Lucy, and Opmetrix serve as ideal solutions for FMCG companies in need of efficient order processing.


CVe Bringing Ecommerce into the Forefront

Lucy Automating Round-the-Clock Inbound Sales Orders

Lucy represents the next evolution in order processing automation for FMCG businesses when it comes to inbound PDF email orders.  

As an intelligent order management system, Lucy leverages advanced algorithms and machine learning capabilities to optimise order fulfilment processes. One of Lucy's key features is its ability to analyse historical order data and predict future demand trends, enabling FMCG companies to proactively manage inventory levels and prevent stockouts. 

Moreover, Lucy integrates seamlessly with existing ERP systems, eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing processing times. For FMCG businesses dealing with a vast array of products and SKUs, Lucy offers unparalleled scalability, allowing them to handle high order volumes without compromising efficiency. By automating repetitive tasks and streamlining order workflows, Lucy empowers FMCG businesses to focus on strategic initiatives and customer satisfaction.

With its offline functionality, Opmetrix helps sales representatives capture orders and collect customer data even in areas with limited connectivity. This flexibility is particularly valuable for FMCG businesses operating in remote or rural regions., Opmetrix also offers robust reporting and analytics capabilities, allowing sales managers to gain valuable insights into sales performance and market trends.

"Sales automation is important in the manufacturing and distribution part of the B2B eCommerce sphere. Because you've got three types of customers that exist in that manufacturing and distribution environment. And I guess you could break them into small, medium, and large."
