How Can You Personally Visit Every Customer?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could visit every customer? Then you could check out stocking levels, competitors products, cleanliness of your customer’s store. Or perhaps you want to report on equipment service either internally or to your customer.

Of course, you cannot. But, you do have a sales force and they can collect information.

With Solid Survey™, these questions are easily asked, easily reported (either to you or to your customer, or both), and better yet, easily tracked for future reference. Further, you can easily customize your own question set. And you can add a picture to the questionnaire. Solid Survey™ allows you to do all of this and more.

Now you can easily move your business beyond sales to a new level. And, you can do it easily. To get started with Solid Survey™ call support or check out this Solid Know How™ article:

Are all your customers being visited every single sales period?

Verify customer visits by requiring No-Sale Transactions. Solid Route Accounting™ offers ways to control customer routes, as well as the order of customer visitation. If there is a need to confirm that customers who have purchased no items were visited, this can best be accomplished by way of creating a ‘No Sale’ transaction.

Consumer vs. Enterprise Grade Mobiles

When it comes to POS applications in the field, enterprises typically had to choose between specialized rugged enterprise grade mobiles (which will last longer but are more expensive) and consumer grade mobile tablets or phones (which are cheaper but may have high replacement rates).

Solid Route Accounting™ runs on both enterprise and consumer grade devices. Enterprise grade device has the additional advantage in that the manufacturer carefully controls the operating system to ensure reliable operation, and they often have a built-in barcode scanner. Solid has tested and approved several enterprise-grade devices for use with Solid Route Accounting™.

Inventory Counting Made Easy

Let's face it, inventory is money waiting to be sold to customers, yet all too easily it can disappear at your expense. Commonly, thousands of dollars are written off with no understanding of what happened. But, how do distributors keep an accurate track of their inventory without halting business operations? Especially when your SKUs are in the 100s or even 1000s. The answer lies in inventory counting.

For distributors, stopping business operations - even for a day - can be a large expense. Inventory counting allows you to count smaller portions of your inventory on a regular basis. Daily or weekly inventory counts ensure that each item of inventory is counted and tracked in a timely manner.

Solid Route Accounting™, with its simple, accurate approach to inventory counting makes this easy. See our complete Solid Know How™ https://www.solid-innovation.com/kb/questions/319/

Do You Need to Finalize & Track Customer Orders?

Delivery Confirmation allows Customer Orders, saved within the system (i.e.: on another mobile, on this mobile, or in the accounting system) to be assigned to a Mobile Unit for delivery and finalization as an Invoice. During the finalization process, items can be added, deleted, changed, including prices (depending on security settings) to the Customer Order. In addition, sales reps can obtain customer signatures, print invoices, record location, attach pictures, or conduct a custom survey.

By using Delivery Confirmation, when the route salesperson delivers the product, they are finalizing the original Customer Order as an Invoice. This prevents data entry mistakes and speeds up the delivery processes.
