In this blog, we’ll discuss the challenges that are faced by dairy businesses without milk subscription software.
Top 6 Challenges in the milk subscription business
Managing subscriptions- A subscription model is where the customers place orders for recurring services for a specific period of time. Managing new subscription orders, modified subscription order, and paused subscription manually is prone to human error and result in wrong and delayed deliveries.
Hassle-in-order placement- Customers place orders via phone calls or whatsapp. As the number of customers and orders increases, it becomes difficult to manage all the orders. This can result in missing out on orders or wrong data entry on the system.
Managing customer queries- With a growing business, the number of customers increases, and so do the queries. Managing customer queries or resolving customer disputes individually might not be feasible for the business. This might require them to hire extra staff and add additional costs to the business operations.
Chances of human errors- Every dairy business operation being manually managed might increase the risk of errors. As the orders are placed and modified manually, there might be a lack of clear communication which can result in wrong order entry. Errors in the data entry can result in wrong and delayed deliveries and customer disputes.
Managing inventory- Inventory management is one of the crucial parts of any business that ensures successful order fulfilment. Manual inventory management is tedious and time-consuming. Any error in the inventory report can lead to insufficient stock or excess stock.
Managing deliveries- Manual dispatching, scheduling and delivery management is a time-consuming process and have chances of miscommunication between the delivery person and the business. This can reduce the efficiency of the business and drastically impact the delivery process.
