The reality of modern business is that speed matters. A lot. Everyone — consumers, retailers, suppliers — want things faster than ever before. The on-demand economy isn’t limited to Netflix or ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft — every business must be able to get things out in a hurry. Automating as much of your business as possible lets you meet the needs of your customers while freeing you up to focus on expanding your business.
Of course, the pace in retail has always been quick. Consumer tastes change overnight and technology has ushered in an era unlike any other, where shoppers can scan reviews and compare prices from online and brick-and-mortar outlets. It’s not only the 855 that needs to be fast — all your order transactions put a premium on speed. That’s why we build so much into Lingo to reduce manual entry, merge data and information from ERPs and other back-end systems, and process multiple orders in batch. Now, more than ever, time really is money.
