The order tracking process may include tracking order receipt, order validation, order routing, order prioritization, preparation, shipping, and delivery as well as aspects related to payment processing. Common features of an order processing tracker include the ability to:

  • track the status of orders (received, in progress, shipped, delivered, and more)

  • assign orders to specific team members or departments

  • set and track due dates for orders

  • view and update customer information

  • generate and view detailed reports on order history, shipping and tracking information, and inventory levels

  • provide notifications for important events or changes in order status

  • integrate with other systems such as inventory management or shipping software

  • provide a dashboard for the overall order tracking and progress

Why build an order processing tracker?

Order processing trackers provide a centralized way to manage and track all aspects of order fulfilment, from the initial customer order to the final delivery.

  1. This improves multiple teams’ efficiency, reduces human error and helps in sales forecasting and production planning.

  2. With real-time data and insights, order processing trackers also help organizations reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction.

  3. Building a custom order processing tracker also helps you tailor it to your needs rather than trying to adapt to a pre-built solution. This can include integrating with existing systems, adding unique features or functionalities, or adapting the user interfaces to your liking.

  4. It also gives you more control over your data management, privacy and security needs.
