An order management system is a central hub that tracks sales, orders, inventory, and fulfillment. It's used to manage the process for products to find their way to the customers who bought them.
For order management to run smoothly, it requires a system that covers all the aspects of e-commerce:
At the heart of any e-commerce business are two things: selling products and delivering them to the customer. As soon as a customer clicks purchase, business needs to move fast.
That’s where your order management system comes in. Traditionally, order management systems are designed for the larger scale, less dynamic of companies. The user experience is often, for lack of a better word, rubbish.
”When ideas for new features to myOGO pop up, they always have to pass this question: how does this particular feature make our customers’ daily routines easier?”

E-commerce Order Management should be user-friendly, intuitive and easy to use. It's no use getting a system to help save time and reduce manual tasks if the time is then spent on learning how to use the system.
The features should be focused helping you increase your store’s profitability — through shipments, sales, and optimizing inventory so you can get the goods off the shelves and to your customers as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Maybe you want to set up an alarm to let you know when you need to restock, or maybe you need a full history of your activities to make smarter decisions. Or, perhaps you want to store your goods in multiple warehouses for speedy delivery while still managing everything from the same bird's eye view. Either way, it’s important that order management isn’t slowing you down.
When choosing the order management system that’s right for you, make sure to find out what kind of integrations they provide. Is the OMS easy to integrate with your e-commerce platform? Is it easy to do by yourself, or does the integration need to be carried out by a dedicated developer? Do the integrations have extra costs?
If using an order management tool requires a lot of expertise or you need to hire a developer to plug it in, it tends to limit your options. What if you decide to switch to a different e-commerce platform? Does the integration need to be built again from scratch?
If the Order Management System doesn't have enough e-commerce-related features, you might need multiple systems to manage everything from A to O. For example, does it keep track of EN codes, or do you need another system to do that?
To be able to scale your online store, you need a solid foundation. You need flexibility, scalability, and efficiency. OGOship's Order Management System, myOGO, has been designed to fulfill the needs of a growing e-commerce business.
