New features: You can now search and order based on location

We are delighted to announce the release of new features added to our MyOrder Beta platform. Search and locations feature.

Based on our users feedback so far, it is important to allow them to easily search for a product before anything. Most important, view if there are registered and verified shops on MyOrder that are based in their nearest location/vicinity.

Right now, you can be able to search for a product and MyOrder will query from the existing shop menus we have and give you results to help you make the right choice. You can further narrow down the shops to their location.

We listened to your feedback and we hope to make our platform more valuable based on your feedback as a user. Keep them coming, as we appreciate your feedback on how we can always make Myorder better. In the coming days we will announce new features by keeping you posted on our blog.

Check out the new features from the mobile platform and place your order in a shop located near you ! For queries/feedback and to get started, contact us at: info@myorder.co.ke

SMS ordering: Strengthening distributors and retailers relationships

sms-ordering_revised
According to the CCK Kenya latest report (2012), there are 27 million mobile subscribers, SMS per subscribers per month growing by 125% from 8.5 SMS as at June 2011 to 18.99 SMS at September 2011. Weza Tele has tapped into this market by developing an SMS-based ordering service for its clients that they are currently working with in the industries of fast moving consumer goods e.g.publications, beverages, Gas, Grocery & food stores as they try to reach their vendors and end-users with an easier way for them to order from their simple phones.
Its  easy to use and integrate into your current sales process. The service consists of 3 simple steps:

1. Register
2. Order your items
3. Orders confirmed

How does the SMS ordering service work?

For Distributors:
At the heart of the software is a simple and well-designed dashboard. This enables you, as a seller,  to manage customer information, orders, prices, products, reports and recipients with control rights.

You can also periodically receive orders by email, formatted as Excel spreadsheet with customizable fields you would want to see.

For retailers:

The system enables registered retailers to send in orders in a simple and memorable format.  This works from a basic phone with no need for an Internet connection. Every item on a catalogue a code is assigned that further simplifies the ordering process. We translate the codes, calculate the total price, and send you a electronic confirmation with your order details & prices.

Our software also has built in error correction mechanisms. For instance, if you incorrectly type in your order information, then the system is able to automatically correct that and figure out what you meant to type. It then sends you an sms confirmation before your order is further processed.

Benefits:

  • Ease of use — No special equipment needed hence more flexibility when ordering. Works with any mobile telephone that can send Text messages (SMS) or email.
  • Fast — simplifies the process for both customer and retailer, as the customer avoids the likelihood of being held in a phone queue and the retailer gets structured, aggregated orders from time to time.
  • Low Cost — Affordable operational costs. Free registration.
  • Convenience – Buyers send from their mobile phones and receive SMS notifications to confirm orders.
  • Seamless integrations- with SAP, Open ERP, Quick books, multiple languages and payments

“Simplicity is key!”

There is no hardware or software to install so that in a matter of minutes its up and running.
