Different members of the supply chain, from suppliers and distributors to manufacturers, use advance shipping notices (ASNs) to share detailed information about shipments. These notices help companies better manage inventory, make budgetary decisions and gain real-time visibility into product movement. They're simple to use and have a lot to offer, especially if you're looking to automate and simplify your processes. Let's take a closer look at what an ASN is in shipping and how it can help your operation.
In today's shopping landscape, consumers have a wealth of options, from where they buy a product to when they get it to how they contact customer service. The businesses that stand out are the ones that have thrived in omnichannel environments. These companies understand their varied markets and have strong digital solutions in place to automate and manage the different data sources involved.
When you think of business automation, you might think of machinery. But automation encompasses a wide range of easy-to-implement digital tools and platforms that can significantly streamline and improve various business processes, particularly tedious tasks like data entry and verification. If you haven't made the move to automation, you could be hurting your company more than you realize. Manual processes have become a hindrance, putting those who use them further behind their competitors and limiting their ability to create valuable, efficient workflows.
After scouring the internet, a shopper has finally decided to buy a product that fits their needs. Shortly after placing their order, they receive a notification that the order cannot be fulfilled and has been canceled. They've become a victim of overselling.

It's inefficient and costly for your business as a whole.
