Product Returns Tracking System
The database DMW created for its client records damaged, faulty and incorrectly ordered or dispatched goods returned by customers.
Tracking applies to write-offs, returns to stock and replacement goods.
The system maintains a complete history of communications with customers and with the shipping agents and produces returns notes and other standard documents that form part of the returns process.
Analysis of patterns of returns highlights possible manufacturing problems and impact on stock levels, and analysis of shipping agents' and carriers' performance extends the monitoring process. Periodic reports provide operational and financial information.
