The Order Workflow
The 876get order workflow will simplify the ordering process and integrate fast, efficient delivery for your business. See the steps below.
1.- Customer creates the order using the 876get Website or the 876get App.
The process when using the 876get Website or Apps is very simple, the customers put their address, select a restaurant/store from the list that the 876get Administrator has set up, select the product or services available and finish the purchase.
2.- Business Owner is informed.
Once the order is made by the customer, the business owner gets informed about it in several ways, he can get a push notification on their Business App, an Email in their Inbox and also a non-stop ringing pop up inside the Orders Manager in the 876get Editor (web).
3.- Business Owner Accepts or Rejects the Order.
After the order is received, the business owner (or representative in charge of orders) has to accept or reject the order before continuing the process. He can do this from the Business App or change the status of the order from the 876get Editor inside each order.
4.- The customer is informed via push notification and email.
All the products in 876get are fully synchronized , meaning that when any status is changed on the ordering products every party involved in the order will get informed, it can be via push notification, mailing, or the message feature inside each order.
This way we make sure there is no confusion in the ordering process
5.- Assigning a Driver to an Order.
Once the order is accepted by the business owner, he has the chance to assign a Driver to the order (customer receives a push notification with the assigned driver).
To assign a driver the Business App gives the option after you accept the order, in the 876get Editor there is an option where you can see the list of drivers, select one and the driver will get the push notification of a new order assigned.
6.- Driver Pick up and Delivery timing.
When the driver accepts the order, he has to set up how long it is going to take for picking up in the store/restaurant, and how long it is going to take for delivery to the customer, this information will show inside the messages feature as a historical on each order.
When the driver opens the order he will see the location for pick up and delivery, order details, routing and even if needed, he can add some more documentation such as; notes, photos, and signatures.
7.- Client & Business get informed about this status change.
The customer and the business owner are informed about every status change that the order is getting, for example, if the driver is picking the order up, they will be informed, until the order is delivered.
8.- Order Delivered and Completed.
When the driver arrives at the customer location and sets “Delivery Completed”, the customer and business owner gets a push notification and email of this change immediately.
Now the Order is finished, the customer is enjoying the order, the driver delivered the order and business made a sale.
