About Inventory and Order Management

Sales representatives, presales representatives, and delivery representatives are often responsible for capturing orders, invoicing, and collecting payments. In addition to these primary sales responsibilities, they may also collect payment for outstanding billings, exchange products with other delivery representatives, and deposit payments at the local bank. These activities are all part of the inventory and order management process.

The activities associated with inventory and order management can be seen in Figure 2.
