What is Order Entry?

Order entry is the actions needed to record a customer's order into a company's order handling system. Once this information has been entered, it is typically reclassified internally as a sales order. The information in the sales order is then used to schedule all of the activities needed to fulfill the customer's order, which may include materials procurement, production, warehousing, picking, shipment, and invoicing. The order entry function is usually the responsibility of the sales and marketing function. An order management system is a single unified platform that helps manage inventory, automate the order-to-cash cycle and facilitate better communication between teams. The platform automatically stores orders received, keeps a track of inventory levels and raises the required sales orders and a corresponding invoice of sale.
