Industry Order Management Solutions
Bring order out of chaos and shed light on hidden information.
Lightwell brings industry expertise to help you optimize order and fulfillment experiences
You go to extraordinary lengths to transform prospects into purchasers.
Your salespeople work hard to transform cold calls into contracts. Your company invests in raw materials, inventory, call centers, distribution facilities, retail outlets, web sites…the list goes on and on.
So, when you finally convinced your target customers to select your product and place an order, that order needs to be properly, efficiently managed and fulfilled. It needs to be absolutely perfect.
But sometimes, the finalization of a sale requires extra attention.
Maybe the customer needs more information about the product or service. Perhaps they want to buy online and pick up in-store. Perhaps they’re selecting a lot of different available options and need instantaneous pricing. There are many moving parts involved in the transaction, which means there are many opportunities for the process to suddenly go south.
To maintain solid relationships, satisfy restless customers, and succeed in a highly competitive market, you’ve got to remain vigilant, responsive, and transparent. You must provide the capabilities they want, deliver flawless orders, while protecting your profitability.
We’re here to help. Through our team’s expertise and the industry-leading IBM order management and fulfillment solutions, we can help you accomplish all of this and more.

Each industry has its unique challenges.
We have our own unique approach to resolving them.
Depending upon your industry, you may face unique challenges, need to follow different
processes, adhere to specific regulations, or address other specialized needs. That’s why
we tailor our solutions to specific industries.
Customers demand a flawless omnichannel experience. Delivering this is only possible when your customers, in-store associates, and customer service reps have accurate, real-time visibility into orders. You can achieve this goal through the integration of legacy systems, the elimination of data silos, easy access to global data, and intuitive dashboards that facilitate analysis and action.
We can help you enable omnichannel capabilities that give customers insight into all available inventory, provides choices in fulfillment and returns, and enables quick make-to-order pricing. And we can help you empower your staff to improve customer relationships and perform their jobs more efficiently and profitably.
To maintain success in conducting business with retailers, wholesalers, distributors, and direct consumer customers, you have three important goals:
- Make your company easier to do business with.
- Reduce the cost of providing accurate pricing, configuration, and delivery promising.
- Enable your business staff to manage the entire order-to-cash process better.
But this is difficult when you’re dealing with different business units, silos, disparate systems, and geographic considerations. It’s made even more complicated by the complexity of individual orders that may require many different products delivered to different locations, various pricing and promotional models, and other factors that play into B2B relationships.
Many CPG companies work in a consignment model with retailers, so they need visibility of inventory both in their own facilities and in the retail stores. The high volume of transactions also presents a visibility challenge. Order management systems with inventory visibility enable suppliers to predict and respond to demand.
Our order management and fulfillment solutions help CPG companies overcome these challenges and more.

you can’t sell what you can’t see.
