Need for Automation:

In my role within the Customer Support department, I consistently find myself managing a diverse range of Stock Status information for Sales Reps, encompassing critical details such as backorders, available quantities, order quantities, and other relevant metrics across various warehouse/plants. This multifaceted task consumes approximately 2 hours of man-hour weekly. Recognizing the pressing need for efficiency, my goal is to automate this comprehensive process, optimizing not only my time but also ensuring that Sales Reps receive a swift and accurate overview of the stock situation.

Additionally, I am entrusted with the responsibility of consolidating extensive data from multiple files, each containing a wealth of post-production details. Currently occupying an extra hour each week, the automation of this data consolidation process would liberate valuable time, enabling me to focus more effectively on other critical aspects of my responsibilities.
