How Automation Simplifies Your In-House Warranty Processing

There are multiple challenges on the business front. One is minimizing expenses and maximizing resources for your business with great workflow efficiency. It is important to note that as manufacturers and service providers, you need to find an automation solution that helps you with warranty processes.

Only a few businesses know how beneficial automated warranty processing is unlike traditional warranty systems, which are inefficient because they need to be assembled and worked laboriously. A poor warranty management system will only cause costly maintenance and low performance. Moreover, these negative impacts will only stain your company's reputation.

Explore the following ways below to understand why automation can help you streamline your in-house warranty processing:

1. Customers Can Save Time

With automation, customers can save time and feel more in control. A self-service portal where customers can freely register products, file warranty claims, and check their claim status conveniently without much hassle would empower them to manage their warranties, lessening dependency on customer service and lowering operational costs.

Moreover, customers can easily create their profiles using third-party sites to start their warranty processes on your e-commerce site. This would be easier for them with just a few clicks away, and the customers would then get a quick result and experience smooth data flow.

2. Easy Tracking of Warranty Claims and Processes

Due to the outdated mechanism of your warranty management tool, you may have a hard time tracking warranty claims or retrieving bulky information. To solve this problem, Quantum ERP Solutions will organize and maintain a centralized database to store and explore warranty-related information such as warranty coverage details, expiration dates, or customer data.

  • The warranty claim as the custom solution of Epicor helps track items with serial numbers for parts tracking.
  • When parts are returned or exchanged in the RMA (Return Material Authorization) because of defects or because they were put back into stock after inspection. The warrant records hold the serial numbers and sub-serial numbers that are identified together with the unit once the 'job to manufacture' is generated.
  • When the unit is completed, the customer/distributor information and manufacturing date will be added to the warranty record.
  • If you want to find the Warranty Record, the user(s) will create a warranty claim form to create a new claim.
  • Management will approve or deny credit for the warranty claim by clicking the appropriate checkbox. No credit is issued to the customer when denied, and the credit number field will populate when approved.
  • The user(s) opens the AR Invoice Entry and checks the Group ID to confirm the Credit Number. The customer is then emailed a Credit Memo.

3. Ensures Data Accuracy and Avoids Fraud

One essential benefit of warranty automation is automated claim validation, which will streamline the validation processes and ensure the accuracy and legitimacy of the warrant claims. It will also diminish the time and effort wasted on manual review. With automation, you can guarantee increased accuracy and efficiency in warranty processes. Most importantly, it can enhance customer satisfaction by providing quicker and clearer solutions to claims.

4. Increases Employee Satisfaction

With the advent of technology, the modern work environment needs tools that engage and showcase various solutions to make it easier for users to manage, and good connectivity exists.
