I already have an ERP, do I still need Orderstate?

Orderstate is a new type of software that is complementary to your existing back systems.
It is actually much better if you have one. We integrate with your systems and create a collaborative space to track and coordinate all your orders along with your suppliers, manufacturers, customers etc. While your system will have all the information on what is already handled by you, Orderstate will give you the information from the other involved parties that you need.

Does that mean that I need to manage another system? How does that make my life easier?

Orderstate offers 2-way communication with your existing systems. That means that once we are connected with your existing systems, any change that happens to one of the two systems will automatically reflect to the other.

Are you similar to Flexport?

No. Flexport is a freight forwarder who is digitally advanced. We enable freight forwarders and traders to become digital and faster.

Can I install Orderstate on my own servers?

Orderstate is a collaborative platform that lives on the cloud. We use cloud servers so that we provide ease of access across the globe. Having said that, we are careful so that:
  • We take security very seriously. We use the latest standards so that we prevent any unauthorized access to your systems
  • We don’t ask for very sensitive information. All your financial information remains in your system. We store information related to the shipping and collaboration part, which you would anyway distribute to your partners via email or other such formats.
