SOPs help in developing sync between web stores, physical stores, mobile apps, logistics, customer retention, and vendor fulfillment. SOPs are a set of instructions which are documented and implemented in various functions like organizational structure, departmental structure, defining process owners and their KPIs and reporting structures which help in a more streamlined functioning of the organization.
