Adapt to thrive in distribution

  • Savvy business leaders know it’s important to adapt new processes and technologies in order to meet marketplace changes and competitive challenges.
  • A 2015 Aberdeen report, “What Has Changed in Wholesale Distribution: 2015 & Beyond,” revealed that distribution market leaders invested twice as many resources in technology than their less-successful competitors. The report emphasized the need to change processes and invest in technology.
  • Forward thinking companies will leverage challenges to move ahead of the competition using wholesale distribution ERP software that provide visibility across the full scope of distribution business.

Optimize the supply side of distribution operations

Gain visibility to help you achieve high availability, optimize operations, and minimize inventory costs.:

  • Modern distribution business software provides accurate, company-wide inventory data that lets you create proactive, responsive replenishment operations and minimize inventory costs.
  • A truly automated and integrated distribution management software system delivers visibility and control of the entire supply-side cycle of requisition management, purchase order management, inventory tracking, warehouse management, and packing and shipping, removing the need to reenter and reorganize data between systems and reducing the risk of errors.
  • Distributors that are easy to do business with can build strong supplier relationships. When collaboration is built into the process, suppliers become trusted trading partners. Distributors who embrace collaboration and integration gain significant cost and service advantages.
