If your business is using an existing Distribution Software Solution to control your order processing, inventory, warehousing and financials, you may be asking yourself whether you now need an end-to-end business solution that can grow and evolve, to support your growth ambitions. Distribution businesses reach a tipping point where the tools that supported their business are now hindering their ability to act with agility and insight.

The good news is, there’s never been a better time to replace an enterprise resource planning (ERP) or customer relationship management (CRM) solution. In our experience, the four core board-level benefits sought from a distribution software solution are:

Productivity: time-saving integration, with swift access to all business data – from a single solution

Financial Control: enabling cost control and smarter buying decisions – opportunities for growth and re-investment

Business Insight: built-in business intelligence and reporting features – that puts data into context, to make swift business decisions

Mobility: connected anytime, anywhere any device – with real-time reporting and collaboration tools


Today’s Distribution Challenges

The distribution industry is notoriously a difficult industry in which to remain competitive, particularly in the modern, globalised economy. Software such as Dynamics NAV, configured for distribution organisations, can be used to overcome common problems facing distribution businesses today.

Increasingly demanding customers requiring shorter lead times

Remaining competitive in a global industry

Decrease in the order to cash lifecycle

Lower profit margins and higher costs

Lack of visibility into your supply chain (the weakest link)

Poor order tracking and customer order management

Ability to identify emerging customer behaviour

Turning stock round quickly from order to dispatch

Lack of visibility to better manage relationships

No insight to negotiate better terms

Poor inventory controls – keeping your inventory lean / instantaneous stock reporting

No control of operational costs – poor buying decisions and increasing costs
