Today’s Distribution Sector Challenges

The distribution industry is a notoriously difficult industry in which to remain competitive, particularly in the modern, globalised, digital economy. Software such as Dynamics 365 Business Central (previously Dynamics NAV), customised for the specific needs of distribution organisations, can be used to overcome common problems facing distributors today.

Increasingly shorter request times from customers
Staying ahead of global competition
Reduction of order to cash cycles
Lower profit margins and higher costs
Need to spot new customer trends
Turning stock round quickly from order to dispatch
Poor relationships due to lack of visibility
Lack of clarity over supply-chain (the weakest link)
Poor customer order management and order tracking
No insight to negotiate better terms
Keeping inventory lean / instantaneous stock reporting
Financial control – poor buying decisions and increasing costs
