Business-life inside a constantly evolving supply chain
Whether your customers are consumers, corner shop owners or major retailers, their expectations are growing – success in the wholesale & distribution sector depends on maintaining tight financial control and effective management over high volume/low margin operations. It is essential to identify and focus on the most profitable business and to optimise cash flow and debt.
On top of this, supply chains are constantly evolving and becoming more complex, leading to organisational processes and requirements also changing at increasingly rapid rates.
You need enhanced agility, collaboration, and the ability to respond effectively to changing market conditions, whilst driving up efficiency across your entire value chain – your core business solutions are central to this.
Intelligently managing your inventory
Every day, distributors have the challenge of balancing supply with demand. Affected by worldwide manufacturing activity, consumer demand, and competition – distributors must anticipate accurately or risk a warehouse full of excess inventory.
Tight margins and the high cost of excess inventory make cost control and efficiency critical, especially for small to mid-size distributors like you, that can’t afford to make mistakes.
Streamline and automate your entire, end-to-end warehousing process, from route planning for pick & pack to introducing automated inventory replenishment.
Improve efficiency and cut costs by freeing customer service agents to focus on high-value interactions and empower sales with automated product recommendations and buyer profiling.
