Wholesale Distributors Can Benefit From a Holistic Approach to Business

In this day and age, there are some things in business that are certain. For instance, the economy is complex and volatile. Further, customers can be extremely demanding. As a result, many leaders of distribution businesses wonder, how can my  company not only survive, but also thrive? With the right software, thriving in this economy can be easier than you may think. With SAP’s enterprise software for wholesale distribution, SAP Business One (also known as SAP B1 and Business One) you have the tools necessary to get closer to your business partners, deliver exceptional service, and carve out a value-added and differentiated role in the supply chain.

Wholesale distribution businesses have unique challenges including:

  • The need to reduce operational costs without negatively affecting customer service and satisfaction.
  • Balancing inventory on hand with variable costs and availability to impact profitability.
  • Managing a complex global network of suppliers, warehouses, and customer locations.
  • Developing an optimal product mix that leads to successful forecasting and planning, combined with excellent service
  • Managing a complex vendor cost recovery that can be expensive and slow resulting in money left on the table.

Yet, where there are challenges, there are also opportunities. Take a holistic approach to your business and:

  •  Streamline, automate and integrate the Opportunity-to-Cash process to drive revenue growth
  • Collaborate with your supply network not only operationally, but also strategically to drive competitive differentiation and reduce operating costs.
  • Establish flexible capacities in fulfillment to optimize inventory
  • Gaining full visibility into cost recovery, procurement spending, supplier performance and cost-to-serve to increase cash flow.

Save time and money by incurring fewer expenses and running things quicker. By managing everything through one system, there’s only one system to implement, pay for, and maintain. And with all data managed on one integrated platform, you can see how all areas of the business are running, and react faster.
