The Right Software for Wholesale Distribution Businesses

As the leader of a wholesale distribution company, you are probably incredibly focused on growing your business. In order to increase profitability, your organization must create more opportunities and win new customers. Without an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system of accounting, customer relationship management (CRM) and inventory management, it can be difficult to obtain accurate insights into all areas of your business. When companies do not have all of the pertinent data in one business management software program, they cannot streamline their entire operation. In this environment, business owners find it difficult to make improvements to customer relationships, market their products and services more intelligently, and quickly react to changing market conditions. As a result, the overall customer satisfaction does not improve, potential revenue opportunities are not quickly identified, and, as a result, the business does not grow.

As a growing wholesale distributor with disparate software systems, you may be struggling to provide your customers with the right products and/or services, at the right price, at the right time. If you would like to achieve the operational excellence and levels of service that keep your customers coming back, utilizing an enterprise resource planning system can help you react quickly to changing market conditions so you can win new customers and develop new opportunities with existing clients
With SAP’s integrated accounting, CRM, and inventory solutions for wholesale distribution, SAP Business One, you can streamline your whole operation from one completely unified platform. You can realize savings in key areas, and offer customers faster, more accurate processing and deliveries. Further, with real-time view of your whole business, you can react to changing demands quickly and efficiently, as well as easily transfer information to agents in the field.
