What Makes a Modern Distribution Management System? [Checklist]
When it comes to running a distribution business, you operate in a perpetual state of motion. Product comes in, product goes out; money comes in, money goes out. As your business grows, the number of transactions grows as well—more customers, more suppliers, and more pressure on your business.
How Much Longer Can Your Current Systems and Processes Hold Up?
Knowing this, you’re still expected to keep delivering on the same promises in speed and reliability that you made when you were half the size. In fact, you may be expected to do more.
The question—is it possible with your current technologies and processes?
It’s often at this stage of growth that distributors begin to consider what options they have to speed up their operations, increase accuracy, and maintain visibility into inventory, cash flow, orders, and more. You may initially look at small fixes and improvements, but often come to the realization that you need a true business management system that can handle the needs of the growing distribution firm.
But what—exactly—does that mean? Who are the key players, what do they offer, and how can you make an informed decision?
