By Jennifer Rosvally on 7/10/18 10:14 AM

A major benefit of using an ERP solution in a modern business is that you can manage many core business areas with just one system. Financials, inventory management, purchasing management, and sales management are tied together allowing you maximum insight and control over operations. Keeping functions separate can cause a disconnect between departments, increasing the likelihood of data errors, duplication of functions or records, lack of visibility into the business as a whole, and overlooked opportunities for sales.

Redefining Customer Experience with an Integrated ERP

By Jennifer Rosvally on 6/1/17 2:07 PM

As distributors know, staying top-of-mind with your customers is critically important for customer retention and for generating necessary word-of-mouth recommendations. Your customers play a much needed role in advocating your message, strength and loyalty. As a result, we are seeing a trend in newly created Customer Experience (CX) teams to help deliver guided client journeys managed with the thoughtful experience they deserve.  Growing popularity in account-based marketing efforts and "white-glove" service is the new expectation, setting wholesale distributors apart from digital disruptions and competitors alike.

The challenge is for distributors to tap into their ERP systems and harness the customer insight they could have available.  This "all-access" look at buying habits, profiles and customer trends shapes conversations that drive customer engagement. The beauty of this combination in an ERP software is that each and every person using the system is just as knowledgeable as the other -- turning purchase managers into inventory control experts and service staff into customer engagement specialists.

Be the Future of Warehouse Processes with Data Managing ERP Software

By Lauren Verner on 5/10/16 12:30 PM

A theme that continues to repeat in distribution and supply magazines refers to the need for distributors to embrace technology to simplify warehouse and business processes. The costs of not taking advantage of the capabilities available now and in the future are starting to add up.  If competitors are taking advantage of increased productivity, reduced process costs, improved control and better accuracy alongside real-time data, a distributor without an ERP system can be left behind before they realize it.

In Industrial Supply Magazine’s most recent issue, Howard Coleman emphasizes this need with his article, ‘The Future of DCs and Warehouses’. “Time after time, we see the need for better enterprise software and analytics utilization to support warehouse management.” states Coleman.
