What is wholesale distribution software?

If you’re a small to midsized enterprise that’s quickly outpacing the capabilities of your accounting software and other inventory management applications, your business's growth will be restricted by the limitations of that software. Today, we’ll look at how these restrictions manifest in businesses, define distribution ERP software, and explain why it should replace your current system to overcome those limitations.

Growth Challenges?

Signs that your current system can’t keep up with your business growth include poor supply chain visibility, unexpected inventory stockouts, and tight cash flow. The most successful wholesale distribution companies overcome these hurdles by finding a way to run operations more efficiently. To achieve this, you need a single, transparent view of all your warehouse and distribution operations, helping you deliver goods on time, boost customer satisfaction, and optimize inventory.

What is Wholesale Distribution Software?

As a distributor, you may deal with big-box retail stores, online retailers such as Amazon, or have an eCommerce platform to sell directly to your customers. Once-complicated operations become simple with wholesale distribution software. Built on SAP ERP software for the midmarket, wholesale distribution software helps you communicate with customers and suppliers through electronic data transfer (EDI) and/or a fulfillment platform. This is where siloed programs like accounting software fall short, and where SAP Business One, an SAP distribution software for the midmarket, can help.
