As a wholesale distributor, you know your industry is changing to deal with the “on-demand economy”.
You are facing a myriad of day-to-day challenges, including:
- Warehouse Management — you need real-time data that shows inventory levels across branches and continents providing a singular view of your business so that you can make your business and warehouses as efficient as possible
- Communication Breakdowns — you need to keep everyone connected across branches, time zones, and currencies and achieving this with a variety of systems isn’t easy
- Tight Margins — profit margins are slim, but customers still expect volume discounts and promotions
- Employee Resistance — learning an entirely new system can be daunting to employees
- Delayed Workflows — selling through multiple channels may cause delays if workflows aren’t in sync
- Lack of Mobility — employees need system access 24/7 from anywhere
- No Money for IT — replacing outdated technologies and maintaining full-time IT staff is expensive
A complete wholesale distribution solution should also include:
A well-designed, customized enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can alleviate well-known pain points for whole distribution — shifting customer demand, slim margins, and increased product and operational costs — making the distribution process more efficient.
This is where SWK Technologies can help.
