A Deeper Dive
Constructing a durable and profitable wholesale distribution business is difficult - particularly without connected and intelligent solutions to make it happen. The correct Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software connects people, processes, and technologies throughout your distribution chain to facilitate everything from finances to inventory to customer relations.
1: Solving Inventory
With Acumatica, businesses can track inventory levels in real-time, manage multiple warehouses, and set up automated reordering to ensure they always have the right amount of stock on hand. Additionally, Acumatica provides tools for managing warehouse operations, such as receiving and putaway, picking and packing, and shipping and delivery.
One of the key benefits of Acumatica's warehouse and fulfillment capabilities is that businesses can track inventory levels across multiple locations, which is particularly important for businesses with complex supply chains. This allows businesses to optimize their inventory levels and reduce the risk of stockouts or overstocking.
Acumatica also provides businesses with tools for managing fulfillment operations, such as order processing, order tracking, and shipping label generation. With these capabilities, businesses can manage their entire fulfillment process, from order receipt to final delivery, all within the same platform.
2: Purchase Order Management
Acumatica's purchase order system can help you cut costs and strengthen your relationships with vendors by automating and controlling your worldwide purchasing processes.
Acumatica's online buying system automates the procurement process from obtaining vendor quotations to paying invoices.
You can also simplify transactions between different companies by automatically creating a sales order in one company from a purchase order in another company within the same tenant.
3: Sales Order Management
Improve customer service by providing sales and service personnel with real-time data using order management software. Utilize artificial intelligence and machine learning to increase sales with item substitution, up-sell, and cross-sell suggestions.
Acumatica Sales Order Management makes it easy to assign inventory to customer orders, keep track of vendor drop-shipments, handle customer returns, and customize workflow and approval procedures. You can make order scheduling simpler by using blanket sales orders and streamline transactions between two companies in the same tenant by automatically creating a sales order in one company when a purchase order is made in the other.
