I’ll state the obvious — distributors have a tough job to do. Implementing wholesale distribution software can make the range of workflows that you deal with daily much simpler, so you can go from working extra hard to complete a smaller amount of tasks to automating functions and conducting more business than before. Sounds pretty great, right? It is. However, choosing the right solution and determining the functionality that you need out of your software program is key in order to actually reap the benefits associated with these systems.
In this article, we will take a look at the best wholesale distribution software on the market today, along with analyzing some of the common features and benefits of these solutions.
What Is Wholesale Distribution Software?
Wholesale distribution software is a solution that takes important business processes such as shipping, financial management, manufacturing, finance and CRM, and integrates them into a common package where data is shared. This allows for the automation of workflows and for operations to be conducted more quickly. For example, you might wish to set up automatic reordering from a specific vendor when inventory levels meet a certain threshold. By maintaining data from across the organization in a centralized location, materials could be reordered automatically, reducing required manual effort so employees can work on other tasks.
