Wholesalers and distributors need to keep track of a large amount of frequently updating data as well accurate planning that will keep the organization running on-schedule without increased costs. This is becoming exponentially difficult in today’s environment as organizations take orders from an increasing amount of channels (online, in store, call center, etc.) and deliver those orders through multiple third parties. In other words, wholesalers and distributors must accurately predict demand and provide products to customers when they need them at a low price, no matter how the order is taken or delivered. As a result, the majority of wholesalers and distributors rely on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) as a hub for customer information and inventory management. But ERP is much more than that. ERP is the operational and transactional system of record upon which a business is based.
