Over the last 10 years, distributors’ most common business process challenges have largely remained the same, namely, improving order management, purchasing, and warehousing without having to increase headcount. Absent the right technology, many distributors leave money on the table through missed opportunities and reduce their margins through other avoidable errors. The overriding cause, in almost every case, is poor information quality and/or information islands that create a lack of access to the right information, delivered at the right time.
Listen to the replay from Tuesday, July 29th, and hear Stefan Hoffmann, Industry Solution Principal, educate attendees on the significant progress made in wholesale industry technology over the past decade. Today, SAP’s ERP software platform features a highly specialized wholesale industry focus at its core, with added functionality and tools as proof. In addition, itelligence has molded SAP’s tools further for distributors to provide additional flexibility, ease of use and optimization across business processes.
The webcast will cover how distributors can:
– Benefit from an integrated system that creates a single set of truths, in real time, with no second guessing
– Provide customers with a one-stop shop for detailed information to avoid annoying handoffs to multiple agents
– Empower multi-tasking sales/purchasing managers with the ability to more easily update master data and identify sales patterns, negotiate pricing more advantageously, and plan/forecast more strategically
– Equip customer service agents with centralized information regarding product pricing, availability, and out-of-stock options, without having to use multiple systems
