Wholesale & distribution

Our worldwide experience of working with customers in the wholesale and distribution industry means we understand your challenges. To compete in a global marketplace, you need to build strong supplier and customer relationships. And the right SAP solutions, and innovations such as data synchronization and RFID, will enable you to meet your future challenges as you grow.

Boost your margin control

Complex financial processes and systems can affect every part of your organisation. For sales and marketing, this can lead to poor corporate financial consolidation, which makes it difficult to forecast sales and set budgets. Without the right margin controls, pricing is more complex. When you lack insight into customer and product profitability, it’s hard to select the right products or know which customers to target with promotions. With SAP solutions and our expertise, you can manage your sales channels more efficiently and streamline procurement. And we’ll help you eliminate manual, error-prone tasks, such as invoices, orders and receipts.

Supply chain visibility and control

In the wholesale and distribution industry, how you manage your network of suppliers and customers has a major impact on your costs. With the right SAP tools, you can gain more control over your logistical chain, from procurement through to contract management. For your inbound logistics, we can help you improve collaboration and co-ordination across your supply chain. Inventory management can improve visibility, which leads to fewer out-of-stock situations and wider access to stock levels from any location. For your outbound logistics, you can streamline your customer returns to reduce cost per transaction.

Analyse processes and performance

Your industry thrives on efficient processes and smart ways of working. We can tailor SAP tools, applications and services to help you improve your after sales service. For example, how you analyse returns and rebates. Then it becomes easier to promote incentives and plan for seasonal demand. When you standardise and integrate data in a single system, you can get a clearer picture of performance. And that includes your entire supply chain from vendors to warehouses and inventory management. As a result, it’s easier to automate processes and track your assets in the field.

Make decisions with data

One of the main causes of spiralling procurement costs is the inaccuracy of forecasts. This makes it difficult to plan ahead and increases the complexity of your inbound logistics. If there’s a lag caused by processing data in batches, it’s impossible to see what’s happening in the moment. And delays in gathering data have a negative impact on operational decision making. We’re experts in analytics and the latest SAP solutions, such as SAP HANA. These powerful analytical tools help you improve your service to customers and suppliers with real-time, actionable insights.
