Companies in the distribution industry face a constant stream of challenges. Competition is being driven by both traditional players and new entrants, customers have higher expectations, and supply chain risk continues to increase. No matter your position in the industry—selling to consumers, selling to retailers, or selling to manufacturers—your very existence is based on delivering on your customer needs.
In this, companies like yours need to manage product flow and cash flow simultaneously if they hope to keep the lights on and the customers happy. This seamless experience, once considered a competitive advantage, is now table stakes—and it’s on you to ante up.
ERP Solutions for the Distribution Industry
Enterprise Resource Planning software was built for the needs of the product-based business and has facilitated processes for more than half a century. Though nearly every solution provider claims to offer some form of distribution functionality, not every product is created equal.
This is made even harder when each provider has partners with little to no experience working with wholesale distributors. With few things as critical to your business as ERP, you can’t afford to miss the mark on either.
At Kissinger Associates, we’ve worked with companies in the distribution industry since our founding and have continued to deliver modern, connected ERP solutions that give executives and end users the right information at the right time.
