Solutions for Increasing Profit & Inventory Velocity
We focus on business impact.
Running a distribution business is no easy task. You deal with a continual list of challenges. Things like new competition, supplier issues, predicting inventory needs, rising customer expectations, getting the job done with a remote workforce, and more. You also know there are some key areas to focus on because they are critical for on-going business growth and success. We help our customers achieve critical business area impact by implementing solutions that provide visibility across the organization, access to business data in one place, and thorough business intelligence and data analytics for informed decision-making.
We consult to help you drive growth.
Everything a business does relates back to profitability in one way or another. It’s the mother of all metrics and drives improvements in sales performance, customer retention, cost control, inventory optimization, order management, supply chain management, workforce productivity, and more.
Reviewing trends in profitability (company-wide, by profit center, product line, or individual product–as well as in comparison to industry benchmarks) can help your distribution company understand the big picture in terms of business health. Comprehensive dashboards and performance reporting provide visibility and the ability to drill-down into the details you need.
How do your results compare with others in your industry? Is profitability increasing over time? What are the internal trends? Do you have product lines that are lagging behind? Is there too much inventory on hand? Are there product lines that are growing significantly?
Asking “Why?” for each of these questions can help you create a plan that targets opportunities for improvement. With that plan, you can begin to work on improving those areas and meeting or exceeding benchmarks.

Solving business challenges for owners. controllers. operations. sales. IT.
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.
We understand the challenges you face and specialize in customizing, implementing, and training users on two solutions built to handle your needs: Sage 100cloud and Acumatica. No matter where you are on your cloud journey, no matter your size, these two solutions are designed to meet you where you are and put you in a position to achieve your goals.
Support your decision-making and growth with modern distribution software.
