If you’re seeking a solution for managing your distribution organization; then Acumatica, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software system for managing distribution businesses could be your ideal answer. An ERP’s worth is frequently outshined by the installation and implementation learning curve as well as user adoption, which allows decision makers to dismiss their countless constructive qualities. For distribution businesses considering Acumatica or attempting to increase the efficiency of their current ERP systems, this is the method an ERP can assist intensely streamlining processes, drive higher revenue, and reduce expenses all at the same time.

Cloud-Based ERP platforms can:

1. Integrate

The correct ERP solution is fully customizable and has multiple integration options for your business systems. You can manage your core distribution processes in the same program that manages your financial, accounting, and other solutions.

2. Reduce Paperwork

Requisition forms, inventory management paperwork, invoicing, and customer ordering, there is a multitude of paperwork involved in distribution. With a universal ERP system, your business can eliminate much of the paper out of your operational processes.

3. Automate Inventory Management

If you have an ERP for financial or other processes and controls and are not tracking or automating your inventory, you are losing substantial costs savings. Every distribution business has a system for inventory management; the right ERP solution will integrate with your current system and give you automation tools.

4. Maintain Multiple Users

Business value comes from relationships. Transformational aspects of cloud-based ERP software are the relationship management features. With cloud-based global user access, you can build your relationships with customers as well as vendors. These relationships simplify and streamline your distribution chain operations.

5. Expand with the Cloud

Increasing your customer base often takes sales reps out into the field. This is one area your business can scale up and out without adding costly infrastructure or locations. Why? Because cloud-based ERPs connect your sales reps with your home office – and with each other – using smartphones and other mobile media tools.
