3 headaches, 1 solution
Working with a variety of distributors, we’ve identified three specific headaches your distribution company may be dealing with. You’ll recognize the problems but read on to see how Acumatica WMS relieves them and sets your distribution company on the path to greater efficiency and increased growth.
Headache #1: Too much potential for error
Any system that requires manual order updates by your employees places you at risk of error. Typically, one team member enters an order, another prints it out, another ticks off the picked order, another packs it for shipping, etc. Multiple people interact with the order before it leaves your facility. At each stage, there is room for human and data-entry error on a paper order sheet. If you process hundreds of orders a day, the potential for mistakes increases exponentially.
Acumatica WMS has automated pick, pack, and ship processes that will eliminate the need for paper orders and the potential for order errors. You’ll save time, improve your accuracy, and significantly increase your customer satisfaction ratings.
Headache #2: Missed opportunities
If yours is a growing distribution business, you’ll eventually want to market to the big players such as Walmart or Cabelas. To do that, you’ll need to use an EDI (electronic data interchange) system to share order information with those companies.
Acumatica WMS integrates seamlessly with third-party EDI solutions. Expand your selling capabilities, and you’ll increase your opportunities. The system will grow as you grow, allowing added expansion.
Headache #3: Data delays
If your warehouse employees need to be at a fixed place to input and process data from paper pick sheets, think of the time wasted as they run back and forth to data terminals in the warehouse. Any delay in data entry can affect the accuracy of your inventory record.
Acumatica WMS provides a real-time connection to your ERP. Employees using handheld devices can enter data from anywhere in your warehouse. Inventory levels will be up to date at all times. You, as well as your customers, will know precisely what is available for distribution.
Acumatica WMS is the solution
Acumatica WMS has all the time saving and organizational functionality needed by growing distribution businesses. Fully integrated with the Acumatica Commerce Edition, Acumatica WMS helps time-strapped wholesale distributors get more done — in less time — with fewer errors and increased customer satisfaction.
