Wholesale distributors don’t have it easy. They are relied on to stock, manage, sell, and deliver thousands of different products over a variety of industries. Many of these items are nearly identical, with only slight variations. It’s far too easy, and too common, to mix them up.  If you are in the wholesale distribution business, how can you manage everything you have to keep track of? By arming yourself with an ERP system that targets the challenges you face. Acumatica for wholesale distributors.

The Challenge

Wholesale distributors often stock and sell many products that have only small differences. Creating and managing the product families that these items belong to can be difficult, time-consuming, and prone to human error.

It’s easy to see why. When items look the same, it causes confusion. As understandable as this might be, however, it is an issue that cannot be ignored. This confusion often causes errors in purchasing and sales. It can also lead to overstock and stock out scenarios resulting in right offs, rush orders, delayed shipments, and an increased cost of goods sold.

All of these issues create a barrier to growth.
