Distribution ERP helps distributors, importers and manufacturers to be more efficient, planned, organised and resilient. They are always having their own distribution channels for several distributors/resellers/retailers who are spread across a country or a region. The management of a distribution network could be very difficult when it gets large, so distribution management and automation become an important requirement.
Distribution management refers to the process of overseeing the movement of goods from supplier or manufacturer to point of sale. It is an overarching term that refers to numerous activities and processes such as inventory, warehousing, supply chain, and logistics.
Sales Channel management is an important part of the business cycle for distributors and wholesalers. The profit margins of businesses depend on how quickly they can turn over their goods. The more they sell, the more they earn, which means a better future for the business. Having a successful sales channel management system is also important for businesses to remain competitive and to keep customers happy.
Sales Channel Management is critical to a company’s ability to successfully attract customers and operate profitably. Executing it successfully requires effective management of the entire internal process. The larger a corporation, or the greater the number of supply points a company has, the more it will need to rely on automation to manage the distribution process effectively.
