Wholesalers – Can Acumatica Help You Prepare for this Holiday Season?
Posted on: December 23, 2016 | By: Craig Thompson | Acumatica
The biggest shopping month has begun and everyone is counting down the days until the Holidays arrive. Is your Wholesale Distribution organization ready to handle the serious increase in orders? Customer satisfaction is crucial, however during the holiday seasons it’s more important than ever. Consumers are under enough stress as it is, and no business wants to be remembered as the one that wasn’t able to follow through because of an inventory shortage, lost packages or poor planning. Now, by now I’m sure you’ve heard of ERP Software and the benefits that it can bring to your business. Acumatica was built with the wholesale distribution industry in mind, and can help ensure that your seasonal holiday rush runs smoothly – the first time around.
Demand Planning & Visibility
While I’m sure wholesalers are anticipating a seasonal rush around the Holidays, many may find that they aren’t quite sure exactly how much more of an increase in business they will be receiving. This can leave your business with an inventory excess or deficit – which ultimately loses your distribution company money either way. Luckily, cloud ERP for wholesale distributors has a demand planning function that pulls data from past trends so that you can have a clear picture of the volume you need to keep your wholesale organization running smoothly and effectively this holiday season. Acumatica’s predictive analytics are crucial for keeping up with customer orders and being certain that you will not have an excess of waste or have to turn away orders because of a lack of inventory. You will also be able to make wiser purchasing decisions so that you are filling your warehouses with your most profitable and most demanded products instead of those with a lower turnover rate.
Being certain that you are seeing the full picture within your wholesale distribution company is important, especially when the holidays com around. Without the ability to clearly see both in and outbound product flows clearly, making important decisions can be difficult. Acumatica ERP offers real time analytics that allow distributors to access a complete view of the process from start to finish – that way, problems can be addressed before they even occur.
Acumatica Cloud ERP is an excellent solution for many small to mid-sized Wholesale Distribution companies. They offer flexible pricing options without sacrificing functionality. Acumatica’s powerful Cloud based ERP allows for growth within your organization and can be accessed from anywhere with a web browser. Having complete visibility and access into your wholesale distribution is crucial for your success, no matter what the season. However, with the holidays coming around, it is more important than ever to ensure your success.
