Wholesale & distribution accounting software FAQs

Wholesale distribution management and accounting software can help you overcome the challenges of a complex, fast-moving industry. 

Seize control of your stock
Improve visibility across the supply chain to ensure accountability for all stakeholders—from suppliers to customers. Understand all aspects of your inventory, product profitability, order to cash, and warehouse operations so you can stock, pick, and fulfil orders more efficiently.

Ramp up profit margins
Make better purchasing decisions and margins and manage supplier quality and performance. Manage sales force assignments with ease and track corresponding targets and commissions.

Empower your teams
Empower a mobile sales force with visibility into customers, stocks, past purchases, quotes, and promotions through any connected device.
Automating accounting for your wholesale distribution will help improve accounting processes, save time, and improve productivity throughout your warehouse.
Wholesale distribution accounting can be automated if you are using the right ERP software.
Improve customer service with mobile technologies
Mobility, both in the warehouse and out on the road, is one of the major trends affecting your industry - without it, your team can end up being tied to a computer terminal or wasting a customer’s time in the field. Your business can’t afford to be left behind.

Get the most from your stock
No distribution business will make a profit, or survive, if customers are left waiting because products are out of stock. Inventory management is a constant balancing act to match demand to stock levels - and getting it wrong can be disastrous, leading to lost sales, too much cash tied up in excess inventory, and damaged customer relationships. Fixed assets, in the accounting sense, also have to be kept as low as possible as they represent a significant cost in the annual financial statements, and achieving this involves increasingly complex calculations.

Don't let legacy systems hold you back
How many units shipped last month? What’s your most popular item? Who’s your best customer? Which warehouse sees the most turnover? For distributors still using disparate legacy systems like spreadsheets and homegrown databases, getting answers to these questions in an efficient and timely way can be extremely difficult.
Cloud based accounting software can help your company run smoother and be more productive. Cloud-based software brings real-time information to everyone at your company, allowing everyone to work more effectively and using the same data - wherever they are.
