Industry Background

Key Business Challenges… Solved

Wholesale distribution companies face many challenges when it comes to running their business. At the core of most business processes is the need for enterprise resource planning technology. At Sage we help our customers map business priorities and challenges to solutions.

More visibility across your business

You can’t act on what you can’t see. High performing wholesale distribution companies have real time visibility into the status of all processes from quote to cash. This allows them to monitor activity and alter their actions to stay on schedule while keeping costs low and creates a system of record for traceability later on.

Increased efficiency to reduce costs

Streamlined and automated processes – both within an organization and with external partners – are the key to driving business productivity and efficiency. Mobility is a critical part of the solution. High Performing wholesale distribution companies enable mobile access to ERP and key operating systems so that employees are armed with information when and where they need it.

Business Integration for Single View of Business

Integrated business systems create a complete and auditable system of record. All processes are monitored and recorded. Each function can then use the data as needed, whether front –or – back of office. Wholesale distribution companies that have integrated business systems are almost four times as likely as others to have the ability to share and integrate data with the extended enterprise.

“With Sage ERPX3, I can sit here at my desk in Minnesota and quote a customer in Germany, and send off that quote in German with the amounts in EUROS. Even better – I can perform the same task, just as effectively, from my iPad at the coffee shop.”5
