Major Challenges in Today’s Distribution Business

  • Low Margin Business

    Today’s wholesale distribution market has cut-throat competition. Various processes and associates are an integral part of the operations. There is a cost involved in every process. So, even minor mistakes can hurt your business badly. You could maximize your profitability and be successful only when you streamline operations, optimize inventory levels, and minimize inaccuracies.

  • Inefficiency Caused by Fragmented Information

    Many distributors start their business using basic accounting software and familiar tools like spreadsheets. As they grow, they may add additional applications for tasks like inventory, warehouse management, and even e-commerce. However, these new tools often operate in silos or integrate poorly with the existing accounting system. This fragmented approach leads to segmented information, redundant data entry, and a frustrating lack of real-time visibility into your operations. Now, mistakes have become inevitable, and it’s challenging to track inventory levels, and your valuable time is wasted.

  • Inefficient Inventory Management

    For a wholesaler or a distributor, inventory is the core of their business. It is the most important asset in any distribution business. You must have a clear picture of safety stock levels, reorder points, cycle counts, and demand projections in real-time.

  • Lack of Financial Visibility

    Manually handled accounting and bookkeeping processes offers limited access to financial details and can result in the formation of data silos and duplication.

  • Lack of Quality Traceability

    Certain distribution businesses like pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and food and beverages demand rigorous adherence to regulatory standards. Without product traceability quality can’t be assured. Implementing product serialization, a key requirement for product tracing could be a complex task.

  • Lack of Seamless Communication

    Perfect integration across the business, seamless information flow between departments, and inventory updates are the prime necessities to stay ahead of the competition and maximize profit. Equally crucial is the availability of robust reporting tools that offer insights into the performance report of your business, anytime you need it.
