SAP Business One for Distribution and Wholesale Sectors

It's a challenge, remaining competitive in a global industry with lower profit margins and higher costs. Wholesalers and distributors are facing shrinking margins, more external pressures and increased competition from third-party logistics providers. Today, most wholesalers and distributors are still running fragmented, legacy systems that won't interface.

In a nutshell:

 

SAP Business One for Distribution and Wholesale Sectors

 

Without technology, it can be hard to turn your strategic vision into reality. The stock capabilities of SAP Business One enable users to accurately manage: inbound and outbound shipments, item master information and price lists. Users can also define alternative items, perform stock increase or decrease adjustments, revalue stock costs based on current market values, perform cycle counts and generate pick lists for open sales orders.
