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:
