Growing out of Quickbooks2019-07-25T13:38:22-08:00

We are a rapidly growing distributor, receiving many more orders per day, and due to multiple systems are having immense trouble keeping up. We use Quickbooks for sales orders, purchase orders and accounting, while using Excel spreadsheets for inventory and yet another system for shipping. We spend all day re-keying information between these systems, sometimes inaccurately, and it’s causing immense distress for us and our clients. This includes our inability to accurately know what we can promise and when, as well as not having management reports that are “one version of the truth”. The result is out-of-of control operating costs, overworked employees being paid overtime and clients that are dissatisfied.

One fully integrated business software system will provide the ability for operators to enter data once and have accurate information flow the system effortlessly, thus cutting costs and driving top line revenue as a result. Further, it will provide accurate, real time business management information “at will” for all to see.

How Do I Better Manage Inventory?2019-07-26T04:14:20-08:00

I have too many items in stock at all times. How do I better manage my inventory needs?

To avoid the complications of overstocking products, better understanding what your clients want is imperative. ERP solutions allow you to deconstruct data to create a stronger overview of your business and learn what customers are buying.

Our Disorganized Warehouse is Frustrating Customers2019-07-26T04:49:35-08:00

Our warehouse is disorganized and we can’t find inventory in a timely fashion…and sometimes our software shows we have the item and it turns out we don’t. This has caused immense frustration for our customers who aren’t receiving their order on the promised date and, sometimes, don’t receive it at all. We just lost our biggest customer because of this

Warehouse management software, along with properly designed bin locations and bar code technology, can help to ensure maximum customer retention as a result of accurate order promising and consistently fulfilling delivery service levels.

What’s a Good Solution to the Problems Caused by Overstocking?2019-07-26T04:12:29-08:00

I overstock to ensure we don’t lose business, but end up with too much dead inventory. This unnecessarily reduces my cash, and increases my inventory carrying costs. The truth is, I never know, with confidence, how much to order and when…

Having the right product for the right customer at the right time, all the time, is a primary goal of all distributors. Trying to use Excel spreadsheets and “gut feel” rarely accomplish this. We prescribe implementation of forecasting software and procedures that give you the absolute best chance of driving customer service levels while minimizing the impact on your cash position
