Aptean Apprise ERP, DTC, Consumer Goods


It’s official: ecommerce and direct-to-consumer (DTC) shipping are more than just trends.  Since 2014, ecommerce has sustained a steady growth rate of 23% and in 2020, 16.1% of all retail sales are expected to happen online. Is your consumer goods company doing enough to take advantage of this shift in business models?

Our new whitepaper, Meeting the Physical Demands and Retailer Requirements of Direct-to-Consumer Business, delves into the way consumer goods companies are moving towards ecommerce, online orders and DTC shipping. It looks at the physical demands of DTC order processing and the retailer requirements your company should be prepared for.

In this whitepaper, you’ll learn why consumer goods companies are shifting away from traditional fulfillment models and the challenges that emerge in doing so. You’ll also get an inside-look into how industry-specific technology, like an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution built for consumer goods companies, can help make the shift towards DTC an easier one.
