Automate Processes

To Maximize Efficiency

Manage Volume

Order volume can overpower the human capacity needed to manage it. That's where an ERP with integrated EDI functionality helps. Easily share necessary order information (addresses, items, quantity) with customers, automate the process of managing volume and eliminate the risk of human error from manual order entry—allowing your staff to focus on fulfilling orders efficiently.

Streamline Warehouse Processes

With ERP automation, the paper "pick sheet" process can be eliminated, along with the many repeat trips to the same location. You can streamline the entire process and pull orders as they arrive with automated ERP bulk pulling capabilities. Our ERP solution can generate pick instructions for any new DTC order with inventory allocated to it at any interval you choose.

Meet Retailer Requirements

Distributors face the challenge of customizing packing slips for each retailer on individual orders—a difficult, inefficient process that is often incompatible with existing systems. Proper labeling, branding and packing are more efficient and less likely to produce mistakes or inconsistencies with an ERP integrated with a small parcel shipping system.

Rise to the New Challenges of DTC

Consumer goods distributors must adapt to an entirely new way of operating. From boxing and labeling to ensuring on-time, every-time residential delivery, you're facing a host of new challenges when it comes to direct-to-consumer (DTC) fulfillment.

Selecting the right technology can change the game. It enables you to manage the complexity and volume that DTC often brings. Our consumer goods ERP can help your business master these challenges. Find out how, now.
