All You Need In One
EDI and Managed EDI
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) has become the primary way that retailers and suppliers communicate electronically—and is often required by major industry players. Aptean Distribution ERP includes built-in EDI, with real-time transmissions and an integrated mapper, giving you full control over your EDI in one central location. We also offer Managed EDI services if you prefer to let our team handle your mapping and day-to-day monitoring on your behalf.
The system’s warehouse management features allow full inventory control, including the picking and putaway of goods. Its import and logistics management capabilities enables seamless tracking of shipments as well as intelligence on route management for deliveries, increasing shipping speed and profits. And integrated retailer compliance functionality enables you to track and manage chargebacks, customer automatic accruals and EDI fees so you’re able to reclaim profits and see the true, bottom-line profitability of each customer, product and supplier.
Direct to Consumer Shipping
Aptean Distribution ERP offers specific features built for direct-to-consumer shipping such as ProShip integration, street address validation and retailer specific packing slips—enabling you to process high volumes of shipments easily and efficiently.
Forecasting and Purchasing
Automated distribution resource planning (DRP) and forecasting tools integrate historical sales data and long lead times to help you optimize purchasing decisions. And a flexible, rule-based environment provides automatic alerts on inventory status and reorder levels, so you can maximize order fill rates and improve customer satisfaction.
"Aptean Distribution ERP is a user-friendly ERP system with a personal touch for support that actually knows us and understands our business needs and offers solutions to meet those needs."
Our distribution ERP includes built-in warehouse management tools allowing for improved management of inventory, including receiving, picking and putaway of goods.
Aptean Distribution ERP DRP tools integrate point-of-sale data, customer forecasts, historical sales trends, seasonality, supplier lead times and more to help you optimize purchasing decisions.
Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) Shipping
Aptean Distribution ERP Shipment Manager supports seamless integrations with all the major carriers (UPS, FedEx, USPS, etc.) and offers integrated shipping rate shopping as well as street address verification.
Import Management features help you achieve perfect order fulfillment to get your customers the right products at the right time. Shipment, vessel and container tracking, and management tools provide visibility of incoming inventory and the system automatically tracks and calculates your landed costs—so you understand your true profitability.
Aptean Distribution ERP helps enterprises manage chargebacks—the fees that retailers charge to suppliers, often due to errors. Through improved tracking and better maintaining related records, you can reduce the number of chargebacks you incur and recover erroneous charges.
With shipping tools—including route management, dynamic routing, BOLS (bill of lading) and packing slips—Aptean Distribution ERP allows consumer goods importers and distributors like you to bring a new level of organization and oversight to your operations.
Financials and Accounting
The Aptean Distribution ERP system brings simplicity to the bottom line when used as the primary general ledger and accounting tool for accounts payable and receivable.
Cloud or On-Premise
For greater flexibility, Aptean Distribution ERP can be deployed either in the cloud or on-premise. Both options are made easy with our team on hand to help streamline implementation.
Analytics and Reporting
Aptean Distribution ERP provides relevant and valuable business intelligence, powered by Microsoft Power BI, on profitability, financial data, sales figures, operational reports and compliance reporting.
Aptean Distribution ERP Mobile Sales Rep
Increase sales productivity by providing remote access to product details, pricing, inventory levels and customer account info.
Customer Portal offers a sleek, web-based means for customers to access product details, view customer-specific pricing and terms, and input their own orders. Not only does this save time for customer service representatives, but it also minimizes errors because data flows directly into the system.
Similar to the Customer Portal, the Supplier Portal offers a streamlined, web-based means for customer suppliers to directly add production, shipping and PO updates. This way, customers don’t need to waste time repeatedly checking on these issues.

EDI typically provides automatic data transfers for more efficient communication with trading partners. With EDI Transaction Manager, this capability is fully integrated into the Aptean Distribution ERP system, providing drag-and-drop EDI map creation tools for self-service EDI management. This solution eliminates the need for third-party EDI software and provides EDI transaction archiving for data storage, retrieval and inquiry.
