Full-Featured Operations Management
By adopting Aptean Distribution ERP, a solution with everything you need, any consumer goods distributor can quickly replace its inefficient system full of third-party plugins and customizations with a solution that supports your specific needs and unique business challenges.
EDI & Managed EDI
Given that Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is essential for retailers and suppliers, Aptean Distribution ERP offers both integrated EDI and managed EDI services depending upon your exact needs.
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.
Warehouse Management tools allow for improved management of inventory, including receiving, picking, and putaway of goods.
Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) Shipping
Aptean Distribution ERP includes features to make DTC shipping processes easier and more efficient. 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 SmartyStreets 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 the visibility you need into 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, customers can reduce the number of chargebacks they incur and recover erroneous charges.
With shipping tools—including route management, dynamic routing, BOLS (bill of lading) & packing slips—Aptean Distribution ERP will allow consumer goods importers and distributors to bring a new level of organization and oversight to their operations.
PLM (Product Lifecycle Management)
Dynamic tools built into Aptean Distribution ERP give users visibility over a product’s entire lifecycle, from development and production to sales performance and beyond.
Supplier Production Monitoring (SPM) and Supplier Portal
Integrated Supplier Production Monitoring and Supplier Portal features offer improved visibility into overseas manufacturing facilities, including inspections, quality control, production dates, shipping schedules and other supply-side information.
Financials & Accounting
Aptean Distribution ERP brings simplicity to the bottom line when used as the primary general ledger and accounting tool for accounts payable and receivable.
Analytics & 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.
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 by Aptean’s team that helps streamline implementation.
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.
Supplier Portal offers a sleek, web-based means for customer suppliers to directly add production, shipping, and PO updates. This way, customers don’t need to repeatedly check on these issues.
EDI Transaction Manager
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.
EDI Managed Services
With EDI Managed Services fully integrated into the Aptean Distribution ERP system, our EDI team monitors and manages day-to-day EDI processes and transactions (including mapping) to ensure everything is running smoothly. This allows our customers to stop worrying and instead focus on running their business.
Aptean Distribution ERP Shipment Manager
Aptean Distribution ERP Shipment Manager enables users to compare shipping rates and delivery times directly within the system. Other functions include the ability to access tracking numbers and print shipping labels automatically without ever leaving the system.
Accept digital payments from your customers and capture them in Aptean Distribution ERP with Aptean Pay, a cloud-native payment platform. Aptean Pay is fully integrated with Aptean Distribution ERP, allowing you to automate time-consuming accounting processes like Accounts Receivable reconciliation, invoicing communications and more.
Leverage Aptean eCommerce to quickly and easily launch an online storefront for business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-consumer (B2C) commerce. Two-way integration with Aptean Distribution ERP will enable you to seamlessly import products and pricing from Aptean Distribution ERP into your eCommerce storefront, and purchases made in eCommerce will be automatically captured as orders in Aptean Distribution ERP.
