Delivering integrated solutions to the distribution industry

In the distribution business, creating a competitive advantage is critical to business survival.  New distribution channels continue to grow, while existing channels are expanding with new approaches – such as global sourcing, cross-sell capabilities, third-party logistics and radio frequency identification (RFID). Distributors face greater competition and higher customer service expectations and must implement more advanced management solutions to cope with these changes. Automating your business processes to provide better customer service, reduce operating costs and maximise your profitability helps to create that advantage.
