Distribution Software


Distribution ERP and CRM Software Solutions


It’s no secret that not all software is created equal, and a platform that is a great fit for one business could be a dud for another. So how should distributors approach upgrading, implementing, and configuring ERP solutions? The best ERP system should inherently perform the functionality most critical for compliance, reporting, and streamlining your business. The ultimate distribution ERP system should provide the ability to track and record every step of the supply chain without labor-intensive data entry and should respond to rapidly emerging issues and challenges.

Whether your business is picking, packing, shipping, or order processing with fulfillment services, choosing software with the tools to meet the needs of your customers is critical. Keeping up with the fast-paced enterprise marketplace is imperative for distributors to streamline business practices and offer optimal customer service. The good news– Datix offers a simple technical solution to these overreaching challenges that many distribution companies currently face.

When you work with us, we will guide you through the entire implementation process, providing support before, during, and after implementation. The distribution industries we commonly serve include:

Electrical
To keep up with the competition, electrical distributors need specialized capabilities from their distribution software. There is no typical day-to-day for the industry—one day may include serving contractors, servicing products for homeowners, and shipping sensitive electrical products such as lighting fixtures, sensors, or motor starters. Most electrical distribution companies will have processes that might not be accommodated by every software platform: counter sales with various payment types, wire-cutting, reel tracking, and head-pulling, for example. Supporting complex job management, including change orders, deliveries, and progress payments are also a necessity for your distribution software.

Datix can help you use Infor distribution ERP software to automate and support these processes for your electrical distribution business. Infor CloudSuite Distribution is a comprehensive, scalable cloud solution aimed to help distributors who are focused on growth, customer engagement, and extended services. The platform has a robust tool belt of capabilities that can handle all the challenges electrical distributors may face.
