Reach More Customers and Improve Loyalty
Do your customers have complete visibility into your catalog and the status of their orders, 24/7? Give it to them with SYSPRO’s secure, integrated e-commerce and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) capabilities. These tools also help you process high volumes without an avalanche of paperwork.
Use the same applications to streamline communication with your trading partners, too. For custom orders, SYSPRO also offers Web-based collaboration tools that simplify development.
Deliver Faster with Fewer Errors
Taking orders electronically and processing them through workflow automation helps you move products more quickly and reduces the possibility of errors. Advanced planning tools automatically set your labor schedule and track warehouse performance so you can eliminate redundancies.
Distributors also use SYSPRO to automate the creation of Bills of Materials and product kitting. And SYSPRO’s lot and ingredient traceability – with barcoding and serial tracking – means you always know where everything is located, anywhere in transit.
Optimize Inventory and Reduce Costs
What happens if demand spikes or drops for a certain product line? Does your purchasing respond to seasonality and other market changes? SYSPRO ERP for distribution management provides reliable, accurate forecasts so you can manage your supply chain and become more demand-driven, instead of keeping too much inventory on the shelf.
In addition, through workflow automation, SYSPRO ERP software helps distributors create a “smart warehouse” where demand drives the movement of goods, so you can reduce fulfillment costs. Our container tracking application can also help you cut transportation costs.
Improve Strategic and Financial Planning
