Distribution

THE CHALLENGE

The economy is complex and volatile. Your customers are demanding. How can you, as a distributor, thrive? You can get closer to business partners, deliver exceptional service, and carve out a value-added and differentiated role in the supply chain.

The new-normal economy calls for innovative thinking, bold initiatives, prudent investments, and top-notch execution. High-performing distributors automate rebate and chargeback processes to speed the claims lifecycle and improve cash flow. For competitive advantage, you must offer value-added services to drive growth and profits. You must get closer to business partners to understand, analyze, define, and successfully deliver a portfolio of value-added services.

Today’s industry leaders make better decisions with analytics and real-time insights. They continuously refine and enhance your ability to negotiate best deals with suppliers, optimize pricing and inventory levels, and proactively address operational inefficiencies. They perform cost-to-serve analysis and advanced customer, product, and supplier segmentation, and take the right actions for higher profitability and optimal customer service.

Mobile solutions provide sales and service associates timely, role-specific information, at any location, to help manage the business, close deals, and provide a richer customer experience.
