Challenges for Distributors in 2023
This post is for small to mid-sized businesses that are vetting new Distribution ERP Software. We hope you find it useful.
Distributors are facing several ongoing issues, including supply shortages and congested ports. Inflation and high interest rates are also challenges to be met by distributors in 2023. Many distributors have been streamlining their operations in order to minimize delays and meet customer demand.
Warehouses that are manually tracking or relying on an outdated system can implement PBS™ Distribution to improve their processes. Effective Distribution ERP helps better manage purchasing, facilitates rapid order fulfillment, improves financial management and provides in-depth reporting for better decision making.
Effective cybersecurity is important to protect distributors against cyber threats, such as malware, ransomware, and phishing. An area of vulnerability could include cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) applications hosted on remote servers.
When opening an email, you may have encountered this message, “WARNING: This email originated from outside of the organization. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe.”
It’s important to provide staff training about clicking on unknown email links or malicious links that appear to originate from internal email addresses. Have staff personally call the employee they think sent the suspicious email and verify its legitimacy. Ensure you have updated your corporate email to use the latest security protocols to authenticate your email.
PBS™ Distribution is on-premise software, allowing you to manage your own server and have complete control of access and security measures. You control user access permissions and with IT support, on-premise software can better ensure that your company’s servers and critical data are protected.
