PBS™ Distribution for Small to Mid-Sized Companies

Hello again,

This post is for small to mid-sized distributors who are vetting a new distribution software system. We hope you find it helpful.

Distributors face an array of common challenges on a day-to-day basis: Processes that are not integrated, not having the right inventory on hand, too much back stock, and manual tracking or information that is stored in the minds of employees which can hamper visibility.

Inventory Control

Does your company have the inventory on hand to prevent shipment delays or rush orders from vendors?

Low inventory levels or incorrect inventory can increase shipping fees and hamper on-time deliveries to your customers, interfering with customer satisfaction.

High levels of slow-moving inventory hampers cash flow.

If you are manually tracking or having to create manual workarounds with your current system, the strategy of “just in time” inventory is hard to implement.

Important details on clipboards or that are stored in the minds of employees can lower visibility and make planning difficult

Having distribution business software that matches your unique processes and a system that provides you with the ability to manage the order flow from purchasing to shipping – as well as a distribution solution that helps you manage a large number of SKUs – can help you gain control of the inventory in your warehouse.

Customer Service

On-time delivery is crucial to customer satisfaction. Distribution software will automate your processes to increase operational visibility and integrate information from different departments to streamline order management.

Order history is readily available with an automated system, as well as information about inventory availability, and purchasing becomes streamlined as well.

Financial Visibility

Real time reporting provides business intelligence for better decision making for your company. You can monitor, make adjustments and free up cash flow.

Distribution software for small business and mid-sized companies can help you manage inventory levels to meet customer demand, as well as prevent cash flow becoming tied up in back stock.
