3 Technologies Every Distribution Company Needs
It’s no secret: establishing a distribution company that sells online products can be incredibly complex, especially in today’s ever-connected era. However, with these three leading technologies, you can simplify how you manage your online distribution company, enabling you to grow your business faster and more sustainably.
1. Warehouse Management System
With a warehouse management system, you’ll be able to work with each individual customer to develop a program that fits perfectly with their wants and needs. Along with providing unique warehouse management services, you’ll also reap the benefits of innovative fulfillment solutions that let you receive products, inspect inventory, palletize, and more. This technology helps you utilize your storage in the best way possible so your business can operate at the highest level.
2. Inventory Management System
There are few things more frustrating than trying to operate your own inventory management only to find that you’re out of a specific material that’s vital to the delivery of your product. That’s why it’s so important to have a reliable inventory management system that can be customized to your business and operate in real-time to ensure you’re adequately stocked and ready to offer your clients the best. With 24/7 visibility, you’ll be able to have full access to inventory management and quality control.
3. Returns Management System
Lastly, having a reliable returns management system is a must. With comprehensive reverse logistics and return software, you’ll have real-time, web-based visibility in your online portal to returned products that gives you access to information regarding recall management, testing and warranty, repair and remanufacturing, and more. This technology comes with a wide range of reporting capabilities so that you can improve cash flow, reduce production costs, reduce cycle times, improve business control, increase liquidation values, and improve transportation effectiveness.
