Enhance sales-ordering and maximize profitability. Support for ADC ensures that distribution systems are seamlessly integrated with financial and reporting applications. Accurate data flows throughout your organization, helping to streamline inventory and shipments and boost your forecasting capabilities. Additionally, access to real-time customer information can lead to better customer service—the kinds of service that helps keep the orders rolling in.
Increase responsiveness through communication. Whether you integrate CRM and accounting systems to support customers or implement a flexible pricing strategy that uses unlimited price lists, price-banding, cost uplift pricing, or quantity break pricing, these agile solutions give you the flexibility to do it all over a secure Internet connection.
Improve delivery efficiencies. By using applications that integrate with bar code technologies and radio frequency identification (RFID), you can plan and automate delivery schedules and gain greater insight into the supply chain. Support for ADC sales systems can help you nearly eliminate comprehensive inventory counts, lower the inventory required to service customers, pull customer orders in a fraction of the time typically required and comply with changing customer demand.
Monitor food safety. Keep your food supply safer by coordinating product-tracking from suppliers and facilitating traceability from supplier to customer in markets that require it. Improve compliance and accountability by implementing metric settings and tracking for individual warehouses, departments, and processes.
