Industry Night: Distribution

Direct Store Delivery (DSD) Distributors that have been around a while know that it can be hard to stay on top of deliveries while keeping up with growing needs and new challenges. However, it’s important to take the time to reexamine your needs and explore how new technology can help accomplish them. When reexamining your current technology, consider the following:

Is it easy to use?
Don’t make people think more than they have to—software should be intuitive so employees can do their work quickly and without having to troubleshoot.

Is it efficient?
Does your management application offer integrated sales, administrative, and operational processes for maximum efficiency?

How much visibility does it offer?
Critical information should be available at your fingertips.

Does it allow for growth?
Should you undergo a rapid expansion, would your software be able to grow with you?

Is support offered?
Whatever solution you choose, make sure support is available 24/7 in case anything should ever go wrong.
