Distributor/Wholesalers:  What would your business look like if you could...

As wholesaler, you live and die by your inventory. In fact, inventory is so important that most wholesalers have invested a significant amount of money in an inventory system. Unfortunately, most inventory control systems only handle inventory; leaving other areas of the business such as sales and accounting with separate, stand-alone systems. This lack of integration across key business functions is preventing you from streamlining your business, increasing sales and growing your business. There is a better way...

SAP® Business One is an affordable, easy-to-use business and operational management solution for dynamic businesses ranging in size from 10 to several hundred employees. The solution is simple yet powerful, allowing an immediate and complete view of both business operations and customer activities. It delivers powerful and fully integrated sales force automation with back-office accounting, sales orders, inventory, production, and project management.

Apply SAP Business One to your distribution business and you'll gain a powerful and fully integrated sales force automation tool with back-office accounting, sales orders, CRM, purchasing and warehouse management.
