Oversee Every Detail, From Raw Materials to Finished Goods
In order to stay ahead of varying customer demand while maintaining profitability, wholesalers need to efficiently plan ahead to purchase earlier, in bulk, and at lower costs, and deliver on time. This involves accurately tracking purchase orders, the movement of parts on the way to becoming finished goods, expected material delivery dates, production schedule, shipping and packing, and comparing it with current customer orders and forecasted demand.
