Challenge: Connecting Your Quote-to-Cash Process
Today’s distribution company needs to adapt to a variety of new challenges. However, you can’t forget about traditional ones. The quote-to-cash process includes a variety of moving parts that need to be accounted for—creating the quote, negotiating the contract, and accounting for the transaction have never been easy, but in today’s market, customers expect you to move even faster.
How ERP and Cortekx Keeps You Connected
An established distribution business should have processes in place for inventory control, sales order fulfillment, and purchasing. By connecting and automating processes, embracing collaboration, and gaining visibility over your business, you can adapt to changes in the marketplace, facilitate transactons, and stay ahead of your competition.
Challenge: Growing without Growing Pains
Distribution companies face pressures from all size. Continuing to compete with traditional competition, keeping an eye out for new threats, and doing all this while maintaining or increasing your margins is by no means easy. To make this happen, many are looking to scale their operations, either by adding SKUs, warehouses, or people. Too often, however, growth causes growing pains.
Whether it becomes harder to track everything or your costs begin to get out of control, these growth challenges could derail your hard work.
Solution: Processes and Technologies That Scale with You

Challenge: Staying ahead of Customer Demands
Today’s customers have higher expectations, less loyalty, and more technology—they want a product fast, and have the information they need to find a company to provide it.
To address this, you need to see the complete picture of where your business is and where it is heading, tracking every piece of inventory, knowing when to order, and ultimately staying ahead of customer demand. Customers judge your performance and return to buy from you again based on your speed and quality of response, your on-time delivery commitments, and your customer service across all contact points.

Modern distribution business software provides accurate, company-wide data that lets you create proactive, responsive replenishment operations and minimize inventory costs. Integrated fulfillment systems capture and deliver the data that underlies this successful process.
Save time and drive customer satisfaction higher than ever.
Challenge: Seeing the Big Picture
Like every business, distributors need accurate information to make sound business decisions. Keeping track of everything from finances to inventory, however, is often a challenge. To make this a reality, today’s distributor needs a unified view of the business in real time—no matter how many entities, SKUs, or even currencies you work with.
