5 Ways to Streamline Your Supply and Distribution Chains

Every type of business looks to maximise margins. But is there ever a sure-fire way of doing this? The key to maximising profits in your wholesale and distribution business comes from the ability to streamline core inventory processes. You need your warehouse to be as slick as possible to avoid any bottlenecks in your small business.

SAP Business One helps your warehouse work like clockwork by managing all your core warehouse activities in one centralised solution. The systematic nature of SAP Business One means the solution monitors and automates everything on your behalf.

Here are five ways SAP Business One helps streamline supply and distribution chains:

1. Get Resilient

SMEs must be flexible to compete with larger rivals when new opportunities arise. But that doesn’t mean investing in surplus stock unnecessarily. SAP Business One helps you build a resilient supply chain that meets existing demand, checks real-time inventory levels, and provides accurate forecasts into potential orders.

2. Go Dynamic

One of the most attractive features for any wholesale and distribution firm is SAP Business One’s suite of supply chain management tools. This dynamic solution provides instant business intelligence about what’s going on in your warehouse. You can check stock levels and locations, monitor goods in and out, and create pick-and-pack lists to send out orders efficiently.

3. Meet Promises

SAP Business One’s powerful ‘available to promise’ feature is essential if you’ve got multiple sales staff placing orders on popular items. You can automatically check existing stock counts in SAP Business One because everything is maintained and controlled centrally. The solution will also highlight what’s reserved for other customers, items waiting to be received, and any products required for production orders.

4. Manage BOMs

Many SMEs are frustrated by delays in production due to a lack of components. SAP Business One eliminates bottlenecks by automatically creating purchase order requests for items needed within your manufacturing cycles. By monitoring and automating the Bill of Materials (BOMs) process, you can ensure your warehouse isn’t slowing down your production line.

5. Maximise Profits

The BOM features in SAP Business One break down the cost of individual components in your finished products. You can also store your main supplier details and price lists in SAP Business One. That way, when a new opportunity lands on your desk, you can quickly compare prices to ensure you’re maximising your bottom line.
