Take the Guesswork out of Managing Inventory

Tracking inventory and product distribution is crucial to your business. Doing so accurately can be a challenge, whether you’re facing inadequate communication between departments, trying to manage multiple warehouses or still relying on old paperwork systems. Without accurate, timely information, your managers are left using guesswork to set inventory levels.

Our integrated solution provides real-time information, allowing you to confidently predict demand, set appropriate stock levels and make your entire distribution process more efficient.

  • Take the manual work out of inventory management – our system will monitor your inventory, lead times for purchase and forecasting, and even alert you when it’s time to re-order.
  • Reduce the frequency of backorders with more accurate inventory planning.
  • Streamline order-to-cash to get paid faster, giving you more resources to replenish stock.
  • Control freight and keep shipping costs down with an automated system that sends shipping requests direct to your chosen carrier’s system and returns final charges and tracking numbers.
  • Provide accurate estimates of shipping costs to your customers using the rate shopping feature.
  • Capture additional sales opportunities with online ordering capability and real-time stock availability.
  • Improve customer satisfaction with real-time inquiry response via 24/7 online portals and e-commerce solutions.
  • Manage rental equipment by customer or job.

Purchasing

Meet Sarah, she works in Purchasing for a small distribution firm.

How SAP Business One works for Purchasing

Sarah’s Problems
  • Manual processes used to manage backordered items are inefficient and prone to error.
  • Lack of visibility on what inventory is on-hand and available leads to duplicate purchasing and increased inventory expenses.
  • Without a planning tool, it is difficult to effectively plan for future demand on a given product.
The SAP Business One Solution
  • Orders for items not in stock are automatically flagged for Purchasing to expedite and reserve those items for the specific sales order.
  • Built-in inventory management helps you optimize stock levels so you can avoid having too little or not enough.
  • The MRP tool reacts to short-term demand and long-term planning requirements to provide accurate forecasts.
Warehouse Manager

Meet Mike, he’s a Warehouse Manager.

How SAP Business One works for Warehouse Managers

Mike’s Problems
  • Order accuracy is currently ensured by manually double checking orders before being sent out – a very time-consuming task that eats up valuable human resources.
The SAP Business One Solution
  • Shippers can compare items scanned during packing against the items and quantities listed on the original sales order, and use item weight data stored in the system as a quick, two-point check.
