Rapid Sales Orders: Increase the speed and accuracy of sales order capturing

As a wholesale distributor solutions provider, we evaluate each client’s business situation to provide the best software solution for their business. There is no one size fits all solution for every business which results in a more tailored approach and additional applications that can be utilized. As a result, Rapid Sales Orders was born.

Industry Challenges

Whether you’re selling off-the-shelf products or delivering custom-made items, wholesale distributors encounter many challenges. A modern, automated ERP system will help increase visibility, improve inventory management, enhance demand planning, deliver accurate analytics, and drive compliance through automated workflows.

In a fast-moving industry, you as a wholesale distributor face an increasingly challenging operational environment. The advancement of technology has unleashed a rise in client expectations. To combat these expectations many wholesale distributors have introduced multiple product lines and increased outsourcing, but these new decisions bring added complexity to your already existing supply chain. The risk is even greater for wholesale distribution companies that are using outdated software that doesn’t connect all aspects of their business.

Poor visibility of information, silos of data, manual entry of data, inefficient processes, lack of stock control, limited price & margin control and poor customer service are some of the challenges facing Wholesale Distributors.

How Rapid Sales Orders Works
