Food distribution companies face unique and ever-changing challenges. With rapidly changing environments and considerations, the list of challenges facing distributors can be a long one. By powering your food distribution business with Prime FoodService, a modern, cloud ERP platform built within the Acumatica framework, businesses can tackle these five huge challenges all distributors face.
Prime FoodService’s built-in Route Management and mobile delivery management tools help fight this problem in a number of ways. Route optimization ensures that drivers are always taking the most effective and efficient route, while an easy to navigate UI means there are never costly time delays as drivers struggle to complete the delivery process.
These two factors combine to make sure that your drivers complete more deliveries quicker and more efficiently.
Supply chain disruptions can cause massive knock-on effects that continue to trouble businesses long after the initial impact. By powering their operations with Prime FoodService they can avoid these troubles altogether.
Prime FoodService allows users to see and track all their data in real-time, ensuring there are no mix-ups in what is available vs sold out, shipped vs unshipped, or other common issues facing distributors. With the ability to integrate with third party data this ensures smooth sailing, allowing for alternative solutions to be found in the event of something short-shipping.
The sales guides mentioned above also have powerful sales-growth potential. They enable distributors to set up customer-specific profiles with a customer’s typical orders. This not only allows for easy order entry, but also allows for unique up and cross-sale opportunities, as users can add items they think a customer will need or would like to their order guide. This simplifies and streamlines the upsell process, not only benefiting the distributor, but also the customer, as they get a better, more personalized selection of offerings.
By powering your distribution business with Prime FoodService, built within the Acumatica framework, you are ensuring that your business is able to meet new, evolving challenges as they come up.
