eoWarehouse provides beverage distributors with an end-to-end accounting solution. Our warehouse management software (WMS) helps keep your operations running efficiently and effectively, saving you time and money in the long run. For almost 20 years, we have worked with distributors using SaaS-based business management solutions. We are very knowledgeable about the beverage industry and have created WMS to reflect the daily needs of distributors. In fact, we now serve over 11,000 users in the distribution industry with our software. Read on to learn about 5 things you need from your Warehouse Management Software and how our software helps to get those things done.

Automation

Doing day-to-day warehouse processes by hand is inefficient, costly, and can lead to errors. The eoWarehouse platform automates many of your warehouse processes and leads to a 50% reduction in time spent on administrative duties. Through the automation of our software, paperwork can be completely removed, and there will be an increase in delivery accuracy.

Our software provides distributors with real-time inventory levels and locations. In addition, it automatically tracks and manages tasks to make sure full efficiency is reached. The automation of the software will give your sales force real-time data while expediting the order fulfillment process. Since our system is cloud-based, your employees can access important information from computers, phones, and iPads. The software helps distributors in the warehouse through high-tech features like voice picking, auto depletes and replenishes, and palletization.

One area where mistakes can happen is with inventory management. When inventory is moved between locations, sometimes the numbers can be off and cause issues. eoWarehouse software standardizes procedures involving inventory movements and location, making inventory much more accurate.

Detailed Analytics

Detailed Analytics

Having reliable, automated analytics is essential so distributors can accurately forecast their needs. eoWarehouse software provides distributors with detailed data so that they can analyze and properly plan for consumer demand. It is critical for distributors to have the inventory they need when they need it. In fact, our WMS reports inventory levels and location up-to-the-minute, leaving no room for error.

The eoWarehouse software reports things like products and SKUs, demand variability, inventory balances, and also automatically buffers stocks requirements to avoid a certain product going out of stock. This type of data takes the guesswork out of purchasing inventory. Distributors can easily view stock levels to see what needs to be ordered. The software also tracks various warehouse/inventory-related metrics to configure tasks and maximize output and efficiency.

In addition, the software provides distributors with information about business demand, inventory investments, sales history, and probable product demand. All of these things help with planning purposes and budgeting and better managing your warehouse..

Streamlined Sales

A WMS should be designed to create a premier distribution experience while streamlining sales. Our software will give your sales and delivery team the ability to access real-time reporting from mobile devices. This is very helpful since they spend a lot of time out on the road. The sales side of the software also expedites order fulfillment from start to finish. It contains POS management as well as single-screen settlement.

It can also provide flexible rule-based pricing, promotions, and supplier rebates. In addition, the software provides the sales team with product performance surveys, so they know and understand what consumers like and dislike about products. In addition to streamlining sales, the software streamlines delivery, saving you time, money, and allowing you to get product to your customers faster. The software integrates scheduling and routing tools to ensure that your deliveries are as efficient as possible.

Customer Loyality

With eoWarehouse’s platform, not only can distributors decrease costs and increase revenues, but they can also build and improve relationships with customers. Due to the automation of the platform, manual errors are eliminated, meaning you aren’t making mistakes that affect your customers. By using this platform, you will become a trusted advisor to your retailers.

Your customers will greatly appreciate how accurate your service is and the fact that you can provide them with evidence-based advice about inventory and sales.
