Warehouse and Distribution
Are You Frustrated that Increased Operating Costs Are Reducing Your Margins?
If you’re a Warehouse or Distribution organisation, then the good news is you’re in the right place.
“As growth becomes increasingly challenging in mature retail markets the supply chain will continue to play a significant role in retail and supplier trading relationships” ~ (AFGC Supply Chain Report 2018)
But first, consider this…
Dealing With Inefficiencies
With increased competition causing changes to operations, running a warehouse or distribution business is complex. You may be dealing with fragmented operations, restricted visibility, and manual invoicing processes. What’s more challenging is having separate teams or individuals running each division and hoping the financial reports are consistent.
Struggling With Out-Dated Software
Maybe it was a cost-saving idea to use spreadsheets or basic finance software to keep track of your inventory, sales, and payments, but now it takes days to do the monthly reports. Not only are you frustrated with the lack of traceability, but you worry you’ll lose the data or have a continual stream of errors which create issues to resolve with customers and stock you can’t get rid of.
Not Sure How To Manage Cash Flow
While you may be spending time forward planning, it’s challenging managing your cash flow if you don’t have full data transparency or have limited understanding of how your business has been tracking year on year. The result? Excess stock, lack of storage space and slow response to demands.
Staff Are Unproductive
You want to optimise your operations, but your staff are unproductive because they are too overloaded, or they’re not sure what task they should be doing. A lack of integrating employee roles, KPIs and processes into the operations can lead to inefficiencies, errors, and increased cost.
Imagine… increasing profit margins by optimising operations, increasing efficiency, and improving traceability
