Getting your stock levels right

multi channel software

Combining trade counter 
and multi-channel software

To an extent, supply chain disruptions are inevitable. But in today’s competitive market, your business must be able to combat these challenges and maintain resiliency.

With an increasing number of merchant and trade counter businesses venturing into the multi-channel and online markets, a lack of data integration exposes businesses in the industry to too many risks and inefficiencies.

Disjointed business management platforms do not provide merchant and trade counters with the level of stock accuracy, supply chain visibility, customer service or forecasting they require to continuously ensure on-schedule order fulfilment.
