Distribution Management

What Is Distribution Management?

Distribution management is a process that controls the path of goods from the manufacturer to the consumer. The method of delivering goods from the manufacturer to the customer is relatively straightforward, however, if suppliers, distributors, and retailers are involved in the process, the path becomes more complex, and in this case, distribution management is necessary to ensure the delivery of goods to the customer on-time.

Distribution management includes various processes consisting of raw material supplier management, packaging, warehousing, inventory, supply chain, and logistics; in other words, all the necessary functions for high-quality and safe transit of goods to their destination.

First of all, proper management of the distribution of goods ensures the uninterrupted business delivery of goods or services to the customer; poor-quality processes lead to customer dissatisfaction and affect the company’s image.

Why is Proper Distribution Management Critical?

With increasing competition and various goods on the market, there is a growing need for fast transportation to provide quality services. The main task of Distribution Management is the organization and management of all processes for timely delivery of goods to the buyer with the least amount of waste. More importantly, it must be done promptly and without delay. Proper management directly affects the profitability of the organization. In addition to increasing profitability, distribution management reduces the amount of spending, as it reduces warehousing costs since goods are delivered on time and are not stored in large stocks, taking up space in the warehouse.

The distribution management platform is a platform to stimulate, support, and manage all the stock movements of your business that should occur throughout your retail and distribution network and company.

What changes can your business expect from implementing DMS (Distributor Management System)?

● Control over the distributor’s work. The DMS system provides precise control over the distributor’s work, changes made to the nomenclature, accounting books, re-order levels, etc.;
● Inventory management. Thanks to tracking stocks as they move from the distributor, the ability to monitor their condition, including damage and failures, is to avoid excess and shortage of goods;
● Increased sales. Automated software, including DMS, allows integration with the sales department, which has an indelible impact on sales, the level of competitiveness, and brand awareness.

We bring clarity to Complexity

We design visible, feasible and achievable solutions and manage them for you. Unilog defines the SOW, identifying unique customer needs in the replenishment process. Inbounding 100,000 serials or a testing a server requires a different approach. Dealing with a defective unit inbound or field return is not the same as a PO inbound or a WH transfer inbound. Outbound of a service order is different than an FMCG with expiration date outbound. Shipping & tracking of small parcel or full tracks can lead to different flows and process.

Our SOW process focuses on the business challenge and its unique needs. Once we’ve gained an in-depth understanding of the challenges & needs, we design a unique solution to best support them.
