If you’re running a distribution business and growing fast, congratulations! But even when your team is made up of five members, you realize that problems often come with rapid growth. You have to make sure that your business systems and processes can keep up.
We were recently contacted by a client whose distribution company was growing rapidly. The problem was that they were running several disparate systems that couldn’t keep up with the level of work.
As an entry-level company, they started adding platforms to them as they progressed. But as orders increase and businesses grow, their supply chain has become more complex. Without a unified technology suite, they were stuck in data silos, manual processes, and an incomplete picture of their organization.
What they needed was an integrated cloud-based solution that could scale with their rapid growth. And they needed it quickly.
