Customer demands are driving cutting-edge digital transformation strategies

New technologies, changing market dynamics, and increasingly demanding customers are affecting how wholesale businesses operate. Distributors looking to maintain their market lead are being driven to find leading solutions to achieve efficient inventory management, detailed supply chain planning and digitised demand management.

Slow adopters are being left behind

As more wholesale distribution companies learn to leverage new technology and accelerate their services ahead of their competitors, there is an uphill battle for those that act late and hope to catch up.

Operational change can be difficult in wholesale distribution, where traditional structures are typical. Changing the perception of stakeholders within the business is a challenge that wholesale distribution organisations must undertake to effect change and compete in the new tech-led market.

Better connected systems encourage business growth

Distributors need to embrace technology that takes them from a slow and reactive market position to a state that is agile, proactive and insight-driven.

Efficient inventory management, detailed supply chain planning and a comprehensive supplier network are the facilitators that allow wholesale distribution organisations to not only know what’s going on in their business, but also to gain more customer insights to deliver more personalised customer experiences. Which, in turn, leads to enhanced client loyalty and margin growth.
