When it comes to technology, these days it’s all about mobile. No longer just for personal use; everywhere you turn mobile devices and tablets are being used among businesses across all industries for a multitude of purposes. This holds true for distribution businesses as well.

Here are three ways mobile is transforming the distribution marketplace:

 

Account Management

With the proper mobile solution in place, your sales teams and account managers can easily access customer accounts. From a mobile device or tablet, they can pull up an account to quickly answer questions, check inventories and even place an order. Customers will notice the efficiency of your team and place you above the competition.

  

Inventory Management

By using mobile devices and tablets, inventory can be accessed from any point of the distribution process. Whether from the showroom floor, in the warehouse or on the delivery truck, your teams will know first-hand where your inventory is, what is available and what needs to be replenished. This data will undoubtedly help streamline your business.

 

Real Time Data 

When your business utilizes mobile, you gain access to data from anywhere, at any time. No longer is there a need to be stuck inside an office waiting by the phone or computer. Your team will be able to get delivery confirmations as they happen. You can effectively manage your team hands on, making sure they are on track with their responsibilities and being as productive as possible. With access to real time data, you’ll ensure your entire system is running efficiently.
