Would having real-time visibility of inventory across multiple sites and locations help your distribution or wholesale business?

Distribution has always been about building and maintaining customer relationships, but the age of ‘the internet’ and the resulting digital disruption has changed the landscape. Now, the market for wholesale distribution is transforming and there’s an urgency to maximise supply chain performance and deliver an improved customer experience.
