Winning during a recession

As uncertainty continues to dominate the economy at the moment, for many distribution operations, winning during a recession is about optimising business processes. Generally optimisation is about improving efficiency, and for most operating supply chains, this will be about maximising profit through preventing the erosion of margin. Key elements in such a strategy are to:

  • Avoid overstocking and follow a just in time approach
  • Ensure the lowest production costs

NetSuite is the correct technology tool

In today’s world, executing such a strategy may be easier said than done; the functions of wholesale distributors are complicated by issues such as rising labour, material and fuel costs; compliance, the environment and ethics. The impact of these issues is exacerbated if you do not have the correct technology tools. Outmoded, on-premise ERP solutions are no match for NetSuite’s up-to-date, cloud-based ERP solution.

Managing inventory and ensuring that restocking is actioned in a timely fashion is next to impossible without access to accurate real-time business intelligence. Similarly it is impossible to ensure the lowest landed cost if there is poor visibility of the cost of production.

Real-time business intelligence and end-to-end visibility

NetSuite provides real-time business intelligence and end-to-end visibility of costs, ensuring that wholesale distributors are able to effectively execute supply chain optimisation strategies.
