The snack food market is constantly transforming: changing customer buying habits, a greater emphasis on healthy eating, and ongoing evaluation of different distribution types are just a few of the trends you’re trying to keep up with.
- Your route accounting system and mobile devices are outdated, slow and cumbersome to operate and maintain.
- You don’t have visibility and control of customer cash and check collections, and you need up-to-date accounts receivable statements to share with customers.
- You’re concerned with inventory control and want to leverage historical order and delivery trends more.
- Your mobile sales staff doesn’t have the real-time customer or promotional information they need to sell effectively.
- You need a better method of reconciliation at the end of a day; a real-time feedback loop and order-to-cash cycle.
- You’d like to be able to use DEX/EDI to better work with larger retailers.
