Furniture ERP software for distributors, manufacturers, and online retailers
The furniture industry is in a state of constant change with the latest trends and innovations always just around the corner. For small to mid-sized furniture distributors, manufacturers, and online retailers, success relies heavily on keeping popular, quality inventory in stock and available at affordable prices until the next shift in demand.
As the furniture industry evolves, it is becoming increasingly important for furniture distributors to operate multiple sales channels – a physical location, web stores, and EDI trading – to stay in the game alongside their competitors. Furniture distributors are turning to technology, specifically furniture ERP software, to provide the tools they need to compete in today’s hyper-competitive environment.
A multi-channel sales operation can quickly become overwhelming with orders pouring in from all different directions without an inventory and order management system in place. Beyond accurate order management, whether from a direct channel sale or online, swift order fulfillment is critical in placing furniture distributors ahead of their competitors.
Implementing an affordable all-in-one solution with a bi-directional QuickBooks integration is the answer to optimizing daily operations for furniture distributors, manufacturers, and online retailers by lowering costs, reducing overhead, and increasing profitability.
Furniture ERP software with powerful inventory, order and mobile warehouse management, dynamic web store and EDI capabilities
Maintaining inventory is no easy task, especially when a variety of colors, materials, prices, and styles are taken into account. Without heightened visibility into inventory, mistakes are bound to happen. With an inventory management system in place, knowing what is available, running low, not selling well, back-ordered or already committed becomes essential information and it’s available with a few simple clicks instead of a warehouse scurry to verify.
With an inventory management system:
- Monitor inventory in real-time
- Control an unlimited number of products
- Set alerts for low-stock
- Receive automated suggested reorder amounts
- Easily search through inventory by different product IDs or descriptions
- Automate purchase orders
- Access detailed inventory history
- Enter and access detailed product information
