Benefits of Infor Distribution FACTS:

Supply chain management: As a distribution company, you sit at a critical intersection in the supply chain. You’re responsible for efficiently moving and managing goods and materials, while finding flexible ways to foresee customer requirements and even get ahead of the curve on demand and supply. Distribution FACTS has the right features that will enhance the way you sell, source, and deliver goods to customers:

  • Sales orders—Give users a fast and accurate tool to manage and monitor the entire sales process from contracts to quotes to invoices.
  • Inventory control—Allow purchasing agents and warehouse managers to manage by exception numerous distributor functions, including automated replenishment, cycle counting, and warehouse transfers.
  • Purchase orders—Manage the purchase of stock and non-stock orders, ensuring that purchase order prices are correct, and vendor-item costs and vendor costs contracts are maintained.
  • Warehouse management—Improve the efficiency of receiving, put-away, moving, counting, picking, and shipping to increase warehouse productivity and accuracy

Key Enhancements

  • A new Alert Control Center, which automatically creates and displays a user-specific checklist of action items. By consolidating tasks into a single, easily accessible location, users get a much-needed level of visibility to prioritize more pressing assignments, ensuring that urgent tasks are completed quickly and efficiently.
  • Integration directly with CenPOS, a payment processing application that allows distributors to accept a wider range of payment methods.
  • Decision-makers can now set minimum order quantities for specific warehouses or individual products. This option prevents users from entering sales orders that do not meet volume guidelines from suppliers and can be used to direct employees to pull inventory from a particular location.
  • More advanced lead time functionality for seasonal items. This gives distributors the agility to better accommodate fluctuating demand and helps to prevent businesses from stocking excess inventory.
