How can DMS be used to support overall business performance and growth of FMCG?
Managing the extensive cycle of the supply chain is a tremendous challenge for FMCG companies in tracing the dispatch of products from the warehouse to the end customer. And when the monitoring is done manually, sales and distribution complexities are likely to hit the rock bottom causing significant financial and reputation damage. Keeping a tab of the multi-tier distributor and retailer ecosystem is of vital importance to ensure error-free communication, monitoring, inventory management, and fair pricing to meet customer satisfaction and in turn, improve business performance.
What is a Distribution Management System?
A Distribution Management System (DMS) is specialized software to streamline the supply chain and logistics and enable complete visibility of secondary sales. To put simply, a distribution management system (DMS) is your all-in-one software solution to seamlessly track and manage different funnels of sales and distribution with guaranteed 100% accuracy and transparency.
GoSales is one such feature-packed advanced sales force automation (SFA) software that you can integrate with your company’s Distribution Management System through an open Application Program Interface (API) to transform the entire facet of sales and distribution at your fingertips.
