standard ERP software for wholesalers.

We offer a

It is impossible to imagine a modern trading company without a good and reliable ERP solution. It is one of the most important foundations for the continued existence of the company. It is not only important that the ERP software can map trading functions, but also that it provides company-specific functions. Our experience shows: With apps and minimal customization, this can also be achieved very successfully with a standard ERP solution such as Dynamics 365 Business Central. The standard ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central forms the basis of our solution for wholesalers. This enables you to network all relevant departments or the entire supply chain (core and support processes) and obtain a 360° company overview.

Opportunities for wholesalers include in-house production and packaging, value-added services and service expansion. All in all, high-quality data is considered a decisive competitive advantage. After all, customers expect high-quality online stores and professional competence with regard to the products offered. To this end, we specifically dovetail procurement, disposition, warehouse management and sales with the service and production areas. In addition, we automate standardized processes so that you avoid unnecessary work in all business processes.

Standard ERP software instead of rigid industry solutions.

No industry solution

We do not believe in industry solutions because they are overloaded and rigid. Developed from individual solutions, industry solutions contain many functions that you do not need at all. Furthermore, industry solutions are not expandable if you build up new business areas or grow. As a result, you are restricted, bound and inflexible.

Standard solution, add-ons and individual adaptions

Instead of developing industry solutions, we always orientate ourselves on the standard ERP solution Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision) and use other technologies such as Microsoft Office 365, the Microsoft Power Platform and industry-specific add-ons. If processes cannot be mapped, our experienced developers will program individual adaptations for you. This distinguishes us significantly from our competitors.

The structure is modular. Your system remains updatable and flexible, so that you can map extensions quickly and easily. And you remain independent of the provider.

Specialist in wholesale trade

Competitive pressure pushes you to cut costs and your customers demand even better service? We know the challenges facing wholesalers very well and improve them by networking all company departments.

So wholesalers are faced with the challenge of optimizing and automating their business. Great importance is attached to improving extensive supply chains in harmony with industry, trade and retail. In addition, the areas of trade and production are moving ever closer together. Efficient IT processes create great competitive advantages at this point. Secure these with our ERP software for wholesale.

  • falling prices and margins
  • management of extensive supply chains (including industry, trade, retail)
  • lack of a basis for decision-making (not all business transactions in view)
  • high costs
  • permanent availability of goods and ad hoc supply readiness
  • continuous product range expansion
  • interlocking of internal and external processes
  • increasing national and international competition

Our solution is a modular structure.

In the first step we would like to map your requirements using the system standard. If this is not possible, we use add-ons of us and our partners in the second step. Although there is a wide range of add-ons available, it is of course always possible that the ideal module is not available for every requirement. For this reason we go one step further. In the third step, our experienced developers take over the creation of individual customizations for you, which are made according to the wishes of your company.

Despite the implementation of customizations, you can still rely on system updates. Enjoy the associated security and flexibility.

The basis of our work is the industry-independent ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision).

3 Individual adaptions

Do you have very specific business processes that cannot be mapped either in the standard system or by an add-on? No problem. Our experienced developers will find a solution. The following is a selection of examples of customizations we have already implemented for our wholesalers. However, if your requirements are not met by these, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Assembly

    If your company does not have its own order picking, you can benefit from our individual customisation. Because in the standard Dynamics 365 Business Central/Dynamics NAV system, an assembly order is not broken down into its individual items until the picking stage. However, thanks to our programming, this happens one step before.

  • Collection interface

    Wholesalers often outsource the collection of payments. To do this, we simply implement an interface to a collection company.

    make contact

  • Elster interface

    We program an interface for Elster exports for you.

  • Integrated release rights

    We implement an extension for you, with which you can determine regulations for integrated release rights. The handling is very intuitive and the tool is easily adaptable to the conditions of different industries and companies. Employees can see at any time which criteria have not yet been met and still need to be adjusted.

    The bottom line is that you improve your process reliability and take an important step towards the paperless office.

    make contact

  • Multi-stage order picking

    To save walking distances and thus time and costs, several goods issues are combined in one picking order. For example, goods issues are grouped together whose associated articles are stored on the same shelf or at least close together. The warehouse employee then uses a cart with several color-coded crates for picking. One crate is intended for one order. The most efficient route is then determined by the ERP system and the warehouse employee receives instructions via a mobile device as to which shelf he has to walk to, which articles he has to take with him, and in which of the colored boxes the respective article belongs.

  • Permanent inventory

    In the processing of inventories on a key date, business operations are often closed for hours or days. External service providers are also used for counts. This effort can be minimized by a permanent inventory. We offer you a solution which can be used parallel to the daily business in Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision). The inventory employee receives a personal stack with his counting lists still to be processed (export from Dynamics 365 Business Central). After the count – for example, using a scanner – the data is registered and transferred back to the Dynamics 365 Business Central standard.

  • Shipment tracking

    For shipment tracking, we will build you an interface to the product Comsol Multiship and thus a modular shipping system with which you can easily handle shipping processes with different parcel delivery companies and carriers.

    A direct interface is also possible, for example to DPD, so that you can track your shipments optimally.

    make contact

  • Tour planning

    You can map a route planning in Dynamics 365 Business Central. You assign individual items and therefore sales lines to a vehicle and trigger picking and goods issue from the route planning.

    For optimal route planning, we implement an interface to third-party software (e.g. Wanko). This allows you to optimize your tours – even across drivers.

  • Webshop

    To enable you as a wholesaler to sell your products online, we program an interface to third-party software (e.g. shopware, XT-Commerce, Intershop). In this way, you interlock your processes.

TOO COMPLICATED?

Our technology interpreter Theo explains.

Think of it like a burger. You have a base that is the same for every customer. You can make small changes to this base (e.g. different dough such as multi-grain or sourdough). In addition, each customer can put together the toppings as they wish. Depending on preference and need.

This is also the case with our solution. You receive the standard product Dynamics 365 Business Central. We realize many projects  in the standard solution – but sometimes small changes are necessary. And in addition, our customers purchase apps from us or our partners.
