MetaFast distribution software is used by UK wholesalers and suppliers to retailers and online retailers
In an environment of global competition, increasing item and channel complexity and decreasing margins, distribution companies need a strong distribution business management solution to support their operations. The distribution software system should provide inventory and warehouse management tools married to powerful financial and sales applications. It should integrate customer, order and financial information and the distribution software should support complex item structures and inventory tracking, warehouse layout and use, pick/pack processes, labelling, shipping, and order tracking.
For repetitive tasks, or those dependent on the successful completion of an earlier process – such as order distribution, generation of picking lists or despatch notes, transport carrier assignment or customer invoicing – which are labour-intensive and inefficient, the distribution software programme can ensure that these jobs are automated or batch processed to save time, reduce errors, and focus employee attention on satisfying customers.
Investments in inventory can be maximised by improving decisions related to item acquisition, storage, handling and replenishment. Quick access to, and analysis of, key business information can help to improve decision-making. Accurate and timely information allows managers to plan effectively and make better-informed business decisions. It will also help the company to comply with regulations or customer requests – ranging from Sarbanes-Oxley to product tracking and full traceability.
