More information about IBS Enterprise7:

Scale your sales

Distribution companies invariably operate in increasingly complex markets, with tightening margins, greater competition and a never-ending focus on sales and improved customer service. To help facilitate a greater scalability around sales execution, and in response to significant customer requests, IBS Enterprise7 now includes a new integrated best-in-class and world-recognized CRM offering. Additional and significant enhancements have also been developed to deliver more scalable e-commerce solutions, including a sophisticated portlet architecture for social media and customer self-service.

Scale your market

Pushing into new markets and deepening market penetration and share has become commonplace in wholesale and distribution, with companies needing to extend their basis of operations as well as their range of product and services. In short, today’s demand-driven distributor needs to be scalable and global. IBS Enterprise7 helps simplify that challenge by delivering a single offering but with localized language, business regulations and cultural facets built in. IBS Enterprise7 helps companies easily expand their business in other countries, with a localized system that still provides a consolidated view, visibility across territories and common application platform. For example IBS Enterprise7 includes business processes that allow distributors to sell products across different legal companies, whether the goods are stored in their own warehouses, within the company group or by a supplier.

Scale your execution

Increased volumes and more complex networks mean that execution capabilities need to grow. IBS Enterprise7 includes a new role-based user interface with dynamic and scalable integration to different applications and web-pages, allowing user familiarity and rollout in the fastest possible time.

Scale your efficiency

Increasing transaction and data volumes can in turn lead to out-of-control inefficiencies. IBS Enterprise7 ensures organizations never fall into the pit of growth paralysis, with many new automated processes. These include automated customer and supplier rebate processes and a dynamic tool to rationalize the supplier invoice process, resulting in increased productivity and significant time savings.

Scale your control

The specific processes of wholesale and distribution require specific management, reporting and controls; we call it Distribution Intelligence. A set of integrated planning, real-time monitoring and performance improvement tools, Distribution Intelligence provides everything needed to ensure companies stay in control of their business, no matter how small or large.
