The business of a distributor may look simple: buying and selling products. But tracking the inventory, its rotation speed, supplying and on time deliveries are difficult key elements in the distribution business. There are two critical elements that make the rules in the distribution process: on one hand, the warehouses of the distributor need to permanently have available merchandise; on the other hand, the distributor has to be able to deliver the requested products to the merchant, in the quantity and time period agreed under the contract. This process cannot be optimized without robust information solutions, adapted to modern distribution processes.
Most distributors deal with sudden and important RON depreciations, or with stealing from sales representatives. Operating margins and cost control are equally important, many distributors being bankrupt because the international goods suppliers didn't admit that the distribution costs in Romania are higher than the ones in Western Europe or USA.
Under the influence of decreasing the profit margins or new international supply chains, the distribution companies refer to IT solutions to minimize their operational costs, to increase the loyalty of the traditional customers, or to attract new customers by means of a closer relationship and more careful understanding of their needs. This is why Charisma developed a full, perfectly integrated package of software solutions, which covers all the critical processes of a distribution company, regardless of its size or complexity.
In order to provide end-to-end solutions to its customers, Charisma endows its products with a wide range of IT services: consulting, project management, customized software development, system integration, operational support and trainings.
