Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

There hasn’t been a better time than now if you are somebody who likes to keep things simple in business. Yet, some businesses face the heat on many fronts. Opting for the right business suite is paramount.

Wholesale Distributors and Manufacturers today face a constant challenge of just in time or real-time ordering and delivery at customer premise as the customer orders are dynamic and not pre-planned. Thus, the time to react for the distributor is very limited and it has to be managed very efficiently using a good order and inventory management on the move, also known as Van Sales. This article analyses the challenges involved and what solution can be applied to address the same.

Challenges with the Traditional Van Sales

The traditional Van Sales approach has been to load the items in the Van in a gross guesswork manner based on the history of the buyer applying the memory and experience of the Van Salesman. This manual approach can have serious limitations, for example, the dependency on the Van salesperson for the customer knowhow, and when he leaves the job, it could be a serious issue, also the manual process would have difficulties in accommodating seasonal variations. 

The other set of challenges are with the order taking process, very frequently it happens that the item was in the Van but hidden somewhere below that the Van salesperson could not see or reach hence the order was missed leading to a lost opportunity. 

And to top it all, the collection efficiency and reminders for payments have been a constant irritant with the Owners of the business, as there is no proper system to look at the ageing and payment histories.
