ERP in Wholesale and Distribution: Extending the Enterprise to Extend Profits

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is currently used by 92% of wholesalers and distributors.

In these industries, costs must be contained while working with the extended enterprise to facilitate communication both up and down the supply chain.

This report, based on survey responses from 99 wholesalers and distributors, provides a guide for utilizing ERP to communicate internally and exte rnally while cutting costs and extending profit margins.
