NetSuite for Wholesale Distribution

Optimize purchasing, warehouse management, and delivery with NetSuite for wholesale distribution 


Purpose-Built Cloud ERP for Wholesale Distribution

NetSuite offers comprehensive process automation across the wholesale distribution life cyclefrom purchasing all the way through delivery. NetSuite eliminates disjointed workflows that impede efficiency and scalability by uniting all core operational systems for inventory, warehousing, order orchestration, shipping, accounting, and analytics into a single cloud platform.  

    Purpose-built distribution capabilities optimize productivity, accuracy, and customer service as orders flow rapidly from procurement to final delivery. Key features include barcode scanning and printing, serial/lot number tracking, multiple warehouse inventory transfers, direct 3PL system integration to orchestrate fulfilment and tight links to route planning solutions.  



    How Outdated Systems Hold Distributors Back

    Wholesale distributors must synchronize complex, high-volume supply chain operations while running on razor-thin margins. However, distributors often face serious roadblocks from outdated systems and information silos that impede productivity and responsiveness. Common distribution pain points include:  

      • Limited inventory visibility resulting in frequent stockouts and overstocks
      • No integration between warehouse, order, and delivery data
      • Difficult to optimize delivery routes and logistics
      • Manual order processing slowing throughput and increasing errors
      • Reliance on Excel for reporting hampers data-driven decisions
      • On-premise software lacks flexibility and cuts into margins
