Most people might think of the distribution business as buy-and-sell. But distribution really gets really complex in the industrial space. You have challenges such as price and rebate management, buying groups, rush orders, and millions of SKUs. Unlike manufacturing, you might have very different planning for your warehouses, including push and pull-based replenishment. The bin structures are so complex that they may contain layers and layers of information to ensure that the warehouse crew is able to manage their operations smoothly. So what do industrial distribution businesses need to know about selecting software? Also, how do industrial distribution software such as Epicor Prophet 21, Epicor Eclipse, and Infor CloudSuite Distribution SX.e differ?
In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to conduct an independent review of Infor CloudSuite Distribution/SX.e's capabilities. We covered many grounds, including their strength in the industrial distribution space and why it is purpose-built for certain micro-verticals of industrial distribution industries. Finally, we discussed their capabilities such as universal search, push, and pull-based replenishment, rebates, order types, and bin structure.
