The constantly evolving landscape surrounding the distribution industry is providing more and more variables and challenges for your supply chain. With online and mobile orders on a steady rise, distributors need fresh ways to meet these multiple channels of distribution while keeping costs under control. The essence of this change stems from the modern ways for a customer to submit an order. It can be via smart phone, laptop or even the good old call center.
