Technology Game-Changer for Distributors


Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM Generally Available

PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA - June 4, 2015 - Today, I.B.I.S., Inc. announces the availability of Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM. Unlike previous industry solutions that cover portions of a distributor's supply chain, Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM is a truly comprehensive solution. Modern distributor's supply chains have extended and buy decisions are much more complicated and require more information - these buy decisions affect pricing, rebates, vendor support, margins, and more. Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM defines the process and allows a modern distributor to manage their business based on their specific processes and add the distributor's best practices together with applicable industry best practices.

Modern distributors operate differently than their more traditional competitors. They are organizations that are growing, insightful, effective, responsive and collaborative. They use technology to analyze information from multiple sources to enable rapid, effective decisions and responses. And, technology is leveraged by them to improve performance in ways that are far beyond the capabilities of traditional distributors.

Built to augment and round out Microsoft Dynamics® AX technology Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM is comprised of four core modules - Advanced Revenue ManagementTM, Advanced Order ManagementTM, Advanced Inventory ManagementTM, and Advanced Business IntelligenceTM - that can be used individually, or together as a suite.

"Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM is the answer to the question raised by the order to profit process which has redefined the order to cash process. The value in understanding and managing to this new order to profit process is the difference between achieving planned margins or losing money," stated Dominic Telaro, Vice President, Industry Solutions at I.B.I.S., Inc. He continued, "Managing an order to cash process does not guarantee that the cash collected will be profitable. However, managing to an order to profit process will allows distributors to plan and then meet profit goals. Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM allows planning, management and execution to margin expectations throughout the total process, and not just portions of it."

Distributors are interested in robust solutions with each area of functionality covering their entire process - for example pricing - they need to have a solution that allows price build ups together with inventory management applications (consignment inventory, hierarchical allocation and reservations for customers and more) they also need omni channel pricing capabilities (EDI, mobile CSR, in-house CSRs, counter sales, and more). They are looking for solutions they can count on, and being Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD), Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM is a solution that can be trusted.

Matt Petersen, the Industry Market Development Manager at Microsoft North America shared, "The I.B.I.S. Advanced Supply Chain SoftwareTM covers all the needs that a distributor has from planning to purchasing, to order to profit, financials, and specifically, it's strong in the area of rebates and chargebacks which is an area that is of tremendous importance to all distributors. Anyone that takes a deep dive look will find that it meets the needs of all modern wholesale distributors."
