Oracle solves the most complex problems for wholesale distributors

Outpace the competition with new business models

With industry convergence, wholesale distributors need to prepare for M&A-driven growth by simplifying and modernizing their IT applications and infrastructure. By replacing legacy solutions with an automated and integrated solution, you can easily scale and pivot to higher-margin business models with new services, improving the customer experience and gaining a competitive advantage.

Optimize profit margins with intelligent process automation

Wholesale distributors often run at large volumes with costly, employee-intensive operations. Process automation can help you boost speed, productivity, and operational efficiency. By automating order fulfillment, rebate program management, and warehouse and transportation management, you can proactively manage your complex mix of channels, products, pricing, profit margins, and operations while reducing order-to-cash cycle time.

Improve supply chain resilience

Distributors must respond quickly to ever-changing demand, supply, and market conditions. With an integrated, connected supply chain, you can create a resilient operating network. Optimize operations and enhance visibility across business processes to make better decisions around supply planning, procurement, inventory, demand forecast, logistics, and workforce planning.

Enhance customer satisfaction and operational efficiency with connected logistics

Distributors can no longer rely on the traditional “pick, pack, and ship” model to keep their customers happy. B2B buyers now want a digital, B2C customer experience—perfect order and delivery, direct to consumer, omnichannel, and subscriptions. Leverage AI-embedded, analytics-based connected logistics solutions to manage perfect delivery and increase customer satisfaction.

Elevate the employee experience to attract and nurture talent

Distributors need strong recruiting, HR, and talent management tools to address the shortage of qualified talent to meet today’s automation-driven distribution. A unified finance, supply chain, and HR platform can help you improve recruitment and retention and optimize workforce planning.
