Online Distribution

 

 

 

Comarch SFA Online Distribution is a modern platform for communication and data interchange between producers and their network of distributors.

 

 

The application automatically reports sales data and warehouse inventory.

The reports are generated on a daily basis thanks to a special interface installed in the distributors’ warehouses (integration with distributor’s ERP system).

Functionalities

COMUNICATION APPLICATION

The app provides two-way, secure B2B communication. Producers get information as to warehouse inventories, resales levels and the sales reps' order completion level, while distributors get automatic order flow levels achieved by the producer’s sales reps. Data is then sent to a distributor’s accounting or sales system

INTERFACES

The app provides an interface for the distributor’s financial-accounting system. A reliable partner network of integrators ensures that project interfaces are developed according to Comarch guidelines, and comply with EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) standards. Connecting more than 800 distributors allows us to quickly launch new projects

INTEGRATION

Comarch SFA Online Distribution is integrated with the mobile sales system, Comarch SFA Mobile Sales Force and Online Sales Support. Mutual information flow between systems allows each user to monitor the completion of KPIs (e.g. target sell-out, target sell-in)

DATA NORMALIZATION AND HARMONIZATION

Constant service is ensured, including: matching various records reported by business partners (catalogs: clients, products), the duplication of records, and the development of the constantly updated central register of products and clients. A dedicated team of about 50 consultants ensures the highest quality of data

DATA REPORTING

The data collected from distributors is processed, completed, and unified and then reported to the producer. The available reporting options are: 1) database replication 2) input into a producer’s data warehouse 3) usage of Comarch SFA Online Sales Support

TOTAL CATEGORY

Presentation of the sales share of freely configurable manufacturer product categories as compared to the competition
