The distribution industry is an essential link in the supply chain, connecting manufacturing companies and suppliers with various businesses, contractors and partners
Distribution means spreading the product throughout the marketplace such that a large number of people can buy it.
Distribution involves doing the following things:
1. A good transport system to take the goods into different geographical areas.
2. A good tracking system so that the right goods reach at the right time in the right quantity.
3. A good packaging, which takes the wear and tear of transport.
4. Tracking the places where the product can be placed such that there is a maximum opportunity to buy it.
5. It also involves a system to take back goods from the trade.

Poor inventory accuracy contributes to stockout problems. It’s an order fulfillment challenge the pandemic caused for almost a quarter of merchants and happens when the stock in your storeroom inventory doesn’t line up with the volume you’ve recorded electronically.
Capture data at source
Data capture is the collection and storage of data from various sources. This can be done manually or through automated methods. Companies use data capturing to gather information about their customers, products, and business processes. They can then analyze the data to gain insights and make informed decisions.
Faster financial closing
Regardless of a company’s size or financial sophistication, the financial close process can become convoluted. Sequential steps — from recording transactions to generating financial statements — must be done efficiently, collaboratively, and accurately before accountants can close the books on the current fiscal period. Fortunately, there are ways to make this recurring process more manageable and give financial teams and stakeholders the time they need to conduct analyses and make strategic business decisions.

Fast is faster, forward is shorter
Speed is a concept that can mean different things to different people. Some associate it with motion, while others see it as a state of mind. In either case, the idea of speed can be a powerful motivator, pushing us to achieve more, work harder, and strive for success.
