Wholesale & Distribution Industry

Streamline Operations | Control Costs | Provide Excellent Customer Service

Wholesale & Distribution Industry

The challenges you face

Every day, you have to balance supply with demand. At the same time, you have to search for new markets and new suppliers while facing competition and pressure on margins.

Streamlining operations, controlling costs and providing excellent customer service through efficient order fulfilment and after-sales service are key to your business.

At Mercurius we know that to be successful you need short lead times on sales cycles. You need to get stock into your warehouse and out to your customers quickly, efficiently and at the right price.

You need accurate information from all aspects of your business on which to base your decisions.

Your watchwords are:

  • inventory and stock management
  • pricing and margin reporting
  • sales analysis
  • import costing (landed costs)
  • multi-currency
  • supply chain management
  • barcoding
  • warehouse management
  • returns management

In addition, you may need batch and serial number traceability, kitting functionality, alternative units of measure and so the list can go on.

Mercurius’ industry specific experience

We have implemented numerous accounting and business management solutions combined with robust infrastructure solutions within the wholesale and distribution industry.

Distributors in technology, fashion, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals have benefited from our expertise.

Barcode Scanner Technology

 Are you tired of manually entering goods-in into NAV? We would be too.
That’s why we’ve developed a customisation for NAV’s tablet app that allows you to use the tablet’s camera to scan barcodes directly into NAV, harnessing the power of NAV 2018’s OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. This not only saves you time and effort but also reduces errors through rekeying. The customisation is compatible with any tablet running Android or iOS, often making it a cheaper solution than an additional handheld scanner.

Functionality you need

We have worked with many distributors over many years and have developed a specific platform for companies who operate as distributors and wholesalers.

Our solutions are based on market-leading Microsoft or SAP platforms and provide the functionality you need to run a successful business in today’s competitive environment.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV

A market leading, growth enabling Microsoft Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for SMBs.

Mercurius TailorMade

Giving businesses in the Fashion & Apparel industry control over their inventory, procurement, sales and financials.

What success looks like to our customers

Since moving to Mercurius in 2016 I have used their online web portal to log any support cases. The system is simple to use. It allows me to easily prioritise my cases. Additional information can be quickly attached to help support the case. The portal is linked directly to my email address so I’m informed of any updates immediately. There is the added benefit of looking at closed cases, in case you need to see the solution to a problem that has been fixed previously. The portal has very quickly become an essential tool for our business.

Our partnership with Mercurius IT has been great for both the companies. We hired them more than 3 years ago for SAP Upgrade and then never looked back. Mercurius has successfully delivered a number of strategic projects such as SAP R/3 4.6C to SAP ECC 6.0 upgrade, Reimplementation of CO-PA, Optimisation of Supply Chain and Implementation of SAP CRM 7.0. Mercurius has been also providing us reliable SAP application, development and BASIS support on a blended Onshore/ Offshore model. Mercurius offers us a pragmatic and value alternative for SAP services!
