Restaurant equipment distributors provide needed equipment to sandwich shops, fine-dining restaurants, caterers, bakeries, and other eateries as they need to get the equipment orders sent out on time and under budget. When looking at expanding their companies into global markets, distributors are constantly on the lookout for ways to make improvements to their operations. They want to spur more productive processes that focuses on reducing waste, saving money and being highly efficient.
They may seek out to have better inventory management, improve their customer service policies, or lower the amount of customer backorders. Yet while focused on improving fulfillment rates, other areas of the distribution center, such as customer service or accounting, may not get the same attention. Efficiency strategies and programs are not being carried over to other departments in the distribution center. For a more company-wide solution, restaurant equipment distributors are searching for more scalable software solutions.
