Taking a Lesson from Big-box Retailers:
The World's Distribution Pros

Big-box retailers are pros at managing the almost mind-boggling complexity of ordering, tracking, receiving, distributing, and selling thousands of different products from all over the world. Interested to know how they pull it off? Hint: a lot of it turns on the software solutions they use—interestingly, the same kinds of software that are available to you. Take a lesson in distribution from the best in the business, in today's feature blog post.

It isn't only big companies that can benefit from ERP finance and accounting solutions. Small to midsized businesses (SMBs) can also see their revenues increase, productivity go up, and costs go down with the right ERP solution. Here's a handy, common-sense guide to understanding ERP from the SMB point of view: the ERP market, the benefits, the features, the costs, the vendors, and more.

Creating one company out of two through merger or acquisition almost always requires you to migrate the two businesses into a common enterprise application. In these cases there's a real need for speed—but can the implementation be done quickly? The answer is yes, sometimes in as little as nine weeks, as you'll discover in today's feature white paper/case study.
