DistributionÂ business operates on thin margins for profits. The sales targets areÂ dependable on many factors that are beyond their control at times. So, aÂ marvelous juggling act as distributors try to balance escalating costs,Â customer demands and ever-changing competitive markets. If we go aÂ century back, all the business was done manually which required lots ofÂ time and staff to provide 90% service rate to the customers.
Today,Â the distributors face a different scenario. Majority of them haveÂ computerized but yet are not able to trend with the demanding times.Â Mobile devices give them the much required mobility and latestÂ technology. Still they are hesitantÂ to use it or are completely ignorant of its huge and growing benefitsÂ to their distribution business. Here, I would like to specially pinpointÂ the need of Mobile apps in the business and how they can improveÂ productivity.
Recently,Â I conducted a poll to gather information from 400 odd businesses aboutÂ their use of mobile apps in their day-to-day functioning of theÂ distribution business. The question was very simple and just asked ifÂ they used mobile apps for their business. The results were quite shocking and a goodÂ eye-opener. The image listed below clearly highlights the need forÂ mobile apps and at the same time awareness about its use in the trade.
AboveÂ all, there are businesses which in a search of mobile app solutions andÂ understand its efficiency and urgency. They know that if they need toÂ survive the competition and continue with the juggling act then theyÂ need a better and gen-next solution. Distribution business will have to be 100% Mobile enabled to stay ahead in the time and delight their customers in real-time.
