End of day report

In the alcoholic beverage industry, delivery is particularly demanding due to the need to minimize the time products spend in the supply chain, not to mention the fierce competition your industry faces.

Opting for the computerization of your processes or for an upgrade of your DSD solution will help you better position your business to allow it to optimize processes and remain competitive.

Our DSD solution reminds the driver of the activities to prioritize, and the messages from the office before leaving the warehouse and after each of his deliveries will help him efficiently go through every part of his day.

Alcoholic products industries excel at bringing their products to the market and serving their customers. However, it is not uncommon for these steps to be accomplished by relying on already overworked accounting and support staff to perform manual checks. So they have to go through a lot of documents, often order by order, to ensure that the product delivered and the records that accompany the returns match the money that was collected and the invoices that were generated.

An automated DSD system therefore allows the administrative staff of alcoholic beverage companies to concentrate exclusively on activities with higher added value, such as the management of the day’s routes, which present a gap that must be reconciled.

The DSD offers an interesting ROI to manufacturers and/or distributors of alcoholic products since it allows for better management of orders and routes. As the central visibility of sales and field operations is improved, it can aid in route optimization calculations offering the potential to save time and fuel costs.

Return on investment can also be generated by your alcoholic beverages business’ ability to serve a customer more efficiently as well as the ability to devote more time to sales or prospecting activities.

Ultimately, automated and smarter controls translate to more accurate deliveries with fewer returns, resulting in better customer retention and consistent, if not enhanced, income streams.
