Wholesale distributors, more than ever, are caught in the middle between manufacturers who want to sell high and retailers who want to buy low. At the same time, they’re expected to offer highly customized services as a way to prove their value in the supply chain. If you’re a typical wholesale distributor — with old systems and labor-intensive processes — it’s becoming increasingly difficult to protect your profits and defend your business.
Margin Master is a new solution from Capgemini that is based on leveraging the market leading Oracle applications — along with multiple, customized proprietary components — to give the buyers and sellers within a wholesale-distribution organization the real-time information needed to maximize margins for their organization.
The solution covers core processes — order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, supplier and contract management, planning and forecasting, general ledger and financial reporting — giving users the information they need to make immediate adjustments to buying and selling decisions based on variable price-volume relationships.
Best of all, Margin Master is designed to deliver benefits quickly – most often in four to six months.
