An ineffective ERP system could be losing you business

The automotive wholesale industry is facing enormous challenges with the loss of product knowledge as older team members retire, leaving new team members struggling to find solutions.
This means more than knowing if a part is in stock; it is about having streamlined wholesale ERP solutions that can manage and monitor every aspect of your business both operational and strategic.
Markinson says an ERP system can do this and can give you a competitive advantage that can grow your business, and build your reputation. 
It also means your teams are more effective, as many tasks can be automated therefore freeing them up to provide better service to your customers.
For the mid-market automotive wholesale industry the right business solution requires consolidation of key business functions; including managing and monitoring sales, service, marketing, finance, stock control, and customer orders all with a single solution. 
Markinson explains that a successful automated system should:
• Simplify the management and distribution of stock across multiple locations;
• Know when customer demand is changing; 
• Capture knowledge and help to retain your best people;
• Have flexibility when sourcing alternate product solutions;
• Automate regular data updates, such as price changes and stock reordering; 
• Improve your cashflow by identifying slow moving and obsolete stock; and
• Address supplier issues and opportunities.
Having this intelligence at your fingertips can place you ahead of your competitors and unlock your future potential.
Markinson explains that one automated ERP solution that provides all of this is Markinson’s MomentumProERP.
MomentumProERP is a single ERP platform providing streamlined solutions designed for mid-market automotive wholesalers to consolidate and automate key business functions.
The system is adaptable to specific business requirements and is available in a range of flexible delivery options to suit business needs and budget.
Markinson began as a one-man business in 1986, and today is reportedly achieving continuous year-on-year growth.
It says its success lies in its vision to be a key partner to every clients’ transformation, with a focus on being ‘stronger together.’
