Launch package

Kitting and Assembly

Companies come to SAPDistribution.com because they want or need more than basic distribution functionality to grow their business. The Kitting and Assembly Package is designed for companies that need to perform assembly activities for kitting, light manufacturing, or white labeling of products.

This service package includes coaching and advice on how to configure:

  • Bills of material that define components for assembly or disassembly
  • Production orders that tell your team what they need to perform
  • Multiple units of measure per item

 

For a low fixed fee, your team receives the additional coaching and configuration guidance necessary to add this easy-to-use functionality. These functions can be performed by adding the assembly stock or in conjunction with a specific customer order.

Sales Opportunities

In a business-to-business (B2B) environment, you need to track your customers’ and prospects’ activities. Customer relationship management (CRM) tools for tracking opportunities, sales stages, competitive information, and much more are built right into the Start package. 

With this solution bundle, you can grow your business and get a quick return on your systems investment. Whether it is deepening your penetration into existing accounts or loading a list of prospects for landing as customers, SAP can help you manage your sales opportunities. You can:

  • Set up activities for nurturing your opportunities
  • Create notes with reminders
  • Schedule meetings with customers/prospects on your calendar

 

The system can also help manage your sales team by tracking salesperson budget versus actual sales and other information needed by your sales manager. Using CRM tools ensures that you capture more business and increase your top line.

Mobile Sales

When your sales force is on the road, all your inventory information should be available to them on their cell phones or mobile tablets – and with Start & Grow mobile sales, it is. The mobile sales functionality contains all the major functions, and they’re built directly into SAP Business One. In addition, you get great mobile-native features such as:

  • One-click dialing or texting to your contacts
  • Open addresses in maps and get directions
  • Look up special prices and status of all quotes, orders, and deliveries in process

 

With live, direct access to your company information, your sales team has up-to-the-minute information for their customers and prospects from the road. Translation: they close more deals.

Field Service

When you distribute goods that require after-sales tracking and field/return service, the Service package provides those extra functions.

Key functions include:

  • Creation and tracking of service requests from customers or vendors
  • Serialized item tracking for warranty tracking
  • Service calls tied to specific sales items or general service call functionality
  • Solutions knowledge base for search by item
  • Return Merchandise Authorization

For larger service organizations, you can track your technicians in groups and calls assigned to a general queue. Service calls can create specific activities for one or more technicians and much more; in addition, powerful reporting keeps you up to speed on how long it takes to resolve calls. You can also create alerts, such as for expiring warranties for extended warranty sales.

B2C E-Commerce

Do you sell to consumers? Do you have a web store? With SAPDistribution.com, you can have a fully integrated web store that takes orders 24/7 for a fraction of the cost of a salesperson!

B2B E-Commerce

More and more business customers want to place their own orders, track their status, and work independently. With the business-to-business (B2B) E-Commerce service, your SAP system can be seamlessly integrated with the Shopify commerce solution. The B2B E-Commerce service includes: 

  • Uploading of SAP customers to the web store
  • Automated creation of business partners in SAP from new customer registration on the web store
  • Additional web store terms, including gift cards and other forms of payment
  • Additional options for item availability in the store
