Distribution software manages everything from order processing and inventory control to accounting, purchasing and customer service, supply chain management, sales, customer relationship management, and finance management.

More sophisticated solutions can cover areas such as advanced forecasting & replenishment, warehouse management, pick, pack & shipping, EDI or Electronic Data Interchange, Trade Spend Management and more.

Distribution software helps companies to manage internal and external resources efficiently by minimizing stockouts but ensuring overstocking doesn't occur as well.

Numerous ERP vendors such as Acumatica, Microsoft Dynamics NAV-X, Netsuite, and SAP ERP offer distribution software as part of their ERP system.
