ERP for Trading Companies in UAE
Why is ERP required for Trading Companies?
A typical trading company buys products at the best price, stores them and sells them to customers to make a profit. It may look very simple if you read it but there are many things behind the scenes to run a successful trading business.
Usually, a trading company faces many challenges in the day to day operations. It has to manage the stock, deal with suppliers, and deliver to customers within deadline with competitive pricing. Buying at the best price, keeping the right stock levels, providing salespeople with the right information, and providing the best pricing to customers are some of the minimal requirements for a successful trading company.
