ERP-ONE+ Ease of Use

March 21, 2018

Wax on. Wax off.” While evoking fond memories of a quintessential 80’s movie, this phrase speaks to the power of simplicity when learning something new. Software, as it turns out, should be no different.

One of the guiding principles of Distribution One’s software has been and continues to be usability. In light of all the other beneficial features and integrations, why do we place such a high value on usability? Simply put: user success.

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) business software exists to fundamentally enhance wholesale and distribution efficiency, productivity, and profitability. From ordering and financial management to inventory and CRM, ERP software encompasses the full range of supply chain functionality. We understand that in order to expand productivity and reduce costs, the software must provide easy operation and navigation for its users.

With that founding principle, the ERP-ONE+ programs and associated suite of mobile apps are designed to be easily understood and operated by every user no matter their department or software experience.


Dashboard+ Distributor Analytics

Upon startup, users are greeted by color-coded items identifying actionable content. Dashboard+ also displays vital information and visualizations featuring customized KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). When viewed as a whole, Dashboard+ presents the user with all the relevant data needed to start off the business day.


User-friendly interface

Utilizing a clean interface, ERP-ONE+ enables users to quickly identify programs and locate individual entry fields. Color-coded programs provide effortless navigation between multiple applications. Moreover, recently used programs populate a quick navigation window while popular programs are self-ranked within a user’s dropdown menus.


Data accessibility

From any entry field, users can enter a string of keywords to quickly return related order, customer, and vendor data. One-click drilldown to related data fosters a seamless flow both in-program and between applications.



Beyond the intuitive interface and one-click drilldowns, ERP-ONE+ also provides in-program tools to help drive learnability. Tapping the F1 key within a field opens a box with the field description, and the F2 key generates a list of related self-help documentation.


Through 20 years and over 8000 end users, our software continues to advance customer success through the correct application of user experience and usability. Listening to our customers ensures that our software furnishes every user with the right tools they need to streamline their own productivity.
