Being three months into 2018, software updates are crucial to ensuring that a distributor’s ERP software investment continues to deliver ROI. Updates broaden functionality and maximize operational efficiencies which are essential to sustained cost reductions and increased profitability.
As with ERP solutions, not all updates are created equal. Many ERP vendors release product updates but most come with a crippling price tag attached. Other vendors hand off their upgrade process to third parties lacking customer knowledge and responsiveness or that provide upgrades on a yearly basis. Because distributors and wholesalers deserve better, Distribution One operates under a different model.
With Distribution One, customers can set their calendar by our software release schedule. Providing quarterly updates enables our customers to enjoy the latest beneficial features and technologies of our comprehensive ERP-ONE+ software. We do this to ensure our customers continue to run at their peak performance now, not a year from now. We also believe in the value of sharing. By this we mean that if a customer requests a software enhancement that we feel delivers true value to our entire customer base, everyone receives the update.
Finally, there’s the question of cost. Unlike many ERP vendors, our quarterly ERP-ONE+ software updates are provided at no additional fee for ERP-ONE+ customers with a service plan. We respect the importance of ROI and actively work to maximize our customers’ productivity and profitability.
If you’re ready to experience our proven ERP-ONE+ solution that includes quarterly software updates with a paid service plan, Distribution One stands ready to serve you. To start a conversation, call 856.380.0629, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up for a software demonstration.
