Tailor your back office to the wholesale environment
Brightpearl is designed to help you efficiently manage and grow your wholesale or distribution business in the face of fierce competition, ever-more demanding customers and a highly uncertain trading environment.
While all types of ‘retail’ business have to do three core things with an order – invoice, take payment and ship - the complexity is in the detail and the sequencing of each of these steps. Force-fitting software designed for consumer-facing retail to handle wholesale and distribution workflows just doesn’t make sense.
Brightpearl is used by hundreds of wholesalers and distributors, and the functionality and workflows have been honed to fit the unique requirements of businesses selling to other businesses.

Growing your wholesale business
Success in wholesale today is all about flexibility and efficiency. Being able to offer your customers the order, delivery, payment and service options they want can make all the difference, and doing so efficiently means you can grow while protecting the bottom line.
Be open for business
Ecommerce for B2B customers is gaining popularity at speed, which presents challenges if your systems can’t cater for different channels. Brightpearl’s complete solution means you can do business via any chosen channel – be it online, phone, EDI, in the field and at trade shows.
Demanding wholesale clients require fast responses so your customer-facing staff need instant access to all the data needed to answer questions - from product and shipment status to billing, credit and balance information.

Complete account management
For new orders, sales staff can see the credit limit and current outstanding balance for the client, immediately informing them of any potential issues. Similarly, accounts receivable staff can view a single real-time report showing all outstanding accounts (or debtors), with line-by-line status information including ageing information, and with one-click, can send emails or text message alerts.
The built-in CRM capability enables you to keep all account information in one place, fully integrated with your order history and accounts.
Ecommerce for wholesale customers
Further, with Brightpearl’s customer portal you can provide your wholesale customers with real-time statement information, individual order status as well as the option to make payments on account, giving your customers a complete self-service capability.
For sales staff on the road, visiting customers or at trade shows, Brightpearl’s iPad-based POS gives them instant access to your product catalog, including pricing specific to the customer or event and the ability to place orders, allocate inventory and update customer information. If you have an internet connection, this is all updated in real-time on Brightpearl, and so inventory levels are immediately accurate on all other channels or, if you’re offline, the orders can still be placed and everything synchronizes as soon as you’re back online.
