10 Must-Haves for Distribution ERPs

If you’re in the market for a new ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution and are already starting to look at vendors, you’ll want to read this guide.


Every ERP has baseline features such as accounts payable, receivables, inventory tracking, forecasting. But there are other must-have features that can improve your margins, help you grow faster, and differentiate you from competitors. Plus, you should consider what you need to today – and what you’ll need in the upcoming years.


This eBook will help you determine what capabilities will be necessary to drive tangible value today and in the future. Use it to develop your technology roadmap and set the criteria for what you’ll need from an ERP vendor.

Digital transformation is accelerating throughout global businesses. What started as a leap of faith for many enterprises during the pandemic has become a true competitive advantage for those businesses embracing digital solutions.

2023 Research: The State of Data Analytics in Distribution

It’s all here. MDM’s latest research into the utilization of data analytics in distribution — including barriers, frequency, application areas, prioritization, planned investment and more.


The benefits of modern data analytics tools such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence (BI) software and Pricing Intelligence software are many. They take the guesswork out of decision-making. They provide real-time information at a time when speed is vital. They democratize data use across the organization and help distributors un-silo departments that were previously using disparate processes. They show distributors what their customers want — not just from a product demand standpoint, but how they want to buy it. That’s just for starters.
