Sage 500 ERP Wholesale Distribution

The Sage 500 ERP wholesale distribution software comprises a robust suite of modules that work synergistically to provide advanced solutions for tracking, managing, and replenishing inventory and managing warehouse operations through the entire distribution cycle, from purchasing to stocking, all the way through sales.

The following modules integrate seamlessly with Sage 500 ERP wholesale distribution software to build valuable functionality as stand-alone solutions and give your distribution operations unparalleled efficiency and control.

Inventory Management

Track costs and sales histories by warehouse and use multiple bins in the same warehouse for a single inventory item. With this wholesale distribution software feature, you’ll be able to quickly locate the items your customers are requesting.

Inventory Replenishment

Meet demand and reduce inventory and carrying costs with the Inventory Replenishment wholesale distribution software module by incorporating such factors as seasonal cycles, sales history, and lead times to determine the appropriate order point for inventory.

Warehouse Management

Align processes in your warehouse with your business management system. The Warehouse Management wholesale distribution software module extends the functionality of the Inventory Management and Inventory Replenishment modules by providing advanced features, including bin tracking, three-step inventory transfers, and both wave and zone picking.

Purchase Order

Control inventory through accurate tracking and manage the physical receipt of materials by matching the delivery receipt with the invoice and the original purchase order.

Sales Order

Price inventory items based on customer class, location, discounts, or any number of criteria your business requires. Each line item can have its own ship-to address, salesperson, tax rate, ship date, ship-from location, and drop ship.

Credit Card Processing

A complete credit card processing solution for mail order, telephone order, mobile payments, and Internet businesses, based on Sage Exchange technology. Transactional information, such as authorization codes, is captured and stored in the Sage Exchange Vault for historical and reconciliation purposes. Sage 500 ERP also includes the ability to process Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) transactions through Sage Payment Solutions, giving Sage 500 ERP customer’s access to the Automated Clearinghouse Network (ACH) for their electronic transactions.

Sage Sales Tax

Constantly changing tax laws intensify the complexity of calculating, collecting, and remitting sales and use taxes to more than 8,000 taxing jurisdictions across North America. Determining the correct nexus or jurisdiction is becoming increasingly difficult as municipalities grow, shrink, are annexed, or split off. Sage Sales Tax has the ability to determine the correct nexus not only by Street Address or ZIP code, but also by longitude and latitude of the delivery site.

Return Merchandise Authorization

Processing returns and staying competitive demands a more specialized level of service. Tracking and resolving these returns can be an increasing challenge. The Sales Order module includes advanced tools to manage customer returns and a formalized Return Merchandise Authorization process to help you easily implement return and replacement policies.

Light Manufacturing/Advanced Kitting

Manage production and kit assembly without complicated labor transactions or material issues. Streamlined Sage 500 ERP manufacturing business software integrates with other optional modules and allows distributors, assemble-to-order industries, and other light manufacturers to concentrate on other critical business issues without getting tied up in complex manufacturing processes.

Product Configurator

Configure sales orders and finished parts routings or bills of material based on variable functions. An easy-to-use manufacturing software interface lets customer service quickly identify and select configured parts. Create new items on-the-fly using customized item masks, as well as new long- and short-item descriptions. As part of Sage MAS wholesale distribution software, Product Configurator even builds the item cost and suggested price.
