Wholesale Distribution

While the fundamentals of wholesale trading still involve the breaking of bulk and selling to retailers, the market is rapidly becoming broader and more complex. Retailers intent on squeezing wholesale prices in a competitive market present a challenge, but wholesalers can meet it by sourcing more effectively, maintaining strong relationships with manufacturers and other suppliers, and seeking out new sources globally.

K8 helps wholesalers to negotiate and manage cost prices, order efficiently, stock just-in-time, reduce handling and optimise transport. Visibility across the whole supply chain gives stronger control over the huge catalogue essential to give customers choice and availability. K8 can also support the introduction of business and service innovations such as vendor/supplier managed inventory, franchises, e-commerce, telesales, logistics or showrooms. Using K8 wholesalers can evolve and build margins by becoming much more than just a supplier of bulk product.



OneOffice Successes

"We see our software as one of our primary weapons".  So says Kevin Cloke, General Manager at Wattmaster, distributors of electrical products to the Australian electrical wholesale market. "We believe that we would not have achieved the level of success that we have without it." Before moving on to OneOffice, Wattmaster utilised two different software solutions over four years.  These previous solutions just could not support their incredible growth and their expanding business requirements. "Fortunately we found OneOffice," states Managing Director Peter Bendle.  "We know that this package just keeps on expanding with us.  We have already doubled the number of licensed users and find there is always a solution for any new business needs. " Wattmaster has enjoyed significant growth in the few years they have been using OneOffice.  To their pleasure, the staff numbers have increased at a much slower rate than the sales, improving their ROI continually. With several large international customers, Wattmaster have to provinde a world class service.  They are in the process of implementing a "Pick Face & Replinishment" system in their warehouse, a standard part of the OneOffice logistics solutions.  This will help keep them ahead of their competition and looking forward to a continually brighter future....
