What You’re Missing Using Epicor Prophet 21 Without a Distributor CRM

Like all distributors, your Prophet 21 ERP performs key automation and processes that keep your business running smoothly day in and day out. Without a doubt, centralized data via an ERP saves you more than just time. It saves you resources, money, and the headache of doing everything manually. With Prophet 21, you have the opportunity to focus on other aspects of your distributorship to continue to grow.

As you look at the areas of your business that could use more direct attention, you’re going to see a plethora of other technologies that have the potential to make a real difference. Maybe you need actions-focused dashboards that a Business Intelligence (BI) platform offers. Or, you’re looking to beat the competition with faster, adaptive pricing optimization software. However, if you’re seeking to grow sales and increase customer satisfaction, you need to look at Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions.

Signs It May Be Time to Look at CRM

Distributors operating without a CRM are probably doing so by sheer willpower. The truth is that sales teams that can keep up in today’s competitive landscape without a CRM are either super-big, superhuman, or super-burnt-out. That’s simply what it takes to compete in a digital-first world. Though, you can take steps to ease up the load on your teams.

A few obvious signs you can look for when deciding if it’s time for a distributor CRM include: no obvious centralized location for customer data, limited visibility into the sales process, and lack of scalability. If any of that sounds like your business, it’s clear that it’s time you start exploring your options.
