    • Largest Full-Service Distributor of Shoe Repair in U.S. Retains Leadership

      Southern Leather Company is the largest full-service distributor of shoe repair and store supplies in the United States. Founded in 1912, the company is a fourth-generation family business with warehouses in six major American cities. It carries widely recognized merchandise from leading vendors— including nearly 20,000 in-stock items ranging from fitting aids and care products to buckles, fasteners, cleaners, and foot-related medical accessories.

    • Going Mobile to Disappear
      Being a showroom salesperson is a demanding job. In addition to intimately knowing the products on the showroom floor and in the warehouse, you are expected to remember where the product is, if it has special pricing, what products substitute for it and what companion products to sell with it. On top of that, you are typically on your feet for most of the day traveling well-worn paths around the showroom floor. Today’s digital distributors are utilizing digital tools like smartphones and tablets to address these challenges and grow in-store sales.

    • Johnstone Supply Partners with Epicor Eclipse to Help Distributors Grow Business

    • How to Free Your Data
      Business Intelligence (BI) applications while not new have certainly become more accessible to the small to mid-sized business. The features are just as powerful as the applications which cost tens of thousands of dollars but provide an implementation and user experience which is modern, mobile and cloud-based. 

    • Gain Insights from your Systems’ Data

      Ask a hundred people what Business Intelligence software is and you’ll get two hundred different answers. Over the last few years there have been a number of new Business Intelligence (BI) applications released to the market. The Cloud and mobile are driving new capabilities in being able to access, create and share data in ways that haven’t been possible before or affordable to do so. 

    • It’s Time to Transform
      As a Distributor you have very big challenges in front of you as the competition is increasing and margins are decreasing. You wish this were reversed but it’s not. The Cloud is driving some of this pressure as your competitors are implementing new software solutions to help them improve margins and stand out from the crowd. Maybe it’s time to look at how BI software in the Cloud, sometimes referred to as Software as a Service (SaaS), can help you.

    • Put Your Head in the Cloud
      Cloud computing continues to drive business transformations across the Distribution industry. And that is not marketing hype. Look at the latest industry news, you’ll find multiple stories on how the "Cloud” is changing Distribution. Some of the times for the positive and other times for the negative. If you haven’t felt the impact of the Cloud within your business you will, either in how you run it or how your competition is using it.

    • Get the Right Insights into Your Distribution Business
      Bob Dylan wrote, "If you’re not busy being born, you’re busy dying ." The same seems to be true in the context of operating a distribution business. The wholesalers who are most energized and, often, most successful, are the ones who understand that technology is a sales and profit enabler- not a cost center. They are continually looking for ways to grow their business, harvest additional competitive value from their systems, and when those systems have been maxed out, they carefully select a new system with proven potential to drive their growth for over the next several years. 

  • Epicor solutions are designed around the unique operational needs of distributors and are available in the cloud, hosted, or on premises.

    Now, distributors can better manage complexity and focus on growth.
