With Business Cloud Essentials (BCE), you can fall in love with your business again, by taking away the hassle of repetitive tasks.
Having effective stock control / inventory management processes in place is a core element of being a successful wholesaler. Not doing this efficiently will likely mean you spend a lot of time firefighting, and you’ll ultimately struggle to grow or thrive.
Keeping up with customer demand is harder than ever before. Not having a suitable system in place to deal with these expectations means that growth may threaten to tear your business apart, before it’s had a chance to reach its potential.
Successfully connecting online sales activity to other business operations is a key hurdle that must be overcome for wholesalers looking to ensure future success.

There are likely some wholesalers that still do things the old-fashioned way. These companies may see no obvious reason to change their approach. But with more of the world digitising all the time, it’s sensible to embrace technology. Not only does this future-proof your business, but it also helps to keep you ahead of the competition.
Inventory Management Software is an all-encompassing solution that ties a wholesaler’s separate functions together, in one, easy-to-use system. Many wholesalers are constantly fighting fires and worrying about their finances. Inventory Management Software eradicates these burdens, allowing businesses to focus on more positive aspects. Business Cloud Essentials is an example of such a system.
Inventory Management Software has functionality around stock control, e-commerce, accounting and supply chain processes. This makes it the perfect tool for wholesalers that are looking to grow and prosper. Business Cloud Essentials is specifically tailored for small to medium-sized wholesalers.
Business Cloud Essentials has a multitude of benefits for wholesalers. It allows for full visibility of your inventory. Financial reporting and forecasting become possible through the use of accurate data. Online sales are essentially put into autopilot. Wholesalers are brought closer to their customers too. Overall efficiency is increased, and sustained growth becomes a real possibility.
Yes. The software brings all operations together seamlessly, including accounting, CRM, e-commerce, payroll and stock control. This connectedness between departments allows for consistent data and powerful reporting. It also makes it possible to automate many processes.
Business Cloud Essentials is equipped with powerful reporting capabilities. With all business functions being unified, the data in these reports is highly accurate and up to date. This means that you can make bold predictions and constantly monitor financial health.
Many processes in the supply chain can effectively be put into autopilot with Business Cloud Essentials. Online sales made on your e-commerce platform are fed back into Business Cloud Essentials, updating the inventory data, so that orders can then be made (if materials fall below a certain threshold). This clarity around stock control and sales makes it easier to stay on top of logistical processes too.
Business Cloud Essentials is designed to facilitate growth for wholesalers. By making many tasks easier, and by automating many processes (as well as providing invaluable insight), the system is truly transformational for smaller companies. It provides scaled growth too, so even if you grow quickly, it doesn’t coincide with the usual discomfort.
Business Cloud Essentials is intentionally simple to use. For every new customer, we assign a Customer Success Manager, who becomes your point of contact throughout implementation (and during your whole time as a customer). Their role is to ensure you get the absolute maximum value from the solution, and they’re always on hand to support with any requirements or queries.
Cloud-based systems allow you to access your data online at any time (and from any place). This is particularly important now that more people are working from home.
Cloud-based systems are actually known for being safer than other software. This is because your sensitive data is stored online, rather than in a physical location (which might be vulnerable). Online access makes it easier for security protocols to be updated as and when it’s necessary to do so.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a model by which software is hosted centrally by a provider, making life easier for users. Customers pay a monthly fee for this service, which includes use of the system itself. This system is accessed online, rather than being installed on premise.
This method of payment helps with cashflow. It allows you to pay a monthly fee, with no hidden surprises. This fee includes any support you may need, and any updates that are applied to the system going forward.
