Beverage businesses have their own unique challenges
Large product ranges, cutting in new lines, fickle customers, a variety of sales and delivery models
Improved Customer Ordering
Without orders you have no business. Using DSD Smart Order customers can place their own orders from their smartphone. They can copy a prior order to make this easy, save items as favourites, and you can push promotional items onto their order template. This works with your delivery plan so customers do not request delivery for days you do not visit them, and you can remind customers by SMS to order on the day before a scheduled delivery
Improved Sales Rep Ordering
Some customers like to see a sales rep. It gives you more chance to influence the order in a competitive category. Our DSD Sales solution allows the sales rep to view promotions for the customer, count shelf stock, gather competitive trade information and take an order. The sale rep can also check the fridge is still in good working order, and request a new fridge placement.
Delivering the orders efficiently
Trucks can be loaded by order, in reverse delivery sequence, and a delivery completed by the driver with only a few taps. Payment from COD customers can be accepted, including by credit card. A POD can be collected and a delivery docket or invoice printed if desired. Turn by turn navigation helps the driver find the customer.
Improve your Van Sales performance
Many beverage companies use Van Sales to service some customers. DSD Van Sales manages truck inventory, sales, returns and payments, providing fully reconciled reports each day. Invoices are printed using portable printers. Copies of the Invoice, including the POD are available in DSD Connect. Turn by turn navigation helps the driver find an unfamiliar customer. New customers can be added and instantly serviced. Van Sales is complicated and messy to manage, but DSD Van Sales makes it easy.
DSD Connect extends your ERP or accounting system. A simple Drag and Drop interface allows you to move orders between trucks and maximise the efficiency of your fleet. DSD Connect allows you to set up a sales or delivery plan. Trucks and sales people on the road can be tracked using Google Maps, and you see who has been delivered or visited. View, print and email POD documents. This can even all be done from your mobile phone. You can even automate the distributor credit and invoice for deliveries made by distributors to your house accounts.
