Leading software developer and ERP consultant, xkzero, announced today plans to offer a fully-integrated direct store delivery (DSD) & ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution for food and beverage wholesale distribution by integrating xkzero Mobile Commerce with leading cloud ERP system Acumatica. The solution is expected to be ready for market in the second half of 2017. Initial target industries for the solution will be beer distributors, wine & spirits distributors, grocery wholesalers, milk and dairy, salty snacks and bakery products.
Mobile Commerce by xkzero is a flexible mobile app and web-based platform designed to optimize mobile sales, route delivery and intelligence gathering while unifying back office accounting and customer service. Food and beverage companies are able to automate and integrate functions such as Truck Loading, Route Planning and Scheduling, Route Selling, Delivery Automation, Compliance Tracking and Reporting as well as gathering new intelligence.
“We are very excited about partnering with Acumatica,” said xkzero Vice President, Mark Rastovac. “The market has responded very positively to Acumatica and its ability to manage sales orders, track inventory, improve purchasing as well as perform core accounting and financial reporting. Since xkzero has had such great success with Mobile Commerce integrated with Sage 100 and Sage X3, we see Acumatica as the perfect platform for Food and Beverage companies looking for a modern DSD and ERP offering — especially those that have outgrown Quickbooks,” added Mr. Rastovac. “What makes xkzero different is our ability to deliver the entire solution for these wholesalers – from supply chain and warehousing, to financial management to in-store performance.”
“We’ll launch with the food and beverage sector in mind,” continued Mr. Rastovac, “then likely consider other industries relying on route sales and direct store delivery as a means to distribute, such as oil and gas, industrial supplies and hard goods – we’ve had plenty of demand from those companies too.”
