Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

ERP and mobile software developer xkzero has announced the availability of xkzero Mobile Commerce software integrated natively into Sage 100 ERP. xkzero Mobile Commerce provides Route Selling and Direct Store Delivery (DSD) automation, primarily for companies who sell business to business (B2B) utilizing in-house sales teams and with their own fleet of delivery reps and vehicles.

Paul Ziliak, xkzero co-founder, says demand for xkzero Mobile Commerce (XMC) has exceeded expectations, “We announced the release of XMC for Sage ERP X3 at Sage Summit 2014. We had already generated great customer success and interest from the X3 channel, but we did not anticipate the demand we’ve also seen from Sage partners and end user customers with Sage 100 ERP.”

DSD is a method of distribution common among food and beverage manufacturers and distributors. By automating these processes, companies can achieve increased sales and improve inventory control, thus increasing gross profits. Ziliak reports that companies investing in DSD automation represent a wide range of industries, but notes that food and beverage companies such as beer, wine and spirits, carbonated beverages, bread and bakery products, milk and dairy, ice cream and frozen products, energy drinks, coffee, water, ice, pizza and salty snacks are sectors that could be well-served with xkzero Mobile Commerce.

XMC automates a comprehensive range of transaction types, including pre-sales (order taking), deliveries, returns, exchanges, payments and inter-vehicle transfers. Additionally, XMC aids with truck driver loading and scheduling, inventory check-in and check-out, daily inventory and payment reconciliations and more.

“We’re passionate about local and independent businesses and we love watching them grow. This is a true enterprise caliber system available for small and mid-sized distributors. From asset management, bottle and can deposit tracking, surveys for the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and other compliance reporting, a performance monitoring dashboard, photo and geo-code enabled transactions–we’ve got it all covered,” Ziliak said. “Distributors with XMC and Sage 100 ERP will be better informed, more confident and capable of capturing more sales with less time and effort.”

XMC is built native iOS (Apple mobile devices) and includes a responsive design web management console along with web services to ensure a seamless ERP integration, Ziliak said. “The technologies we chose have proven to be the best for business. Usability, flexibility and dependability are paramount when you’re in customer facing situations. That is our guiding force.”
