Can ERP help bridge the generational divide in wholesale distribution?

The answer is, "Yes, but..."

Legacy ERPs aren't equipped to handle the changing of the guard

With 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day, many leaders of wholesale distribution organizations are ready to hand down control to a new generation. And that generation has grown up with technology that has it questioning inherited systems such as ERPs.

In the new white paper, Can ERP Help Bridge the Generational Divide in Wholesale Distribution, Cindy Jutras, President, Mint Jutras, outlines expectations the new generation is bringing to the workplace. She also addresses the need modern distribution companies require for broader collaboration and extensibility.

For companies going through a changing of the guard (or soon will be), the central challenge is to attract bright new talent and help them learn your business. ERP can help, but not just any old ERP solution. Cindy asked distributors to evaluate and prioritize ERP selection criteria.

Find out how distributors rated the ERP selection criteria and learn what Cindy has deemed essential to help fill both the skills gap and the feature gap, since 'making do' and 'getting by' simply won't be enough with today's new leaders.
