How to Make Money in Wholesale and Distribution with Amazon in the Market
Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 1:00PM CST

Your business has been disrupted by the Technology of the Internet, and Amazon. Your key processes – “order to cash” or “procure to pay” — can no longer be just good enough. Your customers are expecting the Amazon experience: they want what they want, where they want it, and as fast as possible. It is assumed by your customers that you will be able to perform these functions at a very high level, or the perception will be that you are not concerned about your customer.

How will you compete? How will you keep your business running while elevating your operations?

While Amazon has size on their side, your advantage is your focus on creating a new vision of the future state of your business.

Join Ultra and George Trudell, Senior Consultant at Ultra, as we help you understand the depth of Amazon’s disruption of the B2B and B2C markets. We will also show you how to achieve your future state through the six areas of re-designing your business model, resulting in a defined business case for change that you can take to management.

Additionally, we will offer specific actionable ideas for improvement in four areas:

  • eCommerce
  • Demand and Inventory Planning
  • Third Party Providers of Goods
  • Warehouse Management

There is no longer room to operate at a less than optimal level. Spend an hour with Ultra and learn how to combat Amazon with best practices that all distributors should follow.

Who Should Attend?

Manufacturers and distributors interested in learning about how to make money with Amazon in the whole distribution market.
