Distributors
Growing sales, reducing expenses and saving valuable time. That is what Enterprise Café is all about. Enterprise Café gives you immediate visibility to your sales information and incentive programs across your entire organization – by SKU, product category, manufacturer, or sales rep – across all of your distribution facilities – at chain, franchise, or customer level – all the way down to the individual product or order. And you get that info in real time. Sound too good to be true? Then read on…

Effective and Efficient Sales Management – Making the invisible, visible.

Enterprise Café is a web-based platform used by distributors to provide immediate visibility to comprehensive sales figures, from yesterday to two years ago. We take your every day invoice data, and put it in an easy to use interface that helps you get the most out of it. Let’s face it, most ERP systems focus first on running your business, as they should. But that usually means reporting and analysis tools are an afterthought – slow, cumbersome and difficult to use. When your ERP system was new this might have seemed sufficient, but times have changed and business moves much faster now.

Today there is a new solution. Using our custom designed distributor focused web tool you can easily see how different sales areas are performing in seconds. This could be sales managers or sales reps, across distributors, customers, chains, franchises and more. See how different product categories, manufacturers, brands or products are performing in each of these channels. That is Enterprise Café.

What is your time worth?

As an Owner, CEO or senior executive you are acutely aware of the value of every minute you spend every day. You do not have time to waste sifting through spreadsheets or sorting through piles of paper to find the answers you need. Nor do you want your sales reps or managers spending inordinate amounts of time compiling reports and spreadsheets when they could be out selling new products, opening new customers and serving your most valuable clients.

With Enterprise Caféwhat used to take hours now takes minutes. Sales reps and managers share data at their fingertips. No more guess work. No more waiting for sales rep reports. Management and DSRs alike can both immediately indentify trends across days, weeks, or months to better understand where your business is going and why. In Enterprise Café you can quickly compare the current sales versus same period last year, or do dynamic sales comparisons comparing any time period you require.

Get the answers within seconds as to where sales are down and why. No more waiting for cumbersome reports. No more sifting through mind numbing spreadsheets. Once you have your answers you can address the issues critical to success, and use Enterprise Café to track progress over time and make necessary course corrections towards desired results. No more wondering if your actions are having the desired effect. It is all right there. That is Enterprise Café.

Effective and Efficient Incentive Management

Ever wonder:

  • if all that marketing money you spend is actually getting you new business?
  • Do you ever ask yourself if the investments you make in building business are really paying off?
  • Are customers truly profitable after all the deviations, rebates, credits and extra deliveries are considered?
  • Did that last Spiff get you any new case sales?
  • Are you getting new sales at your foodshow, or are customers just swapping line items for incentives, on purchases they would have made anyway?
  • How easy is it for you to track your manufacturer growth programs each day, to know where you should focus effort for maximum advantage and maximum payout?
  • Are you leaving easy money on the table?

These and many more questions can be answered using Enterprise Café’s unique and effective incentive management capabilities. In Enterprise Café you can create and manage all your sales-based incentives in one place – coupon tracking, deviations, rebates, allowances, spiffs, contests, etc. – encompassing all manufacturers, products and categories – across chains, franchises, customers, and sales reps.

See all current incentives and how they are creating returns, right down to the order and SKU – in real time. For once you can finally see the exact ROI for every single marketing dollar spent. Identify sales opportunities using Enterprise Café’s incredible reporting capabilities; then take action and create highly targeted incentive programs to capture sales – all in the same place. Make the absolute most of each marketing dollar you budget.

At the same time, with just a couple clicks your customers can see every program and incentive you offer and provide. Every rebate, and every coupon and every foodshow deal. With Enterprise Café you can tangibly demonstrate the exact value of every deviation and allowance you’ve negotiated for your customers over time. There is no better way to enrich your customer relationships and stake out a sustainable competitive advantage than using Enterprise Café.
