Work On-The-Go with Mobile Supply Chain Management Software
Supply chain requirements are constantly fluctuating and becoming increasingly complex. Orders come in quickly and consumer expectations are higher than ever. Orders must be processed, filled and shipped out as soon as possible and need to be intact, correct and cost-effective for the customer.

Case Study: Pool Source LLC Optimizes Inventory Using Acumatica Cloud ERP
Pool Source LLC is an independent distributor of pool supplies located in Nashville, Tennessee. In the early stages of their business, Pool Source was struggling to optimize their supply chain management. They needed to maintain customer specific pricing, design processes for warehouse sales and deliveries, involve multiple users and use custom reporting. The Acumatica team was able to design a comprehensive ERP solution for Pool Source with their distribution software’s customizable capabilities. Some of the significant customizations Acumatica tailored to Pool Source were advanced pricing capabilities and two distinct processes for two different types of sales. Like many wholesale distributors, Pool Source has different prices for different customer accounts. Some customers have large volumes and pick up supplies on their own while others need supplies for a specific job delivered to a job site. Using Acumatica, Pool Source was able to accommodate both scenarios.
