Business Challenge

Our client specializes in Distribution Management System (DMS) services tailored for diverse brand companies, including Collection Entry Automation, overseeing the distribution of goods to retailers, facilitating payment collection, and managing the payment cycle. However, the current workflow heavily depends on manual intervention, resulting in inefficiencies. This manual process requires extensive labour and consumes valuable working hours, ultimately impeding productivity and accuracy. The challenges faced by our client within this process include:

  • Labor Intensive: The manual nature of the process demands substantial human effort, indicating a challenge in resource allocation and productivity.
  • Time Consuming: The process consumes considerable working hours, implying inefficiency and potential delays in other tasks.
  • Error-Prone: Manual processes inherently prone to errors, posing a threat to the accuracy of financial data and reporting, potentially impacting decision-making and the overall financial well-being of the enterprise.
  • Lack of Scalability: Dependence on manual processes creates a bottleneck, restricting scalability and impeding the capacity to effectively manage rising transaction volumes or accommodate business expansion.
  • Compliance Risks: Relying on manual processes heightens the risk of non-compliance with regulations or internal policies, potentially leaving the company vulnerable to legal or financial repercussions.
Business Objectives

Our client’s primary objective was to modernize Collection Entry Automation from various brand companies to local vendors. The aim is to reduce manual efforts, improve efficiency, and minimize errors in tasks such as downloading collection reports, filtering based on payment mode and verification status, and updating the brand company's Centralized Distribution Management System [CDMS].
