Aptean Distribution ERP

ERP software for the consumer goods industry

About Aptean Distribution ERP

Aptean Distribution ERP is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that helps consumer goods companies manage the transfer of their goods and products from one place to another. The software manages entire supply chain operations including warehousing, retailer compliance, profitability calculations, and forecasting. The software can be deployed on the cloud (public or private) or on-premises.

Aptean Distribution ERP's warehouse management module helps supply chain managers receive goods from different vendors and transfer them to their respective destinations using the tool’s ‘directed putaway’ capabilities. The software picks up products based on product name, fleet route, shipper, order number, and customer. Aptean also helps to maximize the picking efficiency with pre-pack and cartonization rules. Aptean’s wireless warehouse module helps users automate data collection, reduce warehouse errors, and improve labor efficiencies. The wireless warehouse management feature also counts the products during the unloading process at the receiving station.

Aptean Distribution ERP uses physical inventory tools and cycle counting to gain insights into inventory costs. The inventory tool enables users to display, compare, and update their inventory on a real-time basis to ensure maximum control on supply chain processes. The application has a decision resource-planning tool that integrates with point-of-sale (POS) data, historical data, and seasonal sales to predict optimum requirement of raw materials.

Aptean product lifecycle management helps product manufacturers, inventory managers, and supply chain professionals have complete control over product lifecycle, from prototyping to actual sales. The software also provides import tools, EDI, retail labeling, and RFID.

Apprise is a great ERP system with a very wide footprint tailored for companies that sell into "big box" retailers. For the right company, you can use Apprise to manage: product development, forecasting, sourcing, EDI, sales orders, warehouse management, retailer chargebacks, customer allowances, financials, business intelligence, etc. While there may be other single-business-process systems that can do some of these better, you will be hard-pressed to find a packaged ERP system, for this price, that does all of these as well across the board.

Pros

If you sell into Walmart or any other EDI-heavy retailers, the EDI Transaction Manager will be of great benefit to your organization. Apprise offers a completely hands-off approach to EDI that allows your business to focus on managing the orders, not the vast amount of technical requirements to get that order from your retailer's system. Chargeback and allowance management features make for easy management of post-sales deductions. Supplier Production Monitoring provides visibility into constantly changing production and delivery dates so that you know when the product will arrive at your distribution center.

Cons

As with any ERP system with this wide of a footprint, implementation will depend heavily on having the right people in your organization participate in the implementation process. Your technical and business-user staff will play a big part in a successful go live. If you try to implement Apprise without the right expertise, you are setting your organization up for failure.

Powerful ERP, User-Friendly Package

Reviewed on 2018/10/31

Pros

Apprise has modeled everything from purchasing, logistics, manufacturing, warehouse management, and accounting and packaged it all in an easy-to-use interface. As our company has grown, we've found that the capabilities of Apprise have been able to keep up and we're using features now that we never planned on using when we first went live. Apprise has a process for just about everything and if you follow the steps, you reap the rewards in terms of efficiency and visibility.

Cons

If your business is primarily B2C with a large customer list and very little operational complexity, this product may not be for you. Apprise's strengths lie in its flexibility in managing the areas of operations where things typically get murky. Think manufacturing or importing from foreign suppliers.

Pros

Apprise is a good software for our wholesale distribution needs. The inventory control, customer orders and purchase order functions are easy. It is easy to customize product to our customers with this system as well.

Cons

I am not fond that the order fullfilment and shipping is not done through this system. Another system is linked to it to complete the process.

Mostly positive experience

Reviewed on 2018/11/06

Pros

For our business model, DTC, with a high number of products offered and a huge list of customers, we needed a system that would connect all of our company together. The accounting, purchasing and warehouse modules sync perfectly allowing us to manage our efficiencies and focus on the bottom line. Overall our company has greatly advanced in terms of profitability through our partnership with Apprise.

Cons

The merchandising, product management and manufacturing processes are a bit more cumbersome than we would have expected. This is probably due to the changing focus of Apprise as they transition to a more DTC friendly system. Our hope is that the implementation of 8.0 will correct this and resolve this minor criticism of a great system.

It's one platform for majority of the business needs - importing goods from oversea and distributing locally/internationally.

Pros

Ease of working with data - various enquiries and reports. Import capabilities for mass updates/data entry.

Cons

Sometimes it's difficult to find out all consequences. It would be nice if the Help doc it's more descriptive in more often. Also, integration with other parties is not very easy to make.
