Benefits and Features


Accelerate order booking time
Distributors can directly place orders from within the portal. With real-time notifications, approvers are notified and after approval, a sales order is posted in SAP in real-time. You can bring the order cycle time down from three days to zero days.

Improve customer experience
The distributor or sales employee gets all the necessary information like stock details, order status, or outstanding in one place. Getting all the real-time and necessary details in one place saves time and improves customer experience.

Reduce voice and email communication
Empower your channel partners with all the basic features, thus simplifying their lives by not having to follow up with internal employees for every small query on account statements, dispatches, or returns. In case of any grievance, they can directly raise a service request.

Save time and reduce mistakes
The solution is faster to implement and easy to use. The out-of-the-box native integration with backend SAP ERP (ECC or S/4HANA) ensures seamless and error-free data flow between the portal and SAP ERP.

Save time while placing orders

Distributors can quickly place orders with just three to four clicks by selecting multiple products from a single page, or by uploading predefined excel templates. Orders can also be placed quickly by just copying existing orders and submitting them.


Support for multiple languages

The solution can enable multiple languages and be rolled out in different languages to different regions. This feature helps organizations that are operating in different geographics provide regional language support to their users.


Capture all transaction events and timelines

For each transaction, the portal provides a detailed audit trail with a timeline and comments like who created, who approved, and when a particular request got completed. You can see the entire transaction history in one go and also track the status of transactions and approvals.


Create a service request

Customers can create a service request if they are facing any issues with claims, accounts etc. This simplifying their lives by not having to follow up with internal employees for every small issues. The additional reporting will help see the summary as well as details of the Service Module.


Visualize the data with comprehensive dashboards

The C-level gets visibility into real-time insights on primary and secondary sales. This becomes even more helpful during month-end closings. The comprehensive dashboard gives you multiple options to slice and dice. There are a lot of reports available for both distributors and internal employees.
