Distribution management is essential for OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in the IT industry for several reasons. Firstly, it helps OEMs ensure that their products are available in the right place, at the right time, and in the right quantity to meet customer demand. Effective distribution management helps to optimize inventory levels, reduce lead times, and increase product availability. This, in turn, enhances customer satisfaction and loyalty. Secondly, it helps OEMs to manage their channel partners effectively, ensuring that they are meeting sales targets and promoting their products effectively. Thirdly, it helps OEMs to reduce costs by optimizing their supply chain and logistics operations. Finally, effective distribution management enables OEMs to stay competitive in a rapidly changing market by responding quickly to customer needs and market trends.
