Cooperation on your terms
Connect your trade partners to one common eLeader DMS system and gain knowledge about the distribution of your products. Automate orders and inventory updates, monitor the flow of goods, sell in a multi-channel way: stationary, in the field, and remotely. Manage orders, pre-orders, and van selling with a single system. Credit contractors and settle accounts with them through multiple payment channels. Analyse data, gain competitive advantages and expand the distribution network.
Until recently, our operations in different countries were conducted using information stored in a number of different systems, which made it difficult to use data and manage teams on a daily basis. The implementation of the eLeader system addressed the needs of our subsidiaries, increasing the efficiency of fieldwork and optimizing the distribution of our products. The deployment of the distributor module was a small revolution, which enabled us to improve all the links in our distribution chain.

Distributors will be your traders
One common system means effective task management, planning, execution and reporting. eLeader DMS opens the door to extensive cooperation between the manufacturer, distributors, warehouses and sales representatives.

With eLeader Retail Portal you can get orders, feedback, and reports directly from point-of-sale employees.
During implementations in companies all over the world, we still encounter the problem of the lack of automatic data exchange between corporate IT systems, distributors, and the mobile system. In the eLeader Integration Department, we create interfaces for customers that allow efficient and trouble-free data exchange between IT systems.
