ScanSource: Digitizing Tools for Better Vendor and Software Support in Wholesale Distribution
A wholesale distribution company that supplies high-tech value-add software to vendors, ScanSource, headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, had many legacy systems and realized that it needed to establish efficient global processes to fuel growth.
Due to their great success that resulted in many acquisitions, ScanSource wrestled with a software landscape that had as many as 10 legacy systems. To establish efficient global processes, they knew they had a digital journey to make.
They were looking to simplify product maintenance to let partners act on discounts, streamline complex contract and charge-back functionalities and support their partners with tools that were connected to ScanSource software.
With 80% of ScanSource undergoing a digital transformation within 18 months, ScanSource was able to realize these benefits:
- Solid, scalable software that supports collaboration between re-sellers, vendors, and ScanSource
- Digital tools for managing Human Resource operations as well as re-seller price contracts
