Systems can support a business at two levels: one is it can support the business operation and another it can support the decision process. System support aims at cost reduction through increase in productivity, improved customer service, improved decisions through more accurate input data and integration of various functions through a common database. Several softwares in Enterprise Resource Planning have immensely contributed to an efficient distribution management in an enterprise. All these ERP-related software packages provide studies on existing processes and procedures, information and material flow patterns, workloads at various points, organization structure, existing systems in place and number of persons using them.
