In this paper, the writer first defines how distributed order management systems are progressing from being ERP centric and more customer-focused and demand-driven, and second, how these systems are making it possible for sports nutrition distributors to attain their selling, service and long-term growth objectives. The writer points out that for sports nutrition distributors in general and Europa Sports Products specifically, the need for synchronizing their 177 suppliers that provide just over 5,400 products, inventoried in 215,000 square feet of warehouse space spread across four geographic locations underscores the urgent need the company has for a reliable distributed order management system. The writer maintains that integrating with suppliers' Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, supply chain, order management, and forecasting systems is also critical to the success of Europa Sports Products. The business model of distribution is predicated on price, availability, accuracy of fulfillment and support programs for dealers and resellers. The growing importance of analytics as they relate to managing supply chains, order management, fulfillment and integration is also discussed. The paper includes charts and tables.
