Power BI Dashboard for Company with Wholesale Distribution Model

Principals using distributors often struggle to gain clear visibility into their product sales throughout the distribution chain, which spans from manufacturers to wholesalers, retailers, and end customers. The information is typically fragmented, shared in an email with an Excel file that requires extensive manual processing, making it time-consuming and prone to errors. Additionally, the data can be delayed by up to a month, depending on the willingness of wholesalers to share their data, which hinders timely, well-informed decision-making. When data is available, it usually only covers manufacturer-to-wholesaler transactions (sell-in), leaving significant gaps in understanding retail and end-customer dynamics (sell-out).

With Power BI dashboards from BI Solusi, manufacturers and distributors can access near real-time data, empowering them to drive growth effectively along the entire chain. This includes improved forecasting for production adjustments, quicker decisions on sales strategies (what works and what doesn't), anticipation of stockouts, adjustment of underperforming promotions, and promotion of high-performing SKUs.

Power BI Benefits for Company with Distributor Model

Enhancing Distributor and Salesperson Performance

Optimizing Inventory Management and Stock Levels


Managing inventory across multiple distributors can be complex, but Power BI simplifies this process with its advanced analytics capabilities. Directors can gain a real-time view of inventory levels across all distribution channels, ensuring they have an accurate and up-to-date picture of stock availability.
