ERP software for Office Supplies | Stationery Business

Let’s cover a note on ERP software for Office Supplies or Stationery Business that sells various products such as Writing instruments – pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, Paper products such as notebooks, journals, stationery paper, envelopes, etc. or Desk accessories such staplers, hole punches, paper clips, binder clips, and many more….
The main reason to cover this blog post is that our team at Globalteckz successfully implemented an Enterprise Resource Planning software for stationery business who sell products via Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumer (B2C) that manages various functionalities such as Inventory handling, Sales, purchase till Accounting.
Any Stationery business operates in 2 methods which includes
  1. A shop selling products to it B2C customers – The target audience is direct customer who are coming to the shop and buying the products. The target audience can be students, offices, schools etc. In some cases the store may be selling the products online via Amazon or eBay.
  2. A Wholesaler or Distributor selling B2B or B2C – In this case the seller is targeting both the audience including small customers as well as corporate customers such as supplying monthly stationery to Banks, Offices, Schools, Artists and so on. The target audience in this case can be minimum but the orders are in bulk.

Although there are other methods such as Manufacturing which is altogether a different MRP system that needs to be implemented for specific type of product. For the same we have experience working with manufacturers with multiple or specific products managing multiple BOM’s.

How ERP Software plays an important role for Office Supplies Business

In first case – B2C – The store owner may use a simple point of sale software or a billing software in order to manage the billing of the customer. But in second case (B2B )ERP software can play an important role as the supply of inventory to corporate houses is continuous in nature.  With B2B the vendor needs to keep the inventory properly in hand so that supply of the products can be met on time and relationship with corporate houses can be maintained.
