Distribution Practices

 

The wholesale practice helps clients optimize the distribution of products and work effectively with potential clients and customers. Adequate and profitable distribution comes from placing the appropriate products within the proper environments at exactly the precise times for maximum effectiveness. It also means building working relationships with the right people and companies, gaining useful information along the way from and moving products with ease and profitably. Altro has the distribution experience for launching new products or re-introducing existing products in retail, specialty pharmacy, hospital and veterinary markets.

EDI Capability

 

Electronic Data Interchange or EDI is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents between companies and is much less expensive than the manual handling of paper documents. Business documents like invoices, purchase orders, and advanced ship notices can all be exchanged more efficiently through EDI.

 

  • replaces the faxing and mailing of paper documents

  • uses specific computer record formats that are based on widely accepted standards

  • enables you to fit your businesses specific needs and improve your efficiencies

  • less labor time is required

  • fewer errors occur than in manually processing the documents by hand

  • transactions flow faster and more reliably
 
The majority of the vendors we currently work with have EDI set up capabilities. Please let us know if this is something you are interested in.
