Advanced Distribution Software is the missing link that connects distributors to
their customers and vendors, providing them the ability to respond quickly and
confidently to increased demands and market changes."

to delivering real value as a total replenishment process savings partner to
your customers and vendors, then Advanced Distribution Software is the solution
that will help you achieve your vision," said Dominic Telaro, Director of
Industry Solutions for I.B.I.S., Inc. "Advanced Distribution Software allows you

At a time when many distributors are operating on outdated ERP and IT systems,
Advanced Distribution Software gives distributors a competitive advantage for

mission-critical enterprise solutions. Advanced Distribution Software is the
solution that is essential for distributors to bridge the gap between their
customer requirements and vendor needs.
