Challenges that Chevron encountered prior to adopting DMS software
Uncontrolled business operations: The production and distribution of products will be very challenging in the absence of management software. As a result, businesses struggle to successfully manage their operations and manufacturing processes.
Sales, order processing, and inventory management were previously done manually, which required a lot of time and did not result in high efficiency.
Management, accounting, and collection of Distributors’ debts are difficult.
Since there are too many goods and categories, inventory control is not as effective as it could be. The consolidation method has many flaws and the goods control process is time-consuming.
Cannot regulate the number of goods produced: unable to distribute goods during prime time. The lack of a monthly breakdown of the goods makes it impossible to prepare the goods for the busy season, which causes shortages of the goods.
