Based on Sage 100, the Distributor Management software is built to dramatically increase functionality. As is critical to any Food Distribution operations, the Catch Weight Item feature is a cornerstone to this system along with other important functions such as Route Scheduling, Fuel Surcharge Calculations and many more. This system is also designed to work hand-in-hand with Crescent's Warehouse Management System; allowing the Sage 100 user to track by lot, by multi-bin and so much more.
