Top technology plans for Distributors in 2014

Monday, January 27, 2014

In a recent webinar hosted by Modern Distribution Management magazine, distributors of all sizes were asked where they were investing technology dollars in 2014. The top three areas of spend were:

Customer Relationship Management (CRM): 40.7%
eCommerce: 40.1%
Mobile for Sales: 29.7%

Interestingly, these are three areas that xTuple and our community of partners and developers have applied significant resources to in the past year. xTuple CRM, xTupleCommerce and Mobile Web products work seamlessly together — a unique blend of applications that, using our new REST API, allow users to benefit from both our browser and desktop clients, as well as customer-facing eCommerce websites. Where are you investing? [Survey]
