Software for Building Materials and Industrial Equipment Suppliers

Accolent ERP can help Building Materials and Industrial Equipment suppliers survive the current economic challenges

Most Building Materials and Industrial Equipment Suppliers are Struggling to Survive the Current Economic Challenges

Most distributors of building materials are struggling to survive the current economic challenges. The global Supply Chain is broken, and distributors cannot get the products they need. What’s more, the lockdowns in Shanghai and other parts of China mean that there is likely no Supply Chain relief coming soon. The current out-of-control inflation and the lack of effective public policy steps being taken to curb it, mean that prices are going to continue to rise fast. And, because your customers are also struggling, only some of these price increases can be passed along without losing your hard-to-come-by customers. On top of this, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, lockdowns and government handouts, most distributors are having a hard time finding good employees.

Things Will Get Worse Before They Get Better

Unfortunately, most experts expect that things will get worse before they get better. Many industry watchers are predicting an industry shake-out with many distributors either going out of business or being acquired.
