Accord provides a powerful software solution for the distribution of high volume, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), allowing you to streamline routine procedures, monitor performance, improve customer service and operate more profitability.
In today's climate of increased competition, higher overheads and reduced margins the successful distributor must have detailed information instantly available to make the correct management decisions. Accord ensures you have all this data at your fingertips - from improved buying information and the highlighting of slow moving lines to the detailed stock and sales statistics critical to improved stock management.
Accord provides a total solution for the modern Cash & Carry business making it possible to achieve the fundamentally important objectives of security, control and fast throughput of customers which are critical to success.
Whether you are a small independent operator or a large organisation with multiple depots, Accord provides all the necessary functionality and benefits to run a successful and profitable operation, including full delivered wholesale functionality for companies which offer a delivered service alongside cash & carry.

Accord’s Warehouse Management System offers a complete solution for any organisation with warehouse operations. Whether you’re a manufacturer, retailer, wholesaler, distributor or logistics specialist Accord WMS will allow you to maximise warehouse efficiency, reduce costs and improve customer service levels.
Scalable to meet the needs of small to large operations it is available as a traditional paper based system or using modern Radio Frequency and/or Voice technologies to deliver real time benefits and additional performance improvements.
Accord WMS is available as part of a complete Accord Distribution Solution or stand-alone to interface to third party order processing and stock systems.
Voice technology is available across all of Accord’s warehouse management modules, including Order Picking,Goods Receiving, Stock taking, Put Away and Picking Face replenishment
Voice allows users of Accord’s Warehouse Management software to maximise the benefits of real-time, hands-free and eyes-free interaction with the system. It generates major performance benefits, especially in terms of accuracy and productivity. Systems typically pay for themselves within a year of installation - often within six months.
The Accord Voice modules offer you the flexibility of taking them as part of a full Accord supply chain software implementation or as a stand-alone WMS to interface to third party Order Processing and Stock systems. If you already have a suitable Warehouse Management System we can supply the Voice modules on their own, to interface to that WMS.
Voice Picking is available as part of Accord's Voice Directed Warehouse Management modules, offering outstanding performance improvements including improved accuracy (typically 99.9%+), increased productivity (10-20%) and a fast ROI (typically 6 - 12months)
Having the right amount of stock to maintain customer service levels is critical to profitability. Too much stock ties up too much working capital and warehouse space. Under stocking, or the wrong mix, could mean failure to meet orders and lower service levels.
The Accord Stock Control module, tightly integrated with Sales and Purchase Order Management, EPoS and Warehouse Management, allows you to effectively monitor stock. As a result you can forecast demand and streamline stockholding - thereby releasing working capital and increasing overall profitability - yet maintain customer service levels.
