LUCIA Distributor Management System (DMS)
LUCIA DMS enables distributors to manage their sales and logistics operations professionally, while automatically reporting relevant sales, inventory, retail outlet & performance information to the respective manufacturers.
LUCIA DMS is built on a solid WMS core, it gains rapid ‘buy-in’ from distributors because it is easy to use and streamlines their operation by driving operational efficiencies, inventory accuracy and simplifying (or removing) the reporting burden. The system can be configured (by users) to meet their specific environment and can be integrated with existing accounting systems. It also supports Sales Force Automation (SFA) – either through LUCIA SFA or through interfacing with existing systems.
How LUCIA DMS works from replenishment, inbound to outbound
For the principal

You are able to instill pricing, promotions and operational control of your products across the network. Controls can be customised to your choice of granularity – by product type, channel type, distributor – down to outlet level if desired.
High Adoption Rate at Your Distributors
LUCIA DMS is currently installed at hundreds of sites across the region – distributor adoption rate is remarkably high in random comparisons with competitor products. This high adoption rate is testament to the fact that the product was designed to be workflow-driven, with the distributors’ ease of use in mind, whilst instilling necessary disciplines.
Real-time Operational Data Gathering
Data for LUCIA DMS is gathered through the operational processes it drives; not as an after-thought extraction process.
