For wholesalers looking to deliver best in practice, having access to some of the latest in product information that’s accurate isn’t an optional extra – it’s a must.

How do you manage your wholesale orders? For businesses with sales or distribution teams visiting customers around Australia or negotiating orders at trade events, having access to some of the latest product information, near real-time stock level details or manufacturer pricing is integral when it comes to maintaining a competitive advantage.

For many businesses however, teams are still wasting time entering data manually from hand-written forms, leading to inefficiencies, errors and an inability to effectively track and trace orders from sales conversation to delivery.

If you want to meet customer demands and compete in a challenging market, making your wholesale supply chain processes more mobile with Canvas® and a connected tablet from Telstra can help.Canvas is a mobile business application that replaces paper forms with digital ones on compatible devices. Streamline orders, consignments and deliveries by letting salespeople, drivers and warehouse teams complete forms on their smartphones or tablets.
