ERP-ONE+ At A Glance

Good: For wholesalers and distributors, its module's breadth, scope, scalability and integration with third-party apps address nearly every business management need.
Bad: Its startup expense could be prohibitive for some wholesalers/distributors. It doesn't have an HRMS/HCM module.
Bottom Line: ERP-ONE+ is a market leader for good reason. If the adage, "you get what you pay for" is true, then the value of ERP-ONE+ eclipses its total cost of ownership.

Product Overview

Distribution One’s ERP-ONE+ is a complete, wholesale-distribution accounting system and warehouse automation solution. Comprehensive and integrated, ERP-ONE+ aims to increase interconnectivity while heightening operational efficiency through core procedures and automation.

The purpose behind Distribution One’s ERP-ONE+ software solution is to help wholesalers and distributors across many industries streamline processes, automate operations and access real-time business information anywhere.

It includes modules that address: Order Entry, Accounts Receivable and Payable, Inventory Control, Warehouse Automation, Vendor-Managed Inventory, Lot Control, Point of Sale, General Ledger, Purchasing, Sales Analysis, Customer Relationship Management, Dashboard and Data Analytics, Warehouse+ and many other standard tools, like Kitting/Assembly and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

In addition, ERP-ONE+ integrates with third-party e-commerce vendors like Amazon and its Seller Central platform, as well as shipping firms like FedEx and UPS. So, selling a product and shipping inventory can be done in a few mouse clicks.


ERP-ONE+ functionality stems from its 18 features that address most aspects of business management, including, but not limited to:

Dashboard + Data Analytics – Precise visualizations and real-time alerts help identify Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are most significant to individual users, delivering crucial insights into current business health.
