Small-scale Distribution

African entrepreneurs have to work hard and fast to make it in the world of small-scale distribution. The key to success is knowing who and where your customers are and what their ordering patterns are. FIGJAM’s Van Sales app takes the guesswork out of the game.

It helps you know where you are going, who you need to supply, and exactly what you need to supply them with so that you become your own mobile distribution centre. With our user-friendly mobile app, you can stock up your vehicles with all the right products, and simplify your daily operations. Work offline, capture real-time data on site, and sync all information with your ERP software so that you and your office team always have your fingers on the pulse.

Our Van Sales solution offers you the opportunity to increase sales, significantly reduce business costs, and cut down on admin errors. The result is improved customer satisfaction, which ultimately translates to more sales and greater profitability.
