ALL YOUR INVENTORY MANAGEMENT REQUIREMENTS, IN ONE PLACE
Unlock your profitability
You’re in business to make a profit, because profit drives growth and scale. But what drives profit?
If we at MWare had to choose, we’d say agility, innovation, and being open to new ways of thinking. Mostly though, it’s digital transformation. Data automation delivers powerful insights about your business, empowering you to ask the right questions and make the best decisions to influence change.
The MWare Solution Stack connects businesses to best-of-breed resource management tools that automate key processes across financial, human, asset, security, and IT functions. Our integration middleware platforms and our data collectors simplify the entire transaction lifecycle, helping you to efficiently manage all your company resources from one place.
As part of the stack, MWare Stock Management bundles solutions in procurement management, mobile workforce management, and governance, risk and compliance.
Together, these solutions address operational and risk management challenges related to stock and inventory control. They optimise your business processes and provide visibility into your data, as well as any compliance regulations that may hamper operations.
At MWare, we don’t believe in ripping and replacing technology. We design, implement, and maintain a value-enhancing, integrated, and automated solution that solves business challenges using your existing technology investments.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
Electronic Data Interchange or EDI is the foundation that many businesses rely on to better serve their customers, trading partners, and other members of the digital ecosystem. Companies use it to digitally exchange business documents through a standardised format; connecting one business to another through e-commerce platforms or ERP systems.
Wholesalers need technology that allows them to onboard partners and applications more quickly, while reducing total cost of ownership and resolving potential issues. When wholesalers connect with customers (B2B or B2C), they must be able to send and receive electronic invoices, provide order and shipping confirmations, and manage products in standard formats that are also transparent.
Modern EDI technology allows wholesalers to refine and optimise their digital value chain, with leaner and more efficient inventory purchasing, storage, and distribution built on integration control and actionable insight. This offers them a true competitive advantage.
