As a Fastener Company, are you being forced to do more, in less time, with greater accuracy, with less people? If so, you have come to the right place. The Business Edge is unlike other Distribution and Manufacturing software.
The Business Edge™ IS SIMPLE
When we designed The Business Edge™, we went to our clients’ locations and we observed their employees actually doing their work. We designed and redesigned our screens until they exactly matched the activities that occur in a Fastener Company. The system has all the same visual cues, mouse clicks and keystrokes, regardless of the function that you are performing. The result is that once you understand any part of the system, you intuitively understand the entire system. Cross training is a breeze. New hires get up to speed in hours, not weeks. Implementation is easy and much quicker than other systems. The Business Edge is truly a different kind of software.
The Business Edge™ IS FOCUSED
We know how important pricing is to you. We understand that in order to be effective, labels have to be an integrated part of the system, not an afterthought. We realize that in this industry, many Customers and Vendors will have a different part number for the exact same part. We built into the system the ability to change Units of Measure on the fly. We allow for up to 39 characters for each of the part numbers (yours, your Customer’s or your Vendor’s). We have built in features that handle “What the market will bear” pricing. We even have a “Crystal Ball inquiry” that shows all the product that is coming and going out in the future, so you can “rob Peter to pay Paul” with existing Inventory on the floor.
When it comes to Inventory Management, we have the easiest to use and most sophisticated Automatic Replenishment System available. This system actually examines all the information about usage, on hand position, open Sales Order, open Purchase Orders, Lead Time and Stocking Objective.
Based on the information that it finds, it actually produces Requests for Quotes for items that can be ordered from many Vendors. Then it creates Purchase Orders for things that are always ordered from one Vendor e.g. branded products, or products that have a preferred vendor. Then it looks at the products that must be kitted or processed (plated, drilled, through hardened, etc.) and it creates Processing Purchase Orders for them. Finally, it looks at the raw parts that are going to be needed to produce these products or kits, and it creates Requests for Quote or Purchase Orders for the raw parts as well.
All the documents are already created, eliminating hours of data entry and eliminating errors. You simply review the documents and have the system eMail, Fax or Print them to send them to your Vendors. All through the entire process, you have complete access to all the information that you need in order to make an intelligent purchasing decision.
The Business Edge™ IS EFFECTIVE
In order to be truly effective, a system must be more than efficient. It must not only do things easily, it must do the right things easily. The only way to really know the right thing to do is to immerse oneself in the industry. That is what we have been doing for almost 20 years. We are big enough to properly serve your company and we are small enough that we still have Client Service at the absolute top of our priority list.
With the introduction of The Business Edge ™ we are continuing our tradition of service and excellence. All of our existing clients will receive The Business Edge upgrade at no additional charge. This is unheard of in the Distribution or Manufacturing Software business. We know of no competitor that has done this. Our full Graphical System is not only offered at no additional charge, it also shares the database with our traditional “Wire Frame” Character based screens, so that each user can decide for themselves to use the old or the new system.
Every step of the way, we do things from our Clients’ point of view. Isn’t that what you want in a Fastener Software Company?
