It’s our Fastener Industry focus that makes the difference.

The Business Edge™ is the only system specifically designed for fastener companies.

The Business Edge™

People who use The Business Edge™ have fewer employees per million dollars of sales than other fastener companies. Whether you are selling commercial, mil-spec, or aerospace parts, our Industry focus makes the difference.

Simple

You need a system that will handle your complex needs, yet be easy enough for your existing personnel to use. The system has to be easy to understand. It needs to handle all the transactions that your business requires. You don’t want to have to use “workarounds” to get your work done.

When you must do something outside your software, you introduce errors and confusion. Your software must be both comprehensive and easy to use. Easy to use is easy to say. Most software does not deliver on this promise. We do.

Focused

The Business Edge™ is designed strictly for the fastener fndustry. The software is deep. It handles all aspects of the industry, from distribution, to manufacturing, to vendor managed inventory and more. Lot control, traceability, quality assurance, document scanning and certificate management are all fully integrated.

Our industry focus pays off hugely for our customers since it completely eliminates the usual “communication gaps” that occur when the business people are trying to explain to the technical people what is needed.

Effective

In order to be truly effective, a system must be more than efficient. It must do things easily, and it must do the right things easily, and it must eliminate mistakes. The only way to know the right thing to do is to be immersed in the industry. That is what we have been doing for over twenty-five years. We are big enough to properly serve your company and we are small enough that we still have customer service at the absolute top of our priority list.

Client Testimonials

Read the reviews from many of our happy clients

Neal Lober
Neal LoberVP of Business Development at Allied Inventory Systems

“The Business Edge™ has been and continues to be a critical part of Allied’s expansion plan. As the company’s core ERP system, Allied wanted to retain as much information and process control as possible inside of “The Business Edge™ instead of running separate systems.”

Tom Tumbarello
Tom TumbarelloPresident of Brico Industries

“Our decision to go with Computer insights as our vendor, turned out to be one of the best things we have done. It was easier, smoother and allowed us to grow at a faster rate and it has made Brico stronger. We ended up with a partner in Computer Insights, not just another vendor.”

Bill Donahue, Jr
Bill Donahue, JrVP of Arnold Supply, Inc.

“With “The Business Edge™, we have been able to setup a Vendor Managed Inventory program on an international level. They have the same philosophy that we do, deep knowledge and intense commitment to customer service. What could be better?”

Matt Goldberg
Matt GoldbergPresident of AMPG

“AMPG has realized so much benefit from the system, that while our sales volume has more than doubled in the last few years, and the number of lines shipped has gone up 64%, the number of people in shipping went from 15 to 3, a reduction of 80%, while errors dropped to virtually zero.” Our sales team also became so much more productive as the volume of expediting calls dropped precipitously, as orders now ship the same day we receive them”
