Wireless Warehouse

Do More, In Less Time, With Fewer People

Read More

For Class C Components, switching to the wireless warehouse has made a world of difference. We saw instant increases in our efficiency and accuracy. It allowed us to focus on quality personnel instead of quantity because our processes became more streamlined. Inventory getting allocated instantly when picked helped reduce time looking for product and made our picking process much smoother. Having inventory updated when received has also helped us ensure product is shipped out when able and not missed as it is extremely visible. The implementation was a lot easier than we had anticipated, and we were up to speed with everything extremely fast.
Brandon Schulze, Warehouse Manager @ Class C Components

Every aspect of the process is smoother, from Avalara specifying correct tax jurisdictions and tax rates, to remitting sales tax payments to countless jurisdictions across the country. Handling sales tax across multiple states was one of our biggest headaches. Now, thanks to Avalara and Computer Insights, it’s not even a concern.”

“The Business EdgeTM is THE software for the fastener distribution industry. Computer Insights understands the needs of our industry and delivers the software necessary to run a successful business. We moved from two different systems, one of them very powerful but antiquated and the other was brand new but bloated. TBE is the perfect middle ground, it has everything we need without the extra bloat. With ease, we can manage inventory, including document management for drawings and certs. VMI customers are consistently impressed at the level and detail of data we can provide via TBE reporting to help them reduce inventory turns. On top of it all, the staff at Computer Insights is knowledgeable when support is needed and listens to their customers when there is a suggestion for improvement.”

Container Management System

Simple, Focused, & Effective

“We were so excited when the Container Receipts System became available within The Business EdgeTM The process of receiving multiple purchase orders is so easy when done on one container. The system calculates the duty fees, then distributes the freight and miscellaneous charges, and calculates a landed cost for each item—good riddance to the days of the timely receiving process.”
Kerry Gonzalez, Process Manager @ FPC Corporation

Strategic Alliance

Read More

“We were having difficulty managing our list prices in two databases. Our online ThomasNet eCommerce site and The Business Edge are two different systems that, until recently, did not talk to each other. We were duplicating our efforts. We shared our struggle with Dennis Cowhey at Computer Insights, Inc. He collaborated with the people at Thomasnet and created a system that allows us to update our website from information in The Business Edge without the double entry. The new feature saves us a tremendous amount of time and resources.”
Scott Filips, President @ SC Fastening Systems LLC. – Winter 2023
