Computer Insights has spent two decades designing and adding features to The Business Edge,TM driven by listening to customer requests. Continuing along these lines, they are excited to announce a new strategic alliance with Thomasnet a Xometry Company.

The Business EdgeTM by Computer Insights, Inc. is an ERP software system that allows distributors of fasteners and industrial supplies to do more, in less time, with fewer people. Their fastener industry focus makes the difference. The Business EdgeTM helps companies across the United States and Canada, ranging from four employees to over 500.

Eliminate Double Entry

Users of The Business EdgeTM that have a website powered by Thomasnet can take advantage of new features that allow them to update their website pricing and package quantities directly from the live information stored in The Business Edge.TM Maintaining a single database and putting an end to double-entry saves time and eliminates errors.

Product Information When You Need It

Product images and landing pages are helpful tools for salespeople and account managers. The Business EdgeTM now lets you see your Thomasnet product images on any screen you view your product, including product inquiries, entering sales orders, and entering purchase orders. You can also click on a hyperlink that will take you directly to the product landing page. Empower your team by giving them the information they need when they need it. Showing everything on one screen while you work increases the accuracy and speed of responses to customer questions.


What People Are Saying

“We were having difficulty managing our list prices in two databases. Our online Thomasnet eCommerce site and The Business EdgeTM 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 EdgeTM 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

“Viewing our Thomasnet product images inside The Business EdgeTM and seamlessly clicking a link to the product landing page for additional data has helped the sales team significantly with inquiries.”
Russ Powers, Web Developer @ Monroe Engineering – Winter 2023
