Do You Want Overpriced ERP Software for Your Distribution Company?


Email | Print

Are you looking for an ERP system that will cost you at least $1 million, take 2+ years to implement, and require extensive customizations by experts in fancy suits? Sorry, Microsoft Dynamics GP is not the right choice.

But if you are looking for a strong financial and distribution software system that can be implemented out of the box in a short amount of time, for a fair price, by an honest local business partner – then you should look at Microsoft Dynamics GP with SalesPad.

Check out this case study, How a Multimillion Dollar Distribution Company Implemented Microsoft Dynamics GP in Just 12 Weeks with Zero Interruption to Customers, about Amax Inc. (a former subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker), a local distribution company here in New England. A few key points:

  • Implemented in 12 weeks with zero interruption to customers and low learning curve for their internal team.
  • “Cloud” deployment means easy remote access and no maintenance.
  • Knowing true cost of inventory allows Amax to control erosion of margins and make precise pricing decisions.
  • Ability to quickly locate real time data on sales, inventory, and business metrics in one place (instead of in 4 separate systems).
  • 360 degree visibility by the entire team means information is no longer locked within separate departments.

CAL Business Solutions has been working with distribution companies like yours since 1982. In the case study, Gary Blanchette from Amax described us as “nuts and bolts guys.” He’s right – we don’t wear fancy suits or close deals on the golf course. We are just a practical, hardworking team that has built our reputation by implementing the right software system to solve our customers’ issues at the right price. We don’t try to sell you extra bells and whistles that you don’t need, just because they look nice. We don’t speak in “techno jargon” or bore you with fancy powerpoint slides. We will give you honest advice, clear goals, straightforward answers, and a software system that works.

I invite you to watch a video overview of Dynamics GP + SalesPad at www.calszone.com/bolts. Or download our popular white paper “30 Questions Every CFO Must Ask About the Cost of Accounting Software” which gives insider tips on how to save money and avoid the hidden costs of ERP software.

Then call me at 860-485-0910 x102 or drop me an email to schedule a complimentary Discovery Call. During this call I can help you evaluate your current processes and systems to determine whether Microsoft Dynamics GP + Salespad would help you reach your goals. No pressure, no commitment, just honest advice from the “nuts and bolts guys” of ERP/distribution software.

We run our projects the way we run our business - do what needs to be done, do it right, and do it at a good price. And we want to work with companies like yours who value the same principles.
