xTuple, World’s #1 Open Source ERP, converges on Distribution groups

New supply chain management benefits revealed to IMARK Group members and NAED National attendees

NORFOLK, VA – March 25, 2014 – Long-time distribution executive Stacey Pandeloglou and software engineer Tom Atkins demonstrate xTuple’s profit-improving open source software at two distribution-focused member group events.  xTuple’s Distribution Edition is business management solutions specifically designed to meet the needs of the electrical, HVAC, plumbing and industrial supply marketplace, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), accounting and corporate/customer relationship management (CRM).

IMARK GroupThe IMARK Showcase is a forum for IMARK Members and Member Service Providers (MSPs), such as xTuple, to connect with senior leadership of industry-leading companies. This year, the IMARK Showcase is held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago, Illinois, from Tuesday, March 25, through Thursday, March 27. xTuple offers a modern, feature-rich ERP to IMARK members at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than what many are currently paying for maintenance and support on their existing software.

NAED Allied PartnerThe National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) National Meeting provides the industry’s best distributors and suppliers a chance to meet with exhibitors to discuss products and view demonstrations of products. Attendees include senior level and national account executives focused on manufacturing and distribution. This year, the NAED National Meeting will be held at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis on Sunday, April 27, and Monday, April 28. xTuple is proud to be a member of the NAED Allied Partner program.

For each event, attendees can schedule a one-on-one meeting with Stacey Pandeloglou for a thorough demonstration of the features in the Distribution Edition. The features (see xTuple Distribution Edition for full feature list title)  can improve efficiency for any wholesale distributor.

Unique among ERP software vendors of any size, xTuple has committed to delivering the full functionality of its legacy Desktop Client in the company’s Mobile Web application.

Key features and benefits that Pandeloglou and Atkins will exhibit at the IMARK Showcase and NAED National include:xTuple Mobile Scanner with Motorola MC40 Android

  • Platform-agnostic – xTuple ERP runs on any operating system whether Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix, allowing companies to leverage existing desktop, laptop or mobile device hardware and technologies.
  • Portability – With the Mobile Web application added to classic desktop functionality, companies can monitor and run their business from anywhere at anytime. Now available is wireless barcode scanning via the Motorola MC40 and other Android-based devices.
  • Profitability – The Sales Analysis Dashboard, also integrated with the Mobile Web application, makes it is easier than ever to visualize company data. This level of Business Intelligence (BI) allows the user to drag and drop measures to construct a table and evaluate current status and review trends.
  •  Efficiency – Selling online is better than ever with the ERP-integrated eCommerce solution, xTupleCommerce. Business and retail customers can order directly from a company’s internal or external vendor-supplied catalog, and xTuple ERP will automatically update, providing real-time inventory, pre-set customer-specific pricing, and elimination of double entry of data.
