Customers get ONE solution for replenishment of all supplies

eTurns gives your customers one solution to replenish all their consumables from all suppliers while allowing you to compete for more share of customer spend.

A distributor can offer TrackStock Replenish to its end-customers to replenish all of their consumables from all suppliers using only one solution.  TrackStock Replenish will separate items by supplier -- sending orders directly to the “sponsoring” distributor’s ERP system, while other suppliers’ orders are sent through email.  Meanwhile, the sponsoring distributor can see all the other suppliers’ items and prices so they can compete for that business.

eTurns make it easy to offer consigned inventory to customers

Now distributors can offer consigned inventory to their customers in a risk-mitigated way. eTurns reduces financial risk associated with consigned inventory by capturing all consumption transactions, providing a transaction on which the distributor can invoice, and providing one set of books for reconciliation. eTurns also works in a customer-owned inventory model.

Reduce 100% of procurement costs for distributors by using TrackStock for CMI

When distributors offer their customers TrackStock to do CMI, they are giving them an easy way to automate replenishment with a simple two step process: scan the item and tap to submit. This order then goes directly into the distributor’s ERP system because it is integrated with TrackStock. The distributor no longer spends the time and money to do VMI, to receive orders by phone or fax, to rekey any orders in, etc, because the whole transaction is automated from start to finish.

Reduce 90% of procurement time and costs that customers spend replenishing through an e-commerce site or manual methods

Rather than have a customer use an e-commerce site to re-order, which can take up to 10x longer (Click here to see PDF that lists how eTurns is 10x faster than an e-commerce site), and rather than having the customer walk their stockroom aisles with a clipboard writing down product numbers to fax in once they return to the office, TrackStock offers a simple two-step process for automated replenishment: scan the item and tap to submit.

Reserve parts needed for future demand

eTurns TrackStock helps customers schedule and reserve the items needed for future demand using our Requisitions Module.

eTurns TrackStock lets customers reserve inventory they know they will need for an upcoming job or scheduled procedure for example. This keeps customers in perfect communication with their distributors about upcoming ACTUAL demand, not just forecast demand, an important distinction. This gives distributors visibility into what items are needed in what quantities on what dates.

Reduce Price Shopping

Rather than have a customer use an e-commerce site to re-order, which can take up to 10x longer (as seen in the steps on the right), and rather than having the customer walk their stockroom aisles with a clipboard writing down product numbers to fax in once they return to the office, TrackStock offers a simple two-step process for automated replenishment: scan the item and tap to submit.
