“With Cutwater, we were immediately able to reduce our inventory by 7% which represented a 1500% ROI within the first 3 months of usage. We are now using real analytics and data to do the ordering, leading to significant improvements.” After only 5 months, “…we have seen a 24% reduction in our inventory levels… at the same time, our sales are up dramatically; Cutwater is making a substantial difference in our inventory costs.” — Will Snook, Traffic Safety Store.
“This is a no brainer, I know for somebody like me, who used to take the time to collect the data from our Epicor P21 and run the reports, it’s simply not worth it. Now, with Cutwater, I have all the information I need at my fingertips. This has greatly cut down the gap between data and decisions and we are able to create value much quicker. I see a lot of value and I know we will see our money’s worth in just the first few months.” — Pauline Cote, Operations Manager, Butler Bros.
“Identifying the products that could become dead, is probably even more important than knowing which products are already dead. We didn’t have those capabilities before. There was never an easy way to do that. Now, with Cutwater, we put in the right filters, and boom, we have it.” — George Hlinka, VP Finance & Administration , Shrink Packaging Systems.
“I see Cutwater’s value. I see it not only in reducing the amount of time we will spend on reporting now that we won’t have to rely on excel reporting. There’s quite a bit of data that Cutwater aggregates that’s normally difficult to interpret in other data structures.” — Wayne Steede, Purchasing Manager, Sunroof Express.
“Cutwater provides us with the data we need, but the real bonus is the turnkey installation. Everyone can now create the reports they need, and we didn’t have to do anything to make this happen. It was truly plug and play.” — Gabriel Curry, President, Hub Industrial Supply.
“You can’t manage what you don’t measure, and Cutwater provides us with the ability to measure all aspects of our business.” — P.J. Glauber, Vice President, Glauber Equipment Corporation.

“As business conditions become more challenging, our market becomes less predictable. To react quickly, we need data. Cutwater gives us the information we need to make quick decisions that are better for our customers and for us.” — John Zitter, President of Sterling Supply Company.
“Cutwater AIM provides instant access to our inventory information, which includes more than 4,000 SKUs, and puts it all in one, easily accessible place. We were pleased to see how neatly the information was packaged and how much time was saved by using the software.” — Jason Swanson, Director of Purchasing and Distribution at HobbyTown.
“We have used other reporting systems before and we were always having to design our own reports; with Cutwater, we got prebuilt reports which immediately identified the imbalances in our inventory thereby significantly reducing the time to value. We had recouped our investment many times over during the first week of real use of the software.” — Will Snook, Traffic Safety Store.
