HUB Industrial Supply

Turnkey installation enables immediate and flexible reporting on operations performance and customer service

Cutwater, the developer of the Cutwater AIM reporting solution for wholesale distributors, announced today that Hub Industrial Supply has implemented Cutwater reporting software that has been preconfigured for Epicor Prophet 21. The implementation will enable Hub Industrial Supply to access inventory and sales data quickly and easily without the installation effort that sometimes accompanies acquiring new software.
Hub Industrial Supply provides a variety of products, including cutting tools, aerosols and safety supplies, to manufacturers and maintenance departments across the U.S. Hub Industrial represents major brands such as Stanley, Morse and DeWalt.

Hub Industrial also offers a broad range of supply chain services, including just-in-time inventory systems that enable its clients to achieve significant cost savings. Accessing cross-functional data, including inventories and sales history, is critical to providing these services.

“Cutwater provides us with the data we need, but the real bonus is the turnkey installation,” remarks Gabriel Curry, president of Hub Industrial Supply. “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.”

Cutwater is preconfigured to report on data that resides in Epicor Prophet 21 and is integrated with Microsoft Excel. Cutwater software provides out-of-the-box reporting features for orders, invoices, purchasing and inventories.

“Wholesale distributors are facing increased pressures due to the tightening economy,” said Jim Heatherington, managing director of Cutwater. “We’re able to provide a significant benefit to these companies without requiring them to take time away from managing the business.”
