Cutwater successfully integrates with Butler Bros. Epicor P21 ERP to help “right-size” and provide insight into their inventory.
WILMINGTON, DE. – August 6, 2015 – Cutwater Solutions, the designer and provider of Cutwater AIM (Advanced Inventory Management) software, announced today that Butler Brothers, a leader in the machine tool and industrial supply business, has implemented Cutwater AIM to help “right-size” and give insight into their inventory.
Butler Bros. has been serving customers, and filling their machinery and industrial supply needs for over 50 years. With their main location in Lewiston, Maine, this humble family business has grown steadily into a much larger business. With a growing business and new locations it can be difficult to keep track of inventory at their four locations. Butler Bros. was in need of a tool to give them better insight into their inventory.
“This is a no brainer,” said Pauline Cote, Operations Manager of Butler Bros. “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.”
Cutwater provides business owners with several reports that are available every day to make better and more efficient business decisions. Butler Bros. saw the most value in the tool’s dead inventory report which immediately identifies obsolete items and excess inventory reports which help in right-sizing inventory. Pauline also expressed excitement in Cutwater’s rebalancing report which helps balance inventory levels between locations.
Cutwater AIM standard reports identify items within a distributors’ inventory that are out of line with demand. On average, clients using the Cutwater tool have seen over a 10% reduction in inventory and saved several hours of work. The use of Cutwater’s demand planning reports provides business owners and planners with actionable information about trends and forecasting so that they are able to invest in the right products and receive a solid return on their investment.
“We know keeping track of inventory in several warehouses can be a challenge for wholesale distributors,” said Sujit Singh, managing director of Cutwater Solutions. “We’ve designed our rebalancing tool to make visibility between warehouses significantly more clear for management to allow them to make stronger day-to-day purchasing decisions. Cutwater’s reporting tools will help Butler Bros. gain the insight they are looking for. In the process, it will also help users do less data gathering and report building and more actual analysis and decision making, which means they will be able to add more value to the business.”
