Cutwater successfully integrates with Sunroof Express to increase on-hand accuracy and improve visibility of trending items.
WILMINGTON, DE. – July 21, 2015 – Cutwater Solutions, the designer and provider of Cutwater AIM (Advanced Inventory Management) software, announced today that Sunroof Express, a leader in sunroof and T-top replacement, has implemented Cutwater AIM to improve the visibility of their inventory.
Sunroof Express has been serving customers, and fulfilling their roof panel and convertible top glass replacement needs for over 20 years. Located in Troy, Michigan, Sunroof Express’ expertise with cars and auto insurance companies has allowed them to thrive. With such a trend-based industry, Sunroof Express was looking for a tool that would help increase their visibility and have a more accurate interpretation of their inventory.
“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,” said Wayne Steede, purchasing manager at Sunroof Express. “There’s quite a bit of data that Cutwater aggregates that’s normally difficult to interpret in other data structures.”
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 companies lack visibility into inventory trends for their business and industry. This lack of vision does not allow them to make proper inventory improvements and increase their service levels,” said Sujit Singh, managing director of Cutwater Solutions. “We designed Cutwater with companies like Sunroof Express in mind. Cutwater helps wholesale distributors gain visibility into their inventory through reports, a forecasting tool and workbench which allows business owners to maximize their inventory investment so they can make the right day-to-day purchasing decisions.”
