Why Own More Inventory, When You Can RENT it?
What does it cost to own inventory?  Chances are, a lot more than you think.  To make matters worse, owning inventory has recurring costs, every year.  Rather than owning all of the inventory that your end-customers might need from you, consider "renting" some of it.  For the cost of a cup of coffee per day, "rent" millions of dollars of inventory.

Good News for Parker Fluid Connector Group Distributors

All five divisions of Parker Hannifin Corporation's Fluid Connector Group (FCG) now upload Parker-owned finished goods inventories to WarehouseTWO, every day.  Authorized Parker FCG distributors can perform factory stock checks at the WarehouseTWO website, and within their ERP systems, such as Tribute's TrulinX system and Epicor's Prophet 21 system.  The result is easier access to critical product availability information for Parker FCG's wholesale channel partners.

Your suppliers can do this too.  Contact us to learn how.
Good News for Kuriyama Distributors

Kuriyama of America, Inc. now uploads its USA-based finished goods hose and fitting inventories to WarehouseTWO, every day.  Authorized Kuriyama distributors can perform factory stock checks on all five Kuriyama regional USA warehouses at the WarehouseTWO website, and within their ERP systems, such as Tribute's TrulinX system and Epicor's Prophet 21 system.  The result is easier access to critical product availability information for Kuriyama's wholesale channel partners.

NEW FEATURE!
  Separate who receives "Broadcast Request" emails from who receives "Sales Inquiry" emails.  By default, the email addresses assigned to your location records receive both "Broadcast Request" emails and "Sales Inquiry" emails.  This setting can be overridden.  For example, you could have a single email address receive all "Broadcast Request" emails and have email addresses assigned to your location records receive only "Sales Inquiry" emails.  For details, refer to page 11 of our ADVANCED SYSTEM NOTIFICATIONS tutorial PDF.
