Regardless of whether you are an industrial hose distributor or a company that works with hydraulic hoses, you need a system that works for you. If your current hose distributor software requires your team to jump through hoops just to enter orders it might be time to look into something new.
Tribute’s flagship product, TrulinX, was created to make business easier for hose distributors. By allowing you to get tighter control on inventory, there are fewer mistakes and larger increases in productivity and profitability.
TrulinX not only helps distributors complete hose assemblies in seconds, but automatically calculate items such as cut-off lengths, material cost, and labor amounts.
Discover how TrulinX can make business simple for your hose distribution company.
Generate Hydraulic Hose Assemblies Within Seconds
This SMART PART feature saves time and money by allowing hydraulic hose assemblies to be generated in seconds while guiding you through the process.
By cutting down the number of man-hours needed to produce assemblies, you can allocate resources to other areas of the company. Ultimately increasing productivity throughout multiple processes.
Automatically Calculate Labor by Hose Length and Fitting Diameter
The TrulinX hose distributor software helps to save time and increase efficiency by automatically calculating the necessary labor amount for individual jobs. The system will allow you to make calculations based on hose length and fitting diameter to help capture true gross margins.
Automatically Calculate Cut-Off Length
TrulinX has a handy feature that allows manufacturers to quickly and accurately calculate hose lengths. In the system, you can use items such as the cut-off length per end fitting to make calculations quick and easy.
Automatically Generate Serial Numbers and Labels
This feature allows users to set up a standard template for serial numbers connected to the appropriate product categories. Whenever an order is finalized for a hose assembly in one of these product categories, a new serial number will be automatically generated and printed to a label along with the pick ticket.
Improved Customer Service with our Counter Sales Application
Improve customer service at your counter by quickly servicing your customer whether they pay by cash, credit, or applied to their account. There is also an opportunity for customers to make deposits on special orders or back-ordered items at the counter.
Manage Lot Control with Improved Visibility
The TrulinX software allows your team to have flexibility in how they manage lot control. For instance, you can buy in one unit and sell in another, e.g. feet, inches, or meters, while managing all the various cut lengths.
There are also features in the system that will give you visibility into the various lots from Quote/Order Entry while on the phone with a customer.
Create Detailed Crimp and Assembly Instructions
Protect against costly mistakes by having detailed instructions by assembly or component such as crimp specifications, die selection, or assembly procedures.
Easily Load Manufacturers’ Part Numbers
