Hose Distributors: Manage Your Inventory with TrulinX Lot Control

Hose reelsDistributors and fabricators of hose and tube assemblies have unique needs when it comes to tracking inventory.

Most inventory control systems show the total amount of hose or tubing lengths, but have no way to track the various lengths or shorts. This creates a situation where customer service reps have to physically check the warehouse to see what lengths are in stock.

The hose distribution industry requires a sophisticated inventory management system that includes the ability to determine at a moment’s notice which vendor provided you with a product, and which customer took delivery of a specific lot or reel.

Tribute's flagship ERP software package, TrulinX, has a lot tracking system with tools specifically designed for the industrial hose distribution industry. The system allows users to offer better service to their customers and the power and flexibility to comply with vendor and regulatory requirements.

The Lot Tracking system helps you manage your hose & tubing inventory with the following features:
