Specific Advantages for Dixon Distributors

Tribute works closely with Dixon Valve & Coupling to help our software users meet vendor requirements and maximize discounts all while selling the product in the most efficient manner.

  • Hose Assembly Generation
    TrulinX software is designed so that you only need one format for an entire manufacturer's Hose Series. TrulinX walks customer service personnel through a step-by-step process generating assemblies quickly and easily. It even calculates the cut length and labor based upon the length of the hose and diameter of the fittings.

  • Counter Sales
    Easily handle your walk-in business with our counter sale module designed specifically with the hose distributor in mind. It allows for easy entry of items, kits, hose assemblies, etc. In addition, you have a quick and easy checkout process that handles check, cash, credit cards or on-accounts and ends with a very attractive customer receipt and day-end transaction analysis.

  • Serial Number Tracking
    Easily track hose assemblies with our Serial Number configurator and labeling features. With TrulinX, you will be able to print out barcode labels with the unique ID number using BarTender software and easily track eligible hose assemblies.

  • Exporting Purchase Orders to Dixon
    With TrulinX, you have the capability of exporting purchase orders directly to Dixon. Purchase orders can be scheduled to be sent at regular intervals throughout the day and are eligible for the 2% web ordering discount. The export process is built into TrulinX and requires no manual intervention.

  • Easily Update Pricing & Upload New Items
    TrulinX can easily upload new Dixon inventory into your system, whether it is several items or a new product line - saving significant time and money over doing it manually. And you can easily upload Dixon pricing updates into the TrulinX system and entering an effective date.

  • Attaching Images / Graphics / Instructions
    TrulinX allows you to easily attach hose assembly specifications, CAD drawings, images, and specific instructions for warehouse personnel so your assemblies are fabricated correctly from the outset.  You can include these on quotes and send to your customer for verifcation and sign-off prior to doing the job so you know you're all on the same page.
