Toledo, Ohio- March 6, 2006- Technology Group International (TGI), a leading ERP software solution provider, today announced that Pacific Steel & Supply has selected Enterprise 21 ERP software as the replacement package for its existing legacy systems.
As the largest independent nail distributor on the west coast, Pacific Steel & Supply required a fully integrated solution to manage its wholesale distribution business. Mike O'Conner, president of Pacific Steel & Supply, viewed Enterprise 21 as the optimal solution for their enterprise due the software's exception functionality for wholesale distributors.
O'Conner hired an outside consulting firm to assist in the software selection process by creating request for proposals and narrowing the available software vendors based on the company's functionality requirements. The search was then narrowed further by onsite demonstrations, reference calls, and supplier visits.
O'Connor listed the competitive advantages of TGI's ERP software by stating their decision to select Enterprise 21 was based on the following criteria:
o "The inventory management capability should provide a significant competitive advantage for our operation" o "We have found no need for major modifications in the software." o "TGI was the right size company for our needs. I thought by having the ability to interact directly with the president of TGI we would receive the level of service we were looking for." o "The system was user ready out of the box, with features that enable management to effectively analyze the business." o "The implementation process has been well planned and systematic. That has made the transition as painless as possible for this type of activities."
