Tourtellotte Solutions Brings Serious Sourcing to Medium and Small Business with Release of RockBlocks® SaaS

A 'Whole World' of Sourcing Savings Opens Up for Smaller Retailers, Apparel and Footwear Manufacturers

WAYLAND, Mass., Sept. 18 / / -- Tourtellotte Solutions, a global leader in off-the-shelf and custom supply chain software for the retail, consumer goods, and biopharmaceutical industries, today announced the debut of its RockBlocks(R) SaaS sourcing solution. RockBlocks as a service offers many of the features and capabilities of the RockBlocks Enterprise product used by retail and manufacturing giants worldwide, but at a lower initial and capital cost. This puts the considerable competitive advantage of automated, streamlined, customizable sourcing within reach of smaller businesses.

With RockBlocks SaaS, there is no up-front license fee and no need for additional hardware, but customers still receive world-class customer service. "Businesses tell us that RockBlocks 'forces' best practices," said Ed Tourtellotte, CEO of Tourtellotte Solutions. "This gives a huge boost to smaller ventures -- especially the many retailers and footwear and apparel manufacturers accustomed to using spreadsheets for sourcing. RockBlocks SaaS opens up a whole world of savings, efficiencies, and opportunities for them."

RockBlocks SaaS allows medium-size and small businesses to decrease logistics and sourcing expenses, reduce inventory-carrying costs and shipping charges, improve available-to-promise accuracy, increase direct import volume, speed the design-to-delivery cycle, and reduce systems support and operating costs -- and thereby increase profit margins.

The RockBlocks SaaS system is fast to implement, runs the latest release of the software, has full administrative support, and will be hosted in a secure environment. It manages the full range of sourcing categories -- product, order, logistics, and finance -- and features multilevel security, a secure repository with limited access, e-mail and SMS alerts, and remote access from any browser in the world. Not only does it offer custom configuration, workflows and field labeling, but custom queries, too. "Customers particularly appreciate that they can integrate their own processes into RockBlocks: they define how the applications will work for them," says Tourtellotte.
