MITS Distributor Analytics, a comprehensive reporting and business intelligence solution, empowers non-technical users to make better decisions using the data in their ERP and other business systems. With fingertip access to browser-based ad hoc and analytical reporting tools, plus 200+ customizable reports, dashboards, and scorecards, Wholesale Distribution owners and their staff use MITS Distributor Analytics to quickly and easily identify new opportunities to grow sales, increase operational efficiency, and boost overall performance.
All data is sourced from operational systems, data warehouses, and other systems, and reports are columnar, so they can be scheduled to run at certain times, or generated on demand. The results of the reports can be emailed to recipients directly, or they can opt to simply check into the system at their convenience to view the reports.
All reports can be summarized to give a view of the big picture, helping to spot trends or notify of unusual activity. Likewise, a summarized report can be broken down into its individual components with the touch of a button. This can help pinpoint causes for certain trends, providing key insight into any changes that need to be made, and helping to determine what works or doesn't work within the company.
Established in 1996 to serve the wholesale distribution and manufacturing markets, MITS' reporting and BI software is the solution of choice for hundreds of small to mid-size Wholesale Distributors that use leading ERP (e.g., Infor's A+ & SX.e; Epicors's Eclipse, Prophet 21, Prelude, Acclaim; Tribute's TrulinX; and many others) and other business systems.

The development team at mits has aggressively developed all of their products and are very willing to hear and implement the suggestions from their users.
Honestly I cannot think of anything at the moment that I dislike about this product or vendor.
Make sure you can import your personal fields and files into their respective 'cubes' to report on.
Peyton from Wholesale Pump and Supply, Inc.
Good overall response to our questions. The ability to control the views of different user is done well.
The time period breakdowns need to be refined and the user interface needs to be better. The canned reports included in the software need to expand.
Look at all aspects of the software. Be very specific on any specialty reports you need when speaking with your sales rep.

Once the MITS dashboard is set up it can be used by anybody that knows how to use a mouse. Most of the time dashboards with this level of ability are very hard to use.
You have to work with MITS and set this dashboard up correctly. If you do not do the upfront work the dashboard is not as effective.
I have installed MITS in two different companies and both were successful implementations that were used by the intended users. It is especially useful in companies with extensive product ranges or selling territories.

MITS has worked with some of the largest software companies in the world, especially within the world of distribution. They have a deep knowledge of the software, data and intricacies of each. In addition, they don't shun or shy away from being involved in multiple OS's and multiple databases; whereas many others are myopic in their focus. Mits is capable across SQL, Universe/Unidata, and other formats, as well as Windows and Linux-based OS's and their BI GUI is now fully functional on all
mobile platforms - both iOS and Android.
Very little to say here- they've stuck to their guns and where other companies have come and gone, MITS remains.
Those who evaluate software should not only test and review the front-end cosmetic/user-experience while at the same time, keep also keep a similar eye on the "back-end" functionality and it's similar ease-of-use to the Admin. Why should software today be just as "easy" for the end-user as it is for the Admin?

The flexibility and easy user interface. This eliminates I.T. Staff spending time unless absolutely necessary.
They do not offer regular after hours support and the inability to have a test system to try things out.
Look for ease of interface with the existing ERP or MRP system, and ease of use for the end user and that is the case with MITS.
Tyler from Flodraulic Group
It is easy to use, easy to gain insights about our business, and great to use in decision support. I have trained users from executives to customer service, and it has scalability across those management levels.
Sometimes, the cubes take awhile to build. This can limit the useful data available or the time horizons that can be analyzed.
Go through the demos and work with the MITS personnel. They are great at adapting a solution to your needs.
