I have used the other software out there and its no where near as quick or reliable. Off the shelf it suits our industry quite well but the team was able to tailor it specifically to our needs. Possibly the most integral tool I rely on daily to turn a profit, brokering is information driven so quick access to relevant data is key.

Pros

All

Cons

None

Since switching to SDS over two years ago we have saved so much time on little things. Our company is in a better place today because of SDS.

Pros

The ability to look for parts and see where we got them from and from who at what cost right at our fingers makes this software worth every penny.

Cons

We have nothing negative to say about SDS. The tech support system is always available and we love the interface.

I have been using SDS since 2007 and it has made every aspect of my job easier. Being a small business it is great to have 1 program do all you purchasing, quoting, inventory control, invoicing, and accounting. I can send invoices, sales confirmations, credit card payment request and all other documents thru SDS via email. It saves time and makes us look great to our customers. The staff at SDS are very helpful and get things done in a very timely manner.

Pros

The cost compared to similar products in the market.

Cons

I don't have enough time to work it better and increase my sales like I know it would.

This software fitted our company perfectly. It's easy to use and saves you so much time. SDS4 is easy on the eye and is a software programme you want to work with just by looking at it. Since using SDS4 we have seen an upturn is revenue, efficiency and a drastic decrease in RMA's and returns.
We looked at countless software packages that were all "ok" but SDS4 blew us away from the very first demo.
If you are looking for distribution software for the Electronics Industry look no further than SDS4.

Pros

Great to look at
Quick order processing (1 click order processing)
Gives managers control with easy access controls
Authorisation order processing
ISO ready
Great value for money
Easy to use
Easy to learn
Complete financial control
Regular updates sometimes daily

Where do I begin. After years of searching for the perfect ERP solution for my electronic component distribution business I finally came across SDS4 Distribution. I literally have been searching for a solution like this for years. We have tried 4 other solutions but SDS BY FAR exceeds all we have used - from functionality, to ease of use, to stability of the program - it's top notch. Unlike many other software solutions SDS4 Distribution is windows-based and has a similar feel to Outlook. It can easily be customized and it's processes are very easy to learn. I called my rep and he promptly took almost 3 hours (!) out of his day to demo the software. Support has been just awesome. After initial install a dedicated account rep is assigned to you for all requests. My rep constantly follows up to make sure all is running well. If you need assistance on the fly, contact one of their reps on Skype and your questions will be addressed immediately. We have been using SDS4 Distribution for the last 6 months and are absolutely thrilled with its capabilities!

This software is awesome. Contact my rep and have him show you what I am talking about. It's just so much better than so many of the big providers. Cost is reasonable. Support is great. Electronic component distributors MUST give SDS4 Distribution a look!
