eTurns Software


 

eTurns is cloud-based software designed to manage remote stockroom inventories with eVMI sensors, iPhones/Androids, scanners or RFID. It aims to help customers optimize inventory at the point-of-use in order to reduce costs and deliver improved service levels. The system specifically targets distributors who want to get real-time visibility into their customers' stockroom inventory and to automate replenishment; health care organizations that need to optimize inventory in remote stockrooms and contractors who need to manage parts and labor on service trucks.

One solution they offer is eVMI—fully automated inventory management using sensors. eTurns places sensors under bins of parts on a mobile cart or stationery rack. eTurns eVMI measures the weight of those bins regularly. When the weight falls below a minimum, a replenishment order is triggered and sent to the distributor’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. eTurns' price includes unlimited users. It can be installed in a few hours, with or without an ERP/WMS system, and requires no upfront IT costs.

Value for Money

The product is very good. A Little bit cumbersome at the start, but once the kinks were ironed out by the customer service representative works well.

Pros

Tracking the consignment inventory is all done electronically, which is a very nice feature.

Cons

Setting up new parts after initial set-up is a little confusing at first and you need some kind of a "cheat sheet" every time you want to add an item.

Advice to Others

Get the representative involved every step of the way. Could not have done it without him!

Anixter is a distributor of advanced cabling and we've used eTurns/3 remote stockroom inventory software for over 15 years to help us manage the consigned inventories at our customer accounts. eTurns provides us with a solution that allows us to invoice on consumption, replenish as necessary and use one set of books to reconcile inventory. We are excited to move to eTurns/4 which is a browser-based solution. it is geared to our needs and that's another plus.

Likes Least

We wish they couldn't sell it to our competitors because it ends up being a good differentiator for us in sales engagements. Due to reasons beyond my control, this used to be the case prior to me joining the team

Recommendations

Don't be confused looking for the wrong category of software to gain visibility into inventories at your end-customer locations. You can't use your ERP or Warehouse Management System to manage your stockroom inventory. You need software that is specifically designed for managing inventory at the point-of-use, whether it is for OEM (direct material building products) or MRO (maintenance of plant and equipment)

We use this software not only to send advice of offsite inventory consumption but also to manage the inventory levels in those sites. I can be more than just a tool for consumption!

Gexpro Services, a world-class distributor, is all about service. Our business model is to provide onsite VMI to our customers. eTurns provides us visibility into our customers' inventories and automates replenishment which reduces our cost-of-sales to a minimum. Because eTurns helps us optimize our customers' inventories and deliver great service levels, our customers reap the benefits of this value-added service. We have used all 4 of their tracking technologies -- iPhone, eVMI sensors, RFID, and scanners and they've all worked well for getting us real-time inventory status and managing that inventory. Their support is definitely a strong point - the team over there is VERY responsive."

The eTurns system is mostly intuitive to use. The amount of time required for training has been minimal for our internal personnel as well as our customers, who are the end users.

The ability to access the system on the web allows us and our customers nearly unlimited options to access the system, provide reports, and to trouble shoot system or user issues.

The support, from the initial start-up and follow up to operational issues has been very good. The staff of eTurns have been very responsive to our needs and support of the site. They have all been engaged in their support of their system which allows us to better support our customers. There is a feeling a TEAM in our relationship.

eTurns allows us to invoice on consumption, replenish as necessary and use one set of books to reconcile inventory. eTurns helps maintain control of consigned inventory. eTurns provides a very smooth way to track exactly what the customer used and needs to pay for. Without it, we would have a lot more confusion and negotiations with customers. While eTurns/3 offers diverse functionality it is client based software versus browser based. The new eTurns/4 platform (launched in 2015) is browser-based and offers users the same diversity of scanning options as well as additional functionality.

We have standardized on the ETurns software to manage out consignment inventories in the field. We feel the ease of use and it flexibility provide us with the tools to satisfy our customer needs as well as balancing our internal systems and audit requirements.

Pros

The ETurns product is easy to use and adapted well to our system. It allows us to manage inventory in multiple scenarios. This flexibility fits well with the many disparate customer systems we encounter.

Cons

Like any new software, it takes a bit to understand the ins and out of using it. It was not a long period before we were up and running
