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.

It's a very easy to use program that makes consignment inventory run seamlessly!
Ease of use
When adding new items there can be glitches that won't you add an item. infrequently but it has happened to me a few times.

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.
Tracking the consignment inventory is all done electronically, which is a very nice feature.
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.
Get the representative involved every step of the way. Could not have done it without him!

We have been using the PC system for years and recently moved to the internet based system.
It can be accessed directly from the internet which allows quicker updates without having to re-download software.
There is not a manual to download that steps you through all the bells and whistles.
For an economic solution with plenty of power, this is a great option.

Great product, very adaptable, works well with multiple users and locations.
Can adapt to our needs, reports run as we request, multiple projects.
Can not think of any.
Great product, convey how you would like the program to work and engineers will work with you to adapt the program to your needs.

Dantes from Above Board Electronics
The concepts are simple and the staff is very helpful to implement.
I would like to have seen more ways to collaborate data, an API, import/exporting methods.
Try it hands on and know what you are wanting to do.
LEE from ARBELL ELECTRONICS
Very user friendly and very easy to download info from the system
All is good. Great support from them. Easy to use product. There is nothing to dislike
Make sure that the information being entered is accurate.... garbage in... garbage out. Customers need to realize this aspect
Ignacio from Anixter Inc.
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.
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
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)

Ease of use! Ease of data setup and comprehensive reporting. Willingness to customize to fit my business.
Product is almost ready to go out of the box. Short learning curve!
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!
