eTurns is a cloud-based inventory management solution that helps distributors and their customers automate inventory replenishment at the point-of-use (stockrooms, service trucks, etc.) using smartphones, scanners, RFID and IoT weight sensors. It’s suitable for health care clinics, EMS, contractors with service trucks, manufacturers, municipalities and more.

eTurns enables users to give real-time visibility into stock levels, manage consigned or customer-owned inventory, set minimum, maximum and critical levels, get reports and analyses, email alerts and set user permissions. Contractors with trucks can create work orders with parts, kits and labor used on a job and present it to the customer for signature. Healthcare clinics can requisition supplies needed for a future surgery through direct integration with the distributor’s ERP.

Pricing is subscription-based.

The configuration part at the beginning is somewhat complex but once defined the system works very well.

Professional, quick response and Ron was always available to guide through process getting started

Nefco is just starting to commercialize the product but this software should increase our business and keep our competition out through inventory management.

Pros

The ability to bill material against multiple jobs thorugh use of work orders
The scan feature and bar code functions are premier and easy to setup.
The platform is customizable to any user level and the ability to take out unneeded information is key

Cons

I wish a master control could be used to set the views (gears - options ) for views. When building many users to a stockroom, it takes a good amount of time to individually go in and customize views.

eTurns is a good program and professionally supported.

A tool that did our job. A job that brought good value to our customers.

Pros

It works. The team is great when we needed modification or technical assistance. Allows at a reasonable price abilities that hard to find.

Cons

We only needed a few of the extensive choice of functions. Added some overhead that is just in the way.

Enjoyed the ease of use

Great for startups, and for businesses that are stuck doing manual inventory. I can't stress the ease of use.

Pros

Web based solution that provides access to everything that we need, when we need it. Multiple users at no cost, and the ability to control what they see or do with the software.

Cons

We haven't found any at the moment. Perhaps some minor UI adjustments, but again nothing that would be a deal breaker.

NEWMAN E-TURNS

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.

eTurns Web Based system

We have been using the PC system for years and recently moved to the internet based system.

Pros

It can be accessed directly from the internet which allows quicker updates without having to re-download software.

Cons

There is not a manual to download that steps you through all the bells and whistles.

eTurns has managed our customers' stockroom inventory successfully for 10 years

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."

eTurns - Customer RIM system

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/3 is solid package we've used to manage the consigned inventories at our customer accounts.

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.

eTurns meets our needs as a customer

Pros

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.

Cons

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

Using ETurns to manage inventory in a consigned environment

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
