Electrical products distributors face new challenges every minute of every day. Delivering to contractors before dawn, and answering calls for urgent pick-ups are now just as much a part of their normal workday as dealing with a variety of suppliers — industrial, OEMs and individual consumers.
Inventory includes thousands of items of all types, shapes, and sizes, from very small components to large wire reels and conduits.
The desired fulfillment cycle has decreased to less than 24 hours. Customers want to place orders late in the day and still have them delivered early the next morning, particularly to job sites. Urgent pick-ups on will-call add to the challenges.
Distribution operations must be optimized to reduce cost and improve margins.
Traceability and proof-of-delivery have become crucial, particularly to job sites.
Supply chain applications must be robust, with the distinct ability to handle wire cutting inventory management and customer-specific, value-added services.
Connection to and collaboration with enterprise systems such as ERP and automation is essential.
New and/or temporary employees must be onboarded quickly without impacting business.

Together, these solutions leverage TECSYS' supply chain platform to adapt to the ever-changing needs and handle the complexity of the electrical products distribution supply chain.
Visual logistics, a paradigm shift in WMS, optimizes task execution abilities in all warehouse environments. Its visual cues make your users more informed, efficient, accurate, and more responsive to your clients.
TECSYS' agile, scalable, and adaptable platform supports many variable requirements by electrical products distributors such as packaging and labeling, kitting, staging, and information on content which differentiates you as a distributor and drives value-added services to your customers.
Efficient WMS execution combined with visual logistics enables same-day delivery and shorter fulfillment turnaround times of less than 24 hours.
The system gives wire-cutting operators an intelligent inventory of the shortest wire type lengths that most closely match your customer's order. It also provides the next appropriate footage marking where cuts should be made to meet your customer's order, including cutting multiple wires simultaneously. This eliminates waste and improves accuracy so customer returns of short-cut wires and incomplete shipments are a thing of the past.
TECSYS' supply chain solutions interface and collaborate with the industry's most common enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for swift information exchange so your customers' orders can be executed without delays.
TECSYS is an Allied Technology Partner of the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED).
