Our current client base would like to create a Business to Business (B to B) integrated computer system with a distributor or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
The advantage to the dealer is creating a seamless system, but at the same time protecting the dealers proprietary information. The functionality of purchasing and having current pricing is of importance to the dealer. All other information regarding customer records, past sales history, the production of rebuilding are all information the dealer regards as proprietary and according must remain confidential. By creating a buffer in this way, we fulfill our fiduciary obligation to the dealer. The dealer is assured all proprietary data will be kept confidential.
Being cloud based, we can create a link to a Distributor or an OEM that a company or industry could use to always have the current pricing of parts, the availability of parts, Exchange prices, Core Charges, pack quantities all in real time.
Our current system is a malty location, malty department system. If the user’s client wishes to share inventory information, we currently allow all users in a group to share inventory availability with the entire group but not any other information.
The ability to share inventory only with all the members of the group including distributors and OEM is very powerful way of collaborating with others and at the same time maintaining the information that is proprietary information each user has to remain their prehistory information.
Modal Software can tailor a software system for any OEM of Distributor that would consist of one cloud based database the OEM, Distributor. This system would come with one website. This corporate website would have a login for as many Dealers as necessary. Each location would have all activity for Purchasing, Estimates, Work Orders, Invoices and equipment tracking in data base. Each function would have a search field that can narrow the search by location and department. Static inventor data would be universal to all location and departments. Dynamic information (inventory qualities) would displayed by location,
In addition, the OEM, Distributor would have a second database that would function as a data portal to Fresno Truck Center’s vendor/manufacture database. All information to and from the vendor/manufacture (In this case Freightliner Corporation) would be though this real time database. This database would have Inventory and Purchase Order processing. Fresno Truck Center would need to obtain access to Freightliner’s database for the follow data fields.
- Item Retail Pricing. Current retail per all items sold and purchased
- Item Cost
- Rebuilt pricing
- Core pricing
- Package qualities
- Assess to Purchase Orders ( This will be created in the buffer as an Invoice to the client)
- Item inventory would be as per the master item list in the clients and Manufacture’s/distributer database.
Purchase Order numbering would be the sequential numbering per client’s database and a sequential
