Asset Tracking Software Integrates with Epicor, Sage, Infor and TECSYS Systems
TrackAbout, a technology leader in asset tracking and management for the packaged gas industry, announced that three North American distributors recently selected TrackAbout to integrate cylinder tracking data with their respective business management software solutions.
WESCO Gas and Welding Supply of Prichard, AL recently chose Epicor Prophet 21 as the company’s business management solution, integrating with TrackAbout’s Core Tracking module. “TrackAbout’s primary focus is cylinder management,” said Jenny McCall, WESCO President. “Their ability to integrate with many types of ERP systems allowed us to match them with a ‘best of breed’ ERP system.”
Cameron Welding Supply of Stanton, CA is migrating to Infor Distribution SX.e from the company’s FACTS enterprise solution. They’ll be using TrackAbout’s core tracking and rental modules. “I liked the capabilities of TrackAbout, but didn’t want a stand-alone system,” said Joe Churilla, Cameron Welding President. “Once we saw how seamlessly TrackAbout could integrate with SX.e, we realized we could have all the tracking functions we want. Easy integration was key to selecting TrackAbout.”
WeldWorld of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada is integrating TrackAbout’s Core Tracking, Rental, Proof of Delivery, Bulk Delivery, Palletization, Truck Load, and Manifest modules with Sage 300 ERP. “We’d looked at several cylinder tracking options, but TrackAbout was the only one that would work well with our new ERP system,” said Vic Wilson, Sales and Marketing Manager for WeldWorld. “With our Sage 300 Partner ADSS Global (Edmonton) knowledge of Sage integration options and the advanced integration options of TrackAbout, we are implementing a single point of entry system so that both systems will always be up-to-date as live updates from TrackAbout will enable the ERP to stay current with cylinder balances and inventory.”
Additionally, TrackAbout announced that long-time customer S.J. Smith of Davenport, IA went live with TECSYS Elite, integrating TrackAbout’s core tracking and rental modules. The company previously operated with a custom software system that integrated heavily with TrackAbout. S.J. Smith Operations Manager Eric Smith stated, “We chose TECSYS for its industry-specific functionality and ability to integrate with TrackAbout at the same level as our legacy system.”
“TrackAbout technology is open and flexible which gives our clients the freedom to choose any enterprise system they prefer,” said Tim Fusco, TrackAbout CEO. “We’re currently developing a catalog of standardized application programming interfaces (API) which will make integration even easier.”
