SmartTurn Inc., the leading On-Demand Inventory and Warehouse Management System (WMS) provider, today announced that Associated Global Systems (AGS) has selected the SmartTurn™ Inventory and Warehouse Management System to track its inventory. The system will streamline the pick, pack and shipping process of an item in inventory as it expands its 3PL line of business. SmartTurn's on-demand, enterprise-class solution enables AGS to provide quick visibility to their customers with a scalable footprint at a significant cost savings.

“As we expand our business with new services, SmartTurn WMS 2.0 technology not only addressed our needs but those of our customers,” said Norman Freeman, President of AGS. “SmartTurn's ability to quickly be deployed to multiple sites in a short period of time enables us to serve our not only our existing customers but gives us an advantage in a competitive marketplace as we move our business forward.”

Using SmartTurn's WMS 2.0 technology, AGS will to run its mission-critical inventory management operations to manage thousands of products in its network. With significantly better communications and collaboration with partners and customers, AGS expects real-time inventory and warehouse visibility across the supply chain. The functionality and fast implementation in SmartTurn and its on-demand approach is in stark contrast to traditional enterprise software which would have proven difficult and costly to implement and manage.

“In today's economy, leading companies understand that strategically leveraging technology to reduce costs can increase internal productivity and improve customer service. With many of our customers, SmartTurn's on-demand WMS not only delivers inventory management capabilities but also generates positive cash flow,” said Jim Burleigh, CEO of SmartTurn. “As AGS expands its services through a secure, accessible supply chain network, SmartTurn's cost-effective approach provides immediate impact with long-term benefits.”

SmartTurn has gained wide adoption because of its Web-based model, better known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). SmartTurn's award-winning system offers customers up to 99 percent inventory accuracy starting at $500 per month per facility with unlimited users and transactions. This costs significantly less to deploy and operate when compared to the average maintenance fees of traditional installed software. SmartTurn provides capabilities never offered before in the industry, particularly built-in ubiquitous inventory visibility across customers' selling channel for “sell-side” logistics, as well as with suppliers on the “buy-side” with its unique unlimited user access model. Replacing systems that cost thousands of dollars, and months to implement, SmartTurn can rapidly expose dark spots in supply chains.
