SmartTurn Customers See Business Growth And Dramatic Savings With SaaS WMS

As the economy continues to impact businesses across all sectors, SmartTurn Inc., the leading On-Demand Inventory and Warehouse Management System (WMS) provider, today announced that a significant number of companies are rapidly adopting its saas wms to gain dramatic savings. Companies have not only increased inventory accuracy, reduced shrinkage, and improved warehouse performance, they have also secured new business through higher service levels and increased customer satisfaction through higher system ease of use. 

“SmartTurn has more than paid for itself in terms of new customers, helping us secure several major OEM deals,” said Kenny Gravitt, Managing Partner at Global Environmental Services. “While we go through the sales process with OEM customers to discuss GES, nothing is as powerful as when we show them the SmartTurn interface where they can visualize the functionality firsthand. And, once we discuss SmartTurn's high level of customer support, it only breeds confidence in GES.”

“In today's economy, cash flow is the name of the game and how you manage your working capital is essential if you're to keep pace with fulfilling orders while optimizing the timing of supplier payments,” said Carlos Rubio, Director of Finance, Grayling Industries. “For us, SmartTurn has become synonymous with 'on time, every time' in our daily operations. The ability to quickly reconcile purchase orders and shipment documentation alone has saved us more than $40,000 a month in trade discounts.”

For companies such as Argent Associates, the SmartTurn WMS has not only become a necessity having proven itself in both implementation cost and time savings but in social responsibility issues as well. A paper-based system has an average of 90% accuracy but that jumps to 99% accuracy with an automated system. Improving shipping accuracy can lower labor costs, reduce time spent re-creating shipping documents due to errors, and present consolidation opportunities saving time and fuel.

“Because SmartTurn is so integration-friendly, we were able to integrate smoothly with our QuickBooks accounting system, which helps both from a budget and process perspective,” said Ray Moya, Chief Operating Officer, Argent Associates. “In addition, we found that paper transactions cost us $73 per transaction, but electronic transactions cost 34 cents, so SmartTurn's SaaS approach delivers additional cost savings.”

Companies are rapidly adopting SmartTurn's integration-ready system because of its strong business process integration capabilities that cover the entire cash-to-cash cycle, including Web storefronts, ERP systems such as SAP ( and Oracle (, or procurement systems like Ariba ( through industry-standard web services. With an ever-increasing number of small- to medium-sized enterprises requiring real-time inventory control, order and warehouse management along with the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively in real-time, SmartTurn makes a company's inventory data even more accurate by providing timely inventory levels direct from the warehouse.

“For the typical distribution operation, supply chain systems are mission-critical systems that provide the information necessary for strategic planning and profitability. The problem is that those traditional systems are cost-prohibitive and deliver below expectations,” said Jim Burleigh, CEO of SmartTurn. “What SmartTurn customers are experiencing in new business acquisition and cost savings within the supply chain are typical with our inexpensive, yet powerful set of functionality. Our SaaS approach provides a competitive advantage that enables our customers to not only survive but to thrive in any economic climate.”

With its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) approach, SmartTurn can quickly deploy an enterprise-class WMS with proven integration to customers. End-users can choose from flexible integration options while reducing costs and increasing efficiency with no added on-site labor. In addition, integration of inventory and warehouse transactions with other business applications such as Web storefronts, point-of-sale (POS), or CRM systems ensure that SmartTurn works from the start.
