Founded in 1953, Filter Sales & Service, Inc. is the largest regional air and liquid filtration product distributor in the Northeast U.S. and number one in Camfil product sales for eight years running. The company provides both cost and energy-efficient solutions for hospitals, hotels, universities, bio-tech companies, and more.
Since many of Filter Sales & Service, Inc.'s products can be purchased elsewhere, the company needs to provide a best in class customer experience to stand out from the competition. When Filter Sales & Service, Inc. began searching for a new ERP system, this was a main focus.
"Prophet 21 and the transparency the system provides will allow us to better predict when we will have certain products in stock, allowing us to follow up with customers right away," explained Jackie Clarkson, operations and process improvement manager, Filter Sales & Service, Inc. "When we have accurate inventory, we save so much time and can focus on the customer and providing what they need. We want to make ordering and receiving product as easy as possible for our customers."
Greater transparency with first-class software The company's previous system lacked functionality and transparency into the lifecycle of its orders. "Our previous system was not built to export data. It was nearly impossible to do it ourselves. I noticed a lack of transparency because no one outside of management was looking at data on a daily basis to make decisions," said Clarkson. "Implementing Prophet 21 will allow sales reps to own every quote they put in the system and see the whole order through. The dashboard feature will also allow employees to see information in real time, across the board. The system will give Filter Sales & Service, Inc. the insight we need to follow up with customers who haven't made a purchase in a while, preventing potential lost sales before they happen."
"The Epicor Prophet 21 solution is a proven success for distributors of all sizes, and the software is becoming more powerful and valuable to companies that need a one-stop shop for their services," said Mark Jensen, director of product management, Epicor Software. "Prophet 21 software offers a combination of features and functionality that can accurately streamline processes. Pricing, inventory and even quoting becomes automated reducing time consumption."
