TESTIMONIALS - I HAVE MANY IN ALL AREAS OF BUSINESS...
"Dan, I wanted to tell you what a pleasure it is working with you. Our RF Mobile Device arrived on time and is already in use. Your customer service is outstanding!
-Director of Operations, Food Bank, Tennessee.
"Hey Dan, I just wanted to bring you up to date with the end results of your recommendations in the warehouse using Prelude. We have eliminated a huge amount of waste and inefficiencies. We have vastly improved the organization of our inventory both in parts and whole-goods. I would estimate that we have improved floor space by at least 50%. This is to say we have opened up the entire warehouse for any future opportunities. We have had numerous compliments from our vendors and other distributors who have visited us over the course of the last several months. Thanks for coming to our rescue."
- Sales and Operations Manager, Outdoor Power Equipment Distributor, Florida.
"Dan, the inventory accuracy has gone from low 80's to slightly over 96% and is climbing with each cycle. The in-house order tracking ability has made our Inventory Control lives easier than we could have imagined. Plus, the amount of shipping errors has dropped off considerably from our Pre-WMS days." - Inventory Control Manager, Pennsylvania.
"Dan's ability to integrate distribution systems and state of the art technology has enable our company to achieve higher quality and efficiency levels. His value added expertise was clearly evident which contributed to a timely and extremely successful project." - Vice President of Operations, Pennsylvania.
"Dan, your Branch Manager training class is very well organized, it was very well related and seen through my eyes from the branch experience and not management side of corporate. You are extremely professional and knowledgeable." - Branch Manager near Sacramento, California.

His insight in those key areas has proven invaluable as he has helped me to navigate some critical decisions.
