Understanding technology is one thing. Making it work for the customers' benefit is another. At Wholesale Electric, we do both. In today's intensely competitive environment, companies are constantly looking for savings opportunities in the materials acquisition process. Most often, the real savings in the process has little to do with the direct cost of materials because competition among manufacturers and distributors has virtually leveled the playing field in terms of price and product specifications.

As always, customers want the right material, delivered on time, at a competitive price, but they are also looking for tools to help them better utilize their resources and drive costs out of the procurement process, thus improving productivity and making them more competitive. That's where our Information Technology Services (IT) can help. For all aspects of our business, Wholesale Electric has developed information systems designed to eliminate redundant activities, generate critical information reports, and, above all, to ensure that the right material is delivered to our customers when it is needed (just-in-time). Using our proprietary Material Management System (MMS), our specialists assure that we maintain the right products in the right quantities.

These systems have made substantial contributions, such as:

Improving Efficiency
This innovative system, efficiently tracks customers' requirements, expedites deliveries and provides timely information on the status of orders. Our system, which is tailored specifically for industrial and commercial distribution, has helped us consistently maintain one of the lowest operating costs per sales in the industry by allowing us to do more with less!

Electronic Data Interchange
Our system integrates both proprietary and non-proprietary electronic data interchange into all processes, allowing us to computerize price catalogs, quotations, order entry, purchasing, expediting, invoicing and electronic funds transfer.

Our internet market site provides information on pricing and availability, order entry and order status information on pricing and availability, order entry and order status information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Customized Systems
Our IT team customizes and integrates our programs to work with our customers' database systems, providing an instantaneous record of pricing and purchasing activities as well as materials usage. We not only interface with various electronic market sites, but we also support business-to-business activity directly with our customers, thus eliminating the middleman who adds cost to the supply chain process.

Construction Materials Management System (CMMS™)
Our most powerful tool for capital project management, CMMS™ is an internet-based, real-time system that manages the materials procurement, handling and storage process for major construction projects worldwide. This integrated supply system is a state-of-the-art tool that helps our customers manage inventories of both special and commodity items. The software is tailored to each customer's specific needs, enabling CMMS™ dedicated staff to track material usage instantly, thus ensuring that any potential material shortages are identified and reacted to immediately.This ability to quickly react to project material discrepancies not only ensures that we have the correct material available, it also allows us to order materials only when needed, thus reducing inventory investment and end-of-project surplus. CMMS™ creates a single point of reference for the entire project team, offering global access by engineering, purchasing, construction and accounting.

MRO, Consignments, Integration
We have developed web-based software products that efficiently support all of these functions for both commercial and industrial markets.

Our IT group has been building Industrial Distribution Management Systems for more than three decades. As a result, Wholesale Electric brings a depth of expertise that would be difficult to surpass in anticipating obstacles, pioneering innovations and advancing the state of the art.
