Transtar A/C Supply, Inc. Modernizes Multi-Branch Operations with Epicor Prophet 21
Texas distributor updates technology platform to transform inventory and warehouse management processes
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Transtar A/C Supply, Inc. has chosen the award-winning Epicor® Prophet 21® software as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to achieve growth with enhanced tracking and reporting and maintain company culture.
Transtar A/C Supply, Inc. is one of the leading wholesale distributors and exporters of air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration equipment in the greater Houston area. Transtar was established in 1984 from a small single location in Houston, and has now grown to eight locations in the area with over 160,000 square feet of warehousing facilities stocking over 2 million dollars in inventory.
Transtar was looking for a solution that would allow the company to maintain the charm and personality of a small business while also offering the modern, big picture conveniences that a large corporation would have.
“Our small business personality is our bread and butter. Prophet 21 software feels tailored to our company, right out of the box. With the Prophet 21 solution, our customers are getting the same experience at all of our branches, no matter the time of day or year. It’s built for wholesale distribution and through the software we’ll be able to establish our company culture further.”
Detailed tracking and reporting to overcome the plateau
Transtar had been steadily growing, but eventually reached a plateau. After assessing the situation, the company determined that their ERP software was holding them back and it did not have the dynamic functionality needed to take them to the next level. Along with maintaining company culture, Prophet 21 software will efficiently manage the company’s inventory and warehouse. “We are most excited about the level of reporting and the ease of tracking that Prophet 21 software provides,” said Pitt. “Through this tracking, we’ll be able to run dynamic real time reports for purchasing, inventory, and everything else. We have a great staff and we’re confident that they will make great use of the data that Prophet 21 will give us.”
“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. “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.”
