What do our Customers say about us?
Our choice to partner with ASC was the best thing that we ever did for our warehouse distribution center operation. Our labor productivity was dramatically improved, and our inventory accuracy was near 100%. These two reasons alone paid for the system in only a few months. But a real gain was our ability to provide a much better and improved service for our customers. We gained the ability to ship their orders the same day and fill rates were dramatically improved. Ed C., Distribution Manager, Kimberly Clark Medical Products
ASC has been a valued partner since our purchase in 2004. I was the project manager in the implementation. Having worked with other ERP suppliers on various other projects, the support team at ASCTrac software has been stellar in my experience. After dealing with other providers who look for opportunities to upsell or continue to bill for services, ASCTrac has integrity and shown flexibility in their support. They are quick to respond when I have an emergency support call/ticket. They have gone above and beyond to offer solutions and make a point to understand our business to construct acceptable solutions.
