Danbury Plumbing Supply Stays Competitive With DDI

Danbury Plumbing Supply has served the Greater Danbury area in Connecticut since 1910. With a 6,000 square foot kitchen and bath showroom plus additional office/wholesale location, communication and accuracy became key components to everyday operations. According to T.J. Hunt, president of Danbury Plumbing Supply, his vision for Danbury Plumbing was the creation of a single software solution that supported his entire supply house.


Hunt began his search for a new solution by speaking to surrounding area plumbing supply houses. Hunt was impressed with the feedback and called Adam Waller, president of DDI System. “After speaking to Adam, I could tell that DDI understood the plumbing distribution industry."


“Within 24 hours, DDI engineers migrated our inventory and customer data into DDI. The next day we were up and running - eager to maximize the solution’s functionality. DDI’s software has totally automated our operations and decreased the chances of human error. In addition, information is available instantly right from the counter terminals.” Showroom sales staff is quickly alerted to incoming product shipments. “When an order arrives at our warehouse, an email is generated by DDI and sent to the appropriate salesperson,” said Hunt. “We can then alert the customer of the available product.” 


Danbury Plumbing enthusiastically takes full advantage of DDI’s customer history database. “When a customer comes into the showroom, regardless if a purchase is made, we enter their information into the system. If a customer does not make a purchase, DDI reminds our showroom staff to make a follow up call.”


Danbury Plumbing has realized impressive ROI with the DDI System's distribution management software.“Without question, the DDI System was responsible for more than doubling our sales numbers by streamlining our business practices and creating sales efficiencies.” “With DDI, our business has been vastly improved with efficiencies in customer service, shipping and revenue monitoring. Our employees can view the same screen with all items entered in one central location — right at their fingertips! DDI truly powers our entire business.”

Wolf Creek Distribution Optimizes Inventory With MITS

Wolf Creek Company is a wholesale distributor of equipment and supplies for landscape, golf course and agricultural irrigation, landscape lighting, water features, lake aeration, fountains, and systems for pumping, waste harvesting, retention and drainage. Founded in 1961, the Dayton, Ohio-based firm serves hundreds of customers in Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Kentucky.


Wolf Creek uses Epicor Prophet 21 to manage its business and run day-to-day operations. That software solution enables the company to carefully manage their business, but there are a number of critical answers the ERP system doesn’t directly provide—answers that are essential to Wolf Creek’s success: inventory and sales.


Through its participation in the irrigation industry’s Virtualrain buying group, Wolf Creek learned that MITS had an analytics solution in use with other ERP’s. The MITS Distributor Analytics solution was prepared to work with Prophet 21 as well. Wolf Creek acquired a server to host the solution, and the MITS team installed and adapted its analytic solution to work seamlessly with Prophet 21.


With the new solution in place, Wolf Creek sees significant advantages already. Now, sales reps can log into the MITS solution directly on their iPads and see how things are going across their entire customer base. With access to deep, item by- item inventory analysis, the company can—in a general way—better decide what to store in what quantities, and where. More specifically, it’s much faster and easier to identify specific instances of too much or too little stock.
