Providing value through specialization
IBS Electro is IBS’ industry specific ERP software solution for electrical and electronic equipment suppliers. The solution meets this industry’s management needs, reducing supply chain costs and providing a fast return on investment (ROI).
IBS Electro ERP software provides a full view of the company's business processes (warehouse, supplies, finance, customer service, etc.) and integrates all company data within a single application.
A single and constantly updated source of resources saves significant time and money and makes it possible to conduct profitability analyses in relation to customers, products and families of products as well as customer/product profitability.
In addition, a Business Intelligence module facilitates and improves strategic analysis, planning and decision making. It makes it possible to monitor key performance indicators (KPI) and return on investment, as well as to analyze profitability by partner or product.
IBS Electro ERP software solves the complexities involved in managing the commercial situation by customer. For example, customers can be divided by category in order to calculate the discount applicable to each. IBS Electro easily integrates with any platform in the market, facilitating order dispatching and receipt invoicing to and from suppliers.
IBS Electro ERP software enables an efficient warehouse management, one of the most critical areas for an electric equipment distributor, taking into account supplies, orders received, seasonal products, etc.
The solution supports various types of organizations – centralized and decentralized, with single and multiple warehouses, and with simple or complex distribution structures. In addition, its IBS Integrator module ensures full integration with the customer’s other systems.
IBS’ customer portfolio includes the leading electrical equipment distributors, such as Fogliani, Casa das Lâmpadas, Mayflex, Franchini, Wever & Ducré, General Electric Lighting, Elektroskandia and Power & Signal Group, among others.
