LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., June 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of 3PL and 4PL solutions for a diverse range of finished goods and replacement parts, today announced it is collaborating with Netsirk Technologies to offer Skulocity, a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system aimed at manufacturers, parts distributors and repair businesses to help streamline their operations and improve efficiency.
Developed jointly by Netsirk Technologies and Encompass, Skulocity is a fully-integrated ERP system designed for small- to mid-sized manufacturers, retailers, field and depot service organizations and parts distributors. Tailored specifically for the Major Appliance, Consumer Electronics and Computing vertical markets, the module-based software provides comprehensive functionality for: order management, inventory control, warehouse management, procurement, discrete manufacturing, accounting, payment processing and customer relationship management.
In a show of support for its industry partners, Encompass is offering to subsidize the full costs of solution implementation and half of the monthly usage fee for the first 25 beta clients – a total value of more than $30,000 per company.
“Encompass is driven to help our diverse customer base succeed in all areas of their business,” said Encompass President and CEO Robert Coolidge. “Skulocity was purposely developed to address each segment of the aftermarket supply chain, and we believe it has the advanced features and functionality to significantly enhance client operations. We are extremely excited to offer this powerful tool as a value-added benefit to our business partners.”
Encompass is fully integrated with Skulocity to provide users seamless access to more than 8 million spare parts and over 500,000 model-to-parts cross references from major manufacturer brands in the Consumer Electronics, Appliance and Computing product categories, among many others. Electronic ordering and real-time status updates are also available through Skulocity. In addition to this fully-integrated data component from Encompass, part photos and easy-to-search parts from a host of other verticals are available to help the service industry expand and take advantage of repair opportunities in adjacent product categories.
Quincy Faison, president of Netsirk Technologies, said Skulocity is an enterprise grade business management system with all the same functionality of SAP Business One, MS Dynamics and Netsuite at a fraction of the cost.
“With Encompass’ extensive understanding of the specialized needs of the aftermarket supply chain, we developed Skulocity as a cost-effective, alternative solution for smaller manufacturers, distributors and repair service companies,” said Faison. “Our software offers the same advanced features and capabilities as much more expensive technology already in the market. Skulocity is ideal for organizations of really any size that need a simple way to manage all facets of their business – from inventory serial number and warranty tracking to service scheduling and dispatching and so much more.”
