  • (1888PressRelease) July 09, 2013 - Allentown, PA - Equip-Soft software has gone live at Buckeye Power Sales, which is using the leading equipment distributor ERP system to manage rentals, service, sales and parts for industrial, commercial and marine generators out of Buckeye locations in Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Indianapolis. The company, which is America's oldest signed Kohler power generator distributor, also rents portable generators to contractors and to organizers of outdoor events such as concerts, and for the purpose of storm/emergency backup.

    The 40+ user implementation of Equip-Soft at Buckeye Power Sales includes the addition of a non-serialized component to the Rentals functionality, and adding some key elements to the Advanced Service Scheduling within Service Contracts to manage a very large and diverse set of maintenance agreements.

    "One of our biggest issues, before Equip-Soft, was having multiple locations operating as 'islands unto themselves,'" says Craig Casdorph, Controller at Buckeye. "We had a huge need to streamline and automate processes at all our locations, and we have done just that with the Equip-Soft system."

    Dave Savel, VP, Equip-Soft, says that "although power generation distributors have a similar business model to our traditional material handling equipment customers, the world of power generation has its own very specific requirements that required some creative thinking by Equip-Soft business analysts and the client team. This go-live has been a big success, and we look forward to working with Buckeye Power Sales as a strong and strategic partner in the years to come."

    Phase II of the Equip-Soft implementation at Buckeye Power Sales will include MobileFrame as the interface between the ERP system and mobile devices for field service technicians and sales people on the road, as well as KwikTag for document management, and ChargeLogic for credit card processing within the ERP system.
