Information Systems and Technology

We utilize scalable information systems and technology to provide support for all of our operations. We utilize a proprietary state-of-the-industry ERP system. Over the years, the system has been upgraded and customized for our operations and allows for the seamless integration of financial, operational and administrative functions. Each of our locations is connected to our computer networks through dedicated data lines. These systems are protected by the support of recognized security systems, and we maintain a disaster recovery system that provides for the back-up of our data.

Our automated bar-coded inventory system allows us to track and manage our inventory on a real-time basis. With more than 43,000 reels across eleven distribution facilities, our information technology systems allow complete traceability of our products through the entire supply chain from our suppliers to delivery to our customers. We also developed a proprietary cable management system that allows our customers to review online the wire and cable products designated for specific projects, release orders for shipment and review previous shipments.

In 2004, we augmented our ERP system with the implementation of a CRM platform for customer relationship and sales force management, which allows for advanced customer management in a secure environment.
