We equip distributors with the systems they need to compete in today’s IOT world. With Covestone you get much more than replacement ERP software–you get a whole new platform with e-commerce and mobile warehousing apps built in–not added on.
What was ERP?
“ERP” used to mean enterprise wide. Today it usually means just the legacy applications left over from the 1980s. In fact, it’s almost a certainty that your software was designed in the 1970s or 1980s – or is simply a copy of that kind of software.
No business today can ignore the fact that the internet has changed everything. Only a new system built from scratch on internet technology can meet this challenge. “Companion products” are symptoms, not solutions.
Simple, Clean e-commerce with tools for contractors to simplify their business and yours.
Using the web designers and tools you choose, we provide customized web site functionality including rich content, real time order tracking, online payments and more. Covestone is built from the ground up with e-commerce, ERP and mobile apps all working together on a single platform. It offers your contractors direct access to orders and independent access to all their buying data in real time from your site.
7.4 Turns on Inventory
With Covestone’s automated purchasing and warehouse management software our sites are averaging 7.4 turns on inventory. Probabilistic forecasting, minimum remnant optimization and hourly forecasting are just some of the tools we use to reduce inventory, freeing up warehouse space and cash.
Non destructive go-lives
Our users don’t have to pull the plug on their legacy ERP until they are comfortable with every aspect of Covestone. With overnight conversions we can work side by side to ensure it is 100% in tune before go-live.
Covestone was built by leading makers of distribution software. It fully integrates ERP, paperless warehousing, mobile delivery, e-commerce, contractor integration, paperless billing/payment processing and API integration.
Our 10K golang server and 140,000 TPM database support thousands of users on commodity hardware. Covestone is mirrored, so backup is continuous.
Covestone sites average 10-15 enhancements per month. That’s 25 times as many as legacy systems. Customization = Competitive Advantage.
45 years of innovation, serial Best of Breed products, and more of the top 50 distributors than any other product line in the industry: that’s our legacy. And yet Covestone is not legacy software. It is built on the same kind of technology as companies like Amazon.
Single port of entry HTTPS and code-level user request/response monitoring go beyond outmoded firewall technology. And with post-detection document-oriented transaction rollback Covestone takes security mitigation to the next level.
Return on Investment
We haven’t witnessed a productivity boost like this since the1970s. It’s all because we cleared the decks and built from scratch on modern IOT technology – something no legacy software product can do.
Ease of Migration
Our automated, overnight migration software and sandbox training eliminate the pain of “cold turkey” migrations.
