An OS/400-based distribution program is replacing a PC-based program at FBM Trading Company, a Fort Worth, Texas, provider of specialty diesel engine parts for Detroit Diesel and Cummins Diesel engines operating in a variety of industries. DMS Systems of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, won the bid with its Distribution/Express suite of customer, inventory, and financial management applications.
The move up to 64-bit technology is a satisfying move for FBM Trading Company, says Bryant McNeely, a vice president with the company. "We are excited to be working with DMS to help us implement new, 21st-century software and hardware technologies that will allow us to grow our business and customer base, as well as increase warehouse productivity and overall profitability," he says.
In addition to the core Distribution/Express suite, DMS will be implementing several other applications at FBM Trading Company, including: the Qwik-Order B2B parts portal; the Qwik-Order Direct B2C retail customer Internet ordering system; the Qwik-Scan wireless barcoding system; the Qwik-Look business intelligence executive dashboard; and the DMS-IQ executive query and reporting tool system.
