New Eclipse Product Eliminates Distributors' Paperwork

Eclipse Imaging Suite automatically scans and files documents for instant retrieval by distributors

SHELTON, Conn. -- The new Eclipse Imaging Suite gives distributors fast computer access to customer and vendor paperwork, eliminating tedious manual filing.

Eclipse users can quickly work with scans of invoices or any other documents, which are permanently attached to Eclipse records. No more delays, or filing cabinets.

Vendor invoices can be attached to purchase orders, signed pick tickets can be attached to invoices, and credit or tax forms can easily be stored with customer records. No more time wasted hunting through musty storage boxes. Need a product's photo or technical specifications to help sell your customer? Simply display the Eclipse record.

The compact Eclipse Image Bar shows all images associated with each record, letting users instantly view, copy, print, or fax copies of the original documents.

Distributors love efficiency, time savings using Eclipse Imaging

"Brings the information to you, versus having to go find it," is how Michael Fidanza, General Manager of Ideal Supply Company in New Jersey, summarizes the benefits of Eclipse Imaging. "That's extremely helpful for serving customers."

Ideal Supply Company now employs Eclipse Imaging for vendor packing lists and signed delivery tickets -- replacing overnight shipping of paper receipts to branches. Besides saving filing hours daily, Fidanza claims "immeasurable savings on retrieval."

The Eclipse Imaging Suite was officially introduced at the annual user group conference, held mid-February 1998 in Orlando, Fla. Eclipse customers saw firsthand how the Imaging Suite seamlessly extends the capabilities of the Eclipse system.

HGH Hardware Supply of Birmingham, Ala., is already finding uses for imaging, besides posting hundreds of incoming invoices. Salespeople now scan product specs, while employee files and photos are saved electronically. "It's great for personnel," says Eddie Lewis, Systems Manager for HGH. This leading southeastern distributor will also image over 200-300 shipping tickets a day, using barcodes for automatic indexing.

Imaging keeps employees happy too. Your clerks gripe about having to tediously hand-pull paperwork, which is frequently misfiled when done. Now when customers call, employees have documents just keystrokes away.

Eclipse Imaging Suite an integral part of the "21st Century Paperless Office"

Distributors can eliminate paperwork and filing using the Eclipse Imaging Suite. Go paperless with instant access to scanned documents like signed packing lists, MSDS sheets, copies of checks or contracts, standard forms or hand-written notes. Users can even attach people or product photos taken with inexpensive digital cameras. Best of all, Eclipse Imaging is part of a fully integrated warehouse management system.

Developed with transactional file architecture which enables real-time systemwide updating and seamless integration of new products, the Eclipse system gives wholesalers total control of their operations, increasing productivity and profits. The system and its array of companion software products, including the Eclipse Imaging Suite, were developed by veterans of the hardgoods distribution industry.
