Suppose you were able to get tighter and more accurate control over inventory while increasing productivity at the same time? For a hose distributor, that’s not an easy task.
But, what if you had a tool that could help you generate complete hose assemblies in seconds? Oh, and by the way, this same tool would automatically calculate cut-off lengths, material cost and labor amounts and allow you to automatically generate serial numbers & labels! Well, it’s out there, and it’s called TrulinX!
Tribute's flagship product, TrulinX, was written from the ground up to incorporate the specific and unique advantages for hose fabricators & distributors:
Hydraulic Hose Assembly Generator -This SMART PART feature saves time and money by allowing hydraulic hose assemblies to be generated in seconds while guiding you through the process.
Automatic Labor Calculations by Hose Length and/or Fitting Diameter - Save time and increase efficiency by automatically calculating labor amounts based on the hose length and/or fitting diameter so you can capture true gross margins on all your assemblies.
Automatic Cut-Off Length Calculation - Use manufacturer’s cut-off length per end fitting to quickly and accurately calculate hose lengths.
Automatic Generation of Serial Numbers/Labels - This feature allows users to set up a standard template for serial numbers connected to the appropriate product categories.
