From any connected device they can track material to any location, job site, service truck, warehouse, storage facility or point of use device. Its one-to-many and many-to-one architecture provides instant enterprise-wide visibility,” said Scindia Dhanasekaran, VP of Engineering at MarginPoint.
Enabling the modern Distributor to transform their customer’s business and add real value
