How We Help

Our approach is to first define what it is that you want to accomplish, then we help you select the software package and manage the implementation to ensure a successful transition. There are literally hundreds of different ERP and WMS systems on the market. Each package has its own industry niche and provides functionality that may or may not fit what you need now and in the future. We have knowledge of what is offered, we know what questions to ask, and we know how to manage the purchase contract and implementation to maximize your value at the lowest cost, and minimize your risk.

“Kocer Consulting and Engineering improved our distribution efficiency. We asked them to quickly improve and fine-tune processes with the equipment and computer software that we already have. We were kind of locked into our existing software because we are tied in with thirteen other manufacturers to produce for one major distributor. Dan helped us use our software to it's full extent so that we can now track inventory and ship product with greater precision. This and other approaches allowed us to improve inventory accuracy, order accuracy and order efficiency. Kocer also helped us to modify our distribution processes and use best practices so we get the work done with fewer people."
