HOUSTON, Texas—Mincron Software Systems, a leading provider of complete solutions for durable goods distributors, today announced that Lion Plumbing Supply, Inc., a leading distributor of pipe, valves, fittings, fixtures, tools, supplies and accessories, is implementing Mincron SmartDistributor™ Solution for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and will use it to consolidate business-wide operational processes and will also implement Mincron ScanSmart™ Application to enhance their use of RF (Radio Frequency) Technology for barcode scanning. Lion’s use of Mincron solutions will powerfully reinforce business efforts to stabilize cost-effective inventory management, improve employee efficiency, and streamline order processing.

“The time is right for Lion to gain all the advantages of a partnership with Mincron and their comprehensive SmartDistributor ERP system,” said Paul Gentile, President and COO of Lion Plumbing Supply, Inc. “The complete automation of our business will allow us to further enhance the ways we serve our customers which, in turn, positively impacts the way our customers serve their customers.

The use of SmartDistributor with ScanSmart allows wholesalers to maximize efficiency with full integration of an ERP System with RF Technology to “go paperless” with barcode scanning and accurately track, manage, and replenish inventory while reducing handling and repackaging.

“Mincron knows our business inside and out,” said Pauline Levesque, Controller/IT. “During our ERP solution evaluation process, Mincron’s “hands on” approach and expertise was clearly evident in their software and distribution business expertise. We’re very confident that Mincron will be there for us every step of the way.”

“We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Lion Plumbing,” said Wendy Berger, President of Mincron Software Systems. “Lion is a company a lot like us: they’ve been around for a long time, they’re experts at what they do, they’re focused on customer service, and they treat their customers and employees like family. These important similarities will make for a strong, productive relationship.”
