Mount Laurel NJ & Seattle – February 14, 2017 – Distribution One, a leading provider of comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for wholesalers and distributors, and MITS, a leading provider of reporting and analytics software for distributors and manufacturers, today announced a partnership to launch MITS Distributor Analytics for ERP-ONE. The partnership is designed to meet the needs of ERP-ONE users looking for trending and advanced analysis of transactional data across their distribution operation.

The MITS Distributor Analytics for ERP-ONE platform addresses the reporting and analytics needs of most roles and types of users across a distribution business, including power users, executives, and non-technical staff. MITS simplifies and streamlines access to data within ERP-ONE, providing timely, actionable insights built on a trusted single source of data. The add-on solution ships with a suite of pre-made content, reports, dashboards, and scorecards that often address the majority of a distributor’s analytical needs out of the box.

“MITS is a leader in the data and analytics industry. Partnering with them will enable our customers to gain visibility into all their valuable data stored in their Distribution One software. The investment in technology will enhance our customers’ user experience, allow them to keep pace with competition, and take advantage of growth opportunities in the market.”


Brian DeSpain, general manager of Global O-Ring & Seal, said:

“We’ve been a happy Distribution One customer since 2010 and recently started looking for a better way to visualize our ERP-ONE data. When our account manager at Distribution One suggested we take a look at the MITS solution, we listened. MITS offers us more than just advanced reporting. It allows us to view and present our data exactly how we want, consistently and automatically. And it lets our sales reps and quality staff use our operational data to make better decisions every day.”


Mickey Lass, senior vice president of business development at MITS, said:
