It was the first investment we made. Re- sults to date have been very positive. We have five years of data in the system. Today, it allows us to look at post cost, hone efficiencies, manage inventory, do quotations, participate in electronic data interchange on the order side...” FLX_Feb11_mech.indd 23 2/16/11 8:50 AM
