Charter Software, a provider of business tools designed to help dealers reduce costs and increase their profits announced the release of their CODIS-Access Interface for their Windows-based business management system, DealerWin.  The CODIS-Access Interface allows dealers who work with distributors using the CODIS-Access system to submit parts orders to their distributor directly from the DealerWin™ orders screen without needing to leave the system.

The adoption of the CODIS-Access system by distributors is increasing due to the ease it brings to their dealers ordering process. “Because of the CODIS-Access system’s growing popularity among distributors, we felt it was important to include this integration in our business management system,” says Anne Salemo, President of Charter Software. “We have a large number of customers who do business with distributors using the CODIS system, and the numbers are expected to grow. Our integration with CODIS-Access will minimize redundant data entry and speed up the ordering process for these dealers so they can keep their customers as their focal point,” she says.

Matthew Finn, Executive Vice President of Central Power Systems, (one of the many distributors using the CODIS system) says many more dealers are anticipated to sign up to be connected to Central Power Systems through CODIS-Access. “We anticipate a mass of additional dealers connecting to us in the coming months.” 

Gardner, Inc. CFO Ted Finn, also a distributor using the CODIS system, is positive about the dealer response to Gardner’s adoption of the CODIS system. He says, “The CODIS-Access infrastructure will provide a higher level of service to our dealers, decrease supply chain processing costs, and facilitate a significant return on investment for all involved.  It’s a win-win situation.” 

AES Lawn Parts, Atlantic Power, Inc., Central Power Systems, Dixie Sales Company, Engine Warehouse, Inc., Engines Southwest, Gardner, Magneto Power, Medart Engine/Marine, MWE, PES, Power Source Canada, Preferred Power, RBI and SEDCO are all distributors who use the CODIS ordering system, comprising approximately 85 percent of OPE distributors in the US.
