IDCO Co-op, a cooperative for independent distributors serving the industrial community with hose, fittings, gaskets, rubber materials and related products, has announced the addition of their newest endorsed service supplier, MITS.

MITS is the comprehensive reporting and analytics solution that over 1,000 distributors and manufacturers rely on to leverage the data in their business systems to make better decisions. By combining flexible, user-friendly business intelligence tools with premade and customizable reports, dashboards, and scorecards, MITS helps our customers quickly realize value from their analytics and business system investments through improvements in cash flow, profitability, and business growth.

IDCO Member Amazon Hose and Rubber Company has been utilizing the MITS reporting software for the last four years. George Malgoza, Senior VP of Finance and Operations at Amazon Hose, said, “MITS gives us the ability to manage our business on an hour-by-hour basis if necessary. It integrates very easily with our operating system, INFOR SX.E, with very up-to-date information. The ability to have standard reports as well as custom reports is also a huge plus for our company. The sales team also has the ability to see customer reports that allow them to help the customer manage their business better. It has become a very important tool for our company.”
