entree overview

NECS entrée is the latest ERP for food distributors, offering functionality for everything from inventory management and truck routing, to sales and reporting.

It is a great system for both full line distributors, and distributors that specialize in everything from produce, cheese, meat, and dairy to beverage and seafood distribution.

Our entree software is a Windows-based, on-premise system for distributors that report from $1 million up to $500 million in annual sales.

This ERP suite contains all the functionality food distributors need to operate their business, including inventory management, order entry, purchasing, truck routing, warehouse management, accounting, and reporting functionality.

Industry-specific features include catch weight management, special pricing for different customers, lot control and tracing, route automation for efficient and accurate routing directions, online order entry, and electronic manifests for delivery drivers.

The system also includes accounting functionality to make food distributors’ jobs easier, with features like commission management and reporting, AR and AP management, and an excellent order entry module.

This system is deployed on-premise and can run on Windows Server 2008, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

The software can meet the needs of any organization. The design of the components that make up the package can be initiated and used as almost separate components. Of course, the most benefit is realized by using all components in harmony, but perhaps there are companies who would not need to use all of the components all of the time. The software can be scaled from a single computer user who just wanted purchase order management to a large network using all facets of the software as needed. The software is infinitely customizable and can easily grow with your needs. The software is easily understood by first time users, and employees with no computer experience can be up and running with a short training time.

Easy to learn and very user friendly. I can always teach new employees to use the system quickly. We like how much or how little information we can get on reports. I always enjoy working with the vendor. They take very good care of us.

First system we invested in the "beta" NECS before "entre'" in 1990's the learning curve was difficult. People from the company came on site to our company with our Start-up and made adjustments on the fly. Today the system has evolved into one of the best wholesale distributor programs in the world. It's amazing how fast NECS caught on but they still cater to our needs. We would recommend Entree to any wholesale company the technology that NECS is offering is second to none.

We are a family owned, full line Foodservice distributor. In 1998, we knew it was time to start making it easier on ourselves and started looking for software that would do everthing we wanted it to. We used to do everything hand written. NECS Entree simplified our operation. We have been using Entree ever since, and going back I wouldn't have done anything different - except get the program earlier. The program is easy to use and easy to train new employees with. NECS has always responded to any issues we may have had promptly. Being able to get programs built to our needs is very important to us. I have recommended this system to other distributors and would continue to recommend NECS. We have been using the iPads for the salesmen, and they love it - except they are limited on what they can do as far as running reports, adding to orders, and making changes in the customers account. Without giving them access remotely, the salesman are limited.
