Software for importers & wholesale distributors

4.57/5 (27 reviews)

VISCO overview

VISCO is a web-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system designed for small and midsize importers and wholesale distributors across a range of industries including chemicals, plastics, food & beverage, hardware, textiles, home goods, and more. The software offers tools for import compliance management, automatic document generation, order and inventory tracking, landed cost calculation, unit of measure conversions, financial reporting, and more.

VISCO provides users with the tools to manage supplier quotes, customer inquiries, and quotes to customers. Inventory availability, customer order statuses, and order histories can all be accessed in real time. Users are automatically alerted by email for any delayed order shipments. Alerts are also generated and delivered either on the homepage or via email for invoices with low margins, assigned tasks, order changes, and re-order alerts for low stock levels. Inventory from open sales and purchase orders, and inventory in transit, can be tracked in addition to inventory on hand. Units of measure are converted automatically by the system, allowing users to define which units they buy and sell in without requiring manual conversions.

VISCO can automatically prepare documents through integration with Microsoft Office, removing the need for employees to replicate data entry by pulling data directly from the built-in database. Freight Bills of Lading (B/L), customs broker instruction sheets, delivery orders, and inventory releases/pick tickets can all be generated in the system. VISCO also provides tools for managing import compliance, with the creation of importer security filing forms to assist with ISF filing and the fulfilment of 10+2 US customs requirements.

I loved working with Visco! The entire process was great, from the initial proposal to the implementation. While they had great standard features, they were pretty accommodating with specific customizations as well. For projects we requested that may have been costly they were forthcoming with alternative solutions that gave us the result we needed for a better price. We have had it for over a year and I am still happy with how things are working and how hard the Visco team works to continuously improve the product. Their support team is made up of quality people and you have to respect a company where the executive team is always willing to help out, even with just support. The team is accessible and responsive!I like the uniqueness of the product that allows us to manage our imports. We evaluated numerous products and Visco was the only software that allowed us to track our imports on a per container basis. A lot of the logic behind the program makes sense for someone who is process driven. The reporting features are by far my favorite because of the granularity that it provides. The profit based reports are useful in driving business decisions and the other reports are useful in helping us forecast and manage our inventory. In the food industry, lot tracking is crucial and Visco has the capability to show where every lot of every shipment goes.

Adaptable and Modular with a Steep Learning Curve

VISCO is a very adaptable, modular piece of software. There is a certain structure to all ERP software, certain limitations based upon physical constraints of product. However, anything outside of that rigid structure is fair game when it comes to this company, you're free to request modifications of almost any part of the software to suit your internal SOP and ask for support.

I love that the software seems to track just about everything. If you've got the data- there's a field for it... or one can be created. There's multiple ways to get the same area. There's many reports that help you to track down exactly which information you're needing. Once you get used to software, it really is a great tool.

I began using the CareWorks database in 1999 before it was a windows program. I find it to be very user friendly. I use many of the reports in my daily operations: Master Volunteer and Receiver Reports provide phone numbers which I use constantly. The Service Assignments allow me to know what volunteers take care of whom, and who I need timesheets from. I can print out individual congregational reports so I can report to a church how much and of what their volunteers are doing. The Program Profile Report is the greatest - it gives me stats for any period of time I need when we are applying for grants or giving reports to the Board. It tells me about the people served: #, sex, age dist, mobility, living arrangement, ethnic dist. It tells how many volunteers there were and how many hours they worked doing each service, and totally. I also print the Services Summary report monthly, after I have recorded timesheets. This program tracks donations from every source for whatever time period I need. This database is tailor made for Faith in Action Programs. I cannot think of a reporting need I have had that I was not able to retrieve from this database. The tech support is EXCELLENT - very responsive and patient. I couldn't work without this database. I am very pleased with it. The only con is that one is not able to easily send the reports electronically. Tech support has worked out a way to do this, but it is cumbersome.

I've been using Visco daily for almost 2 years and would consider it a very reliable software. It's very easy to maneuver and in comparison to other programs I've used in the past this is the best. If myself or any of my colleagues ever need assistance the customer service team is wonderful! BreeAnn, Susan & Shirley just to name a few have been especially helpful with anything we need. Just yesterday I needed some assistance so I simply emailed BreeAnn. After immediately responding to my email she followed up with a call and stayed on the phone until all of my needs were met. I was very pleased to come into work this morning to another email from Bree just following up to make sure everything was in order. :-)Great customer service!
