Acsellerate’s Profitability Manager™ Software Is Now Available for Red Cheetah

New product automates process of analyzing usage and recommending more profitable substitutes

Fort Worth, TX—Monday, May 19, 2014  ECi Software Solutions (www.ECiSolutions.com), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced that its Profitability Manager™ software is now available for Red Cheetah dealers.  ECi Acsellerate initially released the Profitability Manager for DDMS and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers.  Acsellerate always planned to make Profitability Manager available for other ERP systems, and has been working closely with Red Cheetah on an integration that would allow for real-time communication of current costs and customer price plans.

Profitability Manager is already helping independent dealers improve margin by automating the process of recommending more profitable substitute products.  Initial analysis of 25 Acsellerate dealers showed margin improvement potential of 3–5 percentage points—in many cases this can equate to several hundred thousand dollars in additional margin. By streamlining a previously manual and time-consuming process, the Profitability Manager will help Red Cheetah dealers consult with more customers and recommend products that immediately impact their bottom lines. 

Initial feedback from the Red Cheetah dealers that have been testing the Profitability Manager has been very positive.  “Although I just started exploring the new Profitability Manager software, the potential to create customer cost savings while at the same time increased margin for our company is a game changer,” said Joshua Kunkle, Vice President of AMO Office Supply. 

“Acsellerate is pleased to make Profitability Manager available for Red Cheetah dealers,” said Steve Sabatini, President of ECi Acsellerate.  “We recognize the importance of offering this product across ERP systems and have been working tirelessly to make that happen.  Most dealers have margin challenges, which is why we remain focused on providing innovative products that improve profitability.”

 “ECi recognizes the importance of providing solutions that improve profitability and strengthen the independent dealer community,” said Andrew Morgan, President of the Office Products Division of ECi.   “Our company is proud of the success of Profitability Manager and look forward to making it available to all of our Office Products customers.”
