"Eclipse is truly built for a multi-location business in need of centralized purchasing and heavy transfers, which are critical requirements for our seven locations."

Hoffman Supply Company has 10 locations throughout Missouri, Kansas, and Arkansas. According to John Bunselmeyer, vice president of Hoffman Supply Company, "We feel that we are positioned nicely for growth, and that the next 2-4 years will present an opportunity to gain significantly, so we needed an ERP system that would support that.
