DMS Saves Money…
Until now, the cost of designing and maintaining a comprehensive computer system has been prohibitive. You may have settled for less efficient methods of administration like separate systems for each part of your organization. DMS gives you the ability to get precisely the system that you need, affordably.
The SCI Distribution Management System was designed using a very popular database management environment renowned for its cost effectiveness and user-friendliness.
DMS can be used on hundreds of different computer systems from PC’s for just one or two users to very large mainframes for hundreds of users (e.g. IBM, DEC, Hewlett Packard, Data General, virtually all UNIX systems, and dozens more!). You can use the computer that best fits your needs today, and if your organization outgrows the computer you selected, you won’t lose your DMS software investment.
DMS was designed with the non-technical user in mind. This makes upkeep on the system easy and inexpensive. Most requests can be filled by your existing employees so there is no need to have a staff of computer people to maintain your system. In fact, most organizations using DMS don’t have any computer staff at all!
The SCI Distribution Management System was originally installed in 1984. Since then it has been put to use in locations around the country. Today, at any given time, hundreds of users are accessing the system. DMS has passed the most rigorous test possible…daily usage!

You can use daily cycle counts or physical inventory.
DMS comes complete with a very powerful sales report generator. You can pick an output format and specify the select data to be reported.
