Streamline STIHL Purchase OrderingCedar Rapids, IA, April 26, 2021 – Ideal Computer Systems and c-Systems Software Inc., two leading industry-specific dealership software vendors in North America, are pleased to announce STIHL Purchase Order Integration, which allows dealers to submit their STIHL purchase orders directly to Crader Distributing and Blue Mountain Equipment through their dealership management system.

All it takes is for a dealer to log into their Ideal or c-Systems Infinity system, and everything they need to make a purchase order submission would already be there, eliminating several time-consuming steps.

With this functionality, dealers can also ensure they order the exact quantities of the parts they need by utilizing automated reorder suggestions, which are based on actual stocking levels and transactions. Furthermore, dealers can add parts and customize purchase orders to their liking before submitting them.

“Dealers are able to save hours of work thanks to this new addition to our dealer management systems,” said Dave Johnson, OEM Solutions Manager for Ideal and c-Systems. “Dealers can now submit their purchase orders much faster, which has made a significant impact on the efficiency of their parts department.”

“STIHL is one of our top partners, and we couldn’t be happier with this integration,” said Ajay Thakur, General Manager of Ideal and c-Systems. “It’s our continued mission to build bridges between us and other impactful businesses in the industry because, at the end of the day, that’s what makes the lives of our customers easier.”

Ideal and c-Systems have been expanding their network of integration partners for many decades and across many industries, including outdoor power, powersports, agriculture, and marine. To explore them all, be sure to head over here:
