Parts Inventory Software

    We are looking for software that can be used to track our large inventory of parts for our heavy equipment fleet.  We use Vista (Viewpoint) and they have a module that we could purchase called "inventory" but after watching a demo video of it looks like the module is designed for organizations that sell their inventory.  Does anyone use the inventory module in Vista for equipment parts inventory management or have another software package that works well?

    Thank you for your insights!

    You may want to request a demo focused on the integration of the EM & IN modules. The modules work well together if setup properly.

    We use the inventory and EM modules extensively for tracking parts and consumables and work order expense for various repair and maintenance tasks. I would be happy to share how we use it if you are interested. We do not use it for selling items to third parties.

    ​We are on Viewpoint and are also utilizing the Inventory Module for our Equipment Parts & Sales.  Make sure you include the Materials Sales Modules for invoicing (especially for outside sales).  VP's Inventory/Materials Module seems to be tailored more towards Materials (rock/sand/gravel) type of inventory, but you will need to setup unique Materials ID (such as Part#/Description) for every item.  Let me know if you have any questions or I can also get you in touch with my team.

    Thank you all for your responses!  This is the first time I have used the Connection Cafe and I appreciate you taking the time to respond.  I am going to reach back out to Viewpoint and have them give me a demo of the integration between EM and Inventory Module, since it appears to be working for some of you I think it is worth another look.
