Top 10 Enhancements You’ll See With Arett’s New Computer System

Arett is excited to launch our brand new computer system over the July 4th Holiday. This new system will impact the way you do business with Arett Sales by streamlining and improving current ordering and inventory systems, as well as adding helpful and efficient new functionality. Our new modern website will make your connection to Arett Sales’ products and services easier to use and more responsive to your needs!

Arett Sales will be closed on July 4, but customers can still place orders July 2 and July 3 through their Arett Salesperson or by calling our Customer Service Staff at 800-257-8220, from  8 AM – 5 PM. After the transition to the new computer system is complete, our existing ordering portal, Arett Direct, will be seamlessly transitioned to our new, streamlined ordering system, which will also be accessible on Arett.com.

In the coming weeks, we will be sharing more details on how these changes effect you. In the meantime, here are some of the top 10 enhancements:

  1. Enhanced Search: The search bar in the new Arett.com Portal is made up of a series of algorithms that analyze what it is you are looking for and presents items that are most relevant to your search. The Arett.com search takes into consideration the UPC, item number, marketing copy, synonyms, manufacturer name, keywords and more. Once presented with a product listing either, you can choose to narrow your search by selecting product attributes.
  1. Real Time Inventory & Inventory Allocation: Inventory levels are now shown in “real time” and order quantities are allocated to your account as soon as you submit your order.
    1. Quick Access to Item History: If you have previously purchased an item, a “H” icon will appear next to the item, indicating that it is part of your account history. If you click the H icon, you will be presented with a 2 year purchase history by month. Customers also have the ability to quickly search their history by Manufacturer, item, or category/sub category. Export that report to excel/PDF or send the report via e-mail.
