Who Is Mainstream Fiber Networks?
Pioneers of reliable gigabit internet for Indiana communities that need it most with a 100% fiber optic connection. Founded by Bryan Gabriel, Mainstream Fiber Networks is proud to be able to provide affordable, high speed internet to rural areas across the state of Indiana and now services over 8,000 homes.
As a growing company, expanding to neighboring communities, Mainstream Fiber Networks realized that they needed to have better tracking and visibility in their in house inventory, which included purchases made of several products that were going in and out of 3 different company locations.
Initially we were tracking our inventory in one software and our procurement needs in another. We needed a single source solution to enhance our procurement strategies in which we could have an end to end holistic supply chain picture. By not being able to track purchases with a single software solution, we were consistently running into inconsistencies in our inventory counts at our various company locations, which affected our overall service ability and slowed down our overall service completion time. From one location to another our accounting team continuously kept finding discrepancies that need to be fixed which ended eating up 8-10 hours of extra reconciliation work each and every single week.
