ProfitPoint vs. NCR

NCR is an ERP system that covers point of sale functionality, self-checkout capabilities, analytics, loyalty and consumer engagement, and support services. TurningPoint Systems specializes in distribution-specific ERP solutions, plus the experience and expertise that comes with 30 years of service to the industry. And it’s scaled for growth—so once you sign up for ProfitPoint, you’ll never need to change your software.

ProfitPoint offers a variety of options, and its distribution-specific focus and user-friendly interfaces make it attractive to many businesses working in the distribution industry.

ProfitPoint offers all kinds of functionality and tools for distributors. It tracks items through the purchasing, shipping, and delivery process. It offers an e-commerce platform, so users can shop around the clock. And it offers analytics, so you can see at a glance how your company is doing.

Why You Should Choose ProfitPoint

For companies looking for accounting and enterprise/self-checkout software, NCR might seem like a strong choice. But small- and medium-sized companies looking to grow who need software that supports warehouse inventory operations as well as robust accounting and analytics functionality, a fully realized distribution-focused ERP like ProfitPoint is the clear winner.

With e-commerce functionality, purchasing insights/algorithms, regulatory and compliance features, and much, much more, ProfitPoint is a smart, affordable choice for businesses looking to manage their inventory, accounting, and analytics—and put themselves in a position with software that can grow with them.
