vs. Blue Link

Why You Should Make the Switch

When You Need a
Complete System

It can be hard finding the perfect fit when it comes to software—finding something that your team will actually use, finding something that is geared toward your specific needs and your specific industry. Finding the right fit means time and money saved; the wrong fit means time and money lost. That’s why people in the distribution industry choose TurningPoint Systems over Blue Link.

It’s important to understand what Blue Link and TurningPoint each do to understand how they serve your business. Along with a desire to increase efficiency, eliminate waste, and create time-saving workflow automations, there’s a desire to have something that allows for hoped-for growth that comes with a successful business enterprise.

Both QwikPoint from TurningPoint Systems and Blue Link include features that can help with inventory monitoring. But QwikPoint was built specifically with distribution in mind, which means that the depth of its feature catalog is deeper and stronger than Blue Link could ever be.
