Electrical, industrial, communications and data networking products distributor Graybar has selected DataXstream’s OMS+ platform to extend the company’s SAP ERP capabilities, DataXstream announced Jan. 3. The technology addition looks to transform Graybar’s sales experience and provide a seamless transition to SAP S/4 while maintaining business continuity.

DataXstream is an SAP solution provider focused on order management for sales and distribution. Graybar was No. 3 on MDM’s 2023 Top Electrical Distributors List.

A news release details that Graybar was looking to modernize and streamline multiple legacy systems — including quote and order entry — and to improve its data visibility, automation and scalability capabilities. After working with their systems integrator, the distributor selected DataXstream’s OMS+ to help them scale and modernize their front office and back-office order management capabilities.

“Graybar is making substantial investments in technology as part of our strategic business transformation program,” said Graybar Vice President – Technology, Mark Hirst. “As we deploy leading technology solutions, we are focused on optimizing our processes and empowering our people to achieve more. We believe that DataXstream OMS+ will help us streamline our processes and equip our employees with powerful capabilities to serve our customers and grow our business.”
