Allen Impact Services Allen Impact Services Selects MBS Dev’s Solution for their Business Supply Distribution Expertise

* I’ve seen a significant growth in business without an increase in our overhead cost. *

Bill Ratcliffe, President of Allen Impact Services
Allen Impact Services selected the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics Wholesale Distribution Suite (which integrates with Microsoft Dynamics AX) from MBS Dev because it met the unique, industry-specific needs of the business supplies industry.

Business Needs

To compete with big-box merchandisers in the business supplies market, Allen Impact Services knew they had to expand and differentiate. Their TSH (The Systems House) solution didn’t allow them the flexibility they needed.


Allen Impact Services (AIS), headquartered in Beltsville, MD, and with revenues of more than $65 million, chose to implement software from MBS Dev specifically for their host of pitch-perfect industry solutions, including the Office Supply Vertical Extension and Customer Connect and Sales Rep Connect modules. The MBS Dev optimized distribution management solution met AIS’s very specific business supply needs. So they selected the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics Wholesale Distribution Suite (which integrates with Microsoft Dynamics AX) from MBS Dev because it met their unique, industry-specific needs.


The MBS Dev solution has helped AIS move into complementary business lines, including office equipment service, janitorial/sanitation, technology products, breakroom supplies, electronics recycling, and office furniture while focusing on going green. Electronic transmissions of invoices, order status and billing have increased 50-fold, which creates the effect of a paperless company while making a positive impact on AIS’s bottom line with timelier customer payments. Sales reps can effectively manage all aspects of their business relationships from the road with Sales Rep Connect, and customers can easily place orders and check status online with Customer Connect. As a result, online orders have risen by 93%. Their new, flexible solution helped AIS grow rapidly through acquisition while keeping costs low.
