Hawaii Nut and Bolt
Hawaii Nut and Bolt, Inc. has benefited from an unrivaled level of organization in business management and inventory control since implementing Acctivate.
Hawaii Nut and Bolt distributes building materials such as fasteners, nails & staples, drills & taps, saw blades, other hardware, tools and more throughout the Pacific Rim.
“What makes our company unique is our diverse inventory. We’re on an island surrounded by 2,500 miles of ocean on all sides so because of that, we tend to carry a lot of uncommon stuff – odd sizes and materials that are not used very often,” said owner and CEO Bill Hayes.

Hawaii Nut & Bolt has up to ten users handling transactions at any given time. They needed a solution that could handle their counter sales, among other sales channels – all with real-time information.
“Counter sales are part of our business. We needed to be able to enter in customer orders whether they came in over the counter or over the phone. We needed to be able to enter it in as a customer was telling us what they wanted.”
And with many parts in inventory, Hayes was also looking for a solution that would offer the pricing flexibility and functions that the business needed.
Unconstrained business operations with Acctivate
Hawaii Nut and Bolt has cultivated Acctivate to measure their expansive inventory. The company distributes millions of small nuts and bolts that consist of diverse sizes, threads, and types.
