Texas Hydro Sports Testimonial

"I am the Administrator at Texas Hydro Sports. I just wanted to send you a note and tell you how fabulous Trevor is to work with.  We have a very busy service business and he had the patience of a saint! He was so easy to work with and walked me through the system at my pace and convenience. He made the process clear and allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted and revisit information as I felt I needed. I know this is part of his job but not all trainers are as easy to work with or as pleasant. I hope that you will recognize him for the outstanding employee he is. 


Not to be forgotten, David is just as wonderful to work with and since he did all the initial download work he took a lot off my shoulders.  It is nice to have a company that employees emphasize 'we are here for you' and follow that up with positive, tangible results."

Beth Estenson, Texas Hydro Sports

“I have been at c-Systems for close to a year now. I really enjoy the amount of teamwork that is present within the company, and assisting customers with their needs as efficiently as possible. c-Systems has multiple teams of incredibly specialized technicians, and a lot of customers appreciate the fact that they can send emails or call in and speak to a live person during business hours instead of pressing buttons for an automated program.

Outside of work I enjoy a lot of creative pursuits like crafting, cooking and music, and playing video games.”

“I have been in the power equipment industry for literally my entire life. My grandfather owned and operated a power equipment dealership in Flint, MI since long before I was born. My father started his own tractor dealership in Clio, MI in 1968, when I was two years old. He ran the dealership out of the barn in our backyard for several years, and then moved to a larger location in Flint, MI. I started working summer jobs in the dealership with my father when I was a kid, and then started working full time for him after I finished school. He closed the business in 1992, and I went to work for another power equipment dealer in Auburn Hills, MI. That dealership happened to have c-Systems Software as their business system, so during the five years I was there I learned to use their software.

The best thing about my job at c-Systems is being in a company that has a “family” feel, rather than a “corporate” feel. I’ve worked my whole life in family businesses, and working here is no different. Our company does a great job of listening to ideas from our customers, and using those ideas to make the software work better for them.

Away from work I enjoy all shooting sports, cooking (mostly barbequing), fishing, and playing guitar.”

I have been in the OPE industry for about 10 years. My favorite part about my job is interacting with customers, helping them solve their problems, and forming relationships as a result of that. c-Systems has A++ Customer Support, and always goes above and beyond the call of duty to help customers.

Outside of work, my hobbies and interests are my children. Anything and everything they want to do is what makes my heart flutter. They keep me on my toes and on the go every single day of the week.

I started my career in the OPE industry in the early 1980s. After graduating Michigan State with a computer science degree, I moved to Texas to find more job opportunities due to the deep recession. I got a job installing computer equipment for NAPA auto parts dealers across the state.

My favorite part about my job at c-Systems is the people I work with. We’re a great team. We have great chemistry. We read each other’s minds. Our software is the best out there because it is engineered from the ground up specifically for this industry. It takes a narrow focus to be the best in that one area.

Outside of work my interest can be found in ultramarathons. My best so far is walking 90 miles in 24 hours. My goal is to walk 100 miles in 24 hours and have my name at the U.S. Track and Field office as being a centurion.

c-Systems Announces KPM Exceptional Purchase Order Receipt™ Integration

c-Systems Announces KPM Exceptional Purchase Order Receipt

ARLINGTON, Texas (September 6, 2016) – c-Systems Software, Inc., in cooperation with KPM Exceptional LLC, is pleased to announce the latest addition to our Infinity Business Management System (BMS). KPM customers now have the ability to receive their electronic purchase orders from KPM directly into their Infinity BMS. This process eliminates the need to manually receive or otherwise process a KPM purchase order within Infinity.  

Ask any parts person in an outdoor power equipment dealership what their least favorite task is, and many will answer receiving goods.  Our new product receiving interface will pre-fill the information about what was shipped by KPM – including dealer cost, equipment serial number(s), ship, cancel and backorder quantities, and even tracking links directly to UPS, FedEx, and trucking company websites.  By prefilling this information, the parts receiving person can purely focus on discrepancies.  This saves real time for a dealership’s employees.  There is even a button to directly update the PO pricing into your system, saving your Accounting department time too!

The cooperation between KPM and c-Systems has helped optimize efficiency and boost business profits for their shared dealers.  We will continue to expand the impressive array of features with new software like the KPM Purchase Order Receipt integration. The existing list of integrations between c-Systems and KPM include electronic PO transmission, electronic stock checking, electronic product registrations, and now the ability for electronic product receipts.

The Infinity Business Management System boasts a robust combination of tools to propel your business further with features such as Purchase Order Transmissions, Product Registration, Parts Lookup, Mobile Application* and much more!  c-Systems’ Infinity Business Management System is a powerful, easy-to-use Windows®-based solution that employs innovative technology to support the industry-specific features needed to handle every aspect of your business.

Started in 1957, KPM Exceptional is an outdoor power equipment wholesaler.

What our customer's have to say about us:

"I like how Infinity fits our business and I feel that it was designed for what we do in our business, which is OPE.  I also liked that it was full of features and had in-house employee training as well.  Your system was designed with OPE in mind and wasn’t just a simple, generic solution for our company."

Phelp’s Outdoor Power Equipment, Fritz Holzer – General Manager

“If another dealer were to ask me about business management systems, I would absolutely recommend c-Systems.  I’d tell them, ‘Buy it.  It’s money well spent.’  Actually we’ve already promoted c-Systems and helped someone buy your system.”

Burleson Outdoor Power Equipment, Wayne Shamblin – Owner

"Ten years ago, my accountant unexpectedly passed away on Memorial Day weekend.  He was a main user of the system at our business and I felt lost without him.  But for two weeks straight after the incident, I received outstanding help from your support.  They helped me complete all of my daily tasks and answered any questions I had.  I felt that they were very understanding and patient, as well as knowledgeable and nice. c-Systems support is Bar-None the best support I’ve seen."

Chad Little Outdoor Power Equipment, Bruce Weeks

"Not having a separate accounting software and business system has helped a lot and made it easier to manage my business.  Having my system all in one place has helped with entry errors, managing my wholegoods, and overall has made my life a lot easier.

The Automated Warranty Claims feature saves a lot of time and keeps us from having to enter the information twice.  Learning about new lines coming out for this feature is great to hear and makes me excited!

I love the Product Registrations feature."

Bossier Power Equipment, Charlie Williamson – Owner 

"I did research before I started looking for a new business system partner, and saw that most of the best dealers in the country, were using c-Systems Infinity.  After talking to a lot of them, I knew that for me to grow my business to another level, I would need a system and partner like c-Systems."

Clay’s Power Equipment, Jerry Clay – Owner
