Family-owned since its inception in 1898, W.B. Mason is now the largest independent
office and janitorial supplies distributor in the US, with annual revenue of approximately $2 billion across 65 locations. The company has more than 3,600 employees, leases 1,100 delivery trucks and services more than 300,000 businesses nationwide.
Given the global nature of the business, W.B. Mason found it was being held back by its finance and operations capabilities. The company was regularly dealing with around 750 million calculated prices daily, requiring countless stackable rebates and price models to resolve on a case-by-case basis.
It needed a united, global solution. One that would deliver real-time pricing rebate information—anywhere, anytime, anyplace.
The Flintech Solution
W.B. Mason turned to Flintech.
As a gold-certified systems integrator of Microsoft Dynamics 365, Flintech was able to roll out Dynamics AX across all its global divisions—a move that meant individual issues and customizations were a thing of the past. A full and up-to-date audit trail was also made available to meet the legal and accounting obligations in each operating territory.
W.B. Mason was able to save substantially in annual costs on its finance and operations costs and have a single, transparent view of all data and insights. The company was also able to significantly increase the speed of its customer service processes through its new automated support inboxes which, since Flintech, have been made available to the entire team.

Flintech’s experience in the distribution industry proved to be invaluable. Their implementation of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement truly enabled us to greatly improve the way we service our customers.– ANDREW D’AGOSTINO – VP for Strategic Technology, W.B, Mason
