Blue Link’s product matrix is useful for any company that has the need to manage a matrix of product variables. This applies to the distribution of industrial products where some inventory items will vary in one or two elements (such as finish, diameter, thickness, size, color, pressure, length, etc). Our product matrix allows you to create and manage all the SKUs in a group and show them in a matrix for easy order entry.
