Wingtastic Simplifying Drummers’ Lives One Wing Nut at a Time

In 2017, frustrated when he once again injured his thumb trying to tighten a wing nut on his drum kit, Ron Dickison, aka “Rockin’ Ronnie,” a professional drummer for 40 years, went looking for a solution. Unable to find a tool that would help him break down and set up his drums with the problematic wing nut, Dickison built a prototype of his own and Wingtastic was born.

“Every day I have to deal with the stuff in my business—factories, customers, suppliers. NetSuite is just in the background doing what I need so I don’t have to worry about it.” Ronnie Dickison, Founder, Wingtastic

Prototype to New Business in Just Months

Quickly drumming up business
Wingtastic’s simplicity and portability made it a quick hit with friends and fellow drummers, but it also works on Christmas trees, bird cages, bicycles or anything with a wing nut. Built with strong plastic nylon, it earned an Editor’s Choice Award at the National Association of Music Merchants conference and 100 pre-orders.
QuickBooks, Fishbowl out of sync
A serial entrepreneur with nine companies to his name, Dickison was determined not to make the same mistake he did with the QuickBooks and Fishbowl systems he used to run his lighting company, leading to logistics nightmares and expensive accounting services.
Speed, scalability prove the difference
A rigorous inspection of more than 30 different software evaluations led Dickison to NetSuite. Its ability to get up and running quickly to support Wingtastic but also continue to meet the company’s needs as it grew made NetSuite the top choice.
One view of inventory, financials
With NetSuite in place managing financials and inventory at Wingtastic, Dickison is adding new products for non-drumming uses and he has plans to extend the cloud ERP system to support his lighting company with 3,000 SKUs and three new ventures he’s launching, providing a unified view of all operations.
