Painless inventory management
Lumberyards deal with a vast range of products and units of measure (UOM) that involve time-consuming physical counts or, worse, disconnected spreadsheets when dealing with inventory. But there’s a better way. Our intuitive business management software allows lumberyards to accurately receive, track, and manage inventory levels, automate reordering processes, and maintain optimal stock levels. It can leverage EDI or seamlessly imports files—saving time and reducing manual errors. With real-time data, you take the guesswork out of purchasing decisions, reduce carrying costs, and prevent stockouts.
Streamline special orders and custom manufacturing
With our lumberyard software, you will have robust work order management that can seamlessly create, track and manage all your custom orders. You can create quotes for customers that are easily converted to orders including partial release on orders. You can even order a subset of items from a quote and keep the original one open. This capability eliminates rekeying orders, prevents errors, improves tracking, and increases efficiency in your business. Offering value-added services like custom milling or manufacturing to special orders is not uncommon for lumberyards. From converting raw lumber into specialized products to tracking the progress of custom manufacturing, the software streamlines the entire process.
Optimize delivery management and dispatch
Efficient delivery management is crucial for lumberyards, given the nature of their products. Our business management software enables lumberyards to organize and manage deliveries effectively through a user-friendly interface. With features like drag-and-drop load scheduling, proof of delivery documentation, and real-time delivery status updates, you can streamline your delivery processes, reduce errors caused by manual paper-based processes, and ensure timely deliveries to customers.
