Save time, improve accuracy, and reduce errors with EDI

EDI eliminates manual processes with vendors

Manually placing orders with vendors?

EDI securely and reliably communicates with wholesalers and co-ops, reducing costs and human error. EDI eliminates printed POs, hand entry of receipts, and manual SKU and price updates. It also helps process orders, receiving, and payments faster while improving accuracy of inventory management data.

Are special orders a pain?

EDI includes full vendor catalogs making it easy to find and order special items. Enhance your customer experience and improve order accuracy by including item pictures within your ECI system.

Spruce allows me to stay up to date on market costing for any of my product categories. It gives me the flexibility through one screen on the inventory menu to make those changes throughout our entire system so I know my pricing and costing is all in line.


Before we switched, it would probably take me 8–10 hours every week to input my order from Orgill when it came in so that I would have the most current inventory in the system. Now I can do that literally in less than five minutes.


We’re making decisions based on information rather than guesswork, there are fewer human errors to deal with and everything is running faster and more efficiently.


I knew from the day we started looking for software that we wanted a cloud-based system. I really liked the idea that they would be taking care of our data and we would not have to manage a server and deal with software updates and daily back-ups.


You build your quote and you can flow that information seamlessly into your vendor orders, receiving documents, delivery tickets and sales invoices without having to retype a thing. That aspect of the program alone has reduced the time we used to spend processing paperwork by at least 65 percent!


The flexibility of the program was also a big plus. It can be set up to fit our needs as a single-store operation or geared towards multiple store locations so that we can easily expand the system and get more advanced as we grow.


As a long-time Do it Best store, we wanted software that had a proven track record of working smoothly with them,” she recalls. “RockSolid MAX certainly met that requirement and we were also impressed with all the capabilities and efficiencies it had to offer.


Adding new items from Do it Best is really quick and easy—literally all it takes is just a keystroke or two—and item look up is also far more efficient and user friendly.”


The software does everything they say it does and the ECI technical support and customer service people are great!


Before the switch, we would do cycle counts on paper and then manually change quantities for each item in our database. Now, if we’re doing a full inventory, all we have to do is go out on the floor, scan the items and enter quantities into the system. And we don’t need to close the store to do it.
