Requarth Co. CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY Spruce Software Helps Requarth Co. Run Lean, Fast and Profitably OVERVIEW Requarth Co. Dayton, Ohio www.requarth.com BUSINESS CHALLENGES: • Needed software that was user friendly • Ability to adapt as company grows BENEFITS OF SWITCHING: • Fast POS and order entry • Easy to use • Ability to evolve with business If you've used Spruce from ECi Software Solutions to run your business for any length of time, chances are you already know about its powerful information management capabilites, its ease of use and the many features that make clear that it's a program designed for lumber and building materials businesses by people who know the industry inside out. But what you might not know quite so well is that when you become a Spruce user, you're not just buying software; you're also gaining a business partner who's just as interested as you are in seeing you make the most of all the program offers. Just ask Alan Pippenger, president of the Requarth Co. in Dayton, Ohio. More on Alan's recent Spruce experiences in a moment, but first a little background. Alan has the lumber and building materials business hardwired into his DNA. The Requarth Co. is one of the oldest lumberyards in the country, with a history that goes all the way back to Civil War days. Alan himself is part of the fifth generation of his family in the business and he's been involved in the industry one way or another for more than 30 years. With that kind of background and experience, he knows exactly what he wants from his business software. "It has to be easy to learn, easy to place an order and come with the ability to evolve and add features and functionality as our business needs and customer expectations change over time," he says. Spruce keeps company strong and growing in face of competition All that is why Alan and his team are long-time Spruce users and, he says, Spruce has played a key role in keeping the business strong and growing despite some tough economic challenges and fierce competition from national lumberyard chains, big box hardware operations, other specialty retailers and more. ©2019 ECi, and the ECi Red Box logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of ECi Software Solutions, Inc.
