Woodbury Supply CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY Thanks to SpruceWare Software, Dealer Replaces Gut Feel and Guesswork with Hard Data OVERVIEW Pilot Lumber Do It Center Woodbury, Connecticut www.woodburysupply.com BUSINESS CHALLENGES: • Using generic accounting software to manage business • Duplicate data entry, tasks taking hours to complete • No insight into business, decisions based on gut feel • Staff not software savvy BENEFITS OF SWITCHING: • Training always available • Easy to use, staff up and running quickly • "Electronic filing cabinet"— all info available immediately • Business decisions based on hard data There are plenty of good reasons, if you're a lumber and building materials dealer, to use Spruce business management system from ECi Software Solutions to run your business. The program was designed for dealers by dealers and the fact that there are today over 15,000 users of Spruce software in the industry worldwide speaks for itself. But over and above the basic features and benefits of the program, there's also the added advantage that when you put the power of Spruce to work for your business, you also gain a valuable partner who's just as committed as you are to making sure you make the most of what the software offers. Just ask John Niland at Woodbury Supply Co. in Woodbury, Connecticut. Woodbury Supply made the move to Spruce in January 2016. Potentially, at least, it could have been a tortuous, high-stress process, with the potential ultimately to end up causing more problems than it solved. The company made the change after many years of using off-the- shelf accounting software to run the business. It was a generic program that required extensive double-data-entry and offered no features or functionality specifically designed to meet the special needs of a building materials operation. But the Woodbury Supply team were used to the old program and many of them, particularly long-time associates, viewed the change with something less than totally unrestrained enthusiasm. Fortunately, the training and technical support team at Spruce have handled more than their fair share of system conversions and they put a plan in place to ensure things went smoothly, both from a technical perspective and for the people involved. ©2019 ECi, and the ECi Red Box logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of ECi Software Solutions, Inc.
