If you’ve started to think your lumber and building materials (LBM) supply business could be getting more from your software, then it might be time for a change. It is no longer sufficient to own a solution that is “good enough.” The most successful companies know that growth comes from integrated online trading, business intelligence, and using technology to be more efficient.

It can be daunting to make the switch to a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, and with so many options, it’s hard to know when if you’re choosing the right one. Epicor has provided LBM businesses with the tools needed to make the most informed software choice. The lumber and building materials solutions evaluation kit consists of three white papers that tell you:

  • How to know when you’ve outgrown your current software solution
  • How to choose between generic and industry-specific ERP systems
  • How to outperform in an era of LBM sales growth
