A spruce lumber and building materials software
Spruce® software provides advanced point-of-sale and business management solutions for lumberyards, hardware stores, and building materials suppliers. This industry-specific software has helped operations improve productivity, control costs, increase profitability, and remain competitive for nearly 35 years.
Spruce is cloud-based with an intuitive interface that is easy to use. Built with comprehensive document management functionality, all transactions are automatically linked. Plus, using a document scanner, you can attach packing lists, notes, tax forms, or virtually any Windows® file.
Stay informed on operations and make appropriate business decisions with integrated business intelligence and tailored analytic views. All reports have drill-down capability to see the details behind the data and you can export them to a Microsoft® Excel® or PDF file. Plus, optional alerts can proactively notify you of events that could impact your business.
Spruce helps you manage your business and stay productive from anywhere. With the Spruce AnyWare"/mobile app, employees can capture proof-of-delivery, submit orders, receive inventory and more. Spruce ProLink"/is available in a browser or mobile app, and allows customers to access their account information, make payments, and place orders online. Both products will make your business more efficient and customer focused.
I was a RockSolid Classic customer and thought that I was purchasing the newest generation of RockSolid. It lacks much of the functionality of Classic and is actually based on SPRUCE.
I can email PO’s to my vendors directly from the software.
The UI (User Interface) makes little or no sense. The workflow doesn’t follow the basic flow of whatever process you are attempting to do. It is mouse heavy and dependent on too many folders/subfolders.
With Spruce, I can click on any invoice and see the entire paper and activity trail before and after—the purchase orders and vendor invoices for the products on that invoice, who did the quote, who received the inventory and so on—it’s all easily accessible any time I want to see it.
