Congratulations, winners!
This year we congratulated two winners in the 2017 Epicor Customer Excellence Awards. Yoder Lumber was named the Technology Innovator category winner for its use of LumberTrack software. Star Lumber & Supply Co. was the Rapid Time to Value category winner for its implementation of BisTrack software.

Industry-leading speakers
The conference was also full of exciting speakers, from industry experts to software users. A special thanks to the Epicor BisTrack software customer presenters:

Congrats to Yoder Lumber and Star Lumber and Supply Co"This was my 10th conference as a BisTrack user—I have been attending since 2007.  The 2017 conference was great and, as always, I found it to be extremely valuable. Three of our IT people attended and they all got something out of it.  I know this must be a huge undertaking on your part. The efforts are appreciated and definitely worth the energy you put into them. Thanks for another great week and user conference," commented Jim Holloway, CFO, Contract Lumber.

It was a memorable conference with record-setting numbers. We are grateful for all of our attendees, partners, presenters, sponsors, and conference teams who made this a successful event. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s LBM User Conference!
