500_mans-logo.jpgEpicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today Mans Lumber and Millwork has selected the award-winning Epicor BisTrack™ solution as its new business management software to boost customer service, improve reporting, and increase revenue through enhanced pricing.

  • "The biggest question for us when looking to change software solutions was, ‘Will this investment be better for our customers?’. After educating ourselves on what BisTrack software could provide, the answer to that question quickly became, ‘Yes’. One of the main drivers for us to change from ECS Pro to BisTrack software was to implement technology that is continuously being developed. We selected BisTrack software because of its strong development and support teams, superior reporting, warehouse management (WMS) capabilities, and real-time technology that will give us access to more timely data for accurate decision making. Each of these features will help us deliver better service to our customers."
  • - Pete Mans, Vice President of Operations, Mans Lumber

“BisTrack software will help us be more organized, more professional, and allow us to focus our resources on the right things. Whether it is with concentrating on customers, inventory, or operational inefficiencies that spread us thin,” said Anna Motschall, CFO, Mans Lumber. “And, in terms of operational improvements, I’m optimistic that BisTrack software will help us refine pricing. Currently, we use a lot of special price lists which are very reactive to market changes. By having up-to-the minute data, we’ll be able to keep our prices at par with the market and increase our revenue.”

“We are pleased to have Mans Lumber join the extraordinary lumber and building materials (LBM) client base that is continuously demonstrating growth through their use of the BisTrack solution,” said Kevin Hodge, senior LBM product director, Epicor Software. “It’s proven that investment in new, robust technology leads the way for increased profitability, enhanced customer satisfaction, and business growth.”
