Copp’s Buildall Selects Epicor BisTrack to Support Growth Plans
Canadian building material business implements new software in four retail locations
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Copp’s Buildall has selected Epicor BisTrack™ software for lumber and building materials (LBM) dealers and distributors to support seamless operations across the organization.
Copp’s Buildall, family owned and operated through four generations, has had a prominent role in London, Ontario's building industry since 1877. The business strives to be the leading building material supplier by providing the best service, quality products, and exceptional value.
Epicor BisTrack software is the tool that Copp’s has chosen for integrated dispatch and delivery management, electronic document management, inventory control tools such as suggested orders, real-time business intelligence, and more to aid in making accurate business decisions.
“To continue being a leader in the industry required us to look at ways to improve efficiency and better serve our customers. Copp’s Buildall is a future-oriented business and we don’t want to be held back by our software in the years to come. Our previous software did not integrate with some of the modules we use—particularly delivery, business reporting, and document storage. We created workarounds and built our own tools to provide the systems we needed. With BisTrack software all of the modules we need are integrated, which will undoubtedly provide a more robust platform to further improve the customer experience and in turn lead to increased sales.”
“BisTrack software will help us better serve customers by increasing our efficiency to eliminate manual tasks, gain better business insight, and improve the customer experience,” continued Loughlin. “Our primary objective for transitioning to BisTrack software is to take our customer service to an even higher level. By having fully integrated systems built into one platform, we will improve our ability to communicate with and serve our customers”
Accurate dispatch and delivery functionality
Approximately 50 percent of the Copp’s Buildall business is delivered—requiring accurate and real-time data to effectively serve customers and keep the business on track. “With BisTrack software, we’ll know exactly where our trucks are and how long they spend at each drop. We can even give our customers access to the status of their shipped orders. They can monitor their shipments online or request an alert once a shipment has been delivered to their workers at the jobsite,” said Loughlin.
“Overall, our investment in BisTrack software will give us an advantage over our competitors, help us provide better service to our customers, and remain on the growth trajectory,” concluded Loughlin.
“We are excited to support Copp’s Buildall with its growth plans,” said Kevin Hodge, director, product development and management, LBM, Epicor Software. “Copp’s investment in BisTrack will ensure they have a solid foundation for growth.”
