- List and formula pricing to standardize pricing within quotes and sales orders
- Ability to generate a purchase order for a sales order and vice versa

Customer Relationship Management

Insight’s Customer Service feature provides a centralized location with the information needed to ensure customer satisfaction. From here, you can easily access customer contact information, create a new quote or sales order, track the status of an order, and look up sales history and receivables.

Sales Management

Sales staff can effectively manage each order from the sales quote to final delivery and billing. View the full sales history of each customer and conveniently track prices, discounts, and costs of each order for a detailed profit margin analysis. The system also allows you to define sales taxes (including LPA) and create multiple location and multi-shipment orders with ease. In addition, integration with our Traffic Control module, labeling solution, and barcode technology all help streamline the fulfillment process.

Retail Point
of Sale

The Point of Sale (POS) Module enables lumber and building materials distributors and dealers to handle transactions using barcode scanners and merchant debit and credit card terminals. The system accepts payments made by cash, on account, or by credit cards.

Remote
Access

The system can be accessed using laptops, tablets, and smart phones (Windows, Android, and IOS) through a remote desktop connection. Sales, warehouse, and yard staff can utilize role-specific functions securely through their wireless devices. Some of these functions include quote generation, sales order entry, inventory inquiry, purchasing and receiving, and stock taking

Bidding &
Job Control

The Bidding and Job Control Module is also available to assist with sales to contractors and builders who are involved in large residential and commercial projects. This application is fully integrated into WoodPro's Financial and Lumber Management suite and is where all estimating, bidding, and job control activities originate. You can easily build a work plan and cost estimate for a job at any level of detail.

Management

Inventory can be tracked be using tags, lots, lumber tally, barcodes and universal product codes (UPCs).

Conveniently define and generate items for a wide range of lumber and building products including: softwood lumber, hardwood, laminates, hardware, plywood, panel products, dimensional lumber, logs, poles, treated wood, engineered wood, pallets, millwork, roofing, fencing, paint and specialty wood products. Assign varying levels of description and categories to further classify inventory items and also organize lumber items using random length or random width.
