By now, mobile technology has become an essential part of people’s lives. As both consumers and staff trend more toward a younger, digitally savvy demographic, lumber and building materials (LBM) businesses need to take advantage of mobile tools or risk losing to the competition.
Mobile technologies can bring incredible benefits to LBM enterprises for delivery and dispatch, field sales, the selling floor, and the warehouse. To better help you seize the mobile advantage, Epicor has identified eight ways your LBM business can leverage mobile technologies to foster growth, including:
- Serving your customers with the latest information—use mobile apps in the field or in the aisles to help keep inventory and delivery information up-to-date—helping your outside sales, warehouse, and sales floor staff meet customer inquiries with fast, accurate answers
- Serving your customers with timely, accurate deliveries—track and manage deliveries with greater precision, and use up-to-date inventory and delivery status to more accurately plan deliveries and manifests
- Driving revenue with increased efficiency—ensure your sales reps and floor associates can instantly retrieve the most up-to-date information on products, inventories, purchase and sales orders, and other data—allowing them to spend less time searching your system and more time on value added tasks
- Streamlining operations—provide your staff with instant access to all the information they need—wherever they are—to simplify the experience for your employees and customers
