Unique Data Solutions, a premiere provider of innovative lumber software solutions for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the lumber and wood products industry, announces the immediate release of LumberCell, the coolest, must-have solution for the vibrant, self-motivated, high achieving salesperson and mobile worker. LumberCell is the first advanced mobile software in the lumber and wood products industry to provide mobile workers with a nearly complete transaction processing system right from their fingertips, allowing salespersons to stay connected regardless of location.
LumberCell keeps salespeople on top of their game, providing real-time access to company information and giving them the edge to process orders faster while achieving greater productivity. LumberCell is designed to be used by the goals oriented salesperson, or by performance driven sales team that add value to the bottom line. LumberCell is compatible with most hand held devices such as BlackBerry, Palm Treo, Dell Axim series, HP iPAQ, palm pilot, and smart phones. LumberCell is a software add-on to Lumbergear, an all-in one business management software system. Lumbergear features a powerful, integrated system that allows for easy lumber inventory tracking and costing information, lumber truckload and retail sales, customer order fulfillment and invoicing, purchasing, production, logistics, graphs, analysis, integrated reporting functions and much more. The powerful integration feature between LumberCell and Lumbergear make the duo a powerful solution for serious lumber companies.
Real-time integration allows salespersons with LumberCell to always be connected to Lumbergear, and co-workers in the main office. The just-in-time model allows sales teams to collaborate with production and manufacturing teams and stay on top of new customer orders, ensuring that orders are fulfilled faster. Mobile workers can be on the road or out of state and still be in touch with the main office, resulting in greater productivity, reduced order processing time, cost savings, better employee morale and quality customer service. Submitted information in LumberCell is real-time and instantly visible to all employees. Orders can be processed right away, and salespersons no longer have to call in orders via telephone, or wait until they get back in the office to enter orders taken on the road.
In addition, LumberCell users have access to real-time inventory and cost information, contact information and part number pricing lists. The powerful search capabilities are also a big plus, as salespersons can search for existing and open customer orders. LumberCell also provides users with real-time contact information, while having the convenience of issuing real-time purchase orders, scheduling freight, and viewing real-time production and manufacturing information.
LumberCell is intuitive, using advanced functionality to make the order entering process a snap. It also eliminates double entry of information and possible clerical mistakes as a result. LumberCell ensures that customer orders are secured, fulfilled, and delivered on time, making it possible for salespeople to quickly close deals and surpass quotas.
LumberCell made its debut at the 2006 Nawla Traders Market in Dallas Texas. Early reports indicated great consumer interest among salespeople and managers alike. Ease of use and innovation topped the list of positive features that created a buzz among conference attendees. “Wow! Real-time? That would help eliminate the double sale of inventory,” said an attendee. Another attendee commented that LumberCell would eliminate the need to call orders in, and decrease the time it took to process orders.
LumberCell’s compatibility with most handheld devices with WiFi access was welcomed, as it eliminated the need for additional equipment expense. With a simple monthly subscription and an annual service agreement, LumberCell is priced at $60/month per user. LumberCell is an add-on product to Lumbergear.
