SpruceWare.NET is the first Windows® powered information management tool specifically designed for the Lumber, Hardware & Building Materials industry and developed using the Microsoft® .NET framework. More powerful and intuitive than any other business management systems currently available, SpruceWare.NET is the ideal choice for your LBM and Hardlines business. Familiarity with the Windows interface combined with simple navigation make training fast and easy. Now, dealers can navigate and access information, manage workflows, and analyze their operations quicker and easier than ever before. SpruceWare.NET delivers unprecedented levels of service and value.
The .NET software development platform is the newest Microsoft software development technology. Microsoft uses this same technology to develop their own products, including their latest operating systems. With both the Microsoft .NET framework and the SQL Server™ database platform SpruceWare.NET takes advantage of the latest technology available today. In addition, the open architecture of the Microsoft .NET platform ensures easy integration with 3rd party systems and applications at the best value for Spruce customers.
SpruceWare.NET includes a wide array of built-in features that most other software providers charge extra for or require additional investment for licensing 3rd party software. SPRUCE Computer Systems, Inc. is always actively developing and adding new features to our products.
The SpruceWare.NET software is a document-based solution. Almost all activities create documents and these documents are linked together automatically. When viewing a document, you can immediately access any other documents linked to that activity (for example, viewing a customer’s order can immediatly provide links to the sale (invoice), purchase order, receipt, payables bill, and so on). It’s also possible to attach scanned images of external documents to SpruceWare.NET documents for easy access to even more information.
The main reason we switched to Spruce from CSD/Activant was the cost of support. We're now paying less than half of what Activant was charging us and we're getting everything we were getting and more from Spruce! Spruce doesn't charge any additional fees for software upgrades the way Activant does.
