Building Supplies Retailers have a new choice

Building Supplies Retailers have a new choice for their POS and eCommerce software
First Software Ltd, the developer of n2 ERP the leading Cloud ERP and eCommerce solution for Retailers and Distributors announces the release of new functionality for Building Supplies Retailers.

With the release of this new functionality Building Supply Retailers in Australia and New Zealand will benefit from using a single solution to power their Online eCommerce, Point of Sale, Inventory and Accounting requirements.

The new features include the ability to stock and sell consignment stock from suppliers while automatically reporting on consumption and generating Purchase Orders to replenish stock.

Another new feature is units of measure conversion where lengths of timber can be converted from the original buying unit to the individual selling unit.

And in conjunction with Vesta Central all supplier product information and pricing can now be automatically loaded into n2 ERP via EDI removing the bottleneck of having to manually load images, descriptions and other data attributes and then check pricing.

As n2 ERP features an in-built Content Management System all building supplies stock can then be seamlessly listed and sold through multiple channels – websites, in store, on Trade Me and EBay.

N2 ERP can also support both B2B and B2C pricing models so sales to trade customers can be set at different terms to sales to retail.

First Software General Manager, Alex Petraska, said he was confident that these features will be a game changer for independent Building Supplies Retailers as they will gain access to the sort of technology that up to now only the big players could afford.

The first Australian based customer on this new platform is already live and processing orders.
