Mainframe Associates has developed and supported the Building Supply Controller business management software for over 30 years. Under original ownership, Mainframe has long-term employees who provide above average levels of customer support and service.
The Building Supply Controller software represents not only a multi-million dollar investment in development costs, but also a comprehensive solution that meets the business automation needs of North American Lumber and Building Materials retailers.
Servicing LBM buying groups such as Federated Coop, Irly, Timbr Mart, Castle, Rona and Windsor Plywood in the USA and Canada, Mainframe understands that no two sites are alike and each requires made-to-order changes. The Building Supply Controller can be customized with over 600 configuration settings.
Mainframe’s building supply customers enjoy software capabilities like a dimension calculator within Point of Sale, unique pricing strategies and multi-store functions. To save the back office time and money, the Building Supply Controller allows users to directly email their customer statements within seconds. The software will automatically run end of day, end of month and backup routines unattended.
With the Building Supply Controller you can export accounting data to a wide variety of third party accounting software or take advantage of their fully integrated GL and AP modules. There is no need to double entry.
Mainframe helps clients to structure payment plans around their budget. They also have experience in working with smaller sites where it’s more important to save on installation and support costs.

Kaslo Buiding Supplies carries a full line of building materials from hardware, to plywood & lumber, paint, roofing, and drywall insulation. We also have a garden centre and we stock animal feed.
We have been partnered with Mainframe Associates for close to twenty years. We are currently running version 7.5, and we are switching all our terminals to PC's in September. It is my experience that there will be few issues if any, and if so, I have always had great support from the Mainframe staff.
I have a fantastic relationship with the Mainframe team. They have always been very helpful in adding any functions or reports I have requested.
I have looked at other options over the years, but in my opinion, I get good value for our software and support.
