ECi Advantage is used by lumber, hardware and building materials dealers to provide strong customer service and optimize operations. The software consists of tools for managing accounts receivable and payable, collections, inventory management, payroll, point of sale, purchasing and more. Offering real-time visibility into transactions and a user-friendly and fully graphical interface, ECi Advantage supports both single store and multi-location lumber and hardware dealers. The software also comes standard with multi-currency and language capabilities, making it an ideal solution for global organizations.
Managers that need a holistic, bird's eye view of what's happening with their operations will appreciate ECi's integrated business intelligence platform. This robust tool mines your data to provide actionable insights on an intuitive business dashboard. The advanced analytics and reporting tools allow users to create charts, make notes, and design custom reports that are exportable to CSV, PDF and HTML.
Some of our favorite features include automatic reminders within the POS to aid employees in cross-selling and up-selling related ticket items, as well as the ability to track special items (like damaged or discounted products). It's also quite simple to modify A/R invoices, automatically allocate expenses and establish security measures and configuration by job title/role.
In addition to offering a great product, ECi guarantees timely, 24/7 customer support at no additional cost. The product itself comes equipped with in-system support and searchable help desk. Multiple training options are also available, including on-site training, webinars and videos.
