UT400 Builders Merchant Software Overview

System Features

UT400 is a straightforward, cloud-based software system specifically designed to help UK builders’ merchants to buy better, stock smarter and sell faster.  It is loaded with features to make your day job easier, giving you the information you need to make business-critical decisions, faster. And because it’s cloud-based, you can access it any time, from anywhere, on any device.

Features include:

Stock Control Each Product

From unit items, timber lengths, tonnes of aggregates, every item you trade can be held to its own stock method. That means more accurate stockholding, less wastage, and more profit, plus happier customers and smoother administration.

Multi-Branch Trading

Know what is stocked at every branch, in any format, instantly. Place orders for customers to be despatched from straight from your other branches, or restock regionally before you run out.

Alert Alert!

UT400 tracks your system and can warn of things you may be concerned about – whether that’s customers near their credit limit, products running low on stock or customers’ drop in spending, you can stay one step ahead. Total flexibility to choose which alerts you set, including upper or lower limits, and time-sensitive reminders.

Scan or Tablet signed Delivery Notes

Delivery Notes can be scanned into the system, or drivers can get customers to sign directly on an Android tablet. Signed proof of delivery can then either be emailed when requested or automatically attached to every invoice, meaning smoother integration with the system for up-to-the-minute accuracy, reporting and customer service.

Milling, Processing & Treatments

Add to customer orders or mill for stock orders. Mill and Return lines improve the description of processing required, adding the right information to the cost and selling price of a job to ensure you are making a sensible margin every time. You can also send material to Outworkers for additional processing – whatever your way of working, UT400 allows you the ultimate control with the ultimate flexibility.

Product Barcoding

Hold multiple barcodes against each product. Generate in-house barcodes alongside manufacturer ones for faster order entry, stocktaking, replenishment and product checks, making sure your business runs exactly how you need it to.

Kit Products

Hold groups of products as a Kit (e.g. bathroom suite) or as a quick way to add in multiple items often sold together.

Advanced Product Pricing

Ultimate flexibility for tailored pricing, including customer, quantity, delivery method, aggregate, agreements and schedules.

This is just a selection of the advantages UT400 can offer your business. Plus, all our builders’ merchant software systems come with the peace of mind of an experienced team of real people at the end of the phone.  Book a call to discuss your requirements and see how UT400 can transform your business.
