Timber Merchant Software Overview

UT400 System Features for Timber Merchants

UT400 is a straightforward, cloud-based ERP software system specifically designed to help UK timber 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:

Length Control of Timber

Hold each cross section of timber to a specification of lengths. See all lengths on one stock display and enter multiple lengths on one order line.

Timber Packs

See all Timber Packs in detail with shipping and certification information, with total volume and pieces broken down into length specification.

Imperial & Metric

See timber expressed in imperial and metric measure, and switch instantly between units of measure live in an order. Purchase timber in imperial, then stock and sell it by metric measure – it’s simple to use and makes processing mixed measures a breeze.

Volume to 3 decimal places

Exactly as it sounds, UT400 is accurate in volume down to three decimal places. Sounds simpler – but most systems can’t do this, so we help increase accuracy, reduce waste, and boost your profits.

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.

Hardwood, Softwood & Sheet Materials

Hold each type of product to the level of stock detail that is relevant. Valuable hardwoods can be controlled to a mixed width specification, while sheet materials can be sold by the unit sheet.

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.

FSC & PEFC Certification Reporting

Know what you have brought and sold by volume or full chain of custody. Accurate recording gives you automated Certification Reporting, saving you time and effort and ensuring you are always up to date.
