White Paper: Building Supply Industry Insights Report 2022

With most businesses now running hybrid ERP, our report reveals what hard-working building suppliers really require from their ERP partners and solutions.

Q: Describe your current LBM supplier, and why you buy from them?

A: We buy a majority of our framing, dry-in, siding and interior trim materials from The Building Center. They have serviced us for decades and are a family-owned business (just like us). Their quality and service have always been dependable. I like keeping our dollars local, and I enjoy building and maintaining rock-solid relationships.

Q: In order of importance, what are the top three things you look for from a supplier?

A: Quality, service, and price—in that order. Our clients deserve the best product and our project managers deserve the best service, but the price still has to be in line so that we all win.
