Tech Powered Convenience
The Lumber Industry is terribly behind other industries. When you can track your pizza being made in real time on Domino’s app or summon a car to your exact location with Uber, shouldn’t a Lumber Mill be able to sell your products without having to pick up the phone? We think so and are building that capability and much more!
Anywhere & Anytime
The BuyChain Lumber Marketplace is built from the ground up to be responsive which means it will adjust to the size of any device and screen from any web browser. Next year we will be launching native applications for iOS and Android to make it even easier on mobile devices. We believe you should be able to price, sell, track orders, and get order confirmations from the mill, the office, your couch, the beach, the golf course…basically anywhere!
