Manufactured Timber Products (roof trusses, framing, walls)
LILAC Timber Software combines LILAC ERP business automation functions, (Inventory, Order Processing, Accounting, Payroll, Reporting) with designed extensions for the correct handling of timber.

Lennox Computer have supported timber enterprises for over thirty years, and combine this extensive experience with the ability to deliver modern state-of-the-art Windows based software.

LILAC accommodates logs, sawn, sheet, and moulded products.

Orders, Cutting Lists, Invoices, and Despatch Documents compute quantity and price calculations allowing stock levels to be maintained in an appropriate unit of measure - most often M3 (Cubic Metres).

For millers of timber, requirements regarding log acquisition, usage, and remaining stock is addressed by a complete Log Stock sub-ledger. Log Stock provides for important "chain of custody" reporting requirements with respect to crown timber versus privately sourced timber, together with royalty and shipping calculations.
Timber Codes

Barcode Printing
& Scanning


Timber Tally
Products may be grouped with a prefix, HWD 025025, where the trailing 6 digits indicate the end-section dimensions of the timber (E.g. two, 3-digit values in mm with leading zeros as necessary). Another approach is of the form 70X35 HWD F17 where it is desired to group products primarily by sizes, in this case 70mmX35mm.

LILAC prints barcodes on polymer stationary with-standing sunshine and rain for months and years. Barcodes are linked to your timber tracking, retail, and accounting database. Barcode scanning is an extremely efficient method of data entry.

Freight charges are calculated per customer per Tonne, and included in a selling price.

The Timber Tally applet window (pictured below) appears within Quotations, Sales Orders, and Point of Sale Processing. Timber Tally calculates Linear, Cubic, and Weight measurements dynamically.
