A legacy of industry-leading technology
ECi Spruce innovates business intelligence for the lumber and building materials industries with superior technology and service. Our flagship software, Spruce™, empowers more than 15,000 users to access information, manage workflows, analyze operations and grow their businesses—quicker and easier than ever before.
Since 1985, Spruce has been an engine of growth for LBM businesses. Nineteen visionaries launched the company when they realized the potential for technology to streamline LBM operations and inventories. With software from Finserv, they developed the original full-featured UNIX-based SprucePlus. Continual enhancements maintained our industry leadership until the acquisition of Anasys Windows® based software in 2000. This was the catalyst for developing the industry’s most advanced and easy-to-use software, based on the Microsoft®.NET framework.
SpruceWare.NET was released in 2006. Years of consistent client growth prompted our acquisition in 2015 by ECi Software Solutions, a company known for high-quality software solutions in niche industries. With ECi’s resources, Spruce has added cloud-based access, state-of-the-art features, mobility applications and cross-platform functionality.
