WAYNE, PA - August 21, 2007 - As the premier integrated software provider for large-enterprise lumber dealers and building component manufacturers, Deacom, Inc. today announces that Carter Lumber has selected the DEACOM Integrated Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software System to refine and manage its manufacturing business processes. With over 200 stores in 10 states, Carter Lumber is one of the United States' top building materials retailers and manufacturers of trusses, custom moldings, millwork, engineered lumber, and prefabricated wall panels.
