The Ideal Computer Group, based in Vancouver, BC, has been developing, implementing and supporting IdealWare since 1980.

IdealWare is an accounting, distribution and point-of-sales system which, while powerful and sophisticated, is also easy to use.

IdealWare was initially developed for the building supply industry but has also been successfully implemented in a number of other wholesale and retail environments.

IdealWare is a good fit for the following types of businesses:

  • Lumber Yards
  • Hardware Stores
  • Home Centres
  • Lumber Traders

as well as for most wholesalers and retailers in general, including those that sell the following:

  • Drywall
  • Building Materials in general
  • Office Products
  • Furniture
  • Lighting
  • Plumbing
  • Marine
  • Electrical
  • Paint

IdealWare is very strong in situations involving multiple warehouses and/or stores. Our Multi-Location Integration works equally well in situations where each location has it's own server, all locations are on a single server or some mix of the two.

Ideal provides quality software, support and training to a wide range of customers from small single-user sites to large multi-location chains with hundred’s of concurrent users. Our goal is to provide the highest level of product satisfaction and support to all customers regardless of size. “Dedication to Quality” is the cornerstone of Ideal's business philosophy.

The power and flexibility of IdealWare will help you increase customer service, decrease processing time, improve sales margins and make informed decisions. IdealWare features simple and efficient procedures, multi-user, multi-company and multi-store capability, with a consistent and user-friendly interface.
