Builders use software to improve customer service in challenging market conditions
ORLANDO, Feb. 07, 2022 – Buildxact, a global SaaS company providing a simple solution for residential builders to better manage and grow their business, will demonstrate at the 2022 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida. Attendees will learn how dealers and builders increasingly use software to help each other win more jobs amid climbing material prices and a tight labor market.
Demonstrations and conversations with industry leaders about this trend and other digital innovations will be held at the Buildxact booth, #W6871. Using Buildxact, custom home builders are reducing the time it takes to complete painstaking, manual tasks like material takeoffs by as much as 80%.
“We have worked with many builders who today have greater understanding and transparency into how their business runs and as a result are winning more jobs. They are free from the office and out on the job getting more of what truly matters done,” David Murray, Buildxact CEO, said. “At this year’s Builders’ Show, we will show them how our latest product developments extend productivity to their dealer.”
Successful dealers are now integrating material pricing directly into the Buildxact platform. Builders are free to research and send orders to their dealer at a time most convenient to them. And a recent integration with Epicor BisTrack makes it straightforward, as dealers can now use their familiar ERP to upload up-to-date price lists and process orders. This integration carries several benefits:
- Up to 5x less time needed for dealers and builders to send customer quotes
- Increased accuracy of orders as need for follow-up phone calls and emails drops
- More time available for dealer, builder project planning and consultation
The media is invited to Buildxact’s press event on Wednesday 2/9 from 7:30-8:30 a.m. in the booth for interviews and more details regarding this new product feature. Media and interested builders and dealers can also join the Buildxact team each day to hear about this latest price integration feature and how fully integrated cloud-based tools from Buildxact can help builders manage projects end-to-end; from preparing quotes and estimates to tracking profitability using online financial dashboards.
Buildxact will also host a daily Job. Done. Happy Hour in their booth, which will spotlight thought leadership discussions on how builders can stay abreast of the latest trends.
