We all know the Independent and Family Owned Building Suppliers have been the backbone of our Community for years. But, in todays world, the "Big Box" stores are moving into many communities.
Times have changed
We all know the internet has changed the construction industry. High-speed communication in today’s environment is so important to all businesses, “it’s priceless”. Many Builders are now looking for an Online Estimating and Job Management system, in order to keep up with Business systems' technologies. They want a system to replace the pencil, paper and obsolete spreadsheet documents. They are finding the best tools in their trucks are a Laptop, IPod, IPhone or Droid. They want to communicate with their Reps. for Take-Offs, Pricing and any thing else that will make their job run smoother and of course, make a better profit.
Custom Builder 11/2012
As a Custom Builder, we have always taken pride in giving our customers whatever they may want. We have found of late, this is becoming much more challenging. Most of our jobs are referrals from previous customers and we were hearing some disatisfaction with us providing only certain products. When recently talking with our supplier rep., he introduced us to 6x6builder Online Construction Estimating and Construction Management System, so we opened a free trial account. By adding our Rep as a user, this gave him special but limited access to our personal account. We then created the job that I was currently working on and added construction notes on each section. These notes appear when we are estimating a particular section. 6x6 is preloaded with many different sections and types so it made it easy for us to see how the system works. We also customized each section for items that our Rep sells. I had a meeting and had to leave, so our Rep agreed to work on the Master Sections by adding and removing items. When I got home, we were anxious to see what he had done. I accessed my account on line, and started to review the Master Sections he had completed. I added a few more misc. items that I need to address when estimating....like hook utility blades, garbage bags, and blue booties. These are small items but by adding them, it saves me a trip to the supplier at a later date.
Here's how it works...
I the builder, create a job or project, by choosing all the phases that pertains to the project. I add construction notes and requests from my customer by each section.
