HOW DID IMPLEMENTING BUILDERTREND HELP YOUR BUSINESS?
- Right now, we run 12 to 15 projects at a time and Buildertrend helps us to organize our team and our projects
- We’re able to maintain proactive communication with our clients, so we aren’t getting constant phone calls every day
- Daily Logs allow us to share daily progress and updates with our clients, so they never have to wonder what’s going on with their project
- It gives us a unified experience for our team and clients
WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM COMPETITION?
- We focus on the client experience
- We use proactive communication and set expectations from the very beginning
- We are working to get more client feedback to improve our processes, and we plan to use Buildertrend’s survey templates to do that
- We continue to bring our A-game because even if a client is content throughout the process, we don’t want to lose them at the end. We want to continue to make them happy
