Our company has three lumberyards that our component plant services. Our service area is central Ontario with currently 16 different outside sales representatives. Component sales are just one aspect of United Lumber Building Centers, but a significant profit center and sales enhancer that United has embraced for many years. As we grew we started seeing a problem, which was how do we grow our business without increasing our operating cost? Doing the same things by adding more man-hours (people) was increasingly becoming a problem.
The sales teams of the different lumberyards were fighting over the limited resources of our component manufacturing (CM). Every CM has limited capacity, even after investing tens of thousands of dollars in new equipment, people, and new buildings. The phone calls for scheduling became an ever increasing game of who and what was the daily priority, causing untold headaches with our CM people and also the actual manufacturing. Customer service was starting to be negatively affected and we were spending far too much time chasing critical information.
We were using a very common truss management application for our communication needs and found that there was a lot more to communications than just pricing and scheduling. We took a chance and invested the time and effort to implement AppWright.
The AppWright app is a web based communication software that is capable of scheduling, files storage, email, task tracking, automated reminders and much more. In essence, once we actually started fully embracing and using it, it became a labor saving, time enhancer and something that every salesperson would only let go if you pried from their dead hands. What a difference it has made!
AppWright’s service and support have been stellar and we have been very pleased. The project processing and task tracking is all customized for our unique needs. Everything we had asked for has been delivered. When something needed tweaking or a fix, it was done right away.
Working with both truss applications and AppWright has been a non-issue for our designers and everyone else. We use the truss management application for costing only. Everything else is being done through the AppWright app. None of the common truss engineering management applications have anything to supplant AppWright as the communications platform of choice.
This biggest advantage is helping our sales team spend more time making more sales and maintaining great customer service. Most of the time-consuming phone calls, email game of tag and other time wasters have all but been eliminated. We have salespeople who are working weekends, nights or go on vacation in Europe and yet are still able to monitor the progress of their sales via the AppWright web browser. Everything they need is always just a few mouse clicks away. Also, automated reminders help everyone stay on track with project processing task and scheduling. They love it.
If you want something that can actually enhance the productivity of all your staff, including the sales team, I highly recommend AppWright. Compared to the cost of new equipment, this has been a true bargain.
We have been using AppWright for 5 years and find it to be a valuable tool to schedule our jobs. It simplifies working out of multiple locations. The ability to customize the program to suit our needs has made it an important part of our business software.
Collins Builders is a member of an exclusive group: They are one of the very few builders in Florida that have continued to prosper in spite of the extremely challenging conditions affecting housing markets nationwide.
It helps that they build affordable homes with a very high standard of quality and that they have a well-earned reputation for integrity. It also helps that they are extremely efficient in managing their entire business. One of their key success factors was the choice to utilize AppWright JobCenter for staying on top of everything that moves in their world. New prospects are entered into AppWright and the sales staff uses this data to help close deals faster and also analyze those that don’t. New home sales are managed from the very first credit-check and permit application all the way through feature selections, construction, and closing with the powerful job template and worklist management tools in AppWright JobCenter. Even the home options (selection sheets) are managed online, including importing pricing and configuration options from their accounting and estimating systems. The system provides their vendors and subcontractors free web-access to their specific job schedules, which are updated daily and kept extremely accurate by the Collins Builders job superintendents. This eliminates expensive and wasteful dry-runs by the vendors and improves quality for the entire build process. When the house is closed and enters the warranty and after-care phase, the entire warranty and customer service process is managed by AppWright JobCenter too. Customers can even use the order-entry module to enter warranty requests themselves directly on the web.
Installing specialty items like windows, doors, fireplaces and other items for the homebuilder market in the fast-growing North Georgia/Carolinas area is no small task. H2H needed a system to integrate multiple locations easily and streamline communication about different kinds of jobs that require their team to be on-time and under budget every day. AppWright provides the glue that holds their operation together and facilitates efficient job management. H2H implemented quickly and is reaping the benefits of top-quality job management tools from AppWright.
Every time a new retail store moves into a mall or office location it is customary to put up a protective barricade in front of the location during the construction, renovation, and move-in process. Most companies also want eye-catching graphics on these barricades to let customers know who is moving in. Boston Barricade provides a streamlined, turn-key service for quickly erecting and removing these protective barriers all over the nation. They also provide top-quality graphics to advertise the activity going on behind the barricade! Running a dozen or more regional offices supplying on-time service to thousands of malls in all 50 states is no simple task. AppWright JobCenter pulls it all together for Boston Barricade. Put-up, Take-Down, and Graphics orders are all managed seamlessly with high-quality communication (most it automated and templated) going out to mall developers, store managers, install teams and other parties. Boston Barricade is the best at what they do and they choose AppWright to make it work.
AppWright JobCenter has long been a popular solution in the homebuilding industry, but for Habijax we offered something that other systems didn’t. AppWright JobCenter is the best value in web-based job management software on the market today; no other tool does more and costs less. Habitat is a non-profit organization; they can’t spend millions on enterprise-class software. For only $500 per month, Habijax was able to fully automate their construction process and win an international award from Habitat for Humanity International as the most efficient and best managed affiliate of Habitat in the world. We know that their great staff and leadership had the most to do with that achievement – but they chose AppWright JobCenter to organize the work and we are proud to be part of their success.
Ferrazzano needed a way to efficiently manage installation and material ordering for their lines of high-quality flooring, countertops, and other surface materials around the state of Florida. Their design studios needed job information and their warehouses needed order details. Installers needed solid schedules and everybody needed it done affordably. AppWright delivered and so does Ferrazzano.
