Once upon a time, home builders spent countless hours bouncing back and forth between their office and worksites in an effort to manage projects effectively.
And what did they get for their efforts? Lots of wasted time and inaccurate, old information. Phone calls, clipboards, and constant trips to the office were essential for running a successful construction company at the time. But they certainly weren’t efficient.
Little did we know, that was all about to change.
Fast forward to today, and you’ll get a different story. Home builders who have embraced technology in their process are now enjoying a massive increase in efficiency and accuracy.
And it’s all thanks to smart phones and the cloud.
Now, from virtually any worksite, we can:
- view the construction schedule
- send and receive progress updates
- schedule and update quality checks
- verify deliveries
- photo document and update
- verify customer selections and specifications
- verify trade contractors completed work and authorize payment
- and much, much more.
Just the ability to send and receive photos to and from trade contractors to answer questions and resolve discrepancies is a gigantic time saver.
What does this mean for your custom home project?
Increased efficiency and accuracy equals more bang for your buck!
The time we save on making trips to the office or visiting trade contractors is directly tied to your budget
. Thanks to smart phones and the cloud, we can make better use of your investment without sacrificing quality.
It’s a win-win situation for everybody involved — home builders, clients, and trade contractors. I guess you’d call that a win-win-win situation?
Either way, we love smart phones and the cloud at Estes Builders, and we’ll continue to adopt any new technology that make us more effective as home builders.
