Popularity of BuilderMT's "Apps" Surges, Offering Unprecedented Mobile to Back-Office Connectivity
LAKEWOOD, Colo. --(Business Wire)--
BuilderMT, North America's best-selling construction workflow
software solution provider, announced today that its growing collection
of Apps has seen remarkably strong adoption rates among homebuilders.
With the increased availability of broadband mobile connectivity,
superintendents and workers in the field have found that they can use
BuilderMT's Apps to interact with their back-office operations on an
enterprise level, just through their smartphones or iPads.
BuilderMT's Apps include Mobile Scheduling, Trade Portal and
Scheduling can run on any browser-based device.
Since it is licensed by the user, it can be run on any laptop, iPad
and/or phone after the user securely logs in. This remote access allows
a builder to update a scheduled activity, approve purchase orders,
manage variances, maintain quality control walk-throughs, initiate
vendor notifications and even send text and email messages, as well as
make phone calls to suppliers through any smart phone.
Portal is also a web-based service, which builders host
themselves. Trade Portal gives homebuilders flexible, interactive,
real-time communications with their trades about information like bid
requests and quotations, schedules, payments, documents, purchase orders
and notifications. Even better, whenever a change is made in BuilderMT's
WMS, it is instantly communicated to the trades through Trade Portal.
With BuilderMT's newest App, Superintendent
Portal, supers can share schedules, purchase orders,
transactions, subs' transactions, job alerts, documents and more, all
from one web-based location. A customizable "dashboard" presents the
supers with updates and events that affect their schedule, with
visibility to such information as approved, issued or cancelled purchase
orders. All that information can be viewed by project, schedule or by
completion dates. Schedule notifications can be automatically triggered
through the Superintendent Portal's scheduling tool. Also, with the
App's daily tasks tab, the superintendents have access to current
activities and activities by "due by" dates.
"BuilderMT recognized the value of Apps long before Google or Apple (News - Alert) made
them part of the contemporary culture," said BuilderMT's president Tom
Gebes. "Through our Apps and portal technology, we offer a powerful
combination of full mobility with enterprise access, and it's all an
integral part of our award-winning Workflow Management Suite."
