BuildBeam is an end-to-end construction management application designed to support small specialty trade and home improvement contractors from sales to installation.
From the dashboard, users can review pending to-dos and the day’s appointment calendar, check the latest messages and job statuses and even access suppliers’ digital catalogs. Purchase orders can be auto-drafted and transmitted with one click, and upon receipt of goods, the PO and invoice numbers are matched.
BuildBeam is also browser-based, so it is accessible on iPads and other mobile devices, which means users can generate estimates, collect signatures and process payments on-site, rather than fill out forms by hand and re-enter the data when back in the office.
Since all customer and job data is stored in a single database, reports, forecasts and other analyses are created as needed. Other features include Excel integration, cost database, lead tracking, finance calculator and document, contract, drawing and photo management.
