BuildBook helps residential construction companies and their clients collaborate more effectively, make better decisions, and simplify the construction process. Builders love us because we help them minimize miscommunication that leads to costly mistakes, make more money, grow their business, and delight their customers. Homeowners love us because we give them a feeling of control and help make the construction and renovation process less stressful.
This industry is full of older “kitchen sink” style software products that are expensive, dated and difficult to use. Most people who need this software are non-technical and struggle on a daily basis to keep track of the details within their business. These struggles are where costly errors typically come in.
Our mission is to create intuitive software that is easily adoptable by builders and their clients alike, and improves the outcomes for both sides.
Helping Real People
Our end users are construction small business owners and their clients (homeowners). Every change we make, every feature we add has a visible, direct impact on the bottom line of our customers. You will be able to see your work being used by real people and see the impact it has on their lives. Our success as a company is directly linked to the success of our customers. We’re only doing well if they’re doing well.
