Solution: Start with your smart device
A single app can help your company on many levels and bring you into the high-tech age without missing a beat. For example, Houzz Pro’s 3D Floor Planner tool lets you quickly create 3D floor plans using your smartphone. Just scan a room with your device to record its measurements and instantly create a base floor plan. Then you can add windows, doors and products and view your entire design in walkthrough or dollhouse mode. The app also helps you keep track of every aspect of your projects in one place, from client approvals to invoice payment.
No one would say that being a builder in the current climate is easy, but there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic. For one, having more demand for your work than you can meet is never a bad problem to have. And in construction specifically right now, high demand also means that homebuyers on the whole aren’t balking at higher prices. For another, you may be forced to find operational efficiencies that will improve your business for the long haul. Even starting with small steps, such as adopting Houzz Pro or joining the Houzz Trade Program, can make a huge difference in smoother operations, worker satisfaction, and a bigger bottom line.
