Need a schedule fast?

They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

And for those that have been on board with BuildIT for a while, their "ounce of prevention" is their monthly subscription to our service, allowing them to be more organized, more in control of their schedules, and better able to communicate changes and share critical information with those they do business with.

But what about those folks looking for a quick fix to their immediate problem (ah, that would be "cure") - well, we're here for you too.

You've come looking for a schedule, a "construction timeline", to satisfy someone (an owner, the engineer, the bank, city official) and you don't have time to sit in class and learn some complicated, bloated construction software package with big bad software manuals. As a matter of fact, you're probably thinking that even though BuildIT seems pretty simple based on your quick look as you run through your free test drive, you fear that it may take more time than you have to solve your problem.

Relax. The answer is simple:

Get us to do the work for you.

That's right.

We'll take the information from wherever it happens to be - in your head, a faxed preliminary schedule, some tasks listed on an Excel spreadsheet, or chicken scratch on a piece of paper - and get you started with a schedule. In fact, we may even finish it together depending on what you bring to the table and how "fleshed out" your existing information is.

In minutes, you'll see the schedule right on your computer screen display, while we're talking.

If you need it printed off, in colour, we can help with that too, creating a PDF that you can print, or email, to those that are breathing down your neck waiting for it.

So here's the deal if you just need a schedule, fast - and you're not sure if you're going to stick around to become a BuildIT phenom.

Just tell us you want a schedule, period.

Our "Quick Schedule Turnaround Package" includes:

>> BuildIT access for 1 month (1 user account)

>> Setup and configuration of your BuildIT account

>> Our expertise to help you create, and complete, a schedule

You'll then be placed on our monthly subscription program until you decide you are no longer getting value from the service.

Wow, that's better than the deal your getting on your cell phone!

So, make that call and let's get that schedule started. We guarantee we'll solve your scheduling issues ... and if not, we'll put on our sad face, and refund your subscription.

Picture of Pain

Need I say more?

Talked to a customer the other day paying over $5.40 a gallon (for you Canadians, just take your price per litre and multiply by 4, you'll get the idea). It's the price you pay to get your rig to the jobsite. It's part of your costs of doing business. And those costs are only increasing, with no end or relief in sight.

So what does this have to do with BuildIT?

Lots.

The vision of BuildIT from Day 1 was the idea of a mobile office. Giving construction professionals access to their business information, scheduling, and communications "grand central" from their truck, the jobsite, or wherever they happen to be.

Take a trip to the local buider supply yard to meet with the salesperson there, or a trip back to the office to pick up some paperwork... multiply these needless trips by x $$ that it costs you in time, lost productivity, gas/diesel, extra miles on your lease - and you've bought a subscription to BuildIT many times over (and that's just the first month!)

Construction folks are looking for ways to save, now more than ever. And time is money, no matter how you slice it.

BuildIT saves you time, by giving you your office at your fingertips. Make timely decisions on your job scheduling right from the site, send out instructions to your subs and vendors by email/text msg or web fax, and keep track of all those slippery items from one central location. Take care of matters as they happen, avoid the costly screw-ups that happen because you waited too long, and didn't get the right information to the right person at the right time.

There is a big difference between now, and "right now" – having a web based system on your side allows you to take care of things "right now", so you don't waste time and money dealing with them "later", when you're back at the office, or back home. Imagine what you'll accomplish in the same amount of time?

Not to mention the fewer gallons you'll be burning doing things the way your competition does!

BuildIT retails for $85 per month – put that in your tank and see how far you'll go in a week. It's a no brainer – with your savings, you'll have more $$ to fill up the boat or ATV's on the weekend.

Try BuildIT for a month, and if you're not satisfied, I'll give you your $85 back and you can go "fill 'er up".

Green / Carbon Neutral / Environmentally Friendly BuildIT (whatever)

OK, time for us to jump on this bandwagon.

Even my kids are taking about the environment, polar bears on the endangered species list, and the Toyota Prius.

So where does BuildIT factor into all this?

Consider that:

  1. We are web based - no software to install, therefore no diskettes or CD's, boxes, packaging, printed manuals (that nobody reads anyways), shipping to your door by UPS. That'll make Al Gore happy.
  2. Our product is "information" (code; ones and zeros) put together in a way that gives you what you need most, when you need it. So, there is no offgassing, harmful emissions, ozone or rainforest depletion caused by our progress (although we have been known to "burn the midnight oil" occasionally).
  3. Our prinicpals and contractors work together as a virtual team, so none of us clog up the arteries at rush hour - we put all our time and effort into making BuildIT better for you.
  4. BuildIT by virtue of being web based, allows our customers to access their accounts from virtually anywhere, saving them needless trips to the office, or contractor supply yard. They get done more in less time, and burn less fuel in their trucks.
  5. We have geothermal companies that use or have invested in BuildIT - geothermal is all the rage now... get the heat from the earth in the winter, take it out of your home in the summer. They're obviously on to something, and so are we.
  6. When our customers use the system to share information, like files and schedules, there is less reliance on the old fashioned paper chase, copying of blueprints, snail mail, etc. We may never become totally "paperless", but we sure can reduce in that area, and save a tree at the same time.

OK, it may be a stretch, but as a customer, you can attest to the above "green advantages" and feel good about your subscription to BuildIT, not to mention the outstanding return on investment you'll realize.

Just to see if you're reading this, prove to me that you own either an energy efficient heating system (geothermal, solar) or hybrid automobile and I'll give you your first month subscription free, an $85 value - just tell me you want the "BuildIT Green discount".
