Simplifying Technology for the Field

In the old days, a home project usually consisted of a trip to the lumber yard, the plumbing supply house, the electrical shop, and the local paint store. Each one of these stores had its local favorite because they had the best materials at the right price and certainly the best service. It is no wonder why they got the most business in town. In fact, the owner made it a point to talk with the customers so they knew they would get the service that the bigger shops could not provide. The only trouble with having all the best-in-class material providers is that there were eight different locations to drive to, eight accounts to manage, and overall was stealing time away from the job. This still worked fine until Bernie Marcus and Arthur blank had an idea. They thought, what If we could give a customer all the great materials, service, and pricing in one place instead of eight? Their idea to monopolize the market was not a new one, but a needed one in construction. Now we’ve seen the aftermath of their little idea become a worldwide, one stop shops for all things construction: Home Depot. Now we can spend more time doing the work and less time gathering all the materials.

The “Appageddon”

Reducing Your Apps

  1. Does it integrate with my ERP system as well as other apps, databases and excel lists?
  2. Will it allow me to reduce the number of apps my project managers have to utilize in the field?
  3. Is it mobile capable for any device?
  4. Does it allow in app chat to reduce email and phone calls?
  5. Is the solution truly a no-code platform for ease of use?
  6. Is the price point affordable for the value?
  7. Can they get our company running in a relatively short time window so as not to burden staff production?
