Four Applications
That Make Up The Digital Toolbox For Your
Construction Company

The five applications supported by the Builder Academy will help you establish and maintain a lean, efficient organization.

The applications provide a business environment in which the website presence is constantly and easily reinforced, team members share important information across multiple platforms, professional level services are provided to the client base, project status is constantly updated, and managers manage instead of react.

Selected by a builder trained in systems management and financial analysis, this software and training will make your business more efficient and more productive by coordinating the efforts of your construction team and aiming those efforts at providing better service with fewer employees for more clients.

Each application in the curriculum is supported by a constantly expanding library of how-to videos which the member builder can access. Additionally, these are the applications I use, so I can offer direct assistance or find someone to help you if you have a question.

If you are going to stay in the construction business, you know you are going to have to
change the way you operate.
