Challenging Times Still Have Opportunities

An Open letter from SmartBuild Systems

Dear Post Frame Industry,

After spending almost 40 years of my career writing software for the wood truss industry, I refocused my efforts on the post frame industry about a year ago. Throughout 2019, I got to know you. I learned about your long work weeks, about the hours you spend generating professional proposals, about your desire to close more business. You work hard!

We face a unique time early in 2020. COVID-19 is accelerating a change that has long been on the horizon in the way we work. Innovation and ingenuity are the future. Those who will be most successful will ride this wave forward and we can help! We built the core tool to automate key functions for post frame including:

  • Take-offs
  • Pricing
  • Labor calcs
  • Proposal generation
  • Construction drawing preparation
  • Order process between contractor and supplier

For those of you looking to invest in automation that has already paid dividends for our early-adopting contractors and suppliers, please reach out today! I’d love to show you how we can help suppliers attract more contractors and contractors reduce their bid time dramatically.

This is a time of challenges, but it’s also a time of opportunity. Let’s seize it together.
