SB Lite

Introducing SmartBuild Lite for Metal Buildings

SmartBuild Systems is pleased to announce the launch of SmartBuild Lite, a new software product for manufacturers of metal panels!

What is SB Lite?

SB Lite offers the core features of our industry-leading SmartBuild Post Frame software for automating bids, yet the output is limited to metal panels, trim, and accessories.

Using the same simple design process as the original, SB Lite calls out the metal materials for:

  • Cut lists
  • Shop drawings
  • Material lists
  • Pricing

Who is SB Lite for?

Many metal panel manufacturers told us that SmartBuild for Post Frame is a great program but is more than what they need.  While they have employees who do takeoffs for post frame structures, they only take off the metal materials they supply to customers. Instead, they asked us for a more limited – and less expensive — program that fits their needs. SB Lite is the solution!

Why would a metal panel manufacturer or distributor want to use SB Lite?

Simple.  Instead of spending an hour or more figuring metal requirements on a project, that same process takes only 5 to 10 minutes using SB Lite.  Plus, using SB Lite eliminates most errors that occur when human beings figure metal by hand.

Which buildings does SB Lite work on?

  • Carports
  • Garages
  • Sheds
  • Pole Barns
  • ALL metal buildings

What does SB Lite cost?

SB Lite is only $200 per month per user.  There is no initial purchase price, and SB Lite can be canceled anytime.

What is involved in the setup?

We set up SB Lite users with a generic database representative of the products manufactured, industry-wide, for post frame, which means you start running designs in minutes.  If you want to set up your own proprietary database – we will – but you will use the generic database while we help you set up your own.
