Popularity of BuilderMT's "Apps" Surges, Offering Unprecedented Mobile to Back-Office Connectivity

LAKEWOOD, Colo. --(Business Wire)--

BuilderMT, North America's best-selling construction workflow software solution provider, announced today that its growing collection of Apps has seen remarkably strong adoption rates among homebuilders. With the increased availability of broadband mobile connectivity, superintendents and workers in the field have found that they can use BuilderMT's Apps to interact with their back-office operations on an enterprise level, just through their smartphones or iPads. BuilderMT's Apps include Mobile Scheduling, Trade Portal and Superintendent Portal.

Mobile Scheduling can run on any browser-based device. Since it is licensed by the user, it can be run on any laptop, iPad and/or phone after the user securely logs in. This remote access allows a builder to update a scheduled activity, approve purchase orders, manage variances, maintain quality control walk-throughs, initiate vendor notifications and even send text and email messages, as well as make phone calls to suppliers through any smart phone.

Trade Portal is also a web-based service, which builders host themselves. Trade Portal gives homebuilders flexible, interactive, real-time communications with their trades about information like bid requests and quotations, schedules, payments, documents, purchase orders and notifications. Even better, whenever a change is made in BuilderMT's WMS, it is instantly communicated to the trades through Trade Portal.

With BuilderMT's newest App, Superintendent Portal, supers can share schedules, purchase orders, transactions, subs' transactions, job alerts, documents and more, all from one web-based location. A customizable "dashboard" presents the supers with updates and events that affect their schedule, with visibility to such information as approved, issued or cancelled purchase orders. All that information can be viewed by project, schedule or by completion dates. Schedule notifications can be automatically triggered through the Superintendent Portal's scheduling tool. Also, with the App's daily tasks tab, the superintendents have access to current activities and activities by "due by" dates.

"BuilderMT recognized the value of Apps long before Google or Apple (News - Alert) made them part of the contemporary culture," said BuilderMT's president Tom Gebes. "Through our Apps and portal technology, we offer a powerful combination of full mobility with enterprise access, and it's all an integral part of our award-winning Workflow Management Suite."
