When we originally launched BuildBook last year, we made the choice to build it as a mobile-first solution for construction teams. It was the right place to start given how mobile our industry is.
However, we also know that sometimes mobile isn't always the most ideal vehicle for using BuildBook — setting up projects before the job starts, teams who have both office and field staff running the day-to-day operations, and even those evening sessions in the office sending a bunch of client updates.
After receiving many requests from customers, we put the wheels in motion and began the development of our web-based application.
We are thrilled to announce that the BuildBook web app has now launched and is available to use starting today!
With only a few minor exceptions, this is the same fully-functioning version of the BuildBook mobile app that you know and use every day.
Here are some highlights:
You’ll now be able to get your project started right by setting up tasks, milestones, payment reminders, selection schedules, and more in just a fraction of the time from your laptop.
The small tasks and milestones during a project are often just as important as the big ones. With project setup this easy, you’ll never question the benefit versus the time needed to enter them again.
One app, same data — everywhere. Now your team and your clients can work together in BuildBook regardless of the device they use.
Whether you are using BuildBook on your computer or your mobile device, it’s the same app — meaning it’s always in sync.
At home, in the office or on the jobsite – BuildBook is everywhere that you are.
Sometimes you need to zoom in to see the details in your project photos, and a small mobile device isn’t always the best way to do that. To help deliver the clarity you need, we’ve upgraded our entire app to support high-resolution photos on both mobile and web.
Whether you’re on your phone at the jobsite or back at the office on your laptop, your images in BuildBook will now always look amazing.
To go along with the release of our web app, we’ve completely redesigned the interface to improve your experience on both web and mobile. While the layout has remained largely the same, this sleek new look makes it even easier for you to navigate — and improves the visual appeal for your clients.
With the upgraded design and launch of our web app, the groundwork is now in place for the release of some really BIG and exciting tools that we’ll be introducing to you in the coming months — the first of which is already well underway.
Our ultimate goal at BuildBook is to provide you with powerful, easy-to-use tools that help you improve communication in order to get more leads, win more bids and impress more clients.
Up until now, we’ve been focused on building and improving the core pillar of our project communication product, which is the BuildBook you know and use today.
For the past few months, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you the next big evolution of our platform — BuildBook Pages.
While our core product has been focused on helping you improve communication during projects to satisfy your clients, BuildBook Pages will be focused on helping you improve communication before projects to attract more clients. And, they’ll all be tied together within your account.
The first release of BuildBook Pages is coming very soon — so stay tuned for what’s to come. Join the waitlist now <- to get early access.
