Founded in London, Ontario, Canada, in 2018, BuilderBase focuses on how Builders and Renovators communicate with clients, skilled trades, municipalities, etc. BuilderBase software is explicitly created for builders by builders. It makes your builds easier. Organize everything online from contracts, trade quotes, and even client selections. All online, all BuilderBase!
The founders of BuilderBase both had very similar experiences when they were undertaking their individual builds. Although different situations, the same outcome was clear for both of the founders that there needed to be better technology focused on streamlining communication and organization between the Builder, Client and everyone involved in a project. After researching what technology existed it was clear that an easy to use platform did not exist in the marketplace.
The goal the founders had was to not create a boring and cumbersome project management tool, but to create a software platform that focused firstly on communication between Builders and Clients that also organized the information needed with each build effectively. Involving builders in every step of the process to create BuilderBase has allowed us to create a software platform for Builders by Builders.
The first founder was building a large custom home with a very experienced Builder. The founder found that everything was very disorganized, using ineffective technology that didn’t really match the issues being faced. The technology solutions didn’t match the problems. Although the end result of the build was successful, there were major gaps in communication, selections were confusing, timelines ran over their estimates, wasted time with rework, extra costs that weren’t needed and issues that could have been avoided if a proper platform was being used.
The second founder was building a cottage on an island in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. This founder was working with a local builder who didn’t use any technology at all for the build. It was clear that if a software solution was created, that it needed to be super simple and easy to use for any level of technological ability to have success. With this build, due to the location being 4 hours away, checking on progress wasn’t a quick task to complete. Given this, quick progress updates were a main feature in BuilderBase. This build faced similar problems when the founders compared notes on their experiences.
The founders learned that Builders had a strong desire to communicate better and wanted to be more organized, there just wasn’t a useful tool that was available to them.
Born from these two experiences comes BuilderBase. Over a year of research working with builders allowed us to focus in on the major pain points of any build or renovation to create an exceptional product.
We look forward to hearing your feedback on BuilderBase to continue to improve!
