April product news: New features to streamline admin

Welcome to our first product update for the year!  

We’re super excited to collaborate with you and share our exciting new features, helping you save time and win more jobs. Let’s kick it off with the latest releases that will help give you more time to do the things you love most! 

Organize your week in a dash

Seeing what tasks are coming up for the team is crucial for managing any job. View and allocate tasks and resources across different jobs via the Dashboard. Choose between job or resource views, select a time period and even email or SMS reminders. Everything you need to manage your business in a dash.

Accelerate quote approvals

Buildxact can help your business move from quote to contract quicker. Chose how you want homeowners to view your quote – via email or Client Portal. Better yet, give them the option to digitally accept the quote then and there. So even if you can’t get out to see the customer, the job can still progress with no hold-ups.

Wanna get in on the latest features? 

The team here at Buildxact are builders too! When we create new features, we like to get feedback on our build. That’s where you can get involved! Buildxact Labs gives you the opportunity to try new features. They are concepts, but if there’s a feature you’re super keen to get your hands on, or you are a Buildxact fan who wants to have a say in the development process, Buildxact Labs is for you.
