How We Connect You To Your Custom Home Build
Shea Chappell is one of the first homebuilders in Colorado to utilize a client portal to connect clients with their homes. Whereas most builders still communicate through blueprints and text-dense change orders, BuilderTrend makes staying involved in your custom home build as easy as ordering catering for a dinner party or booking a vacation.
You’ll have real-time access to the team building your dream home from any place where you have internet access. Imagine being able to track your progress from poolside in Belize, or from your hotel room in Toronto – all from your laptop, tablet or smartphone. All you need is internet access and login information.
Read on to see how our digital capabilities will uncomplicate and demystify your custom homebuilding experience:
Access Your Home Anywhere, Anytime Through Your Portal:
Through the BuilderTrend Portal, our clients have real-time access to schedules, logs, status updates, photos, videos and other information. From desktop or mobile phone, you can upload your own photos, either from the site or from other resources. For example, clients can share photos from social media like Pinterest, or from the websites of manufacturers, distributors, architects and/or designers.
Stay Connected With The Mobile App:
Shea Chappell staff and our clients can have the BuilderTrend app on their smartphone. The app lets our team and you navigate all phases of your project; schedules, deadlines, to-do items, permits, change orders, etc. The app allows team members to upload photos and videos, too, which are far more informative than text entries.
An Interface Clients Can Love:
The BuilderTrend Interface is incredibly user-friendly. Although it provides for all the needs of contractors, it’s easily understood by clients and those with less experience in building a custom home. The interface makes it easy for you to stay engaged, reducing confusion and anxiety.
Notification Keep The Team On The Same Page:
One of the effects of the pandemic was an unanticipated surge in building and remodeling activity. Reduced staff at regional building departments were overwhelmed with requests for permits and inspections, resulting in extended delays for clients and homebuilders.
Shea Chappell adapted by taking advantage of BuilderTrend’s notifications capabilities. BuilderTrend sent notifications to team members’ smartphones with updates on permit status, inspection requests, schedules and completions. Real-time updates reduced missed appointments, and project supervisors were prompted to schedule subcontractors to fix issues.
Dynamic Scheduling: Eliminate Surprises:
BuilderTrend uses Gantt charts to express schedules in graphic form, making progress far easier to track. It even links schedules automatically; for example, if an addition is made to the foundation, BuilderTrend will notify the supplier to push back the schedule for the framer, all without being told.
Track Your Home through Daily Logs:
The S/C team will update your project weekly through project logs, posting text updates, photos and videos to keep you on top of your home’s progress. You can post comments, kudos and reminders to the team, too.
BuilderTrend gives custom home clients and contractors the advanced project management tools that huge commercial contractors use, in a form that is accessible and understandable.
