4 Ways To Make Builder Order Processing Easier
As a residential contractor, your day-to-day operations are closely tied to the complexities, changes and schedules involved in completing a home build. Before scheduling your crews and deliveries, builder orders have to be reviewed, confirmed and entered into your various software solutions. Working with multiple builders, you also have to deal with and understand different order formats to gather all the necessary information. You also must be constantly aware of changes that can happen quickly and need an equally quick response. To complicate things, you’re notified of these changes through multiple channels, including texts, emails, web portals, etc.
If you don’t have accurate, up-to-date information about orders, instructions and schedules, an entire project can go off track, delaying your crews, costing you money and Builder goodwill. So, how can you get the information you need, maintain contact with every Builder’s back office and keep to your timelines, all without driving your staff crazy?

The foundation of an effective Order Management process is the ability to receive purchase orders electronically in real time. But using Hyphen SupplyPro plus Renditions can make this process even easier.
