Buildxact expands to Canada

Buildxact is expanding its services into Canada’s $239b residential construction market.  With established customers such as renovation franchise Smith & Sons, and a strategic partnership with the Housing Association of Vancouver (HAVAN), the company expects excellent growth from this new market.

Buildxact’s CEO, David Murray, recognises many similarities between the Australian and Canadian markets, making it a logical place to further expand internationally, after the launch into the New Zealand market late last year.  “Like Australia, the residential construction market is under-serviced in terms of quality, easy to use software tools. Buildxact’s integrated estimating and job management solution gives Canadian builders and contractors fit-for-purpose tools that they can afford.”

Launching officially at the 14th Annual HAVAN Members Expo, HAVAN CEO Ron Rapp commented: “Our partnership with Buildxact is one of our recent initiatives to add value to the HAVAN membership. Accurate estimates, fast quoting, and active cost tracking are key to a successful business, and Buildxact offers a solution that is specifically designed for residential builders and renovators.”

Adam MacLean, Director of Business development for Canada added: “From our conversations with the association and the success of the event, it’s clear that the demand is there. The vast majority of builders and contractors in the residential market are still struggling with spreadsheets, paper or tools that only do part of the job for them.”

“Customers really value Buildxact’s simplicity and ease-of-use, as well as the fact that estimating, quoting and jobs can all be managed in the one place.” Adam said.  “We’re unique in that combination and what we have to offer will make a big difference to the business success of the residential construction industry in Canada.”

Buildxact also intends to replicate the successful strategy of teaming up with accountants and industry consultants who look to help the industry automate and leverage the cloud and mobile tools available today.
