Every one of us has had to change the way we do business during the coronavirus pandemic. With roofing being an essential business, many contractors are scrambling to find the right tools to allow them to continue safe interaction with their customers and while they are on the jobsite.
One of the best places to find the technological resources that you need is from your distributor. Distributors are working with customers throughout the country and can not only provide feedback as to what contractors in different regions are doing, but many have developed their own technology resources to help contractors.
Beacon Building Products is offering contractors its innovative Beacon 3D+ modeling app that builds a model of a home using photos that you take on site. From the model, accurate measurements are derived, allowing for you to create precise estimates.
Before a customer’s home becomes a jobsite, the sales and estimating process must happen. Video conferencing tools have suddenly become the way to communicate with customers before visiting their home. While you are conducting virtual meetings with your customers, you can help put their concerns about social distancing and face-to-face interaction at ease by explaining the process of how the Beacon 3D+ app works.
You visit their home, but stand at a distance to capture photos of all the sides of the house using the modeling app. There will not be a need for any interaction at all. If they still have concerns, you can consider adding the premium option that allows the homeowner to capture the photos and send them to you, eliminating the need for anyone to visit the property. Beacon’s 3D+ platform can help contractors close more jobs without meeting customers face-to-face.
There are options to create a model of the entire home or just the roof. Either way, in about 30 minutes you will have your model and measurements ready to create the estimate.
Even better is the free trial period so you can decide if this is a tool that you want to add to your technology toolbox.
