By BUILDER Magazine Staff. BuildLinks, a Web-based tool that manages scheduling, options selection, and change orders for builders has nearly doubled its user base in the past few months to more than 2,500 starts. The company points to an enhanced project scheduler and wireless access to BuildLinks as contributing to its recent success.

"BuildLinks has always been focused on solving the 'pain points' of the local and custom-home builders," says C.G. "Chip" Gillooly, the company's president and CEO. "The recent $2 million investment [by Southeast Interactive] into our company let us accelerate the introduction of these new BuildLinks modules, and we are very pleased by the market response."
