Drywall contractors can generate accurate quotes and material lists on the fly thanks to a new app offered by CertainTeed Gypsum. The easy-to-use Third Arm Quotes tool designed by drywall contractors cuts the time it takes to estimate a job in half, while automatically filing the job information so it is ready when and where it is needed. This means drywallers can now quote more jobs and can more easily track current jobs.
The new app works with all iOS devices and is available from iTunes. Once downloaded, the digital quote manager can take a drywall contractor easily and quickly through each step of the job management process. It was created by Canadian drywaller Pete Wilson, who developed the app to streamline his business.
“I don’t have to have my iPad with me all the time. This means if I am awarded a job onsite, I can open the app right then and there in my phone, connect with my suppliers, and start the job the next day,” says Wilson.
The customizable digital quote manager eliminates the need for contractors to go back to the office to push paperwork for quotes and material lists. Drywall pros can create appointments as well as upload customer details including name, phone number, jobsite address, and even driving directions to the jobsite. The tool also creates materials list, which can be emailed to suppliers along with specific delivery instructions. The app can also help manage subcontractor schedules. In addition, the program utilizes iCloud technology so data entered into the app can be accessed across multiple devices.
CertainTeed customers are invited to try the app at no charge for 30 days. Click here to learn more.
