Unit of Measure intelligence, a Plexxis Software Drywall ERP feature that automates quantity conversion, is enabling Drywallers to get precise cost data, produce trusted reports, quickly identify problems and drastically improve skills.
Plexxis Software is excited to report that drywall contractors using a single platform drywall ERP, that includes drywall construction estimating software, are evolving far beyond less advanced contractors. The critical component to this evolution is ‘Unit of Measure intelligence’, a software feature that automates quantity conversion and that is ONLY possible on ‘single platform’ ERP systems.
Jason Fraser, Senior Systems Developer for Plexxis explains, “An example of how Unit of Measure intelligence (U.O.M. i) works is when a material is estimated in square feet, but purchased in bundles or skids, and then financials are reported in yet another unit of measure, yet the paperwork at each stage is 100% accurate as the conversions are fully automated… U.O.M.i eliminates costly errors that occur when working with multiple systems. While numbers in segregated system can be imported/exported quite easily, the systems do not know what the numbers mean, thus, errors can occur and time and money are lost.”
Chad Pearson, Business Developer for Plexxis adds, “Customers using the Drywall ERP with U.O.M.i have been retaining more profit with less effort each year while contractors using old technology are working harder to make less money. One customer who has been using the Plexxis Drywall ERP for over 10 years has tripled their revenue and doubled their profit margins while reducing their internal staff from 12 people to just 4. In Ontario, almost all of the top drywall companies have migrated to the Plexxis Drywall ERP…The facts should not be ignored…those who do not embrace technology may find themselves out of business sooner then later.”
Based on these and other trends, Plexxis predicts that single system platforms with U.O.M.i will become an absolute necessity within 5 years as the economy no longer tolerates waste and customer expectations are forever rising. This technology elevates performance to a level that keeps contractors ahead of competitors AND increasing customer expectations.
Plexxis invites all drywall/interior systems contractors to learn how the Plexxis Drywall ERP, which includes WinBID construction estimating software and Digital TAKE-OFF will maximize profit and efficiency.
