Jetbuilt is making AV estimating and proposal building easier and more portable with the introduction of the Jetbuilt iPad app. The new iPad app from Jetbuilt, set to launch at CEDIA 2016, will be available free for Jetbuilt users.
Jetbuilt’s iPad app was designed as a companion product that focuses directly on the client by helping integrators build a project alongside their client. Users can create a new project quickly, with a minimal number of fields, to keep things moving fast. Once projects are created, it’s simple to assign rooms and systems from a roster of user defaults or custom fields. Then items or assemblies can be dragged into any room in the project. By creating ‘Bundles’ and ‘Favorites,’ the cost, shipping and labor values are already attached to the item and calculated, allowing clients to view their project with the total cost displayed. Users can click on a room or system to "Mute" it and remove the pricing, providing the client a transparent way to select the features they want within the budget they like.
Once a project is created to the client’s liking, they can sign to buy, allowing them to buy the project on the spot or the user can email the proposal to the client. Meanwhile, each project created with Jetbuilt’s iPad app is instantly available to those back at the office, allowing them to contribute to projects in real-time.
“We know our users are increasingly relying on their iPads for their day-to-day business,” said Paul Dexter, founder and chief executive officer for Jetbuilt. “We wanted to ensure that we can deliver a fast client consultation solution which pairs with the power of Jetbuilt in the office. We think our users are truly going to like the latest tool we have to offer and we invite those that are unfamiliar with our software to give it a try.”
Additionally, Jetbuilt users can take photos of the project and upload them in real-time, where they will be placed into Jetbuilt’s ‘Asset’ portal. Users can simply use the iPad app on a consultation to take project photos and populate various items discussed and finish the proposal later through the web software. While Jetbuilt is built for projects of all sizes, the iPad app was designed for small to medium residential projects and small commercial projects, such as restaurants and retails.
