A Rockford-based software company, JobFLEX
, has been recognized by TSheets
for developing one of the top 10 construction apps of 2016.
The app, designed for the construction industry and sales professionals to do on-site estimates by giving easy access to material lists and pricing, even without Wi-Fi, was named the “best app for estimates and bids.”
Kim Phillipi, founder and CEO, says the construction industry has lagged behind using technology, especially in the field. The company’s new app focuses on speeding up the estimating process. “The frustrations were the ability to deliver estimates in a timely manner,” he says. “Consumers are more demanding and expect everything faster and to be delivered online and over their phone or tablets.”
Philipi says that, with his app, estimates can easily be delivered within 24 hours. He says in the past, this might have taken a month or more.
JobFLEX, which was founded in 2009, has a 12-person team and is currently looking to add more developers to its staff. Besides designing software, the company also has a construction division, Greenfit Homes.
Since launching in beta last year, the the app has had more than 3,000 downloads, routinely lands on "best of lists" and is being used by more than 400 contractors.
