Technology Tackles Material Delays with Same Day Delivery, Helps Combat Skyrocketing Lumber Prices & More
TOOLBX, an all-in-one construction material procurement platform for residential and commercial contractors that delivers materials directly to the jobsite the same day they are ordered while providing price transparency and bulk buying solutions, officially launches in Ottawa, Ontario, recently.
The Canadian company is expanding from Toronto to Ottawa as it is one of the country’s fastest growing cities that boasts a $2B home improvement market with thousands of busy contractors that are stretched to the limit.
“TOOLBX is an essential tech platform purposely designed for builders. It streamlines project purchasing while also getting them materials fast so they can stop wasting time on supply runs and focus on building,” said Ottawa-born homebuilder and TOOLBX Ottawa city manager, Harrison da Costa. “We’re helping them save time and money and that’s good news for Ottawa homeowners too.”
TOOLBX is available on mobile or desktop and brings much-needed innovation to the construction industry. Founded by a homebuilder, TOOLBX digitizes and simplifies the notoriously time consuming and paper-driven procurement of construction materials that has become even more challenging with the pandemic. It also empowers small businesses to bring their brick and mortar inventory online and offer same day delivery.
At a time when costs of essential building materials like lumber, drywall and insulation are skyrocketing, TOOLBX Pro provides bulk buying discounts on larger orders. Furthermore, with a skilled labor shortage, the technology keeps skilled tradespeople on the job and out of line ups or waiting days for curbside pickup.
TOOLBX takes care of a builder’s back office. It enables the seamless management of spend across jobsites and crews, as well as provides real-time tracking of orders. Also, the digitization of receipts keeps sales slips from piling up in work trucks. This makes payments and expenses easy to track so contractors can spend less time on accounting and invoice clients quickly.
