Jetbuilt launched the US version of its web-based AV proposal software in June 2015 at InfoComm. Integrators from Africa, South America, Canada, the UK and other locations gravitated to the Jetbuilt solution for easy, accurate proposals with elegant presentations. Jetbuilt is now launching an international version that includes currency options, default tax rates by country and the ability to label the tax fields (VAT, sales tax, labor tax, etc.). It uses the Queen’s English and includes products used in the global market. Over 25 percent of Jetbuilt’s current customer base is now international dealers.
Jetbuilt’s concept is to keep everything moving forward, never requiring the user to go to the ‘basement’ of the application to setup items or clients in advance. Anything can be added on the fly while estimating a project. The Jetbuilt AV proposal and estimating software works on either a Mac or PC and includes a robust database of products that are updated by the Jetbuilt team as manufacturers release new products. Integrated dealer pricing is managed via manufacturer authentication, by directly adding prices to a project, or uploading price sheets to Jetbuilt for free data entry to the dealer account. Integrators can include their own labor and design rates which the software then recalls for subsequent proposals. Users can bundle their go-to systems and packages and drop them into future projects with one step. Additional features include automated location-based sales tax, integration with QuickBooks, budget tracking, team collaboration and auto data fill-ins. The custom presentation tools allow dealers to create an elegant, professional customer proposals using drag-and-drop technology.
Jetbuilt features a dashboard to track their pipeline, clients, proposal status and budgeting which allows integrators to track profits and margins from each project. Additionally, Jetbuilt allows collaboration and access to team member’s progress, whether they’re in the adjacent cubicle or across the country. More details are here.
