Here’s a little more information on how
your Building Product Platform works

CONTROLLED PLATFORM ENVIRONMENT
We place your digital sales literature on our Controlled Building Product Platform. That means several things:
• Your Suppliers digital materials never leave our platform. We simply provide each Dealer or Contractor with a their own branded platform channel … a subset of our entire Platform Network. All content must be relevant to our residential construction industry.
• This helps protect everyone’s copyrights, trademarks, trade names, content and images.
• Nobody, including Dealers and Contractors, can post directly to the Platform. This means we control content to ensure the safeguards that nobody can post any unprofessional or ill-words. Additionally, the Platform does not include big-boxes (Home Depot, Lowe’s, Menards). Plus, no Dealer can advertise ‘installation’ as it would be considered competing advertising against Contractors.
• Because we control all content within the Platform Network, that means your Suppliers can add, edit or delete any content across the entire Network in real-time, per our schedule. This way, buyers are always looking at your most current marketing materials.
• A Dealers Platform displays only their Suppliers products sales literature.
• A Contractors Platform displays the sales literature of the entire industry. This has several benefits:

FOR MANUFACTURERS, DISTRIBUTORS & DEALERS: The primary benefit is to have all other residential tradesmen carrying around your products sales literature 24/7. Not only would each Manufacturer, Distributor and Dealer benefit from exponentially raising product awareness with guys who may not normally purchase from them, but all of their consumer buyers will also see you and your products. Less we forget, a homeowner who needs a furnace serviced this winter, may also be planning a spring re-roof or major addition project. Additionally, even as big as the largest Dealers are regarding the number of locations they have, there still are far more guys buying from competitors and big-boxes of which they can target/promote to using the Platform.

FOR CONTRACTORS: As most contracting companies (i.e. home builders, remodelers, general contractors, and specialty trades) provide multiple services to their clients, they and their customers expect to see building products from many different categories to appear more credible and aligned with the industry. They further need the pocket resource to know how other trade products interact and install around them. Contractors can however, specify specific products and/or Dealers as their ‘preferred’ by using Product Portfolio’s.
