HOVER has forged new partnerships with ABC Supply and Beacon Building Products, enabling contractors to place orders with the roofing distributors from within the HOVER platform with Direct Ordering.
Using precise measurements created with HOVER's 3D model, Direct Ordering calculates material quantities, instantly prepares material lists for roofing products, and places the order with their distributor. The automated ordering process takes into account a contractor's unique pricing and installation preferences. It offers a single, connected digital experience, eliminating the need for manual entry or separate ordering. HOVER's Direct Ordering streamlines and digitizes the process for ordering materials.
Supply-chain-related delays, increasing homeowner demand for roofing renovation and repair, and the ever-present need for cost-savings efficiencies have put pressure on exterior home improvement contractors over the last few years. Their ability to calculate and order the exact quantities of roofing materials they need directly from trusted suppliers through HOVER's Direct Ordering tool means jobs can be completed more quickly, with more savings and allows greater earning potential through the number of jobs a contractor can do.
"We're thrilled to partner with HOVER to give contractors a digital option for ordering roofing materials," said Mike Jost, ABC Supply COO. "Our customers often rely on us to determine the quantity of supplies needed for a project, and having HOVER's precise measurements automatically connected to the order means we deliver exactly what is needed more efficiently."
"We're excited to partner with HOVER to allow contractors to place orders directly through the platform," said Jamie Samide, vice president of marketing at Beacon. "We've supported roofing contractors for nearly 100 years, getting them the best supplies right on time. The addition of HOVER's precise measurements automatically connected to the order is another service innovation helping our customers build more."
The ability to place orders with ABC Supply and Beacon from within HOVER will become available later this year.
