Conventionally, builders and renovators keep paper copies of receipts and documents. Spreadsheets are
by builders to help them track expenses and create budget estimates. There are also builders that keep
documents and photos for future references. Estimating project completion time is usually highly
dependent on just
builder’s expertise and it is especially difficult to associate project delays with costs. To get
the project expenses, frequently many documents need to be sent back and forth to the project owner by
Reporting and documenting projects is typically limited to the mandatory inspection reports. All these
add burden to the busy schedule of builders.
Nexobuild software has been developed based on a research performed on 100s of projects to help home
successfully deliver their project on-time and on-budget without sacrificing the quality of the job.
- Nexobuild is embedded in the residential home building Intelligence. For example, when you create a
Nexobuild, by default 100s of standard hierarchal categories and tasks would be provided for you to
start with in an easy way to understand and communicate. The majority of a project’s data will be
these categories and tasks making them organized and easily searchable. Nexobuild also calculates loan
advance as well as partners contributions.
Builders and renovators can easily collaborate and communicate with internal and external team members
within the application. For example, a picture taken on-site can be instantly shared with head office,
subcontractors and/or owners. Defining access for your team members keeps them up to date on various
the project hence eliminating unnecessary communications.
Expense tracking in Nexobuild is more efficient than a spreadsheet. Nexobuild tracks expenses accrued
for each task and warns users when they are exceeding the original task budget. Builders know at any
total amount of paid taxes as well as the rebatable amount to be claimed. Receipts and proof of
payments will be
attached to each expense.
Nexobuild users are home builders, not tech savvy IT professionals. Even though it is a feature rich
application, it presents all its features in a simple user interface to builders, helping them find
they need without unnecessarily overwhelming them with various types of information.
The On-cloud nature of Nexobuild makes it device independent and safe. So if you and your team members
mobile device in your pocket with internet access, you have all of your projects’ data as well and you
never worry about losing them. Accessibility becomes exponentially beneficial as the project size and
If you are one of the many house builders who like keeping project files in folders, you can do so in
but instead of folders you would have the ability to attach them to the exact entity (such as
expense, budget, contribution….) that they belong. This eliminates the need to browse hundreds of
files to find
a particular file. For example, pictures of concrete framing for the 888 West 16th project that you
last year or a contract you signed with roofing company for the 564 Cordova St.
Conventionally, builders don’t schedule a single home building project. Reason being, to get involved
project scheduling requires a steep learning curve and extensive software such as MS Project or
of which is designed to the scope of a single family home project. Nexobuild applies concepts of large
construction project and simplifies them to suite a small team to understand and follow. This way
from early on (and as project advances) which tasks are potentially on critical path and which ones on
Builders usually log a diary of projects which can be used as a means to document it as well as a
reference for future builds. Reports in Nexobuild are a shared repository of daily logs, inspection
notes to keep in mind and snapshots of what happened when and why. And as always, they are organized
to each task and categories and can be found in a few seconds.
The Nexobuild application has put together various tools builders and renovators needs into one package
