Why streamline your building material ordering process?
Streamlining your business removes wasteful or redundant steps to improve efficiency and create a scalable business model. This typically involves outsourcing organizational activities, like outsourcing the supply and distribution of all your building materials like roofing, bricks, S.A.Pine, or cement.
In business, time is money, so a small business achieves several financial and operational advantages from streamlined operations. You will attract more customers through a faster build, drive higher revenue and compete effectively all while reducing your cost base.
Online Building offers clients a way to streamline their ordering processes. Anton Sparks, CEO of Online Building discusses some of the reasons why they offer this unique option to their customers.
Better Financial Performance
Imagine how much time you have to spend on the phone or driving around to find all the materials you need for your builds like flooring, pavers, or even cladding. By going to one person, at one company, you avoid wasting time which translates into money. Your orders will be processed faster, and your materials will arrive faster. In this way, you can turn around your build quicker making your operation much more efficient and make you more attractive to new customers. High revenue and low costs mean improved profitability and cash flow – a scalable business model.
Faster Response Times
A streamlined operation leads to faster response times. A building company with a streamlined process is better able to modify production on the fly to satisfy a customer while maintaining profitability. Response times on special orders improve with streamlined operations as well.
If you want to have a competitive edge over your competitors streamlining processes and aggregating your buying is necessary. A company with scale (which buys bigger volumes) and a streamlined purchasing process has a significant advantage over other construction companies.
If you really want to be competitive, make a point to do fewer things. You can do this by cutting your to-do list in half, allowing you to concentrate only on your strength (which is building) and collaborating with experts in the other areas such as the supply and distribution of material.
