Littleton, CO (PRWEB) August 6, 2008
Builder Purchasing Services (BPS) answers the call of the nation's builders to cut overhead costs yet gain better cost management tools.
BPS was formed in 2008 as an answer for builders without automated purchasing systems, antiquated systems or those not wanting to continue to pay for upgrades and maintenance, and also for the builders that need to reduce the overhead of their purchasing personnel. According to Founder Mark A. Henderson, "I was amazed at the number of builders I have come across in the last few years that have struggled with purchasing. There are builders that have no automated systems, no standardization of internal processes and procedures and quite frankly, have no idea of where they stand cost wise on a given unit or project." BPS provides the tools for a builder to show how they are performing in regards to their budgets per unit and project as well as increasing efficiency and profitability while saving money on administrative salaries and benefits. This provides assurances to the builder and their financiers and is a benefit in both good and bad economic times.
Andy Marchase, President of Construction Loans with Citywide Banks, has said, "BPS offers builders a unique and valuable service which enables them to manage costs and focus their time on managing their core business."
BPS has formed an alliance with BuilderMT, a leader in software technology solutions, to create a full service purchasing department for the building industry. Administrative services offered to the builder include Buyout Process, Material Specification documentation, Scopes of Work by trade and municipality, Purchase Order (PO) Release, PO Approval, and check cutting for distribution to the builder's Trade Partners. The systems implemented by BPS account for any changes the builder may need during construction, including Variance PO's, Measurement PO's, Upgrade PO's and Contract Changes. All changes are immediately followed by Real Time reporting of budgets by unit and/or project via email to the Builder and any other entity the Builder would like informed of their current status.
BPS introduced their technology at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference held in June, 2008. Scott Sinelli, Vice President of Operations for Village Homes of Colorado: "This is the most innovative service presented at the show this year. This service will change the industry and how many builders handle day to day operations."
