Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 7, 2008
Builder Purchasing Services (BPS) brings cost and time savings as well as their valuable management tools to Austin, Texas custom and multifamily residential builders.
Marshall Durrett, President of Durrett Interests in Austin, says, "The team at Builder Purchasing Services has gone above and beyond the call of duty as a purchasing administration firm in handling the entire bidding process for us on a very complex custom home. Bidding was completed in less than two (2) weeks and various architectural changes from the owner were thrown into the mix during the bidding period. I would like to say that this quick turn-around could not have been managed without their systems and persistence in making things run smoothly. They were a true team player and were clearly motivated to help us with the project. We will definitely continue to use BPS."
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 the upgrades, licensing and maintenance of those systems, and also for the builders that need to reduce the overhead of their purchasing personnel. 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.
Glenn Burgess, President and CEO of Burgess Construction Consultants Inc., headquartered in Plano, has stated, "Builders throughout the country looking to keep a close eye on their budgets without getting caught up in the minutia of purchasing administration, as well as having their bidding conducted in a concise and coordinated manner, now have a unique and valuable resource to utilize that will reduce the costs of internal systems and personnel."
BPS has created a full service purchasing department for the building industry. Administrative services offered to the builder include Buyout Process (BPS securely puts the builders plans, scopes of work, specifications and instructions to bidders out over the internet and receives bids back in spreadsheet form for the builder to review), 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 also tracks all trade's insurance as well as any manufacturer's rebates for the project.
Using BPS lets the builder concentrate on what they do best…build.
