The ultimate winners from use of Quality Built’s QB Builder Link® are property owners
Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
Quality Built, LLC (Quality Built), the country’s leading provider of third-party construction quality assurance and inspection management services, announces that ProTec Building Services (ProTec) has selected Quality Built’s proprietary software platform to manage ProTec’s property inspection and maintenance services.
ProTec is a national leader in providing property maintenance services to extend life expectancies of properties and their building systems and to reduce hazardous property conditions. While several companies provide on-going routine property maintenance services, ProTec distinguishes itself as the premier provider of comprehensive and systematic property inspection and maintenance programs. Paul Mayeski, (Manager of Developer Services) for ProTec recently remarked, “As a company, our core business is to provide on-going property maintenance services through regularly-scheduled site visits. For years, owners of commercial buildings and Property Managers representing Homeowner Associations simply had a crew who fixed things when someone told them they were broken. They lacked sophisticated and comprehensive systems for implementing and controlling repairs and, in particular, undertaking preventive maintenance programs to reduce costs and extend building life expectancies. This lack of preventive and predictive maintenance provided us with our unique business opportunity and today we are a leader in delivering property maintenance solutions for commercial buildings and Homeowner Associations.”
Mayeski continued, “Our numerous inspection and preventive maintenance programs and protocols were largely developed on paper and we were generating volumes of building and inspection data without a viable software program to manage, control and audit the inspections and data that we were collecting. We always knew that with the proper software and I.T. platform, we would be able to more effectively and more efficiently manage and utilize the building data and information that we were collecting. Quality Built’s proprietary software and I.T. platform, QB Link, provided a solution to our paper-only systems.”
Growing from it’s origins as a traditional inspection company conducting inspections of new residential construction, Quality Built has quickly emerged as the leader in the new field of inspection management and information audit and utilization. Gary H. Elzweig, Managing Partner and Chief Engineer of Quality Built and founder of several successful engineering companies, including PIECO and Capri Engineering, stated “Quality Built’s vision of the future was unobstructed, traditional inspection businesses would be eclipsed by those companies that provide an advanced I.T. software and hardware platform that creates an ability to control inspections and to collect, store and analyze the data collected from volumes of inspections. Quality Built’s services and capabilities fit squarely with the needs of such an excellent company as ProTec that needs to objectively collect, store and utilize building maintenance inspection data.”
Beth Michaelis, President of Quality Built said, “When ProTec described their needs for property maintenance services they are providing and the information they are collecting, we instantly knew that QB Builder Link® was the I.T. software and hardware solution for their needs. We quickly made some minor adjustments to Quality Built’s IT software and hardware platforms to solve ProTec’s challenges. Virtually overnight Quality Built has been able to meet ProTec’s needs and today ProTec has transparent and sophisticated tools to collect, audit and analyze property maintenance information and data.”
“The ultimate winner from use of Quality Built’s QB Builder Link® are the property owners we work for,” said Paul Mayeski. “We are going to now, more than ever before, deliver them cost efficient, credible and validated property maintenance information and with this data we will be able to extend the life of properties and their building systems which will provide them with tremendous cost savings. This is a triple win scenario, a win for us, a win for Quality Built and a win for the property owners that will engage us to implement property maintenance programs. The cost savings, especially when considering the extended life expectancies of properties and their systems, will be huge for those property owners that are ProTec customers.”
