CRM for Building and Construction

Job booking diary and appointment schedule software

The team of developers at AutoVu Solutions has been growing our platform for over a decade, so we know what it means to build something from the ground up. During that time, we’ve worked closely with companies that design and build new homes, those that work on trade premises, and many others. We’ve also supplied comprehensive solutions to businesses that maintain properties once they’re built. Our platform offers advanced Field Service Management, meaning your team’s workflow is always optimised and within your control.

Whether you want to leverage the full complement of AutoVu features straight out of the box, or pick and choose the specific modules that will help your building business, the system will work for you. Some building and construction companies want to focus on lead generation, others prefer to focus in the actual field work – and many more do a blend of both.

Why AutoVuSolutions

As we have grown our platform, we’ve spent time with many businesses types – including the building trade. This has taught us a lot about what you need (and what you don’t). It was this type of thinking that led to the development of our modular structure, as well as the inclusion of custom widgets and plug-ins, all of which can be tailored to your building or construction company.

Easy to Create and Track

With AutoVu you can create purchase orders linked to individual building projects. Whether this is a product purchase, or parts required to rectify a problem, every purchase order can be tracked back to its origin.

Delivery and courier details can be specified with a reference number for easy searching on their respective order/details. This makes finding records in AutoVu a simple task when external companies specify their own reference numbers.

Track each stage of a purchase order from initial purchase date to the due date and subsequent delivery date. Clear indicators show the status of a purchase order with the ability to record Drawing Approval where these have been issued.
