Buildxact is expanding its services into New Zealand’s $13b residential construction market. With established customers such as renovation franchise Smith & Sons, and rapidly increasing demand in the region, it’s a natural step for the company.
Buildxact’s CEO, David Murray, is confident that it is the right time to establish a presence in that market. “The Buildxact integrated estimating and job management solution is already being used by builders in the New Zealand construction sector. Increasing our investment and expanding our operation there is a logical next step in the company’s growth. The number of enquiries coming in has increased dramatically over the past six months.”
Recent partner events with cloud accounting software providers Xero and MYOB showed strong interest from the large number of NZ accountants and bookkeepers that attended Xerocon 2018, and MYOB Partner Connect in Queenstown. With the accounting industry moving towards a greater focus on advisory services, they are now actively looking to help their construction clients find a business management solution that integrates with their accounting software.
“The partner community is a key factor in our growth strategy into the NZ market and the positive signs are already there. Both partners and their construction clients really value Buildxact’s simplicity and ease-of-use, as well as the fact that estimating, quoting and jobs can all be managed in the one place,” commented David Murray. “We’re unique in that combination of functionality and ease of use, and what we have to offer will make a huge difference to the way the residential construction industry in New Zealand does business.”
