TAMKO Building Products LLC Among First to Utilize Renoworks Platform to Deliver On-Demand Roof Measurements and 3D Models without a Home Visit
New solution provides TAMKO dealers and contractors with remote sales tool to measure, design, and close roofing jobs with homeowners, all from an online platform
CALGARY, ALBERTA, April 9, 2020 — Renoworks Software Inc. (TSXV:RW) (“Renoworks”) is proud to announce that its remote measurement and 3D model technology is now being used by nationwide roofing manufacturer, TAMKO Building Products LLC (“TAMKO”), and TAMKO’s expanding network of roofers, contractors, and dealers to address the pressing challenges facing the roofing industry today.
This technology integrates seamlessly into the existing TAMKO Shingle Styles visualizer and is powered by the Renoworks Platform.
The Renoworks Platform unifies photorealistic design visualizations, 3D interactive models, and precise roofing measurements (powered by EagleView®) in a single project-planning interface that can be digitally shared between a contractor, dealer, and the homeowner, eliminating the need for in-person sales visits.
Combined with TAMKO’s extensive offering of roofing products, this winning combination will provide a much-needed virtual sales tool to TAMKO customers and give homeowners the confidence they need to purchase a new TAMKO roof without needing to leave the home or meet the contractor in-person.
A Virtual & Effortless Roof Estimation Process
With the global health risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and social distancing in effect, homeowners are reluctant to book in-person sales meetings with roofers. This has caused a disruption in traditional methods of the sales process as roofers can no longer take on-site measurements or photos of the home for quoting and estimating, adding difficulty to securing the bid.
This also poses a challenge for homeowners who want to obtain quotes, choose the right contractor, and decide on roofing product and color options while ensuring that they and their families are safe throughout the process.
The Renoworks remote measurement and design solution solves this problem by enabling customers to order realistic roof visualizations, 3D models, and accurate roof measurement reports. Information includes roof dimensions, areas, slopes, roof squares, and other vital information, all from the TAMKO Shingle Styles visualizer, and helps enable a contact-free process for design, estimation, and bidding.
The platform’s design capabilities will also help TAMKO’s network of roofers and contractors set better expectations with homeowners, resulting in a reduction of change requests and an increase in buyer confidence.
Homeowners can also take advantage of the platform to understand and control more of their renovation process before proceeding to find contractors to complete their roofing projects.
“TAMKO is always looking for ways to continuously improve the homeowner experience and help roofers and contractors bring more value and quality to homeowners,” said Stephen McNally, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for TAMKO. “Renoworks provides a critical technology that TAMKO can put in the hands of roofers and dealers to help homeowners plan their roofing projects. In the current global environment where social distancing has become a necessity, this timely solution also provides a virtual sales tool that facilitates a ‘touchless’ roof replacement bidding process.”
“We see the Renoworks Platform with our integrated remote measurement and 3D visualization technology as a portal to a larger ecosystem for our manufacturer clients,” said Doug Vickerson, CEO of Renoworks. “As a tool for improving remote workflow, it will help the manufacturer’s network of contractors engage with better qualified and project-ready homeowners. As a solution built on our evolving Renoworks platform, it will leverage all our ongoing work in visualization and data, which will provide new opportunities and innovative workflows for the industry now and in the future. We are proud to help enable this level of remote work for TAMKO’s customers and look forward to our growth together.”
