Revolutionizing Drywall Materials Management: StructShare's Latest Updates

For drywall contractors, efficient management of materials and costs is key to success. Recognizing this, StructShare is thrilled to unveil a transformative update, crafted specifically to meet the unique needs of our drywall clients.

The Challenge of Unit Conversion in Drywall Projects

Traditionally, drywall contractors faced a unique challenge: managing materials priced in square feet but ordered and delivered in sheets. This discrepancy between the unit of pricing and the unit of counting has long been a source of confusion and inefficiency.

 

StructShare's Solution: Clarity and Efficiency

We listened to our customers’ feedback, and in response, we're rolling out new features designed to bridge this gap:

  • Enhanced Unit Conversion: Our system now seamlessly converts and displays values across all user interfaces – foreman, purchasing, and supplier – ensuring everyone is on the same page.
  • Updated Column Names in BOM/ItemDB: To make data more clear and explicit, we've renamed key columns in the Bill of Materials and Item Database, making it easier to understand and use.
  • Improved Cost Calculations: The enhancements include fixing the calculation of costs in the BOM, ensuring that the conversion is factored in for accurate pricing.
  • Visibility Across Flows: From item selection to billing confirmation, both units and values are now clearly displayed, simplifying the entire procurement process.

Why This Matters for Drywall Contractors

These updates mean drywall contractors can now handle projects more efficiently, with a system that understands and adapts to the industry's unique requirements.
 
  • Ease of Communication: Clear understanding between field requests and supplier orders.

  • Accurate Cost Tracking: Budgets and expenses are calculated more accurately.

  • Streamlined Procurement: Simplifies the ordering and delivery process, aligning it with how drywall contractors work.
