Revolutionizing MEP Procurement: StructShare’s Out-of-the-Box Catalog

This release is a testament to our commitment to staying ahead in the industry. By continuously developing, StructShare demonstrates our understanding of the evolving needs of construction professionals. For MEP trade contractors and construction professionals, this represents more than just a new tool – it’s a doorway to a new era in procurement efficiency.

StructShare's Game-Changing Move for MEP Contractors

The construction industry, particularly the Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) sector, is on the cusp of a significant transformation. Known for our trailblazing approach in procurement and materials management, we recently announced the launch of our "Out-of-the-Box" catalog specifically for the unique needs of MEP trade contractors. This launch is not just an addition, it's a game changer.

The "Out-of-the-Box" catalog offers an easy-to-navigate catalog with an extensive product range, broken into common categories, boasting hundreds of thousands of items specifically selected. This vast collection provides a one-stop resource for MEP professionals, facilitating the quick procurement of a wide array of materials required for diverse projects.

A standout feature of the catalog is its customizable nature, allowing an unprecedented level of flexibility and personalization for each company, as well as its field-first approach, recognizing the dynamic and mobile nature of contractor work. This approach ensures that contractors have on-site access to the catalog, enabling easy search and prompt access to products, which ultimately results in seamless adoption without significant disruptions to their current operations.

"We recognize the uniqueness of every contracting business, and our customizable catalog is designed to reflect that.”

— Or Lakritz, Co-founder

 

Key features of the new solution include:

• Infinite categories and subcategories with images
• Availability for both for the field teams and office teams to easily search for items to purchase
• Ability for contractors to add, edit, or remove categories and items in the catalog, aligning it precisely with their project requirements and preferences.
• Enabling users to change names and add industry-specific slang, keywords, and item codes. This customization ensures that the catalog resonates with the users’ language and enhances ease of use.
• Allowing for the addition of items “on-the-go” from both the field and the office. This feature is essential for keeping the catalog up-to-date and reflective of real-time needs.

"We are dedicated to addressing the unique challenges faced by our MEP partners. This catalog is a crucial step in that direction," says Or Lakritz, CEO of StructShare. "We recognize the uniqueness of every contracting business, and our customizable catalog is designed to reflect that. It empowers our clients to mold the software to their specific needs, enhancing both efficiency and user experience."

 “From the beginning we knew this was gonna be easier... [StructShare] saves everyone involved time and money so we can focus on doing our best work and growing our business.”
-Shaya Weinberger, Office Program Manager at Best Mechanical Plumbing

 

Why the Out-of-the-Box Catalog Matters

  • Time is Money: For MEP contractors, time spent on sourcing and procuring materials is time away from the job site. The catalog’s extensive library of pre-grouped MEP components, including vital elements like electrical, plumbing, and HVAC components, means faster and more efficient procurement.
  • Precision in Pricing: In an industry where budget overruns can be disastrous, StructShare's catalog comes with integrated, up-to-date pricing information. This feature is critical for contractors to create accurate project estimates and manage budgets effectively.
  • Collaboration Made Easy: One of the standout features of this catalog is its ability to foster seamless collaboration among project stakeholders. Whether it's a field foreman, a project manager, or accounts payable – everyone can stay on the same page.
  • Tailored to Your Needs: Recognizing the diverse nature of MEP projects, the catalog allows for customization. Contractors can tweak components and create project-specific templates, ensuring that the tool adapts to the project, not the other way around.
