Jetbuilt Launches International Version of AV Estimating Software


Jetbuilt, a provider of web-based AV estimation and proposal software, has released the international version of its software.

Jetbuilt launched the US version in June 2015 and, the company says international integrators soon saw the benefits of the web-based, platform agnostic AV proposal software, which also works on MacOS. The international version includes currency options, default tax rates by country and the ability to label the tax fields (VAT, sales tax, labor tax, etc.).  It uses the Queen’s English and includes products used in the global market. Over 25% of JetBuilt’s current customer base is now international dealers.

The Jetbuilt AV proposal and estimating software works on either a Mac or PC and includes a robust database of products that are updated by the Jetbuilt team as manufacturers release new products. Integrated dealer pricing is managed via manufacturer authentication, by directly adding prices to a project, or uploading price sheets to Jetbuilt for free data entry to the dealer account. Integrators can include their own labor and design rates which the software then recalls for subsequent proposals. Users can bundle their go-to systems and packages and drop them into future projects with one step.

Additional features include automated location-based sales tax, integration with QuickBooks, budget tracking, team collaboration and auto data fill-ins. The custom presentation tools allow dealers to create an elegant, professional customer proposals using simple drag-and-drop technology.

“Part of our ethos is listening to our customers and giving them the tools they need to make their jobs easier. Our dealers are now spending 15 minutes to create a proposal that used to take three to four hours,” said Paul Dexter, founder and designer of Jetbuilt. “Our users receive free updates every single week based on dealer input. The international version of the software is an evolution that our dealers requested. Jetbuilt’s mission is for dealers to spend less time building proposals and more time making money.”

Jetbuilt features a dashboard to track their pipeline, clients, proposal status and budgeting which allows integrators to track profits and margins from each project. Additionally, Jetbuilt allows collaboration and access to team member’s progress, whether they’re in the adjacent cubicle or across the country.
