Leaders of Business Pilot have announced a new partnership with Paradigm Vendo, a home improvement contractor sales app based in the US. The news comes ahead of the Business Pilot team’s exhibition presence at GlassBuild America, a trade show that begins tomorrow (31 October) and ends on Thursday (2 November), in Atlanta.
The two digital business and sales management platforms are now seamlessly integrated via an API, to remove double entry input and to help improve business efficiency. Customer details, lead information and sales appointments entered into the Business Pilot system can be pulled through to the Paradigm Vendo platform ready for quoting and selling jobs virtually or in the home, according to Business Pilot’s representatives.
Quote and sales information from Paradigm Vendo is then fed back to Business Pilot where contracts, finance, installation dates, purchase orders and stock can be managed. The software also collates live data into personalised dashboards, to help contractors manage their business more efficiently and effectively, they added.
“We’re excited to be taking Business Pilot to contractors in the US,” said Ryan Schofield, technical director at Business Pilot. “Having an API with Paradigm Vendo ready-built is a perfect way to launch our offer at GlassBuild America.
“We’ve had incredible success with APIs in the UK, each one built to make life easier for British installers. We are taking the same approach as we take Business Pilot to the US. Paradigm Vendo is one of the leading sales apps for American home improvement and renovation contractors, which is why we were so keen to develop this API and make them our first US partner.”
Mike Storck, Paradigm Vendo’s product director, added: “Paradigm continually looks for efficient and innovative ways to help home improvement contractors get their jobs done more efficiently and effectively. The combination of BP’s intuitive CRM and Paradigm Vendo’s end-to-end selling technology streamlines the selling process and helps close more deals.”
The Business Pilot team is to be based at Booth 4004 at GlassBuild America, offering a free demo of the software. For more information about Business Pilot, visit the company’s website.
