As we start to settle into 2019, we take a look back into what 2018 had in store for Eque2. You can find out about some of the highlights below:
Strength in Numbers: Over 200 New Customers Welcomed
Following a strong performance in 2017, we are proud to report another double-digit period of revenue growth in 2018 where we have once again added over 200 new companies across our portfolio of construction specific software solutions. We are constantly welcoming new customers with short features in our news section – you can see more here.
Development of Modern Technology: Construct Express Cloud
We are pleased to provide the first cloud-based job costing system for the construction industry; Construct Express Cloud. The software allows customers to manage all their construction-specific processes in a system specifically built for the industry, alongside Sage Accounts whilst alleviating the need to invest in expensive servers of hardware. Customers are able to access the software from a web browser on a PC or laptop – all you need is a standard internet connection.
New Solutions: ServiceStream
In 2018, we launched a service management software called ServiceStream which integrates with our Construct for Sage 50 Accounts solution helping you manage the administration of planned or reactive maintenance. ServiceStream allows you to capture job details, manage the scheduling of engineers, report on service level agreements and ensure your customers can see the status of their jobs at any point in time. So far, we have seen high demand for this solution and are pleased to add this offering to our product portfolio to our current and prospective customers.
Exclusive Partnerships: EValuate + Laxton’s Priced Libraries:
Eque2’s leading construction estimating software solution EValuate now features full integration of Laxton’s Building Price Book information, making it simple for users to quickly and accurately price jobs using Laxton’s resource rates and build ups or for comparison with your rates or subcontractors rates.
The exclusive partnership provides new and existing EValuate customers with access to material and labour costs as well as in depth industry information, available both in SMM7 (Standard Method of Measurement) and NRM2 (New Rules of Measurement) versions.
Customer Showcase: William Davis Homes
In September, we partnered with valued longstanding customer William Davis Homes to showcase their use of our house building software, Eque2 Housebuilding to effectively manage every part of the journey from initial land appraisal, through to build, the sales process and customer care. The company have used the software for over 20 years and it has developed to become the backbone of their business. You can watch the video here.
Supporting Customers: Knowledge Base
In addition to launching new products, we also launched a dedicated customer portal called Knowledge Base to support our existing customers. The portal includes a number of guides, videos and training to help ensure customers are getting the best use of the software. We will continue to add relevant content to the portal for all products in the coming months to add value for our customers.
2018 proved to be another successful year for Eque2 with the launch of new products, a steady increase in new customers and continuous development of relationships with existing customers. We look forward to building on this success throughout 2019!
