Proficient when deficient
Vancouver-based SiteMax Systems Inc. made its name developing project management software for contractors, beginning with Wales McLelland Construction Ltd.
Now, it’s setting its sights on the downside of construction: deficiencies.
During the Buildex Express show in Vancouver last week SiteMax showcased Rectify, a new application that will launch in November. The service is free for up to 100 deficiencies on a single property, and $59 a year for a subscription that will cover multiple properties.
The service operates on a mobile platform, allowing remote management and interaction between a client, contractor, insurers and friends to whom the client might want to refer the contractor.
“You can share your deficiency with anybody,”
explained James Faulkner, president and co-founder of SiteMax.
“I have a structure around how much I’m going to pay them, how much I’m going to hold back till it’s finished, and then there’s a record of this deficiency that’s been done for my house.”
Faulkner believes the service could benefit people renting out a portion of their homes, or managing a small portfolio of condos.
“They have to rely on that contractor to have their own process, and I can tell you from my experience, they don’t all have one,” he said. “It puts the power in the consumer’s hands to manage their people.” •
