Happy May! Spring is here and the building season is underway. Builders are busy with the pent up demand from the long winter months and homeowners are eager to tackle their spring projects. Hancock Lumber has exciting news about a new deck, garage design program that enables our Project Pros and Account Managers to help design and price plans, along with provide materials list to customers on the spot. All of our retail sales team has gone through training on how to use the program and leverage the tools it has to offer. Our product management team has also synched the system with our product inventory and pricing, so the customer can leave a meeting with a design and priced materials list–and walk through changes on screen to see various product options, sizes and designs available.
Customers love this program, as they are able to take the design to their respective towns when applying for their building permit–and, the software program automatically generates a complete materials list and pricing based on the exact deck designed.
Project Pro, Kara Brochu, commented on the value of the new program, “At Hancock Lumber, we have been trained to use a deck + garage program that is helpful on a day-to-day basis because it can show railing details, decking details, colors, and framing details. It is a really good, visual tool for a homeowner to be able to come in and sit down and see within minutes what their deck could potentially look like.”
