Buildxact has joined the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association’s (NLBMDA) Manufacturers and Services Council (MSC). The council is composed of building material manufacturers and service providers serving the LBM industry.

MSC members are established leaders who supply products and services to LBM dealers across the nation who share a commitment to promoting and enhancing the success of independent dealers, according to the NLBMDA.

Buildxact has added features to its estimating and project management software to address several long-term challenges the industry has faced concerning the time and accuracy required for builders to properly submit lumber orders. The company is incorporating ERP capabilities to digitize the process for greater efficiency and accuracy. Through the time saved, dealers are able to find time for sales representatives to consult and review customer plans, according to Buildxact.

“We at Buildxact are excited to be part of the NLBMDA family,” Stephen Yates, Buildxact EVP of enterprise and industry partners, said in a news release. “We are committed to providing the digital tools that extend the relationship between lumber dealers and their builders. This is especially important during times when the supply of both materials and labor can be hard to predict. We look forward to working with our NLBMDA members over the coming months.”
