Houzz Launches Selections in Houzz Pro for Custom Builders and Remodelers
New tool simplifies the product and material finishes selection process
Houzz Inc, the leading platform for home remodeling and design, today introduced Selections within Houzz Pro, the all-in-one business management and marketing software for residential remodeling and design professionals. The Houzz Pro Selections tool provides a collaborative platform for custom builders and remodelers and their clients to review and agree on products, materials and other finishes.
“Builders and remodelers help homeowners to make hundreds, if not thousands, of product material and finish decisions for their home,” said Alon Cohen, Houzz co-founder and president. “The Houzz Pro Selections tool simplifies the decision-making process by organizing all of the options in one place online. It also becomes the single source of truth for all of the choices that were made.”
With the Selections tool, builders and remodelers can create digital product and material presentations for each room, area or product type in a project. Those presentations can include all of the recommended product and material options with key information like price and brand, as well as design elements to help clients see the bigger design picture, such as Houzz Pro 3D Floor Plans and Mood Boards. With the Budget Tracker, both contractor and client can see the impact of each selection on the budget or allowances for the space.
Customers can review, communicate feedback and approve or decline each product and finish for their project online or from their phone, and in one place using the Houzz Pro Selections tool. Builders and remodelers can easily reference all communication for each product, including internal and client-facing notes, at any time. Any approved items can be converted to an estimate, invoice or purchase order with one click.
"Selections has really streamlined our design team's process and workflow, and we love that it's so easy to use," said Danny Wang, President, DW Development and Principal Designer of Danny Wang Design, "For design-build firms like ours, there's huge value in documenting the interactions with our clients, together with their final decisions. Plus our clients, our design, and our build teams are always on the same page because they can reference those selections anytime in the Houzz Pro platform."
The Houzz Pro Selections tool is available to all builders and remodelers who have a “Pro” or “Ultimate” level subscription to Houzz Pro in the U.S. It is fully integrated into Houzz Pro, making it easy to move from the planning phase into construction.
Houzz Pro helps residential construction and design professionals run an efficient, profitable business and makes it easy for them to reach new customers, all while delivering a standout client experience. The software, priced to fit any budget or team, also includes scheduling, daily logs, time tracking, online invoicing and payments and other project management, design and business tools.
