Palo Alto, Calif. — Houzz has announced the acquisition of ConX, a SaaS takeoff and estimation tool. The ConX software, which enables contractors to do on-screen takeoffs from construction plans and turn them into professional estimates, is now fully integrated and available in Houzz Pro.
Contractors can streamline the estimation process and turn bids around faster with Houzz Pro Takeoffs, the company says, helping them save time and win more jobs. In addition, takeoffs created in Houzz Pro can be directly converted into estimates, as part of the Houzz Pro project management workflow.
“We’re excited to bring the power of ConX’s takeoff tool to contractors using Houzz Pro, and to welcome ConX’s customers around the world to the Houzz community,” said Alon Cohen, Houzz co-founder and president. “Creating estimates can be incredibly time intensive for contractors. By providing fully integrated, easy-to-use Houzz Pro Takeoffs, we’re helping pros to efficiently manage and grow their businesses, and spend less time on back office work.”
“We are thrilled to join forces with Houzz in their mission to create the best software for construction and design,” said Annie Slattery, ConX co-founder and CEO. “It is incredibly exciting to see ConX’s tools built into the end-to-end Houzz Pro offering, helping contractors around the world run efficient, profitable businesses.”
Houzz Pro Takeoffs is applicable to builders, remodelers and specialty contractors across the construction industry from carpenters to roofers, electricians, plumbers and concrete contractors. The program can auto-calculate total material costs, based on prices added by the pro.
