We outlined 3 ways Houzz Pro can empower your business to reduce ecological footprint and support the global fight against climate change.

Houzz Pro

24 SEPTEMBER 2021

As construction pros, we need to face the facts: the home building industry has massive effects on the world’s environment; from processes used for business management and materials, to waste production and disposal. Construction professionals, as both individuals and as businesses, have the potential to make a huge impact on the preservation of our environment for future generations, because construction pros are the ones selecting which materials, methods, and processes are used in their everyday work. The type of solutions that will be used to bring their design vision to life can make a deep lasting impact on the environment. As a construction professional, you can play a vital part in reducing some of the negative environmental impacts. 

Change starts by making a conscious choice. To help you take a step toward more Earth-friendly business practices, we outlined 3 ways Houzz Pro can empower your business to reduce your ecological footprint and support the global fight against climate change:

1. Houzz Pro helps save precious resources like trees and fossil fuels.

Increased efficiency has many ripple effects. Houzz Pro's seamless tracking of key project and business activities ensures fluid project management, whether you’re in the office, at home, or in the field. By speeding up your projects, you reduce disruptions as well as associated emissions and fuel costs because you no longer have to rely so heavily on your car. 

Have you considered doing more remote work, from video calls to reviewing your estimates with clients via video call instead of always driving to meet in person? If enough construction professionals make this small change, think of how much fuel could be saved, and the amount of carbon emissions reduced. Also, by being more efficient with online tools and keeping your clients happy, it means you’ll be getting repeat business and will grow your leads. The move towards digital estimates and online project management saves paper, and therefore trees. 

Every action matters. Shifting your construction business management to online and to mobile has a positive impact if multiplied by hundreds and tens of thousands of professionals and clients around the world. When everyone is on the same digital page, think of the impact we can make on the environment.

2. Houzz Pro's all-in-one business solution saves time - your most precious resource. 

When working on a client's home, it is hard to think about the bigger picture – that we also have one big home for all of us: our planet. As environmental issues are becoming front and centre of our daily lives, ignoring major global climate crises is no longer acceptable. If every construction professional would consciously save energy in every way possible, big or small, collectively we could make a great difference in decreasing the amount consumed by our industry. 

Case in point, a simple switch to Houzz Pro's all-in-one construction business management solution could help you reduce your carbon footprint throughout your business processes. You can communicate with clients virtually, and handle all your paperwork - from estimates to contracts to change orders - in one central place, reducing the paper burden. 

Houzz Pro unlocks the ability to access and use shared data, stored in the cloud, in real-time, with no lag. Because you can do everything in one place using Houzz Pro construction project management software, from time-tracking and document sharing, to 3D design tools to invoice requests, the amount of time scrolling across multiple software solutions and waiting for data to load across multiple databases is greatly reduced. Imagine: less paper chasing, printing and archiving of construction documents, and more efficient online management of your business from leads to close!

3. Houzz Pro results in better, more effective communication, which means fewer mistakes.

As you know, construction is a complex business and clients often have many questions or changes that are hard to remember, especially at a field site. Houzz Pro change orders, task management, and time tracking tools will help construction professionals scale their businesses with fewer resources. By integrating email accounts, video calls, e-calendars and daily logs, the Houzz Pro client dashboard helps you communicate faster and more effectively with clients, no matter where you are in the process of construction. And better communication means more accurate budgets, positive outcomes, and happy clients! It's like having a personal digital assistant with minimal ecological footprint. With Houzz Pro you’re more likely to get it right the first time, reducing waste, and saving the scarce resources of our planet.

The climate is changing, is your business changing too? Join the movement toward sustainability and try Houzz Pro's all-in-one solution for free to help you go green today.
