“My father got most of his jobs through word of mouth. Like a lot of people of his generation, he didn’t use the internet or online tools.”

Two years ago, Daianne Barros and her brother became the new generation in De Oliveira Flooring Flooring & Remodeling, a minority-owned business that their father started 15 years ago. With a mobile office, they go where the jobs are — taking on residential and commercial projects throughout south Florida.

“We do lots of flooring installation — wood, vinyl, porcelain —as well as bathroom and kitchen remodels for our residential clients. When it comes to commercial projects, we focus more on the flooring.”

When Daianne and her brother first got started with the business, they quickly realized that they needed to find a reliable way to generate new business, build relationships with more general contractors, and expand their reach. They wanted to diversify their business with more commercial jobs to balance out the cyclical nature of residential work — but they weren’t sure where to start.

“Residential has highs and lows — for instance, people don’t want to start a remodel near the holidays. By increasing our commercial work, we thought we could level it out and keep our revenue steadier throughout the year.”

Daianne had taken over the administrative work of bidding, invoicing, customer relations, and keeping track of projects and more. In her fathers day, it was all manual, paper records. She knew there had to be a better way. The siblings had both grown up using technology and thought that there were probably good solutions out there for them.

“I work a lot in West Palm Beach and I saw the sign at your headquarters. I googled you and I was impressed with what I saw. I thought I’d sign up!”


An Easy-to-Use and All-in-One Solution to Identify Commercial Jobs

As soon as Daianne signed up, she got value from PlanHub. She was able to find jobs easily using filters that let her hone in on the exact kinds of jobs she wanted. She could find jobs in their area, select ones that focused on the types of flooring they specialize in — as well as the size jobs she felt were right for their small business. Immediately she saw that PlanHub had many jobs that fit her criteria. She had to be selective so they could manage growth.

“Unlike other bidding platforms that I’ve looked into, I could find jobs tailored to my kind of business, the size of my business. PlanHub is a really good value — I immediately saved time and money.”

Another reason Daianne wanted to find a digital solution was to boost efficiency. As the person handling all the administrative work, from bidding on jobs to customer relationships and tracking jobs, she needed to find a faster way to get the work done. PlanHub’s Takeoff tools gave her the ability to do everything she needed in a single solution.

“The takeoff tools have been a game changer for me! Before I had to do takeoff manually or purchase expensive separate takeoff software to measure the plans for a job.”

In addition, Daianne uses the built-in analytics to make sure her bids are competitive and that she’s looking at the right jobs.  

“The takeoff tools and analytics are huge for me — and unique to PlanHub.”.


Targeting the right jobs is driving growth and building long term success

“I would recommend PlanHub 100%!”

Daianne is keeping her backlog filled with carefully selected project opportunities. While she only submits about 5-6 bids each month — it’s clear she is picking the right ones because her win rate is spectacular!

“We win about 6-7 projects out of every 10 we bid on. That’s really exciting. We’re not wasting time bidding on jobs that aren’t right for our skills and talents.”

PlanHub has provided the ability to keep a steady stream of revenue despite the cyclical nature of residential work. The company is using PlanHub daily to drive greater productivity and identify the right jobs. PlanHub is now an integral part of Daianne’s strategy for continuing health, stable growth over the long term.

“Last year we brought in around $200,000 in additional revenue because of PlanHub. This year I think it will be $300,000-$400,000. Bidding on commercial jobs through PlanHub is going to be our main focus for the year.”

      Bid Leveler & Proposal builder

      Comparing bids to one another has never been easier. Users can now see bids side by side, compare bid amounts, and review subcontractors’ certifications and qualifications all in one place.

      Bid Leveler’s apples-to-apples approach allows you to easily drill down and see detailed, easy-to-scan cost breakdowns. Indicate bid preference, hide bids that don’t meet your needs, and request needed information from subs.

      Full Bid Management

      From the initial decision to pursue a project to the final bid submission and follow up, bid management plays a central role in pre construction.

      Effectively managed bids during the preconstruction phase set the stage for a successful project execution and satisfied clients.

      Streamline bid management from project posting to estimating, bidding, and awarding in one place with easy project posting, project-contractor automatic matching based on trades, location, and qualification with PlanHub.

      Use bid planner, bid builder, bid leveler, and award tools to always know what’s going on with each project and bid.

      Estimation and TakeOff

      Let’s face it—time is money. And the more time it takes to perform takeoffs and submit bids, the more you risk losing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Manual methods and locally installed desktop software slow your takeoff process, and many digital solutions currently on the market can be overly complex and not user-friendly. 

      Build faster takeoffs, get more bids out the door, and win more projects. Forget pen and paper, outdated desktop software, and overly complicated digital takeoff solutions. PlanHub’s easy-to-use Takeoff tool helps you and your team build accurate takeoffs faster, minimize errors and material waste, and win more projects that boost your business growth. Performing your takeoffs with PlanHub allows you to:

      • Streamline and integrate your process: Perform your takeoffs in the same platform you use to manage your network and bids.
      • Avoid costly estimating errors: Get better accuracy with digital tools instead of traditional, mistake-prone pen and paper.
      • Collaborate easily: Share and work with your team, no matter where you—or they—are located.
      • Submit more bids and win more projects: Get quality bids in front of general contractors faster and get ahead of your competition.

      Document Management

      Organize, store, and manage various documents, blueprints, drawings and other information related to projects before the actual construction phase begins.

      This phase is crucial for setting the foundation of a successful construction project, and effective document management plays a significant role in ensuring that all necessary information is accessible, accurate, and up-to-date to all interested parties.

      Access, review, work on, and share large complex documents in one platform with amazing speed. From project definition, drawing management, takeoff, estimation, bid management, and contracts, everything happens in PlanHub.

      1M+ pre-qualified network

      PlanHub is the leading platform that connects companies, construction professionals, and projects in the pre-construction industry, focusing on building and developing meaningful relationships to enhance efficiency and productivity.

      We have integrated general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers’ workflows in one platform to simplify the complex back and forth usually present in preconstruction. By allowing all interactions to be done through PlanHub, tracking projects and relationships is much easier, saving contractors and material suppliers time and money. Interactions in the platform are tagged and measured to provide insights to users.

      General contractors create bid packages that are shared in PlanHub as projects. They can include templatized lists of all CSI cost items as part of the new Baseline feature. Baseline allows for faster and more accurate bid requests, facilitates homogenization of subcontractors’ bids, and simplifies the comparison of incoming bids.

      Subcontractors are automatically matched with relevant projects based on their profile, preferences, and pre-qualification information saving hours of research to both sides. They can review project details, documentation, and blueprints.

      High-quality projects

      Your one-stop job for qualified hard-to-find private project leads in varying stages like pre-planning, bidding, etc., and across different geographies, zip codes, or distance to your office.

      Projects include plans, specifications, bid dates, and other relevant project information.

      You can segment project leads by type of project, status, project building use, trades and sub trades, or create your own list of keywords — and be notified when one of them is found in a posted project’s documentation or plans.

      We make it simple to find projects that match your business — and make sure you are notified right away.
