cove.tool | January 16, 2023
In a recent announcement, leading architectural design and construction solutions provider, cove.tool launched a cloud-based software, revgen.tool, designed to make it simple for building product manufacturers to attract qualified leads, effectively market their products, and drive revenue. This unique, industry-first solution allows manufacturers to build relationships with engineering, architecture and construction (AEC) professionals with verified advanced building performance engines. This helps manufacturers make informed product decisions earlier in a project’s lifecycle.
Product performance within a project can be highlighted via the revgen.tool by manufacturers, and market their products for specific needs. Harnessing advanced analytics, the software sifts through thousands of building designs within architecture 3D models, which also includes BIM, to assist teams in identifying the best match for their products. This allows building product manufacturers to connect with the right engineers and architects and strengthen relationships. AEC teams can access real-time data to identify new products, which in turn helps them save time and resources. As a trusted third-party partner shares the data, it is easier for manufacturers to build trust and establish relationships with AEC professionals by sharing accurate data for projects and products.
Patrick Chopson, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at cove.tool, “Driven by the urgent need to rapidly reduce carbon emissions and take climate action, there are political, economic, regulatory, and climate-driven macros on a global scale driving a massive shift in the design and construction of buildings. To help meet the targets before 2030, it is essential for manufacturers to partner with architects and engineers.” He further added, “With revgen.tool, this is finally possible. Manufacturers and design teams can now better align on what products may best fit with real-time, project-specific performance analysis. Newer, high-performance products can be highlighted, encouraging adoption that helps create more comfortable, efficient, and sustainable buildings. Our system enables manufacturers and design teams to forge stronger, more successful relationships based on data.”
Cove.tool platform helps with the entire building lifecycle, from analysis to design and construction. Their point-based solutions link to build a connected eco-system that enables teams to collaborate on project data, resulting in more cost-effective decisions. By assisting developers, builders, and architects in using data-driven design through automation and cost reduction, cove.tool fights climate change.

Bectran | November 11, 2022
Bectran, Inc., an industry leader providing cutting-edge credit, collections and accounts receivable automation software, has released a suite of API solutions to streamline the data transfer process between sales and credit departments when initiating or documenting construction job sheets, allowing for clearer oversight of information all in one central system. With this API suite, we have eliminated the need for sales professionals to leave their CRM in order to create, initiate, link or store construction job sheets in Bectran for the credit department’s review. These APIs will not require your sales team to have to learn a new system to keep work flowing from department to department. The enhanced construction job sheet APIs are designed to facilitate a simplified data transmission process between the Bectran platform and your current CRM, streamlining interdepartmental communication while maintaining consistent and accurate data.
In the past, the construction job sheet initiation and documentation process involved the constant interchange of information between different applications, software or systems within the credit and sales teams. Companies without technology to supplement the data collection had it even worse, often requiring the manual input of data into multiple systems, which significantly heightened the probability of error. It was also an extremely time-intensive process, resulting in delays and, subsequently, dissatisfied customers. This combination of unhappy customers and overworked, burned-out teams only leads to further friction between departments and lost sales. More importantly, growing your company becomes nearly impossible because this redundant, repetitive, time-intensive process is difficult to maintain accurately at scale.
That is precisely where Bectran identified a need for improved efficiency and established APIs so that sales teams no longer need to abandon your current CRM to initiate or store construction job sheets. Bectran makes it simple to capture existing project information and combine it with new data, all while remaining within your own CRM. These APIs can be called from the system that your sales team presently lives within for secure and instantaneous transmission of job data to the Bectran platform.
“We recognized the need to have complete oversight of construction job sheet information in one system and the ever-present need for those processes to continue operating smoothly at scale. These APIs will improve the efficiency of your own existing workflow without having to become proficient in the intricacies of a new application.”
-Louis Ifeguni, CEO of Bectran.
Overall, these APIs will help facilitate more seamless interdepartmental communication while saving your teams time and resources to focus on more strategic business initiatives. The construction job sheet API suite is now available to our customers. To start using these APIs, please contact your product services specialist.
