HOVER Inc. | February 16, 2023
On February 15, 2023, HOVER, a technology company that converts smartphone photos and blueprint designs of any estate into a scaled 3D model, and ABC Supply Co., Inc., the largest wholesale distributor of siding, roofing, and other select interior and exterior building products in North America, announced that they are expanding their business relationship to provide contractors with quick, accurate measurements and estimates for ground-up construction or additions.
Through myABCsupply, its clients now have access to HOVER's array of solutions at preferential pricing. They can also charge HOVER jobs directly to their ABC Supply account, making it more straightforward for roofing and siding contractors to make special orders.
Contractors bidding on new construction projects may expedite the bidding process and boost their trust in every proposal by decreasing the laborious human labor necessary to acquire measurements and generate estimates. With HOVER's innovative construction solution, ABC Supply clients can upload any design from their smartphone or personal computer and obtain precise measurements and siding and roofing quotes for their project within hours. This functionality eliminates the laborious process of scaling off blueprint drawings and the necessity for complicated spreadsheets or specialist software.
In addition, HOVER converts a 2D drawing into a full-color 3D model, enabling contractors to excite homeowners with a digital model displaying the project in various materials and colors. This feature allows for contractors bidding on new projects to use 3D visualizations to distinguish their offers.
HOVER is a 3D data and technology firm for home repair and property insurance experts. It is building the most complete and useable data collection of the physical property to make home repair and new construction more accessible and transparent. Utilized by builders, insurance adjusters, and homeowners alike, HOVER is a mobile software that measures, plans, and estimates prices in a single location; smartphone images or blueprints of unbuilt buildings are converted into beautifully rendered, fully-measured 3D models of any property. In addition, the company, renowned for its industry-leading measurements, 3D renderings, and accurate project estimates, provides contractors with easy-to-use tools and configurable automation for every outdoor trade, task type, and team—all in one location.

Contruent Enterprise comes ready to use right out of the box. With a configurable dashboard and additional features like contract management, integrated cost and schedule, engineering, and field management, the software optimizes the scheduling and budget management of construction megaprojects. Contruent Enterprise provides customers with a powerful project-ready management platform that can provide assistance with timetable and budget requirements all in one location.

Contruent Enterprise has all of the features consumers enjoyed in its predecessor, ARES PRISM, in addition to new and better improvements. Contruent Enterprise is cloud-based, making it easier for project managers and large construction teams to collaborate and see what's going on. Clients that use existing on-premise legacy systems will continue to receive the same commitment and support while benefiting from a more robust business foundation.

It combines scheduling and cost and comes project-ready out of the box, thereby is faster to deploy across the project lifecycle. It facilitates enhanced speed, accuracy, and cost efficiency.
