PeerAssist, a leading provider of construction technology productivity software helps construction companies like Decker Electric with our purchasing control system to deliver a more effective and cost-saving tool for contractors looking to improve the material ordering process and maximize profitability.

In construction, especially during these challenging times, contractors can’t afford bottlenecks within any workflow that prevents efficiency or hinders the ability to control costs and impact the bottom line. Successful contractors understand that the material purchasing process is critical and can help contractors to stay within budget and maintain/improve profitability on construction projects. Whether the construction project is large or small, construction material purchasing must be timely, accurate, ensure the best pricing, and executed with precision. Without a system in place, contractors risk huge profits being missed and can encounter costly impact during the material ordering process. The material purchasing process often lacks controls for this highly tedious process.
