We work with Merchants of all types to provide efficient solutions...

We created a fixed-fee subscription platform that does not disrupt the transaction between contractor and merchant to ensure adoption throughout the industry at all levels.

Builders Merchants benefit from filtered enquiries being driven to their business without the worry of commission fees on every sale, paired with data driven insights enabling suppliers to improve efficiency when servicing customers.
