Builders save time with shorter start-to-finish construction cycle times, build greener with reduced waste, and increase profits and boost efficiency with precision-built panels constructed in a controlled environment. But would switching to SAPPHIRE help Blenker with their component manufacturing business?
The SAPPHIRE Suite proved to be a good investment for Blenker Building Systems, helping them collaborate more efficiently both internally and externally, with customers. “We carefully selected software that integrates the home design and component manufacturing ends of our business,” Jason Blenker says of the SAPPHIRE adoption.
