Be more profitable.
Generate material and labour quote requests for project-specific pricing and ensure you are paying the best price.
Confidently manage suppliers & pricing.
Chalkstring stores and manages all your materials and pricing from all your suppliers. You can instantly see available list prices, negotiated project-specific rates plus all historical pricing. This helps you to quickly cost construction jobs using the most competitive rates to increase the chances of securing the contract.
Improve how you manage your quotes by getting your suppliers to provide their pricing & rebates in a standardised format that can be uploaded to Chalkstring in seconds. You can send the same quote request to multiple suppliers with no extra effort, and Chalkstring simply compares quotes and finds the best prices to maximise your margin.
Eliminate frustrating & chaotic paper trails.
Procurement is fast and simple. Just select what you need and Chalkstring automatically generates purchase orders for each supplier. You can also produce delivery schedules to ensure goods reach the correct location onsite to avoid double handling and minimise downtime.
Your site team can easily record deliveries, either full or partial, together with the proof of delivery. This information is instantly visible in Chalkstring, meaning that your accounts team can easily approve, query or reject invoices for payment without needing to check with site staff.
Have more control over your procurement process.
Use Chalkstring’s seamless quote-to-invoice workflow to keep you in control of your suppliers.
Order what’s needed at the right time and price.
Chalkstring understands how your project is phased, so will help you procure the right quantities of the right materials at the right time. Each material is associated with a chosen supplier, so you can be confident you’re paying the right price. Plus, Chalkstring will flag any over-ordering to keep you in full control.
Stay on top of every delivery.
It's easy to keep track of deliveries to site with Chalkstring. Simply log each delivery as it arrives, noting down if it's been delivered in full or part. Quickly photograph the delivery note and upload it to Chalkstring, so that everyone knows what’s been delivered and what’s outstanding.
Make sure your rebates are correct.
Chalkstring tracks everything that you’ve ever ordered across all your projects and calculates supplier rebates. There’s no need to waste time scrabbling around for information to validate suppliers’ rebate figures – everything you need is at hand to ensure you’re paid what is due.
