We are homeowners, contractors, designers, businesspeople and software developers. We came together to create software solutions that would help with all our home management needs, that we would want to use, and everyone else too of course. We wanted a platform that we would feel safe using, that gave us value, that we would like using, and that would help us do what we need and want to do with our homes. We couldn’t find any that did everything we wanted, so, we decided to build one. Before we started developing BuildEffective, we listed the values it had to represent, and what we believe our software platform should and shouldn’t be.
