The platform also offers an estimation tool called Beztimate where users can get info on cost, time and quantity of material.

According to its press statement, the company is working on building a management tool where builders can monitor construction metrics such as cost, timelines, inventory etc on a real time basis, along with live feeds, alerts and updates. It offers an Android and iOS app, along with a web portal, and claims to clock 750-800 monthly orders since it began operations in September last year.
