Case Study

“PlanHub helps me find jobs tailored to my business. That’s how we grew revenue by more than $200,000 this year.”
Jennifer P.
General Contractor

Diversifying projects amplifies growth for
De Oliveira Flooring

CHALLENGE

The company was looking to diversify its residential work that was more susceptible to economic volatility by adding commercial jobs and taking on new kinds of flooring, like polished concrete. The challenge was to find a way to make contact with commercial contractors over a large area in south Florida.

As a smaller, family-owned company, they needed to carefully manage growth too — so the jobs they bid on needed to be tailored to their specific skills, area, and size.

SOLUTION

PlanHub provided a huge number of funded commercial projects that they could quickly find projects that matched their business needs exactly: including the geographic range, job size, and types of flooring they specialized in. “I can be very selective on the types of jobs that I bid on…PlanHub saves us time and money.”

Other features were invaluable too, like the integrated takeoff tools and competitive analytics that helped the company ensure their bids were accurate and competitive.

RESULTS

$200,000

Additional revenue in a single year

6-7 wins

out of every 10 bids submitted through PlanHub
