It was January 10, 2009, when we we rolled out the first stable version of our platform. Webduct was originally designed for an HVAC contractor, focused on a single objective: integrate field orders directly into CAM software. It was quite a challenge back then. Blackberry was the be all and end all in the mobile arena, and Apple hadn’t even got the iPhone off the launch pad. A lot has changed since then, both in mobile technology and at Webduct.
As the number and diversity of our clients has grown, so, too, have the features and benefits Webduct provides those clients. As fully integrated mechanical contractors came on board and had success within their sheet metal divisions, demand for features and services for their other trades has grown and continues to drive development.
As the company’s clients and services diversified, it wasn’t long before people began asking why the company was called Webduct. A fair question, to be sure. It was where we started, but the company has evolved to the point where the words no longer fit the picture. It is time for a name change.
In the online world, evolution is the name of the game. Our technology is constantly evolving and so must the company. Webduct is now BuildCentrix. This isn’t to diminish the service we provide in sheet metal/HVAC, but to make it easier to bring the same great service and passion to other mechanical trades. Existing clients will get the same great service and support, and new clients in new trades will get to experience it now, as well.
