Probuild (App for Contractors) - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

At the time that we launched our company in 2016, we had each spent several years developing mobile apps for other clients; however, Probuild is the first mobile app that we’ve designed and developed entirely in-house, and remains our flagship product.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

When we founded Probuild, we wanted to develop a mobile app that meets the unique needs of small contracting businesses. We wanted to provide our users with an app that delivers all of the core features they need to run a successful service-based business but in a single mobile platform. Our users are amazing and have provided us with invaluable feedback over the years, and we’ve worked hard to incorporate that feedback into the app. The challenge is prioritizing which of those features are most important to our users’ success, and incorporating changes in a way that maintains ease of use and functionality.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

We regularly use Slack to stay connected and organized as a team. We like its simplicity and functionality. The app works well, without trying to be more than it needs to.

How long have you been working on this app?

We founded our company in 2016 and first released the app under the name of BareTeam that same year. We renamed the app Probuild in 2018.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We wanted to provide small contracting and skilled trade businesses with an affordable mobile application that helps them successfully manage their day-to-day operations from the field. Today, Probuild lets users manage projects, estimates, invoices, timesheets, and communications from anywhere—using just one app. Probuild also offers the most competitive pricing in the industry, making it an ideal choice for small businesses.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We’ve spent years developing a high-quality mobile app that’s trusted by thousands of small businesses around the world. Probuild is one of the few apps of its kind that provides all of the core features needed to run a successful contracting or trade business, conveniently packaged in a single mobile platform. Probuild’s intuitive, user-centric design ensures its users have quick and reliable access to all of the features and information they need to run their business. With Probuild, business owners and managers can keep their projects on track and on budget, even when working remotely, and workers can access important worksite information and track their hours, even when offline. Overall, we’re proud to provide our users with a reliable, high-quality product and positive user experience.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We already offer the app on both Android and iOS, and we’re now actively beta testing a web-based portal that’ll complement the mobile app. Beyond that, we’re always looking for ways to improve and refine the app or add new features based on user needs.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

If you run a small contracting or skilled trade business, check out the Probuild app. It may be the tool you need to help take your business to the next level. We invite you to download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, and just give it a try.
