OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire -02/27/12)- To eliminate the biggest problems that historically plague the roofing industry, 3C Network has been created to transform the repair/replace process for consumers, contractors and carriers. Launched in conjunction with the annual International Roofing Expo in Orlando, Fla., 3C Network gives its roofing-contractor members a full spectrum of high-performance integrated services, proprietary technology and professional business support at their fingertips.
L.C. Nussbeck, co-founder of 3C Network, says its mission is to meet and exceed homeowners' expectations by enabling contractors to fundamentally improve their quality, speed and productivity. "Not only does 3C Network streamline and help improve every aspect of a contractor's business for better consumer results," he explained, "it also provides greater professionalism and consistency for all of the companies that are associated with restoring or building a roof."
Nussbeck continued, "Now serious roofing contractors can maximize their existing organization, capabilities and momentum by utilizing 3C Network's game-changing, and truly effective, technology, tools, education and other resources -- all to achieve never-before-seen results." 3C Network members have access to:
- high-performance job inspection and scoping tools for accurate, thorough estimates tied to a rules engine to identify regulations, local codes and insurance requirements;
- roofing management software with data integration, organization, reporting and controls;
- their choice of premium aerial CAD reports at a discounted rate;
- no-hassle extended warranty options on all materials and work;
- industry-smart training and certification programs;
- safety tools; and
- big savings on technology.
Focused on technology
For the first time, 3C Network allows its members to perform and have access to affordable tools that may have been out of reach previously for the typical roofing contractor. "The investment to bring cutting-edge technology together into a simple interface gives contractors on-demand control from the job site, the truck or the office," added Todd Keener, 3C Network's chief information officer. "These technology solutions create trust among consumers and their insurance carriers and make our members a reliable choice to perform any roofing, siding and guttering replacement and repairs."
Specifically, 3C Network provides each member with a subscription to roof-IS, a customized roofing-management software program that allows contractors to further organize and manage their business. In addition, it's integrated with other technologies to streamline workflow with the ability to order aerial CADs and consume the measurements. One example of those digital tools is ScopeAssist, which facilitates the inspection, measuring and estimating process, and integrates with roof-IS to order materials and warranties, view reports, manage projects, and control margins in a matter of seconds.
'A change agent'
"The bottom line is 3C Network is committed to its member contractors by listening to their individual needs, while providing an immense, scalable platform to empower change in the industry," Nussbeck stated. "The power to connect contractors to on-demand access of their data and supporting third-party data makes it a change agent for the betterment of consumers, contractors and carriers."
3C Network is an exclusive, by invitation-only member network focused on providing consumers with higher standards in roofing, guttering and siding through a network of members using 3C Network's technologies and services. The pathway to membership is through alliances with manufacturers, suppliers and service partners who collaborated to build its suite of services.
Headquartered in Omaha, Neb., 3C Network has more than 75 employees and plans to hire an additional 30 employees by this May. Visit www.3C.com for more information about the network and its member contractors.
