Stone Edge Surfaces Announces the Release of Job Estimator Pro™, the Concrete Overlay Industry’s First Job and Labor Estimating APP
MESA, AZ - April 26, 2018 – Stone Edge Surfaces, a division of Turley International Resources, LLC, the owner of concrete manufacturing, mining, packaging, and fulfillment operations in the U.S., New Zealand and Chile, officially announced the release of their new Job Estimator Pro™ APP for the stamped concrete overlay and decorative concrete industry. This new APP quickly and easily creates customized job specific estimates and calculates labor costs and profit margin, so the profitability of the estimate can be immediately verified and adjusted before emailing to the customer. The APP also simplifies material ordering for a Contractor and a Distributor by automatically creating and formatting job specific material quantity lists for the sales and front counter staff to use when placing product orders.
Stone Edge Surfaces President and APP creator, Bruce Grogg, commented: "When I started with Turley International the only experience I had with customizable concrete veneers, concrete overlays or decorative concrete had come from a few training classes and my own personal experience as an industry consultant. After my first year of helping hundreds of industry veterans, new contractors and distributors figure out their job estimates, product orders, profitability and technical questions, I went looking for an APP that could help me handle some of the requests.”
Mr. Grogg went on to say: “After researching, asking contractors, and comparing existing APP’s, there just wasn’t an effective industry specific APP available. So, we created one that, although based on Stone Edge Surfaces products, is similar enough in product application coverage to competing products, to be usable by just about everyone. It is my belief that the more people who download the APP and use it to simplify their estimating and ordering processes while increasing their understanding of the concrete overlay market, the faster and bigger our industry will grow.”
