Florida International University Implements Jetbuilt to Better Manage Media Technology Services

Florida International University Implements Jetbuilt to Better Manage Media Technology Services

Project and product accountability a breeze for FIU with Jetbuilt’s proposal building software

 

Newport Beach, Calif. — December 29, 2016 — With a student body of nearly 54,000, Florida International University (FIU) – ranked ten among the nation for largest public university – utilizes Jetbuilt to create more professional and efficient proposals for technology projects throughout its campus. With Jetbuilt, FIU’s Media Technology Services department has increased accountability for billing internal client needs, project sharing information, product inventory and tracking proposals, filling the need for a versatile, reliable proposal building and project software for Miami’s first and only public research university.

Florida International University’s Department of Media Technology Services serves the university as the in-house custom integrators for technology in the university’s common areas, as well as for various departments with specific technology needs. The Department of Media Technology Services has transformed department procedures using Jetbuilt. 

“At Florida International University, our Department of Media Technology Services is a revenue generating department,” said Stephen Bromfield, assistant director of media systems for Florida International University’s Media Technology Services. “We have state funding, which allows us to serve the University’s general rooms, such as classrooms and common rooms where we maintain the technology. We also receive requests for proposals from university departments for projects such as conference rooms or training rooms owned by a department, which pay us for our services from their department budgets. With Jetbuilt, we have transformed the way we develop proposals. We can quickly create great looking proposals with accurate information to report internally and email out to inquiring departments.”

Recognized by Bloomberg Business Week as the leading college for diverse business studies, Florida International University has two major campuses, located in West Miami-Dade County and Biscayne Bay. With a large campus, it can be cumbersome to keep proposals and products organized in order to maintain the technology to provide the highest-quality learning for students, making it crucial to have a reliable resource. 

“We had tried about four other ‘solutions’ prior to using Jetbuilt and none of them met the needs for everything we required. I found myself complaining about this on Twitter and Jetbuilt reached out and invited us to try the software,” explained Bromfield. “A robust solution like Jetbuilt was a need for our department, as we were then using Excel spreadsheets to track proposals and projects. Excel wasn’t very scalable for us because if one person worked on the spreadsheet and didn’t place it on the shared drive, information would get lost and our clients weren’t always billed properly. In addition, being a cloud-based software, Jetbuilt removes the added stress of a disaster recovery program. It’s one less headache I have to worry about as I can comfortably rely on Jetbuilt to protect my data.”

Jetbuilt provides users with an extensive resource with nearly everything at their fingertips. With integrated product database, dealer pricing, team collaboration, change orders,  purchase orders, word orders, QuickBooks integration and innovative project overview page, Jetbuilt has transformed the way integrators do business. “We’ve been using Jetbuilt for over a year now and it’s been a great asset to our department because we no longer have to import any data, which we were manually doing with our Excel spreadsheets,” said Bromfield. “Jetbuilt has accurate information about manufacturers and MSRP [dealer price and MAP], doing all the work for us and automatically filling in our prices. Previously, we were using Google with part numbers to verify prices and other details so we’re able to cut back on time spent creating proposals. It’s a beautiful thing. It’s really made our life that much easier because we’re able to spend far less time creating proposals and more time completing installations.”

“With Jetbuilt, we can see how many proposals have been sent out and track how many projects that have received approval,” said Bromfield. “It has allowed us to be more accountable because we can track patterns. We can see which products we’re using most frequently to ensure we keep the particular products in stock to cut back on turnaround time. It’s also been helpful on many occasions when my superiors or department leaders have reached out for stats related to the department. We can easily pull the revenue for auxiliary projects to show how busy we are and how many proposals we’ve generated and closed. In my department, we pull all of the money together into one account, including both state funding project revenue and auxiliary revenue, and with Jetbuilt we can determine difference in revenue, allowing us to decipher our ‘real’ profits and potentially receive a greater share of the money in the account to reinvest in our people.”

“We have a tech committee at Florida International University and they’re in charge of approving projects that are submitted to them. Since we’ve been using Jetbuilt, I’ve been approached countless times and complimented on my proposals because of the aesthetics, as well as the detailed outline they provide,” said Bromfield. “Our tech committee can break down the proposal by scope, room and more, to make it easy to analyze and understand. I would absolutely recommend Jetbuilt to other universities and I’ve actually recommended it to other divisions and departments within Florida International University. Jetbuilt is truly that easy to use and the most reliable way to track things from beginning to end while having a professional, detailed proposal.”


Jetbuilt allows users to collaborate with a team on any project and is compatible with Windows, Mac and iOS. It’s cloud based technology allows a team to work anywhere and everywhere without the hassle of VPN routers. Jetbuilt boasts hundreds of thousands of AV, IT and security products integrated into the system, as well as QuickBooks integration.

US Department of State Enhances Procedures with Jetbuilt’s Cloud-Based Platform

US Department of State Enhances Procedures with Jetbuilt’s Cloud-Based Platform

RFPs creates more efficient Performance Work Statements for US Department of State

Newport Beach, Calif. — October 27, 2016 — The United States’ federal executive department, the Department of State – responsible for the international relations of the United States – has streamlined their Performance Work Statement within the Video Program Office with Jetbuilt’s Request for Proposal features. With Jetbuilt, the Video Program Office can now create solid proposals for new or renovated A/V room designs to constituents at United States embassies, consulates, posts and administrative offices throughout the world in a more efficient and standardized process than ever before. 

The Department of State has many restrictions for heightened security purposes, partly because of previous incurred data breaches, creating an extensive and timely approval process for adopting new software applications for use on government computers, typically taking years while many plans never come to fruition. Being a cloud-based platform, the Video Program Office was able to gain approval to utilize Jetbuilt’s software very quickly: “The only reason why we have been able to quickly integrate Jetbuilt was through by-passing a download or plug-in, usually required by most software applications. The cloud-based platform was able to cut our approval process to a marginal timeframe, allowing us to focus more on developing solid proposals,” said John Reeg, senior systems engineer from US Department of State’s Video Program Office. “Performance Work Statements, or proposals, are a very important part of my role for the Department of State and with Jetbuilt, I’m able to create solid proposals for new or renovated A/V rooms throughout the country and throughout the world in a more efficient manner.” 

The Video Program Office creates Performance Work Statements, consisting of equipment recommendations with costs estimates, as well as for installation, programming, project management and other labor costs. With Jetbuilt, “We can also include written documentation of the project scope, overview, customer and contractor requirements, security requirements and bid clarifications and assumptions with equipment recommendations and estimated costs, all within one professional proposal. Once the proposal has been approved by our customer, we strip away the estimated costs and develop an ‘Approval Memo’ from the Video Program Office and return it to the customer. The customer will submit it to the Acquisition

Management Bureau, which manages the distribution to the IDIQ, and our approved lists of AV Integrator Contractors will then be able to submit bid proposals,” said Reeg. “We’re able to streamline our entire process by incorporating Jetbuilt, which has allowed us to create standardized systems for our AV rooms across the world.”

Previously, the development of Performance Work Statements was predominately left up to the customer to draw up. By taking over authorship in complete development of the Performance Work Statement, the Department of State’s Video Program Office can standardize the process of equipment recommendation and project execution. “Prior to taking responsibility for Performance Work Statements, we would often find a disconnect when systems started to fail after the standard first year of support included by the integrator and often would become far worse when we discovered that the integrator is no longer available. With over 2,000 VTC codecs around the world, conducting on average of over 1,500 VTC sessions a week, “up-time” is important for any of our customers who have VTC units as a part of an AV room. While many of our VTC systems are of the desktop variety, we also have from 30-60% that are part of an AV room,” said Reeg. By integrating Jetbuilt, we’re now fully ready to complete Performance Work Statement documentation expeditiously and most efficiently due to the increasing demand of replacing end-of-life AV components or the increasing demand of creating new AV rooms.”

Jetbuilt has removed the need for antiquated spreadsheets while providing increased ease of collaboration with Request for Proposal. Paul Dexter, president and founder for Jetbuilt, designed the Request for Proposal feature to “Allow consultants, facility managers and technical directors to utilize the intuitive software to easily go from building rooms and systems, to define the scope of a project. Spreadsheets are outdated and our new technology allows the RFP process to be a living, breathing journey for our users and their clients, partners, and subcontractors.”

As Jetbuilt users create their Request for Proposals, they can manage photos, drawings and documents associated with the project and effortlessly drop in products from the Jetbuilt database before budgeting their projects and finally creating and delivering a high-end, comprehensive RFP. Then, the project can be shared with vendors to allow for straightforward and immediate collaboration. Users can chat as they work together to refine their project – while the original project remains saved. This allows the project to evolve while working with a selected vendor.

Jetbuilt Introduces iPad App

Jetbuilt Introduces iPad App

AV proposals just got more portable with Jetbuilt

Newport Beach, Calif. – August 29, 2016 – Jetbuilt, a provider of industry-leading web-based Mac and PC AV proposal and estimation software, is making AV estimating and proposal building easier and more portable than ever with the introduction of the Jetbuilt iPad app. The new iPad app from Jetbuilt, set to launch at CEDIA 2016, will be available at no additional cost for Jetbuilt users.

 Jetbuilt’s iPad app was designed as a companion product that focuses directly on the client – helping integrators build a project alongside their client. Users can create a new project quickly, with a minimal number of fields, to keep things moving fast. Once projects are created, it’s simple to assign rooms and systems from a roster of user defaults or custom fields. Then, items or assemblies can be dragged into to any room in the project. By creating ‘Bundles’ and ‘Favorites,’ the cost, shipping and labor values are already attached to the item and calculated, allowing clients to view their project with the total cost displayed. Users can click on a room or system to "Mute" it and remove the pricing, providing the client a transparent way to select the features they want within the budget they like. Once a project is created to the client’s liking, they can sign to buy, allowing them to buy the project on the spot or the user can email the proposal to the client. Meanwhile, each project created with Jetbuilt’s iPad app is instantly available those back at the office, allowing them to contribute to projects in real-time.  

“We know our users are increasingly relying on their iPads for their day-to-day business,” said Paul Dexter, founder and chief executive officer for Jetbuilt. “We wanted to ensure that we can deliver a fast client consultation solution which pairs with the power of Jetbuilt in the office. We think our users are truly going to like the latest tool we have to offer and we invite those that are unfamiliar with our software to give it a try.”

Additionally, Jetbuilt users can take photos of the project and upload them in real-time, where they will be placed into Jetbuilt’s ‘Asset’ portal. Users can simply use the iPad app on a consultation to take project photos and populate various items discussed and finish the proposal later through the web software. While Jetbuilt is built for projects of all sizes, the iPad app was designed for small to medium residential projects and small commercial projects, such as restaurants and retails. 

Visit Jetbuilt in booth 8205 at CEDIA 2016 in Dallas, Texas from September 15th to 17th to learn about their industry-leading and web-based AV estimation and proposal software and see first-hand just how simple it is to create a proposal.

Jetbuilt Launches International Version of Popular AV Estimating Software

Jetbuilt Launches International Version of Popular AV Estimating Software

Creates professional web-based AV proposals on Apple and PC platforms

 

Costa Mesa, Calif. – December 07, 2015 – Jetbuilt, a provider of industry-leading and web-based AV estimation and proposal software, is pleased to announce the release of the international version of its software. 

Jetbuilt launched the US version in June 2015 and international integrators soon saw the benefits of the web-based, platform agnostic AV proposal software. As the only comprehensive AV proposal software that works on MacOS, integrators from Africa, South America, Canada, the UK and other locations gravitated to the Jetbuilt solution for easy, accurate proposals with elegant presentations. The international version includes currency options, default tax rates by country and the ability to label the tax fields (VAT, sales tax, labor tax, etc.).  It uses the Queen’s English and includes products used in the global market. Over 25% of JetBuilt’s current customer base is now international dealers. 

Everything in Jetbuilt is done moving forward, never requiring the user to go to the ‘basement’ of the application to setup items or clients in advance. Anything can be added on the fly while estimating a project. The Jetbuilt AV proposal and estimating software works on either a Mac or PC and includes a robust database of products that are updated by the Jetbuilt team as manufacturers release new products. Integrated dealer pricing is managed via manufacturer authentication, by directly adding prices to a project, or uploading price sheets to Jetbuilt for free data entry to the dealer account. Integrators can include their own labor and design rates which the software then recalls for subsequent proposals. Users can bundle their go-to systems and packages and drop them into future projects with one step. Additional features include automated location-based sales tax, integration with QuickBooks, budget tracking, team collaboration and auto data fill-ins. The custom presentation tools allow dealers to create an elegant, professional customer proposals using simple drag-and-drop technology. 

“Part of our ethos is listening to our customers and giving them the tools they need to make their jobs easier. Our dealers are now spending 15 minutes to create a proposal that used to take three to four hours,” said Paul Dexter, founder and designer of Jetbuilt. “Our users receive free updates every single week based on dealer input. The international version of the software is an evolution that our dealers requested. Jetbuilt’s mission is for dealers to spend less time building proposals and more time making money.” 

Jetbuilt features a dashboard to track their pipeline, clients, proposal status and budgeting which allows integrators to track profits and margins from each project. Additionally, Jetbuilt allows collaboration and access to team member’s progress, whether they’re in the adjacent cubicle or across the country.
