Change is needed in the building industry and we are honored to be among those ventures that are moving things in a better direction. Industry veteran and author, Jennifer Castenson, provides an insightful rundown of some important factors affecting change, including risk, trust, communication and the difference between wisdom and data.
Architects want an easier way to find expert help
87% of architects want help from manufacturers at every project stage, but 2 out of 3 give up because it's too difficult to find the right person in the right company.
They want trustworthy guidance to make informed decisions
Less than half of the architects surveyed are satisfied with the support they receive. They want timely answers from product category experts, not a sales pitch or sales pressure.
The key to better projects is early collaboration
Project teams who leverage the experience and wisdom of product category experts at the earliest stages of design, will achieve superior outcomes with less effort.
Partnering for change
We forged a national partnership with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to better understand the needs of their 94,000+ members in an effort to improve access to building product manufacturers and product expertise at the earliest stages of design.
We also partnered nationally with the American Institute of Architecture Students, (AIAS), which is made up of thousands of design students from colleges and universities across the U.S.
Additional alliances are forming across the AEC community. Stay tuned...
It's about nurturing authentic relationships
Manufacturers have the product knowledge that design professionals need. But that expertise is often locked up behind sales and marketing efforts that simply get in the way. With tect, we help design professionals connect with you early in the project cycle at the exact time product decisions are being made.
We're making it easy for you to be found.
Access projects at the earliest stages of design
Tired of chasing opportunities only to arrive late to the decision table? With the tectApp®, we remove friction and open the lines of communication, allowing earlier engagement at the moment important product decisions are being made.
Build long-term, trusted relationships
Serving design professionals is quite different than selling to contractors. The tectAcademy™ is like a Master Class on serving design professionals, and gives your team the tools and insight to become a trusted product partner for years to come.
Stand out in the locations you serve
Design professionals don't know where your products are available. With tectGeo™, you can define your territories by product category and sales rep, making it easier for decision makers to connect with your sales team based on proximity to their project location.
This is not another product directory... It's a platform where people find people.
A focused tool for architects is really nice to see. Great look and feel. Very cool.
A global solution would be good for companies like mine, since we need to deal with the same issues on every project around the world.
Wow... I like it a lot... and it's thoughtful in the way you understand the needs of an architect and have made it easy and simple.
Having access to information without entering a lot of personal data is a real plus.
Start building your network of product experts
Tect is committed to the long-term growth and health of the building industry. We recognize that today's students are tomorrow's leaders. Connecting with manufacturers and product experts early is the key to jumpstarting a great career.
We recently collaborated with architecture students from three local universities at this year's AIA Conference on Architecture in Chicago, and will continue to bring opportunities for early engagement to students across the U.S.
