Raiven & BuildOps Partner to Automate & Digitize Purchasing & Operations for Commercial Contractors in Electrical, HVAC, & Plumbing


January 29, 2024

Raiven, the leading group purchasing program and procurement software platform for contractors, is proud to announce its new partnership with BuildOps, a leading provider of sales, field service, and project management solutions for commercial contractors. This collaboration marks a significant leap forward for both companies in their shared mission to help contractors save time and money as well as gain a competitive advantage.

Unlocking Efficiency Through Technology

BuildOps offers commercial contractors an all-in-one, cloud-based management software that drives their sales, service, and projects all from a single platform. “In addition to the cost and operational efficiencies BuildOps provides its customers, Raiven will offer our contractors immediate savings on everything they purchase,” said Glen West, Head of Growth at BuildOps. “It’s a no-brainer for contractors that want to save money.”

Raiven provides commercial contractors with deep discounts on equipment and materials from industry-leading suppliers as well as procurement software that makes buying fast and easy. Raiven aggregates the purchasing volume of all its members and negotiates exclusive pricing and service-level agreements with manufacturers and distributors. With over $1B in buying power, members routinely see savings of 7% to 30%.

Empowering Contractors to Thrive

“Contractors today have significant challenges. They are trying to grow their business profitably but are dealing with the headwinds of rising costs, lingering supply chain issues, and a skilled labor shortage in the field and office,” noted Brett Knox, CEO of Raiven. “Our purpose is to help contractors win more jobs and make more profit on each job by reducing the prices they pay for equipment and materials, so they gain a competitive advantage on their bids and bottom-line.”

“One of the biggest challenges for large contractors with branches in multiple states is improving purchasing compliance and reducing rogue spending,” added Knox. “We overcome this by offering a cloud-based private marketplace that enables contractors and their employees to digitally buy from their own preferred suppliers and ours in one platform, no matter where they’re located.”

“Every project and work order has labor and materials,” said West, “We are excited to jointly offer the industry’s first solution to drive down costs and improve efficiencies for both components.”
