The basic process of repairing or replacing a roof hasn’t changed much in the last several decades. It still requires someone getting on top of a house or building and physically adding shingles or other roofing materials. While there’s an art to this process and a good roofer can get the job done in no time at all, there are other aspects of roofing that can be brought into the current century. This includes adding roofing software to your business.

Technology has touched every aspect of our lives, and the roofing industry is no different. It may not have come up with a new way of adding shingles, but it can help in other aspects of the industry. Here are some ways that roofing software can have a positive impact on your business.


Track Your Jobs and Manage Production

When it comes to your roofing company, you probably have multiple jobs going on at one time. While it’s a good thing to have a lot of business, it can be challenging to keep track of each project. When you have the right software, you’ll be able to manage and track all of your roofing jobs. With a drag and drop feature, you’ll also be able to quickly and easily organize each project so that you know where you or your employees are in the process. This can also help you follow up to get new roofing jobs or collect payment when a project is finished.

Capture and Upload Photos

Being able to take photos of the job site means knowing exactly what you are getting into when it comes to repairing or replacing the roof. If you have the right roofing software, after taking those photos, you’ll be able to upload them into the job profile or share them with others. This can be incredibly beneficial if your clients are interested in seeing the amount of damage that has impacted their roof or if you need to share the photos with insurance adjusters or subcontractors. With the right software, you’ll be able to share photos quickly and easily before you leave the jobsite.

Reduce Profit Loss and Risk of Injury

Having the right technology to bring your roofing company into the current century means having software that can quickly and accurately take aerial measurements of your roofing jobs. This can save you from having to climb onto the roof, which increases your risk of injury. It can also reduce the chances of misreading your measurements and writing down the wrong number, which can lead to ordering the wrong amount of supplies.

Getting these measurements is easy and are often only a click away. Not only will this preserve your money, but it can also help you make money. If you don’t have to spend as much time at each job location taking measurements by hand, you can measure and bid a lot more jobs.

Impress Customers

The vast majority of customers that you will be working with will have the most current technology. If you want to impress them and look professional, sending them an estimate or invoice to their email could accomplish that task. You can even collect payments online, which means that you’ll get your money faster and make life more convenient for your customers.

Pat Gelsinger, CEO - Intel

Intel saw its stock tumbling by more than 8 percent after the chipmaker said the industry-wide component shortage affected its PC chip business during the third quarter (Q3). Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger told CNBC late on Thursday that he didn't expect the semiconductor shortage to end until 2023. "We're in the worst of it now, every quarter, next year we'll get incrementally better, but they're not going to have supply-demand balance until 2023," Gelsinger was quoted as saying.


The company delivered its Q3 results with revenue up 5 percent (year-over-year) driven by strong demand in its DCG and IoTG businesses, despite the highly constrained industry-wide supply environment. "Q3 revenue was $18.1 billion slightly below our guide due to shipping and supply constraints that impacted our businesses," George S. Davis, Chief Financial Officer, said in a statement. He also announced plans to retire from Intel in May 2022. In the third quarter, the company generated $9.9 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion.
