HOVER just launched Direct Ordering, giving home improvement professionals the ability to place orders directly with leading distributors from within the HOVER platform. HOVER is partnering with some of North America’s largest building supply distributors on Direct Ordering including ABC Supply, Beacon Building Products, and SRS Distribution.
With these Direct Ordering partnerships, HOVER offers contractors a comprehensive set of solutions that extends well beyond measuring, visualizing, and estimating a home project. Using precise measurements created with HOVER’s 3D model, Direct Ordering calculates material quantities, instantly prepares a material list, and places the order with a contractor’s preferred distributor. The automated ordering process takes into account a contractor’s unique pricing and installation preferences. It brings contractors a level of dependability in their material list calculations that drills into details like what type of roof their company installs on 2/12 pitch roofs or the specific SKU and color options they sell. Direct Ordering offers a single, connected digital experience from measuring to ordering, eliminating the need for manual entry or using multiple platforms to complete an order.
"HOVER has made the previously difficult process of accurately measuring and pricing roofing and siding projects simple. It allows us to train new sales representatives faster so we can easily scale our business across locations. An integration with our preferred distributor will now allow us to streamline our ordering process by placing an order with one click, instead of breaking down measurements to manually create an order. Not only will orders be sent quicker and with more accuracy, but less time doing administrative work means more time developing our staff and delighting our customers. This is the definition of a win-win and it will be a game changer for us.”

Supply chain related delays, increasing homeowner demand for roofing renovation and repair, and the ever-present need for cost-saving efficiencies have put pressure on exterior home improvement contractors over the last few years. HOVER’s Direct Ordering capability means jobs can be completed more quickly and efficiently, giving back time to contractors to focus on their business and do more jobs.
Building material distributors are excited to offer their customers a more streamlined experience through HOVER’s Direct Ordering. Since orders are submitted digitally with reliable and consistent accuracy, it makes fulfilling material orders simpler, faster and more efficient for everyone.
"We’re excited to partner with the leading material distributors in the industry to bring to market a solution that streamlines ordering for all stakeholders involved. By leveraging Direct Ordering, our partners will enhance their customer service to contractors and create a more efficient, accurate way to place orders digitally.”
