Home builders and construction companies can increase revenue and create efficiencies through digital transformation. The Canada Digital Adoption Program catalyzes that process.
What’s the overlap between digital technology and running a home building, construction, or renovation business? To the outside observer, there may not appear to be much overlap; but forward-thinking business owners in the residential real estate industry can spot opportunities for digital tools to increase revenue and create efficiencies.
No industry in Canada is exempt from the societal trend towards more digital enhancements and systems in business. Customers, clients, and employees not only want, but expect you to leverage technology to create smoother and simpler experiences for all.
To stimulate digital transformation across the Canadian economy, the federal government has created the Canadian Digital Adoption Program (or CDAP) to offset the costs of digital investment for small and mid-sized businesses.
CDAP enables your business to step back, assess your technological needs and opportunities, and then build a digital transformation plan and roadmap, at essentially no cost. Through the Boost Your Business Technology Grant — one of CDAP’s funding programs — your cost of completing this formal digital assessment with the help of a third-party advisor is offset by 90 percent.
After the assessment phase, you can receive an interest-free loan of up to $100,000 to execute the plan you created. Those funds can be used to purchase software and hardware, train employees, and hire an outside advisor to help your implementation of new technology go smoothly.
CDAP presents a unique opportunity for your business to expand and grow sustainably. You can unlock all the potential of digital transformation to enhance your operations and boost your revenue, while drastically reducing the financial risks.
If you’re a home builder, you’ve no doubt seen economic challenges like rising costs and supply constraints impact to your bottom line. No single digital solution can make those pain points disappear, but a prudent digital strategy can help alleviate them.
Digital tools can support your business all along the value chain. Whether you’re investing in workplace safety or simply getting your invoices paid on time, technology can lead to more efficiency and better outcomes.
Consider these examples.
