We believe that intelligent subcontractor selection is the genesis of a successful risk management program.

Why build TradeTapp?

Twenty-five percent of specialty-trade contractors fail over a two year period. Contractor backlog commitments are at an all time high, and construction spending continues to rise. What’s it all mean? Contractor risk is at an all time high, and millions of dollars of losses are at stake.

Surveying the landscape for technology in the prequalification space, we identified three goals: 1) provide a product that uses data to drive decision making, 2) brings transparency for all stakeholders, and 3) provides ease of use in the form of a modern, beautiful platform.

What's our goal for the prequal space?

The Construction Industry lags well behind other markets when it comes to technology investment. We built our product for the prequalification workflow because of it’s chances for high impact on bottom line profitability.

What makes vendor selection unique is that it’s one of few true intersections of project operations and risk management for contractors. For our clients, the success of both is crucial to bottom line profitability. TradeTapp is about helping to manage a onerous process and saving money at the same time.

We identify lack of collaboration between contractors when it comes to vendor selection as a missed opportunity to collectively reduce each-other’s risk. With TradeTapp, we can provide our clients with access to information outside of their own network in order to better understand the risks they take on.

What's it like working for TradeTapp?

We care deeply about our product, and take immense pride in our work. We subscribe to the theory of building an application like a marathon, not a sprint, and take the time to do things the right way the first time so they won’t break as we grow. Less than six months after we started developing TradeTapp we pushed the first iteration of our platform into live production and haven’t looked back since. Honest feedback from our clients has helped shape TradeTapp into what it is today, and will continue to do so long into the future.
