Small thought aspired the construction society alteration
We believe that new technology could be fully called as “innovation” when it has been used in the wide circumstance and make some positive impact toward numbers of people. Our software might not going to totally change the industry, if we chose to do business in an old manner as sale its at a high price to result is going to turn out as not many of people can really afford it.
The construction business platform creation started off by developed a free software for all businesses to have a chance to try it and we receive the income from our sponsors, which is new to the software and Thai construction industries. Many said we are insane, and it took years to prove our intention and Business Model.
The main reason that we could possibly develop the free software for the SMEs contractors is we got the sponsored income from whether supplier brands, modern trade manufacturers, banks and real estate owner; they combined to give us the trust and support to be another advertising channel and including arrange event person for them. All these CSR amounts that we got, we bring it back to create tools and knowledges to make all SMEs contractors to be even more stronger.
BUILK strongly being impartial platform that able to work with any brands to build a powerful society together.
