Home renovation and design platform Houzz has confirmed the acquisition of ConX, a SaaS takeoff and estimation tool.

The ConX software enables contractors to do on-screen takeoffs from construction plans and turn them into professional estimates.

As a result of the acquisition, the software is now fully integrated and available in Houzz Pro, the all-in-one marketing and business management software.

According to Houzz, contractors can streamline the estimation process and turn bids around faster with Houzz Pro Takeoffs.

In addition, takeoffs created in Houzz Pro can be directly converted into estimates, as part of the Houzz Pro project management workflow.

Commenting on the move, Alon Cohen, Houzz co-founder and president, said: “We’re excited to bring the power of ConX’s takeoff tool to contractors using Houzz Pro, and to welcome ConX’s customers around the world to the Houzz community.

“Creating estimates can be incredibly time intensive for contractors. By providing fully integrated, easy-to-use Houzz Pro Takeoffs, we’re helping pros to efficiently manage and grow their businesses, and spend less time on back-office work.”

Annie Slattery, ConX co-founder and CEO, said: “We are thrilled to join forces with Houzz in their mission to create the best software for construction and design.

“It is incredibly exciting to see ConX’s tools built into the end-to-end Houzz Pro offering, helping contractors around the world run efficient, profitable businesses.”

Houzz Pro Takeoffs is applicable to builders, renovators, and speciality contractors in the construction industry.

The software is available in more than 10 countries across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
