SRS Distribution enters tech partnership with Hover


SRS Distribution has entered into a partnership with Hover, a tech company that provides an end-to-end data platform for home improvement and insurance professionals.

Following the move, contractors in the SRS network can run their businesses more efficiently with precise measurements and interactive 3D models for easier visualization and estimation, according to Hover.

Hover will introduce a seamless process for ordering materials via SRS' Roof Hub tool in early 2021.

"SRS is a leading distributor in the building materials space and we're thrilled to launch HOVER to their network of independent contractors," said A.J. Altman, founder and CEO of HOVER. "The integration between Hover and Roof Hub is an exciting step towards driving better, more efficient workflows from sales through production.

Based in McKinney, Texas, Hover operates more than 370 locations in 44 states. The company is one of the largest and fastest-growing building products distributors in the United States. 

Last month, SRS announced the acquisitions of CB Wholesale in Washington and RSI Building Products of Louisiana. 

Regarding the partnership with Hover, SRS chairman and CEO said, "As a company dedicated to driving digital transformation in the building industry, integrating HOVER into our services was a no-brainer.”

SRS contractors can leverage Hover's easy-to-use app to drive efficiency and transparency into the workflow – delivering to-the-inch accurate measurements of buildings' exteriors, optimizing the estimate process, and providing a superior experience for homeowners.

The platform also provides contractors with additional tools such as interactive 3D blueprints to establish trust with existing clients and attract new customers.

"The technology will give our contractors more confidence in the estimation and ordering process, stronger transparency and trust with homeowners, and ultimately lead to higher close rates and sales of premium products,” Tinker said.

Launching in early 2021, Hover's e-commerce integration will allow precise measurements to flow directly into SRS' Roof Hub solution for seamless material ordering, introducing an added layer of efficiency and ease.
