At BuildingConnected, we believe that the entire construction industry benefits when we work together to make smarter decisions about risk. It’s why we invested in TradeTapp (our subcontractor prequalification platform), which helps general contractors identify and mitigate risk earlier in the preconstruction process.
It’s also why we work closely with industry partners to provide the best possible risk management solution. Today, tackling risk is a shared endeavor, and our partners — from leading SDI carriers to the top insurance brokers — understand that. As builders’ advocates and trusted advisors, these companies have a vested interest in collaborating with technology partners like us to help customers tackle risk more effectively.
Today, BuildingConnected is excited to announce a new partnership with McGriff, Seibels & Williams, one of the most progressive construction insurance brokerage firms in the U.S. Moving forward, McGriff, Seibels & Williams will provide TradeTapp to their customers at no additional cost, empowering them to expand the scope of their subcontractor risk analysis and make better mitigation decisions.
“McGriff is very pleased to begin this partnership with TradeTapp. As an industry leader in construction risk management, our team relentlessly seeks creative and innovative solutions to the issues facing our clients,” said Mark Edwards, Senior Vice President of Surety at McGriff, Seibels & Williams. “With TradeTapp, McGriff is aligned with another industry leader in our field who shares the desire to deliver unparalleled value to their clients. We believe leveraging TradeTapp’s technology will greatly enhance our client’s ability to manage subcontractor risk.”
McGriff recognizes that many of TradeTapp’s unique features — like automated risk assessments, mitigation recommendations, and project-specific evaluations — allow general contractors and owners to reduce risk more efficiently than ever before. TradeTapp’s integrations with BC Pro, ERP, and accounting systems enable general contractors to make more strategic decisions about risk during the procurement phase. By delivering these insights to customers earlier on in the preconstruction process, TradeTapp and McGriff aim to make the industry safer for everyone.
