CHICAGO, IL and ST. LOUIS, MO July 15, 2014:
Richards Building Supply Co. (Richards) and Bridge Software LLC (Bridge) announced today that they have signed a license agreement for Stagistics, a construction management software platform for materials suppliers and contractors developed by Bridge. In a first for the contracting industry, the partnership will allow Stagistics to access Richards’ inventory management system so that Richards may offer its customers the ability to seamlessly and easily place orders through the Stagistics platform.
Construction management is inherently complicated given the many different constituents to coordinate and the large volume of information to communicate. In particular, the communication between contractors and their suppliers is paramount. Miscommunication can lead to cascading problems when orders are delivered on the wrong date, to the incorrect address or with the wrong materials. Despite the potential for such adverse consequences, traditional interaction between contractors and their suppliers is ripe for error because orders are typically phoned or faxed in to the supplier who then has to manually input the order.
Stagistics was developed to address the problem of miscommunication between contractors and their suppliers. By integrating with Richards’ internal inventory management system, Stagistics will allow Richards’ customers to see real-time pricing and inventory information, which will enable the contractor to provide more accurate estimates. The contractor can, at the click of a button, turn an estimate into an order that will be uploaded directly into Richards’ inventory system. In addition, deliveries dates and locations can be scheduled through the Stagistics platform. With Stagistics, paperwork is eliminated, time is freed up and errors are avoided.
"Stagistics bridges the contractor and the distributor by allowing contractors to place orders directly into our system," said David Brush, chief executive officer and president of Richards Building Supply. "With Stagistics, we can offer our customers a service platform that no one else is providing, and we will save processing time and order entry time while reducing problems due to miscommunication. The team at Bridge understands a contractor’s challenges and has built a very unique platform. I am thrilled about the potential associated with this new technology tool."
Richards operates through 52 locations and is currently rolling out the Stagistics program in five branches (Ballwin and O’Fallon, MO, Columbus, OH, Joliet, IL, and West Allis, WI) where Richards already has customers using an earlier, non-integrated version of the software. In addition, Richards will seek to identify across all of its markets mid-size or larger contractors who have embraced technology as potential new Stagistics users. The term of the license agreement between Richards and Bridge is for one year with automatic one-year renewals unless otherwise terminated by either party.
"I am thrilled to enter into our first license agreement for Stagistics with Richards Building Supply," said Mike Braun, founder, chief executive officer and president of Bridge Software. "I have known Richards for years, and they were early to see how they could better serve their customers by connecting with them through technology. Our partnership with Richards is groundbreaking, but it is just a first step on Stagistics’ mission to improve the way the construction industry works by opening communication lines all along the value-chain."
Richards Building Supply Co is a family owned, wholesale distributor of building material serving 13 states with 52 locations primarily in the Chicago and surrounding Midwest areas, but extending to the Great Plains, the New York City suburbs and certain mid-Atlantic states. Richards has been in business since 1978, and it stocks a comprehensive line of products such as residential and commercial roofing, siding, windows, decking, soffit, doors, moulding, rainware, cabinets, and more!

St. Louis, Missouri April 22, 2014: Bridge Software LLC (Bridge), a Brentwood-based provider of construction management and supply chain software, recently closed on an investment of $400,000 from Jesse Chase of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. In addition, Mr. Chase has joined the Board of Directors of Bridge, expanding it from four to five members. Bridge Software’s first product, Stagistics, was released in beta form in late 2013 to a small group of users.
"We are very excited by the strong statement of support that Jesse’s investment makes in Bridge," said Mike Braun, Founder and CEO of Bridge. "Jesse was the first contractor to sign up with Stagistics as a beta test partner. Since then he and his team have provided invaluable feedback that has allowed Bridge to repeatedly improve Stagistics with added features and simpler user interfaces than had existed before. Jesse’s decision to invest in Bridge and join our board is a huge vote of confidence in Stagistics. In addition, this capital will allow us to expand our marketing effort and increase our staff. We plan to add two more programmers to our team bringing our full-time operating staff to seven from just three in January."
Jesse Chase is a successful entrepreneur with interests in investment management, construction, real estate and auto dealerships. He founded ARC Restoration and Contracting in 2006 as a full service restoration company specializing in fire, water, mold, wind and hail damage restoration. Today, ARC operates in 5 states, and Mr. Chase relies upon Stagistics as his software platform for managing his business.
"I believe in what Mike and his team are doing with Stagistics. I tried many of the other competing programs on the market and nothing else addressed the real world needs of my company," said Mr. Chase. "By connecting the remodeling industry on one platform, Stagistics is improving the way remodeling works for everyone involved. From property owners all the way up to the manufacturers of building materials, Stagistics is connecting the remodeling industry like never before."
St. Louis, Missouri August 20, 2013: Technology start-up Bridge Software LLC (Bridge), a St. Louis based provider of construction management software, recently closed its first major investment. Geoffrey G. Jones of New York, New York provided a $200,000 equity investment and joined the company as Executive Vice President of Marketing and Finance. In addition, Bridge expanded its Board of Directors to four members with the addition of former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico James R. Jones.
"We are very excited to have received this key round of financing," said Mike Braun, Founder and CEO of Bridge. "This capital will allow us to market our product and expand our staff. We plan to add two more programmers to our team bringing our operating staff to seven from just one in January. I am equally excited about adding Geoffrey and Ambassador Jones to the Bridge team. Geoffrey’s background compliments my own and will allow me to focus on product and customer development while he takes on responsibility for marketing and finance. In addition, Ambassador Jones’ experience on the boards of companies both large and small will allow him to offer valuable advice as Bridge expands in the coming years."
Geoffrey G. Jones comes to Bridge from GardCap Advisory Services, a firm he created to offer financial and strategic advice to entrepreneurs and small businesses. Prior to that, he worked at Baron Capital as a Vice President and Senior Research Analyst where he oversaw investments in the media and energy sectors. Geoffrey began his career at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette where he rose to become a Vice President and the senior equity research analyst covering the broadcasting sector. He earned his undergraduate and MBA degrees from Stanford University.
"I am thrilled to join Mike and his team at Bridge Software," said Mr. Jones. "While I had a great 15 year career as a Wall Street analyst, I have known for some time that I wanted to sit on the other side of the table helping to build something from the ground up. I also knew that I would only do so with the right partner offering a quality product to a large market. I believe I have found all three of these requirements in Bridge, and I look forward to helping Mike capitalize on his vision and grow the company."
Ambassador James R. Jones brings with him to the Board of Directors a lengthy resume and a wealth of both public and private experience. His public career includes roles as the youngest White House Chief of Staff at age 28 for President Lyndon B. Johnson, 7 terms in the U.S. Congress representing the 1st District of Oklahoma (including 4 years as Chairman of the House Budget Committee) and 4 years as the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico under President William J. Clinton. In the private sector, Ambassador Jones has served as the Chairman and CEO of the American Stock Exchange and President of Warnaco International. He is currently Chairman and CEO of ManattJones Global Strategies where he provides advice on international trade, investment and commerce, business-government relations and financial services with a focus on Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. Ambassador Jones currently serves as Chairman of the Board of GlobeRanger, a RFID software company, and as a Director of San Luis Rassini, a Mexican auto parts supplier. In addition, he has served on numerous other boards including Anheuser-Busch, Kansas City Southern, Equitable Life Assurance and KeySpan Energy. Ambassador Jones is the father of Geoffrey G. Jones.
"I am pleased to join the board of Bridge Software," said Ambassador Jones. "I have moved around quite a bit in my career and lived through many construction projects where I have seen first hand the need for better coordination to make the process more efficient. Mike has a unique understanding of the contracting business and is charting Bridge to address a clear opportunity. As a member of the board, I will offer my experience to help the company grow in a manageable way and avoid the pitfalls that befall many small businesses."
Bridge Software LLC was formed in January 2013 to provide integrated software solutions to the construction and remodeling industry. In 2013, Bridge released its first product, Stagistics (www.stagistics.com), in beta mode to a small group of contractors and suppliers. Bridge is currently receiving, analyzing and addressing feedback from its initial test customers with a plan to roll out to a larger group of contractors and suppliers in the coming months.
Construction management is very complicated and the fragmented nature of the industry doesn’t help. To finish even a small project, a contractor may have to involve his or her sales team, back office administrative staff, 2 or 3 subcontractors, a building materials supplier and possibly a materials manufacturer. Without a system in place to share information and view each stage of the project, contractors spend most of the day putting out fires and calling each partner to find out where they are with the project instead of growing their business. Stagistics makes the coordination and logistical hurdles of a construction project simple. By integrating with consumers, suppliers, subcontractors and manufacturers, Stagistics can provide real time information to everyone involved in a construction project all on one platform. Stagistics isn’t just project management for contractors; Stagistics is an integrated Big Data solution for the construction and remodeling industry. Stagistics is changing the way the construction industry works.
