Cardiff based PropTech specialist GlobalX are celebrating after winning a Housebuilder Product award for their BuildX property search solution.

The awards, which are supported by the National House Building Council and Home Builders Federation, were judged by a panel of experts from the construction sector including representatives from the CPA, BBA and leading housebuilders.

GlobalX’s BuildX solution has helped developers reduce the time from exchange to completion by, on average, three weeks by making property information easily available to all parties involved in the home buying process.

“18 months ago, our property sales manager, Victoria Hurst came to me with an idea to dramatically reduce the amount of time it took us to conduct property searches on new builds,” CEO, Mark Allwood, explains.

“We were fortunate enough that Barratts Wales were willing to let us trial our solution on one of their sites, allowing us to refine the idea and create an even better end product.”

The success of the pilot programme led to agreements with five out of the top 10 national housebuilders is currently being used across over 100 sites nationally.

Having won Best Business Product, they have also been shortlisted for the best product category at the overall Housebuilder Awards in October.
