The ConGenius Story

The ConGenius Story

The concept for ConGenius started in 2011 when our founder, Ben Walsh, saw some of the challenges his dad faced as a designer and builder in the Chicagoland area. From there, the idea evolved and the confidence to build ConGenius came to fruition when Ben created and operated his own remodeling company, “Brother Builders” from 2016-2021 in the Springfield, Missouri area.

Ben was able to connect with other people in the construction space, use other software tools on the market, and see firsthand that his vision could work. In order for Ben to operate his small construction company professionally, he was needing to leverage nine different software or technology solutions.

One of the greatest challenges for contractors who are in the earlier stages of operating their business is estimating. Estimating jobs can be complex and time-consuming. Being able to bid accurately and quickly is one of the tasks that can be difficult to master, especially for the contractor that is also in charge of building, selling, finances, and back office work.

When looking at existing estimating software, it can be too time intensive to see the benefit, is not built for solo or small construction companies, or isn’t powerful enough to estimate effectively. ConGenius is changing that. Powerful, effective, and intuitive software built for individuals and small businesses so that they can thrive.
