Why Us / Company

History

Digital Canal Corporation began operations in December of 2001 as the result of purchasing the Building Design Divisions from NASDAQ listed as Eagle Point Software.

Digital Canal is a time proven and tested market leader. Our Award-Winning software and services have stood the test of time. 11,000+ clients worldwide and a being a 30+ year exhibitor at NAHB provide confirmation that what we do is helping our clients grow their businesses and their profits.

We are excited about our future. As an entrepreneurial company we will always focus our efforts on you, our clients.

We recognize that to grow our company we must help you grow yours. To increase our profits, we must help you increase yours. It’s a simple entrepreneurial formula but a powerful one.

Buy Direct, Save Money

They say the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.

At Digital Canal, we make a “straight line” from you to us by cutting out the middleman. At Digital Canal, we deal directly with you, bypassing dealers and their 40% markups.

We want to hear from you

Our President’s personal email address is egraham@digitalcanal.com.

Send him your input, suggestions, etc. he welcomes your feedback. We continuously strive to improve our products and services so suggestions are always welcome.

Facilities

We’re located in Dubuque Iowa, on the banks of the Mississippi River.

In December of 2001 the company moved into our new facility, which was built in 1916. The business park is now named Fountain Park and the complex was renovated recently.

The entire complex includes an Italianate mansion (which housed priests at one time), a church and a convent (which Digital Canal now occupies).

Award winning support

We believe we are the best in the business. Surveys indicate that 92% of our clients rate our support as good, very good or excellent.

 

We don’t push our support on to dealers, nor do we subcontract it out – it’s not glamorous, but we’re convinced it makes the difference.

We want an ongoing relationship with your business

We are located in Iowa – and maybe it seems old-fashioned in this day and age, but we still believe having a relationship with a client matters.

For example, all our upgrade ideas come from our clients – we help you, you help us. Pretty simple equation – sound like a partnership to you?

Our mission

Our mission at Digital Canal is simple: to help our clients become the most successful in the industry.

The difference between SolidBuilder Design Software and our BidBuilder Estimating Software is all about what you are required to perform for your prospect …

If you are creating the design and blueprints, then SolidBuilder Design Software will create a takeoff from your design as you design it.

BidBuilder estimating software is used when you are NOT designing. BidBuilder is used when you are asked to bid a project based on blue prints / plan drawings.

Our Estimating Software (BidBuilder) provides the ability to digitally perform a takeoff (point and click on the plan) and create a professional estimate straight from a set of plans. To see how our Estimating Software works and view Reports, Proposals and more sample output click Continue below.
