How to take your construction business to the next level!
If you’re trying to take your business to the next level here is what you should look for and have in place before hiring sales people, estimators, project managers and bookkeepers or accountants.
What does “easy-to-use” software mean?
Is it … Easy to setup? Easy to comprehend? Or is the software so simple a caveman could use it?
What is easy for one person isn’t necessary easy for another. Many people have designed their own software because they thought the software in the market was too hard to use but only to find out that their software was hard to use by others. Again, what is easy for one person isn’t necessary easy for another as it comes down to the operator’s skill set.
There are many software applications and many manufacturers of construction software that you can invest in to help you sell more, generate more leads, build happier customers, estimate faster, create more accurate proposals, communicate more effectively with vendors and software programs that can help you make more money.
Construction jobs across the world are starting up and once again we are seeing cranes in the skyline. It’s a great sight for builders and contractors as they struggled through a gruesome 20% unemployment rate in just 2010, according to US News. Thankfully by 2012 this had already shrunk back to 13% and has been moving optimistically ever since. There are jobs to be filled in the construction industry but the descriptions of certain jobs have been altered by the computer age. With that, let’s look at some of the tools which estimators find themselves using on the job today.
You have spent hours or even weeks putting together a detailed estimate. You have presented a proposal to your customer listing out detailed job specifications by category of work with a total price. The customer signs it. Now the work begins. The problem is, you need to communicate what was sold to your customer to the vendors and employees working on the project.
Take a hard look at what your company really needs from a software package, or integrated system. What kinds of data do your managers need? What do your data entry personnel think of your existing system? make a list of your “must haves” and your “would like to haves.”Details
