The Power of Consistency using a Roofing Software

May 15, 2014 | By |

Roofing SoftwareWhen it comes to running a successful roofing business, one of the most powerful tools you have is the kind of experience you provide for your customers and tracking those customers in a roofing software.  And when it comes to customer experience, consistency is key.  In fact, providing a consistent experience is so critical to creating long-lasting relationships with customers and generating high profit referrals being consistent is more important than being the best.

Here’s what I mean.  Think about the businesses you frequent every day.  When you go into Home Depot, you know what to expect, no matter which store you go to.  You know there will be a section for lumber, a section for plumbing, and a special contractor’s desk where you can place large orders and get special contractor discounts.   For lunch, you could order a Big Mac meal from any McDonald’s in the state and the meal you get, the time it took to get it, and your overall customer experience would be virtually identical.  This is what it looks like to provide a consistent customer experience.

Look at virtually any highly successful service business and you will see a pattern of consistency.  The businesses that continue to add new names to their list of satisfied references understand that today’s customers are doing their research before choosing the contractor that will get their business.  They want to know what they are going to get for their hard-earned money.  They want to feel confident that any company they hire is going to deliver on what they promise.

IRS Cracks Down on Contractors! Protection using a Construction CRM Software

May 1, 2014 | By |

MaxCon construction CRM software helps account for all documents and information needed in IRS audits for contractors

As anyone who works in construction knows, not every company classifies salespeople, canvassers, project managers, and other workers correctly. Face it, no one wants to pay more taxes than they have to and many independent contractors enjoy the benefits of being able to write off expenses such as cell phones, mileage, and home offices. For years, it has been commonplace for contractors to pay salespeople, canvassers and project managers as “independent contractors, but now the IRS, state governments and the department of labor are cracking down hard on employers who aren’t following the rules.

With an increasing number of contractors being fined steep penalties it is more important than ever to understand the difference between an employee and a legitimate independent contractor. Recently the Department of Labor fined three construction companies more than $100,000 in addition to ordering them to pay back wages to almost 100 employees totaling nearly $500,000. Read More

Converting sales leads : a fast track to improving construction profits.

Seven Sales Tips: Lead nurturing to grow a Construction Business

October 22, 2013 | By |

For the construction business, nurturing customers leads to growth.

The most valuable thing in the construction business is existing clients. In today’s tight economy and aggressive competition it is definitely a buyers’ market.  So, personal selling techniques are the keys to growth.

Here are some valuable tips that I’ve learned from my construction business experience to grow and nurture your construction clients.  While sales management in a specialty trade such as roofing construction can be better organized with tools and customer relationship management CRM software, there’s nothing like the on-the-ground personal connection fostered by an experienced sales professional.

  1. Customer Focus:
    The client has to be your only focus all day from open to close. How are you going to “WOW” them? I like to call it “delivering a world-class client experience”, to every guest, EVERY TIME”!
  2. Treat all prospects and clients the same:
    The concept behind customer focus is to treat every client the same.  Do not pre-judge them of show special treatment from one to the other. In doing this you will ensure repetition and efficiency because each client feeling attended to in a personal way is what makes a client happy and feeling special. Read More

Construction Companies Tackle Problems with Construction Software

Management Problems in Construction Companies

If it isn’t bad enough that the economy has taken such a hit on the construction industry, how do you deal with internal operational problems? Running a construction company requires so much more than just knowing how to construct a home or business facility. Management inefficiencies will lead to lost profits, stressed and overworked employees, and unhappy customers. Though the list of problems could go on and on , I cover here are some of the most common problems.

Multiple client files that lead to disorganization.

This is done when numerous departments create separate files for the same customer, although their intentions are good this causes serious confusion since none of the files have the same information. Not only does it create internal disorganization but it spills out showing to both customers and suppliers.

Management CRMCrew utilization can be the largest single problem

Crew utilization can be the largest single problem to make your profits disappear. Production scheduling problems is that of keeping crews working and minimizing downtime. Any inadequate system you have, rather it is physical paperwork or not; the crews can get lost in the process and not be utilized properly. Crews show up at the wrong job site on the wrong day, materials not ordered on time or at all and the crews are sent home.

Communications problems from reliance on paper based systems

Communications problems emerge when management continues to rely on paper based systems  departments to track inventory, sales & marketing, account & payroll, operations,and production. Prevent confusion by maintaining consistent and reliable communications.

One solution: construction management software.
