Residential Contractors

Residential Contractors

Time is crucial for residential home builders and re-modelers. You need to highlight problems and trends, coordinate service, and improve communication with customers and vendors. With industry-leading software designed for home builders, you can manage these inevitable difficulties efficiently and professionally.

Home Building Management Challenges

CHALLENGE
Too often, subcontractors are not on the job site when they are needed.

 

SOLUTION
A scheduling application with notification capability insures that subs are kept up-to-date each day on the progress of jobs so that they can arrive on the job site, ready to work, on the exact day they are needed.

CHALLENGE
No pre-start agreement on trade costs causes profit loss

 

SOLUTION
A purchase order system insures that you only pay what is on your Purchase Order, eliminating the need to be billed by your trade contractor, possibly at an amount higher than what was expected.

CHALLENGE
Paying trades too early and losing a sense of urgency.

 

SOLUTION
A purchase order system tied to a strong project-based scheduling system ensures that trades do not get paid before the completion of a project task.

CHALLENGE
Not keeping an accurate track of costs causes profits to leak from a job.

 

SOLUTION
Software to keep track of all of your trades and suppliers current costs and apply them to the estimating takeoff to get the most accurate cost to build a project. The additional ability to store future costs and calculate in “what if” scenarios, allows even greater flexibility in forecasting future cost increases.

CHALLENGE
Inaccurate cash flow forecasting puts a strain on finances.

SOLUTION
Tying a Purchase Order system to a schedule, containing purchase order amounts, provides the needed information to forecast cash flow.
