Whether you are doing a remodel, renovation, redesign, or a repair on someone’s home, getting the job completed on time, on budget, and with as little disturbance as possible for the occupants, is important for customer satisfaction and building a good reputation as a builder. With the help of remodeling estimating software, you can achieve all of these and more. First, let’s look at what estimating software is and then we’ll explore the 4 biggest benefits it will have on your business.
Remodeling estimating software, like the one Buildxact offer, is a cloud-based platform that takes you from takeoff to invoice for each of your building proposals, quotes, and estimates. You can access it from any smartphone or computer with an internet connection. They have templates, databases, calculators and checklists to help you look more professional, win projects, and build your business’ reputation as an honest, reliable remodeler.
If for no other reason, remodeling estimating software is worth it just for the efficiency it offers. Imagine getting the admin side of your building business done 5x faster. Instead of getting one remodeling quote done you can do five, the more proposals you can get out the more job opportunities you have. Or, the more time you can spend with your family. In fact, you’ll have more time for both, family and estimating.
- Project management
You can manage all aspects of your remodeling project from the one platform. Whether it is timelines/schedules, cost tracking, progress reports, work orders, invoices, equipment tracking, laborers, or contractors everything is only an internet connection away. All communication can be conducted through the estimating app, making everyone more accountable and adding complete transparency to the project.
Providing professional looking quotes, proposals, invoices, and marketing materials used to be left to the big guns of the construction industry. Companies that have a sales and marketing team at their disposal, with money dedicated to making them look the best. The remodeler or contractor couldn’t afford to invest that kind of time and money. Now, with remodeling estimating software, even you can look as professional as the industry leaders.
