Having a simple, logical, and duplicatable estimating program that was accurate and thorough. It was highly frustrating leading me to try many different programs.
We have had to learn a new way of estimating but it is getting easier. We have a much more accurate estimate, better materials control, much better labor control, and we are profitable on every job without having to guess whether or not we would be.
Don’t do it unless you want to make more money and have a more effective business.
