Technology is the necessary tool for every contractor


October 28, 2021



Running a modern contracting company without technology is like showing up to the job site without the proper tools. Sure the job may get completed, however was it as efficient or profitable as it should’ve been?

Applications and digital tools are paving the way for service providers to increase profitability and quality of life by taking a load off your plate. 

How do I know which digital tools would help me? 

Think about your customers’ experience from start to finish.  When a customer reaches out to you, what is their experience like? 

When a new customer reaches out they should receive an immediate response with steps to make it as easy as possible for them to work with you.  As a contractor we are only paid for business closed.  Let’s ensure the first step of the process is enticing. 

For clients that use BidMyVid it could be as simple as a message like this.

How do you handle bids, contracts, receipts, paperwork

If you’re managing your business via paper it’s time to evaluate new options. 

Paper documents leave massive room for error. Not to mention they are not the most cost effective option. 

You’ll want to seek out document management systems or CRM(Client relationship management) tools.  These will help you organize all of your jobs and documents digitally and allow you to pull them up anywhere anytime.

No more forgetting documents or plans at the office when it’s all on your phone.

What communication do you continue with the client after you complete the job? 

Do you have a plan for requesting clients to leave you a review? 

What about a plan to reach back out in a few months to see if they have any additional work for you. 

It’s important to always have a review follow-up, referral job request, seasonal jobs notification and future retention communications, seasonal jobs  to be sent to the customers. 

Communicating with your clients at this level will open the door for more jobs in the future, as well as increased customer satisfaction.
