Does Your Roofing Software Play Well With Others?

Speed up your workflow, reduce operational costs and let your business grow with software integration.

There isn’t a single software capable of doing everything for your business. That’s why integrations between software programs are important to utilize and understand. If your programs cannot communicate with one another and share information, then the likelihood for errors increases. To make matters worse, incorrect data and a lack in efficiency can harm your job profitability.

With a newer business, you will likely need one or two software programs to assist in tasks like customer account management or project bookkeeping. As your business scales, you’ll find yourself dealing with more customers, acquiring more data and adding more systems. To keep track of your inventory, customer data and order management, you’ll need more software programs to continue growing and operating at an efficient level.

This all leads to one thing: software integrations.

Integration is a method whereby different software systems are connected into one larger system that functions as the singular software source for your business. Software integrations have many benefits for business, like boosting efficiency in the day-to-day process and reducing operational costs.

In an e-book titled 5 Key Considerations When Choosing Estimating Software, Estimating Edge leaders Joe Pettit and Mike Mouw, instruct contractors on what they should be looking for when deciding between estimating platforms. One of their top five considerations speaks to the importance of software integrations and ensuring that the software you choose can integrate later on as your business grows.

“Think through what you need in your company, not just for today but what you think you will need three to five years down the road. Whatever you purchase will need to be able to grow with you,” advises Joe.

A business that uses a handful of systems that do not integrate well with each other will inevitably struggle with managing data effectively. This can also reduce employee productivity and hamper your team's ability to achieve goals and meet deadlines. When you chose software that seamlessly interacts with others, your business is rewarded with increased efficiency and reduced disruption from frustrating technical malfunctions.

Download the e-book to learn more about the importance of software integration and how to choose the best estimating systems that will grow with your business.
