Our friends at the Estimating Edge know software and they know roofing companies. They recently developed an e-book that helps roofing contractors ask the right questions when it is time to choose software for their businesses. Over the next few months, we are answering one of the questions from their e-book that should help you when deciding what software is right for your business.
With all the options that are on the market, not every product is going to be the right fit for your roofing business. The ninth question to ask is, “Will the software fit our budget?” Read on for why this is an important question.
It is not inexpensive to subscribe to new software and implement it into a roofing company. In fact, it can first appear to be expensive, but many contractors do not take the time to look at the return on investment (ROI) of adopting technology. By determining the importance of the business process that the software will improve, companies can discover a true ROI.
For example, by focusing in on redundant entries that lead to ongoing clerical mistakes, contractors can see substantial savings just by correcting these two problems. Communications can also bring a high ROI for implementing software through expediated messaging and improved communications with customers and employees. In fact, often increased closing rates and more efficient production can cover the cost of new software.
