How Concrete Software Helps Contractors
There are a number of concrete software solutions currently on the market that claim to cater to concrete contractors. However, TRUE Contractor is the concrete software solution that actually delivers on that promise. With the all-in-one subcontractor software, users are able to manage all of their business workflows from initially capturing a lead to creating the invoice and processing the final payment. TRUE is also key in managing back office operations like time clock, payroll, scheduling, equipment tracking and much more!
Lead Management & CRM
Every customer starts as a lead, because of this it is important to begin the process as smoothly as possible. By using the CRM Module in TRUE Contractor, you can quickly capture new leads and create complete contact records with all of the pertinent information related to the prospect. Once a lead is entered into TRUE Contractor, the solution helps track the sales cycle and activities for each record. Then when a lead is won, that contact record can be easily be converted into an account for creating quotes and invoices.
Estimates & Orders
Creating professional looking, detailed quotes and orders is easy with TRUE; especially with the new TRUE Contractor Concrete Calculator. To create an estimate, users enter dimensions of an area, as well as the per unit cost of the material and TRUE will calculate the square footage of the area and the cost associated with paving, sealcoating or pouring concrete for that given area to create detailed line items. After completing the quote by adding all the necessary line items, users can convert that quote into a work order in one simple step.
Invoices & Payments
In TRUE Contractor, users are able to easily generate invoices from time clock entries and other line items from existing orders. These invoices contain account information, line items, cost centers, due date, payment terms, account balance and more. With the eForms function, TRUE Contractor will generate a PDF of the invoice for sharing with clients. Not only does our concrete software create invoices but it can also process check payments as well as process credit card payments through the Stripe Point of Sale Integration.
For concrete contractors who are tired of schedules made in Excel spreadsheets or on whiteboards, concrete software can help! With TRUE, contractors are able to create schedules based on worker availability, work orders, and key locations. The systems can then be set to automatically alert workers by email, text message, or system notification when they are scheduled for work. Using maps, the worker can then plan their route efficiently.
Time Clock & Payroll
Time tracking and payroll can be a pain point for any organization, concrete contractors are no different. There are multiple employees with different roles, working on different projects across numerous sites with varying payroll activities. With concrete software, tracking time and labor is much easier for everyone involved.
Employees are able to use the desktop or mobile version of TRUE or TRUE Time to make time punches. These time punches can be for a Division, Facility, Order, Project or Work Ticket and then assigned to the appropriate cost center. Management can even track what was done during the punch with payroll activity, punch type, and additional notes from the punch.
Vehicle & Equipment Tracking
Concrete Contractors often purchase or rent vehicles and specialty equipment to complete their work. These items are company assets that must be tracked and maintained. In TRUE Contractor, the Vehicle & Equipment Module is incredibly helpful because of the many features it offers. Assignment Logs are generated to track operators, tools assigned to the vehicle and the inventory put on the vehicle. You can also track fuel usage, maintenance history and requirements, and preventative maintenance scheduling. Users can also set up tracking and alerts for expirations for registration, warranty & insurance to prevent any lapses.
There are many features and modules in TRUE Contractor are designed specifically to support the business needs of concrete contractors. For more information about what TRUE has to offer Concrete Contractors, please schedule a demo at www.constructtrue.com/#contact.
