The critical differences between contracting and other businesses

Most businesses outside contracting operate:

  • from the same physical location(s)
  • with the same people group of people on an ongoing basis
  • on a transaction by transaction basis (not job by job / project by project basis)

This makes it easier for people that work in regular businesses to:

  • better know the work habits of their co-workers
  • access all kinds of business information
  • have closer supervision
  • learn to use computers
  • catch mistakes before they happen
  • get and stay organized

None of these apply to contracting. It's a different world.

The advantages of tapping into proven business systems for contractors

The profitability of every job depends on your ability to manage, organize, schedule, and communicate a wide variety of information - so does the success of any contracting business.

Chances are, you use tools by DeWalt, Milwaukee, Stanley, Porter Cable, Makita, and others. These physical tools help get the job done. Quality tools can still produce poor work in the hands of someone who doesn't know how to use them. It takes time to learn to use them properly.

Construction software systems are a new kind of tool that help get the job done. They're power tools that help manage, organize, schedule, and communicate information - and do it all efficiently, predictably, and reliably - which is what good business tools (systems) are supposed to do.

Just like any tool, it takes some time to learn to use construction software properly.

The problems with developing systems for your contracting business (and how to avoid them)

It takes a ton of work to develop systems for any business.

You need to:

  • think through and understand your businesses processes (what to systematize)
  • identify all the things that could/should be improved
  • develop systems to manage, organize, schedule, and communicate
  • test and improve the systems over time
  • employees need to be trained (more time and money)

This adds up to a pile of time, effort, and expense on top of what you already do.

No wonder so many contractors haven't systematized their businesses (even though they may have wanted to).

Developing your own business systems from scratch is a waste of your time. It would be like developing your own power tools. Why bother when it's been done for you?

The best and fastest way to systematize any business is to tap into an existing system - one that's tested, proven, and works.

Then all you do is learn to use it.

BuildIT Systems gives contractors, construction businesses, and the people they work with a fast reliable way to tap into proven business systems. Learn more...
