How to make managing your business easier.
While it seems fair to say that there are very few people out there who got into contracting because they loved the idea of being sat behind a computer all day, the fact of the matter is that we should all be doing a little better when it comes to keeping up to date with the latest software that can both drive business and save us time.
The last year has been full of challenges and hardships, and we are all working twice as hard to keep our businesses afloat, to find new clients while fostering repeat business. We need to be available and accessible. We need to be able to keep track of every little thing, and we need to make sure that we can move forward at speed. Here are just three ideas for software updates for your business that can help you meet your goals.
So, you’ve got your website all up to date with the latest information, you’ve made sure that the copy is SEO friendly, you’ve got reviews and examples of previous projects, and you’ve even got links to your social media channels. However, there’s one thing that could really help make sure that prospective clients don’t bounce away when they open your page. Chatbot software is easy to set up and can help direct visitors to where they need to go, saving you time by answering those standard frequently asked questions. Statistics show that people are more likely to stick around if they feel like they are being engaged with, and you can even set up a chatbot that can hand over to you if it’s important.
There is something very personal about putting a tender for a project together, as it’s a demonstration of your expertise and skillset, and a case for why you’re the best person for the job. As such, it makes sense that so many people are determined to go about in the old-fashioned (or rather, time-consuming) way. However, builders estimating software can save you a huge chunk of time by cutting through all the unnecessary clutter to break things down into the essentials. RapidQuote’s software runs through plans and prices to get you through take off and estimating and to the quote point quickly. All that time saved will get you crucial hours back for the really important part: actually getting the job done.
Project Management Software
When you’re juggling several different projects at once, not to mention pitching on others, it can be very easy to feel like things are starting to slip away from you. Given how chaotic the last year has been, we could all use a little extra help to stay on top of things. Project management software isn’t just for big companies with legions of separate departments. It can help you and your team stay up to date with the progress of every individual task, and it can make sure that you are all on the same page with your time keeping. From budgets to scheduling, project management software is an essential admin tool that can offer great peace of mind.
