Inline Construction used LiveCosts to:
- Save 75% of their time spent tracking costs
- Keep control of costs across their projects
- Exponentially grow their business
What Problems Was Inline Construction Having From A Business Perspective?
Because you might have 3 or 4 jobs going at any one go, if you don’t have a proper tracking software, you don’t know what job is doing well.
You might think you know, but you don’t actually know what job is you’re making your percentage off and what job you’re not.
And it all gets into one big pile and jobs just blend into each other and you don’t know which is which.
It’s dangerous enough because with construction, we find is, you don’t really know six months down the road.
You don’t know how well you’re doing or how bad you’re doing until it could be too late nearly.
Does LiveCosts Save Inline Construction Time?
It does save time. It would save us at least 16 to 20 hours a month having those costs over manual.
Because the problem is you haven’t got 40 hours a month to put into the manual end of things. So you don’t do a property.
You could be set off a day, a week, half a day, week, because it’s always done in bulk rates, because we’re going in once every week or so, clean up all the invoices and all that sort of stuff.
So it’s only an hour or two every couple of weeks, rather than having to sit down for a day a month or two days a month or whatever long it takes the project.
What Advice Would You Give To A Business Considering LiveCosts?
If you’re serious about your business and you’re serious about expanding and doing well, you need something like LiveCosts to track where you are. Otherwise, you’re never going to find out how well you’re doing if you’re overpriced and if you’re on the pricing. You’re never going to be finding your pricing properly unless you track it properly with the software.
