What gauge can our management team use to forecast the ROI when ProContractor is fully implemented?

The saying “you can’t manage what you can’t measure” is very appropriate when implementing software.  Contractors are not exempt from this ROI principle.  Inaccurate budgets, lack of project performance measurements and responsibility and ineffective pricing and variation management all contribute to profit leak.

So how do you measure a construction business platform and the potential cost benefits of ProContractor?

Winning More Work

  • Fully implemented ProContractor will easily result in 20% up to 50% time efficiency towards bid managing and estimating while providing clear break even budgets, claim structures and buyout strategies.

Controlling Project Profitability

  • ProContractor Project Management and Accounting full operational will deliver real-time job cost reporting which includes forecasted costs, overheads burden and earn value WIP reporting. These key reporting tools will drastically reduce profit leak providing savings over 5% for self-performing contractors and over 2% of gross revenue for head contractors.

Though these ROI measurements are not a sure thing, Quest has hundreds of customers that have proven the return on ProContractor investment.  These cost savings don’t include the intangibles like happy or engaged staff, business scalability and improved business value.
