Whether your jobs are small and simple, or large and complex, managing the details effectively is critical to maximizing profitability.
Creating winning bids, tracking job costs, scheduling field resources and generating accurate, timely invoices all feed into a successful job. For profitable service delivery, you need easy access to reliable data – in a centralized platform.
The right ERP software ensures you achieve that. You can easily manage all aspects of your jobs in one place – inventory, materials, job costing, scheduling, equipment, sales, invoicing and much more.
ERP software enables you to simplify processes across your business, so you can accomplish more with fewer resources. Connecting your teams in one system eliminates the back and forth between your field team and office staff, so you can deliver more jobs on time and on budget.
Interested in growing your industrial services business? Here’s how ERP software helps:
Use historical costs on comparable jobs to refine the accuracy of your bids and help you close more business.
Cost your jobs more accurately by tracking time and materials to the job as they’re used – in the office or in the field using simple browser applications.
Upgrade your field teams from paper-based forms that get easily lost in the shuffle. Easy-to-use browser applications allow you to track time, materials and job notes in the moment for up to date information.
Use intuitive tools to assign the right resources to the right jobs. Easily identify scheduling conflicts and resources that are under or over utilized so you can adjust plans proactively.
Contract management tools make it easy to track billing milestones and phases on each job without the hassle of spreadsheets. With automatic flow-through of costs from the job to your accounting team, you can speed up invoicing and collect payment faster.
Get a clear picture of your top metrics across the entire business in a single dashboard. In just a few minutes, you can check gross margin by job, resource utilization, schedule and cost variances, and more.
Streamlining operations and giving your team easy access to real-time job information enables you to stay competitive. A complete ERP solution helps you win more bids, control costs and deliver more profitable jobs.
