This free report shows building contractors how to make money consistently on their jobs.

Construction contractors looking for effective strategies to earn and save money on their projects can find a surprisingly easy solution in “How to Keep Thousands More in Your Pockets…A Guide for Contractors”. This free informative report shares techniques that can help contractors estimate jobs more accurately, so they can win more bids and complete the jobs more cost-effectively.

“Building contractors will find that this information will make a difference on how they estimate and job cost their jobs, says Nick Hurd, the guide’s author and a lead developer with Litening Software, which has been developing software for the construction industry since 1977. “If they follow the steps outlined in this report they can’t help but make money on their jobs.”

“How to Keep Thousands More in Your Pockets” is designed to help specialty, remodeling and other contractors implement a computerized job costing system they can easily adjust from job to job. “A difference of even a few cents per unit can add hundreds or even thousands of dollars when you consider the volume that even a moderate-sized contractor handles each year,” the report states. “Small errors can turn into big chunks of profit lost without you even realizing where the money is going.”

Hurd feels that “How to Keep Thousands More in Your Pockets” offers small and medium-sized contractors much-needed insight that can sharpen their business survival skills. “Most small contractors are living a hand-to-mouth existence because they don’t effectively job cost their projects.”

The report explains in detail how to use identical sections in job costing and estimating to achieve an “apples-to-apples” comparison of actual and budgeted costs. It also discusses the importance of using accounting software, such as QuickBooks, to keep track of these important details. “Our goal is to provide an estimating system that not only aids the estimating process, but also creates simplified budgets in QuickBooks so they actually track their costs,” Hurd explains. “Tracking costs and knowing what you need to charge to make money is the key to the long-term survival of small contractors.”

The estimating and tracking solutions discussed in Hurd’s guide are available as a complete solution in his company’s LiteningFast Estimating software. The product helps contractors estimate jobs more quickly, easily and accurately than manual systems. LiteningFast Estimating also creates simplified budgets in QuickBooks to make tracking job costs much easier. The popular software was introduced in 1994 and currently has 4,000 users.
