Seeing how contractors run multiple business processes daily, and struggle through the chaos, Builder-Remodeler Mike Bruno jumps on the opportunity to offer a solution. Having known the ins and outs of the industry for over 27 years, Bruno launches Contractor Business Solutions as "the go-to" virtual assistant (VA) service provider for contractors.
“We understand how the day of the contractor works, and how it’s quickly filled with disarray – weather delays, inspection delays, client delays, employee issues, subcontractors not showing up on time, and so on. It’s already off the rails as it is, but on top of production issues, there’s still a myriad of paperwork, correspondences, appointments and phone calls for every project. Not to mention, keeping up with research, social media and website management,” shares Bruno. Now, with web-based applications and cloud storage solutions, contractors are offered the option to take only the weight they can handle, and leave the rest to virtual assistants.
VAs are highly skilled professionals who provide office support remotely. Depending on the company or individual, services can range from administrative, creative, customer service, accounting, sales, to technical support. They’re usually paid by the hour, so the amount incurred only corresponds to the time spent accomplishing the work – no need to account for traffic jams, delayed trains, prolonged office chatter, or even vacation and sick days. They also provide their own office space and supplies, so that’s another expense lifted. You’ll never have to carry the pain of hiring and firing – it takes one click to subscribe, change, or cancel the service. Finally, since they use software and platforms built for workflow efficiency, tasks can be fulfilled faster, leading to improvement of overall productivity.
According to Bruno, aside from being specialized for contractors and service companies, “What sets Contractor Business Solutions apart is the cost-effective and systematic approach.” Unlike other VA services, clients can carry over unused hours from the previous month to the current subscription period – no paid hours would be lost. Additionally, they commit to weekly updates on the hourly progress, so clients can keep track of the VA’s work, and also see their money’s worth. A communication plan is established from the beginning, so all tasks are coordinated and fitted to the client’s schedule and preferences.
“The hustle and bustle seems endless for construction and service companies just to stay afloat. It can get very abrasive, and the complexities require a practical and effective solution. It’s important to incorporate VAs into your business systems to create higher levels of efficiency, and ultimately achieve overall profitability,” says Bruno.
Whether it’s a small business, or a single department in a large company, Contractor Business Solutions offers assistance in general tasks, production management and project accounting. To name a few, his specialized VAs take care of scheduling inspections, client selection management, contractor relationship development, pre-qualification worksheets, warranty letter requests, outbound phone calls, RFI log maintenance, and many other administrative tasks.
“We lay the groundwork as you build your business,” he says. With a tailored VA service system in place, contractors have elbowroom to focus on operations, client acquisition, defining profit goals, and growing their trade. “The rest of the legwork is delegated to capable hands – those who understand the business thoroughly, and have the right skills to perform each type of work,” he adds.
Contractor Business Solutions is a Profit First consulting, bookkeeping, and backend office support company that caters to contractors and service industries. Currently, Mike Bruno also runs a design-build-remodeling business, and a real estate development and investment firm.
