How to Find 15 Extra Hours a Week for Your Contracting Business

Aug. 25, 2021

Technicians are employed for their skill and experience in the field, not with a spreadsheet. Every second they spend filling out paperwork or performing tedious data-entry tasks is a second when their value isn’t being realized. That’s frustrating for them — and expensive for business owners.

It’s no secret that many HVAC, electrical and mechanical contractors are looking for ways to be more efficient and effective. One of the top priorities throughout the industry is reducing the amount of time that team members spend on tedious, time-consuming tasks and freeing them to do the meaningful service work they’re trained and hired for.

We know that an array of technology solutions are available to help field techs save time, reduce expenses and generate more revenue. But they aren’t the only team members who can benefit from technology. Contractors whose technology investment is limited to an app for technicians could be missing a significant opportunity to increase their company’s productivity across the board.

Our industry may focus on the field, but the office staff plays a critical support role that makes field service calls possible. From scheduling and dispatch to sales, management and accounting, empowering the behind-the-scenes team to perform more efficiently and effectively is an essential strategy for increasing revenue and supporting growth.
