Are You Getting The QuickBooks Reports And Information You Need?
Contractors Don't Want Drills - They want holes. To get holes they buy drills, drill bits, power cords, etc. Actually they don't even want holes; they want channels to run pipe, wire, bolts etc. In fact they don't want channels they just want to start and finish construction projects.
To dig a little deeper into construction psychology they want satisfaction and recognition that comes from doing construction projects. An added benefit is getting paid for contracting and being able to buy food, clothing and shelter and even a few toys, vacations and other goodies. All that from drills.
Contractors Don't Want QuickBooks - In fact most of our clients don't like it, some hate it and a few see it as a necessary evil that must be tolerated. They just want financial reports, Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet, Job Costing Reports and Job Profitability Reports. They want to know where they are making and losing money and why.
What Is Your QuickBooks Doing Or Not Doing?
Every successful contractor seems to have followed a similar path. Start a Construction Company, hire a few friends and relatives and make one of them the office manager and bookkeeper. Then after a while fire some of the friends and relatives including the bookkeeper.
They assign one of them to be the office manager and show them the box containing QuickBooks for contractors or if the office manager is lucky it is already loaded on the office computer. If it is not setup they perform a QuickBooks setup for Construction Company following the instructions that came with QuickBooks for contractors, QuickBooks Pro or QuickBooks enterprise.
Later when the contractor asks for a job costing report, retention summary or a work-in-progress report the contractor's bookkeeper gives that blank stare, deer in the headlights look and is overwhelmed, confused, dismayed and generally feeling as uncomfortable as long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
