What Paperwork Do We Want? All Of It!
Contractors Have Asked What Paperwork - They should bring to us in order to get their construction bookkeeping brought current and the simple answer is all of it!
You Don't Have To - Organize for us because we have a system from having owned and operated several construction companies in the past, we are not pansy construction bookkeepers that need to be pampered and are easily offended; quite the opposite.
Trying To Organize Construction Bookkeeping Paperwork Is Like Herding Cats!
We Have A Construction Bookkeeping Services System - With workflow processes for everything including paper sorting. Which means once it arrives no matter how organized or disorganized it is we need to pre-process everything before it enters our workflow where it is scanned and uploaded into paperless servers in the cloud. Hopefully you not having to sort anything will save you time and money.
In Fact We Prefer That You Not Pre-Sort Anything - Because in the end it will save us time and money. You can put it all in a bag, box, ox cart or whatever works for you and bring it in. You can fax it, email it, scan it into our paperless server, again whatever works for you!
Construction Paperwork Is Like A Brand New Apprentice Plumber - Left unattended it tends to wander off and get lost so here are a few helpful hints where paperwork hides
In The Contractors Mobile Construction Office Command Center, The Truck:
On the dashboard
Behind the seat
Under the seat
In the console between the seats
In the glove box
Under the spare tire
In the box you got from the supplier warehouse
Outside Your Mobile Office:
In you post office box
Stuffed in manila envelopes
On the night stand
Piled on your desk
In your wallet
Inside your portfolio
Stuffed in all your pants pockets
In your computer bag
Stuffed in all your shirt pockets
Coffee Stained Paperwork Is Optional - We prefer a dark roast, double foam, shot of mint, with a hint of cinnamon. However, plain old black coffee is O.K. too!
Do Not Be Concerned - Where the paperwork has been, when we owned and operated our plumbing service, repair and drain cleaning company we had seven trucks and over twenty employees. We processed paperwork that had been places you can only imagine with no problems at all.
In Summary Don't Sort The paper - Get a big box, file box, and scoop it all into the box, close the box, bring us the box. To you, the contractor, every piece of paper has a story.
This Means Every Time You - Touch it, see it, sort it, smell it, put it into QuickBooks for Contractors or just look at it your protective conditioned mind and its fear creating mechanisms will replay the entire story which will slow you down and in turn drag out the entire construction bookkeeping process. Furthermore it could possibly release serotonin which causes the blood vessels in your head to contract and lower your pain threshold.
It Is A Fact - Doing something you don't like or understand like construction bookkeeping can be painful and in the end when you try to "Power Through The Pain" like Olympic athletes you end up losing money because after powering through the pain you typically do not have the luxury of a vacation and rest period you have to go see that next customer, close the next sale or manage the next job and when you are not at your peak performance you lose, big time!
Your Contractors Bookkeeping Paperwork Has Already - Been over handled, we do not have any emotional attachment to it which means we can reduce input time by at least 40% and since we pass the savings on to you everybody wins.
