Why Contractors Need High Tech Construction Accounting Solutions

Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Nov 20, 2015

High Technology Construction Accounting Offices Are No Longer A Luxury

They Are Standard Operating Procedure Just To Keep Up With Your Competitors

High technology office environments are now as important as the Smartphone and tablet were several years ago. If you were a smart, forward thinking contractor you got those long before your competition did and made a lot of money in a short period of time.

You need to commit to spending $100,000+ to setup a high technology construction accounting office and staff it with Professional Construction Accounting Staff or outsource it a Contractors Bookkeeping Service before it is too late.

Act Now! Don't wait until you are fighting for the crumbs left by successful high-profit contractors who know where The Top 20% of the market is, how to attract them, make obscene profits and retire early.

80 20 Rule For Construction From Fast Easy Accounting

Perhaps you don't want to invest $100,000+ to setup a high tech construction accounting office not more than you want to setup an oil change station at your shop or office since both of them can be outsourced cheaper and faster than you can do-it-yourself. Let alone the aggravation that comes with having a bookkeeper in your house or office and worse yet having your wife do it...now there is a recipe for divorce!


To Setup A Contractors Bookkeeping Service Office Here Are A Few Helpful tips

Tip #01 - Consistency Is Key To Effective And Efficient Contractor Bookkeeping

If neither option appeals to you then perhaps you may want to look around and see how busy you are now and give serious consideration to polishing up your resume and get ready to look for a job with one of your competitors.

When economy improves, which it will eventually, you will face a juggernaut of forward thinking construction business owners who are updating their Processes, Policies and Procedures to identify their Prime Customer and developing systems to get the most profitable top 20% of the jobs right now. We know it to be true because we are working with a number of them All Across The USA Including Alaska And Hawaii, not now but right now!

The great obstacle to discovering the value of Construction Bookkeeping which generates good reports and being informed in time to seize opportunities and avoid disasters is not ignorance; but the illusion of trying to save money doing it yourself or hiring cheap bookkeepers because good bookkeeping like good construction is not cheap.

My purpose was not to offend anyone; however, if I can keep just ONE construction business owner from disaster, bankruptcy, divorce or suicide; and yes some construction company owners have decided to take on a long-term solution to a short-term problem...it is only money.

Everyone fails now and then, goodness knows I have. You can always start over, rebuild and go back into business again...a little older and a little wiser and this time you will know to seek wise counsel.

We Remove Contractor's Unique Paperwork Frustrations


This Is Only The Tip - Of the Iceberg. Everything we publish in our blog posts, articles in other websites, and anything you can find on the web is nothing compared to what is available to you as our client. We show only the basic tools to open your mind to the possibilities that are available to you. The best finish carpentry tools in the hands of a golf professional without proper carpentry training will not produce anything near to what a skilled finish carpenter can. The same can be said about the best construction business consulting and accounting tools in the hands of a skilled finish carpenter. And I say that with respect and admiration for everyone in construction.
