Let’s face it, the daily routine can be a grind. Some days it seems nearly impossible to accomplish everything on our list. And more often than not, despite the very best planning and prioritizing, things change. The things we intended to do are lost, forgotten or postponed as we work to cram as much as we can into our quickly-evolving day.
For those of you that work in construction, you likely know this concept well. Between the bid deadlines, field visits and day-to-day operations, there’s only so much time in the day and only so much energy you can exert. Deciding what to do and making tough priority calls is necessary, but it doesn’t have to take as much of your valuable time as you might allow.
If your bid process is long and laborious, if you’re still using yesterday’s takeoff tools for tomorrow’s projects, if you want to spend less time in the office and more time in the field or with friends and family - it’s TIME to make a change.
Taking advantage of takeoff and estimating software can not only have a tremendous impact on your business, but can also add valuable time back to your day. Leave paper plans, rulers, markers and out-of-date spreadsheets behind and invest in software that will allow you to bid more work, in less time. In doing so, you’ll improve the accuracy of your takeoffs, eliminate costly errors and significantly expedite your bid process.
“Time is free, but it’s not priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.” -Harvey Mackay
Time is your currency – spend wisely.
