"I spend too much time with my subs"
"I end up spending a lot of time with my subcontractors because of misunderstandings about what was included in their contract bid.
"Sometimes change orders can create a lot of problems between me and my subs. I all seems to come down to miscommunication about what was in the change order."
"My subs take up a lot of my time.""The worst part is when it comes time to pay them. When their bill is more than the bid, I have to either eat the difference, or spend a lot of time picking it apart and haggling over it."
"There's got to be a better way."
There is a better way. It's called SmartContractor.
With SmartContractor you can quickly and easily generate and print or email subcontractor quote requests.
As part of your sub's pre-job information package, you can give them a Work Order to show them exactly when they are scheduled to do their work.
When changes are made to the job becasue of customer change orders, all you have to do is issue a quote request for the change ordered items, enter the response quote, and re-print and email the updated subcontract and work order.Then when it comes time to pay, it's all there in black and white. Here's your quote for the job, here's your contract, here are the change orders that were made to your work, here are your updated quotes and the updated subcontract. Now what else would you like to talk about?
