New Year’s Resolutions

New YearThis is the time of year that many of us spend reflecting on the last 12 months and setting goals for the next 12.  As a business owner, this kind of reflection is just as important for your business as it is for your personal life.  We’ve been talking about it at PEP Cloud and since we’re in the estimating business, we came up with a few estimating resolutions to help you get to where you want to be.

  1. Start using production rates and measure the spaces that you estimate instead of using hours or coming up with a price that “feels good”.
  2. Start putting pictures on your proposals to increase your sales closing rate.
  3. Start tracking the money spent on labor and materials on your jobs to see if you are meeting your profit targets.

If you need help starting with any of these goals, please contact us.

Happy New Year!
