What It’s About:
Anyone can buy an estimating program and enter the square footage, linear footage and item counts to get a generic price to charge the client. But will that really produce the right - and profitable - price? In this advanced session, we'll go beyond the basics of estimating and explore how you can generate more profits through a customized approach that takes into account the unique factors within each project: the client, season, design, schedule, labor and more. You work hard to earn the business you get so it's time to learn how to more consistently make the profits you expect by aligning, tracking and adjusting your estimates accordingly.
What You'll Learn:
Identify the top five reasons costs come in differently than estimated and learn ways to fix them.
Receive real-world tools and processes to address each of these five challenges.
Learn how to better predict the gross profit you can expect on each project.
