A General Contractor invites you to bid on a job. Now what?
How do you cost out the work and submit it within the confines of that GC’s specifications? And what do you have to do once you win the bid to actually manage the project?
Is your first instinct to turn to your trusty spreadsheet and calculator? Lots of contractors run their bid/submit/PO processes that way. QuickBooks® and Excel are great tools, but they can only take you so far.
What if you could manage all of the painful administrative work associated with your contract jobs faster and more accurately?
With Knowify, you click on Contract Jobs and quickly cost out a job to produce a bid based on estimated costs. Knowify’s bidding tools automatically output a bid form (and yes, custom templates are available) ready to submit to the GC.
Win the bid?
Click on Knowify’s Purchasing Module and create purchase orders for materials and send those POs directly to your vendor right through the system. Then schedule your crews in the resource scheduler. It’s easy!
Knowify’s On-site Foreman Module tracks worker time – or, if you prefer, lets each worker Check in / Checkout on their mobile phone for fully automated timekeeping. Your office reviews time reports in real time — as they come in — so you can quickly process, approve, or reject as appropriate.
Are you making money?
Knowify’s Project Plan Module automatically tracks each job’s progress against budgets as time and purchases come in. You get a real-time look at each project’s performance!
Knowify makes it quick and easy to create a change order and then send it out for e-signature directly through the system.
Invoicing is easier, faster
Whether you bill at the end of a project or choose progress billing, Knowify compiles the information and lets you submit using standard invoicing or AIA-style applications for payment.
