Here at Knowify we are always looking for ways to help you save time and make money faster. We know that the key to saving time is quick and easy communication. Our priority is to make communication easy both internally between you and your team and externally between you and your clients. It is likely that you will have lots of communication with your customers throughout the span of each job. One of the most critical interactions that you will have is the communication around the client signing your bid. Very simply, without a signed bid there is no job to work on. Taking advantage of our E-Signature portal will help you with getting jobs signed and getting them signed faster.
Using our E-signature portal and sending your bid through email puts you one step ahead of the game. Customers are more likely to sign a bid with someone they see as professional and efficient. Having a clean looking proposal that is up to date with technology – really, who uses paper these days? – will impress your clients and give them confidence that they are choosing the right company to trust with their job.Continue Reading

Or does it mean a significant change in your business processes in a way that will lead to efficiency, growth, and (hopefully) business transformation? Here’s what the data have to say:
Companies take on 20% more jobs by the end of their first yearContinue Reading

At the core of every business has always been its general ledger. As you probably know, entries used to be recorded by hand before 1961 when the first large-scale computerized accounting system was introduced by IBM. This system was called 9Pac, and it was one of the first systems to track the sales of every salesperson in a company.Continue Reading
