Mobile technology changes daily. Everyday a software is created or made more efficient to make lives easier. As a business owner or start up business owner, you have to remain informed of new technology that will make your business run more efficiently, cutting cost, and saving time.
In the world of construction, there have been several changes to improve invoicing and estimating leading up to the actual building process.
What has changed to improve the efficiency in construction? Construction is construction, right?
In the past, a contractor would come to your home with his clipboard and measuring tape to take note of what the job would require. The contractor would go back to the office at some point and make approximate calculations to provide and estimate. As a customer, you would have to wait for that estimate and then play phone tag attempting to schedule the service.
This could be a tedious and drawn process. Well, today contractors have the benefit of using current mobile technology that allows for quicker estimates, scheduling, and invoicing all from your smartphone. These innovations are allowing more efficiency for contractors.
One new innovation is Joist.
