A web-based multi-module management system designed by CompuTool for construction and heating, a/c and ventilation companies.
CompuTool is a suite of online applications and businesses processes built exclusively for home remodeling companies that want to grow efficiently and effectively.
CompuTool is specifically designed to grow with your business.
CompuTool is available in three different service levels:
Which applications are included with each CompuTool Level? You’ll find that included within each of the application descriptions below.
CompuTool allows you to track all communications between you and your customers. Our extensive tracking system ensures that calls are documented and handled. Quickly identify gaps in internal communication policies as well as document external conversations. Using filters you can run call reports, by date, client or employee and review all communications at a glance.
The heart and soul of a remodelers business is being able to provide timely, accurate and consistent estimates. With CompuTool you can produce professional estimates with confidence- in minutes instead of hours.
A key feature of our Estimating is customizable assemblies-for pre-determined estimate templates. All assemblies are inclusive of exactly what it takes to complete a job and/or task so your estimators and your customers are clear on what is included and what is excluded from the project. No more absorbing costs that you did not anticipate.
Consistency is guaranteed, regardless of how many salespeople or production managers are estimating jobs. Markups can be held constant, or set to ‘limits’ that allow for pricing flexibility but ensures that each job falls within acceptable gross profit margins.
CompuTool’s professional estimates can be printed right in the customer’s home enabling your salespeople to do one-sit closes and save time from unnecessary sits.
A remodeling contract can do more than protect the parties; it can actually help you close more sales. With our Contract Writer you pre-select specific details for all of your contracts so that you generate uniform contracts across your sales force with compelling features and benefits. To be sure, all items included and/or excluded can be added to your contract template so there can be no misunderstanding.
Ensure that customers requiring financing have it in place-before ordering materials for the job. With CompuTool there is no way that you can get stuck holding expensive inventory waiting for a customer’s financing to come through, or worse finishing a project only to find out that the financing has been rejected and you cannot get paid. Reports show you what financing is in progress and which applications are still outstanding, so you can schedule your projects more accurately.
Maximize the R.O.I. of your advertising and marketing dollars. Lead tracking forces you to enter and track lead sources so that you can find out which advertising and media is working and eliminate those that aren’t. You can even differentiate between ‘like’ advertising mediums such as ‘yellow pages’ and ‘yellow book’, or different TV stations.
Our sophisticated reporting enables you to cross-reference by dates, lead source, job type and referrals. It even provides key metrics such as leads vs. jobs sold percentage. Keep track of which clients are your ‘referral cash cows’ and know which leads have been run and their result! No more wasted leads.
For contractors doing telesales, CompuTool has an integrated module just for you. Build Calling Campaigns using an unlimited number of criteria and track the results of that campaign including detailed call results by representative. Create multi-prong campaigns that include email and standard letters, while delivering detailed statistics to management. You can even create customized Lead Intake questionnaires preloaded with objections and their rebuttals to assist your calling team.
Shorten the sales cycle by being ready to provide before and after pictures to your prospective customers while meeting with them. Show them examples of work that you have done in their area, or on similar projects. Let them see immediately how the products and styles look so nothing is left to their imagination.
Avoid arguments and lost profit by logging existing jobsite conditions such as damaged driveways or landscaping. Note any problem areas before-hand, for example shrubbery that will need to be uprooted or holes that will have to be dug.
As a contractor you know that the profit made at the time of sale can be lost during production. CompuTool’s fully integrated Production Module automatically helps establish schedules and checklists directly from your estimate. And it provides your production team with easy to use tools to ensure that jobs runs on time and stay on budget.
Manage your projects more successfully and increase your professional image with proper Project Tracking; keep track of all pertinent information by specific job and customer. The best time to insure profitability and customer satisfaction is while your jobs are in progress, not after the fact. The project tracking feature provides a roadmap and a dashboard view of exactly where you stand, all in real time.
Each segment of your project has a specific budget, so you can keep track of profitability as the job progress and should there be budget over-runs you will know whether the problem was in the estimate, or the production. Project tracking keeps track of materials used so you can increase customer care after the completion of a project, for both repairs and warranties.
CompuTool enhanced is built with 2-way integration with QuickBooks . Your data is automatically synchronized between both applications ending the burden on your staff of having to enter redundant information and eliminating possible human errors.
Increase your confidence in management reports because of true data integrity.
Now, with CompuTool enhanced you can use the #1 business management system- designed exclusively for the remodeling industry-with the most widely used accounting software package.
CompuTool Sales Scheduling is fully integrated with other key applications in our online suite-and provides 2-way synchronization to Microsoft Outlook ®.
Take the guesswork out of your sales scheduling. Regardless if you are scheduling one salesperson or an entire department, you will see who is available and when. Personal time will show up as ‘busy time’ so you won’t have to reschedule. And since we utilize 2-way synchronization changes are automatically sent back to the master calendar as they change.
Our integrated sales scheduling will provide you with more accurate sales analysis. For instance, you will be able to track exactly how many appointments you had with a lead, prospect or customer and what the result was for a true closing percentages and batting averages and of course deliver true cost per lead and cost per sale analysis.
Improve your customer care ranking by using Service Calls to see at a glance which calls have been scheduled and which calls are still outstanding. Included in our Service Call feature is both scheduling and dispatching. Information specific to the service call and service history can be printed right onto a service ticket. Keep track of service calls by project team and customer to identify which ones may be causing you to lose money.
Easily look up manufacturer’s warranty information with the click of a mouse. You can search by; manufacturer, product name, style, size and color, warranty type (for example; labor and materials, materials only, etc) in addition to the duration and expiration date. This feature is just one more step in helping to ensure your best professional image to your customers while saving precious time.
