Building Products Supply is a Legacy Business
Darren is a general manager at his family’s window and door company where he’s worked all his life, and he knows the business from the ground up. He’s developed manual processes for managing inventory, job costing, manufacturing, and delivery, and he’s good at what he does. In fact, he’s confident that his team can deliver the superior customer service and quality products that his company’s reputation is built on.
However, increased competition has put a strain on Darren and his team, as contractors demand shorter lead times, higher quality, and faster service. Darren’s tried and true processes are becoming a liability, as workloads become overloaded and profit margins erode in this new competitive landscape.
What Darren needs is to transform his old proven processes into new proven processes.
Modern Business Must Scale to Compete
To keep up with the competition, Darren had to increase sales without also increasing headcount and overhead. ContractERP showed Darren how he could scale his business with ERP software, giving his team the tools they needed to be more efficient and take on bigger workloads, without sacrificing quality of service.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software supports Darren’s current workflow by automating repetitive tasks and providing a centralized platform for purchasing, costing, billing, and much more. With the help of ContractERP, Darren was able to increase his workload, improve efficiencies, and reduce costly errors, without having to significantly change his existing workflows. After implementing ContractERP software, Darren was able to regain margins that were previously lost to inefficiency.
Tailored Door Manufacturing and Fenestration Software
ContractERP is a tailored solution—not a one-size-fits-all system—for commercial window and door distributers and manufacturers. General ERP systems for window and door companies are often limited in their billing and project management capabilities. However, ContractERP has spent decades consulting with owners and general managers within the industry to provide a tailored solution.
Benefits of ContractERP include:
- Inventory Tracking
- Delivery Management
- Process Billing
- Centralized project management
- Much more
With ContractERP, employees get increased visibility into all the details of a project, eliminating the need for time-intensive workarounds. And with process billing, change orders and contract adjustments are handled with ease, so you’re never left holding the bill.
As a general manager, Darren saw first-hand how ContractERP streamlined his tried and true processes so he could grow his business without growing overhead.
Work Small, Win Big
Time and time again you’ve been told: in order to win big, you’ve got to take big risks. While this applies to many business practices, ERP software has the potential, when implemented properly, to turn this business rule on its head. Instead, you can “Work Small to Win Big” with an ERP system by scaling your business processes to grow sales without growing headcount.
