[Video] 10 Key Components to Save Time & Increase Profitability

The COVID-19 crisis, unfortunately, will have many losers. Social distancing guidelines and nervous customers are pushing businesses to change how they work. Some of the changes may be permanent. You can be on the winning side if you make your contracting business crisis-proof and be ready for the forthcoming low-touch economy by preparing to do 3 things: 

  1. Implement a software sales solution that enables you to have both virtual and in-home sales conversations. 
  1. Develop systems that allow you to spend less time in the house. Use technology to communicates estimates and proposals digitally in real-time. 
  1. Find a way to process payment securely. Do not ask for credit card information on the phone or write credit card numbers on paper and risk your business not being compliant with local laws. 

Usually, to solve for all of this you would need to sign up for several software applications, but Leap makes it easy for you to prepare for the low-touch economy. In March, when the Covid-19 crisis hit, Leap customers were able to quickly adapt and continue their business.
