Are You Investing in the Right Management Software for Contractors?
The right management software for contractors can help you scale your business faster and more efficiently. And nobody knows that better than Leap’s Chief Product Officer, Troy Winskowicz. Recently, Troy sat down with Heidi J. Ellsworth of Roofers Coffee Shop to discuss the recent changes at Leap. With the Leap platform and SalesPro tool, contractors have a more complete technology stack in place as they grow.
However, many companies have yet to embrace automation in the home improvement industry. Is your business falling behind your competitors or losing out on potential jobs? Learn how you can become more efficient as a business and more effective when working with homeowners.
The Value of Management Software for Contractors
Leap and JobProgress came together in March of 2022, and yet, the journey is just beginning. At the International Roofing Expo one year later, Leap announced the rebranding of all products. Now, Leap provides an end-to-end management software for contractors!
“JobProgress is now known as the Leap platform,” Troy explained during his podcast appearance. “It handles everything from the lead coming in, setting the appointment, going on site and doing the estimate, closing the deal, running production, managing schedules with your crews and sales folks, and integrating with your vendors.”
At Leap, the goal is to provide the solutions you need to grow. And the team at Leap understands that as you grow, your needs begin to change or expand. That’s why Leap’s best-of-class sales software isn’t going anywhere either!
“The product formally known as Leap is now called SalesPro. It’s a sales enablement tool,” Troy added. “We have lots of customers who use other products, but they need a best-of-breed sales team empowerment tool. The ability to rapidly scale and manage a large sales team is what SalesPro does best. SalesPro is available standalone as it always has been, but you can also get it as part of the platform. If you want a fully integrated solution, you’re going to buy the Leap platform with SalesPro baked in.”
For years, software companies never worked together. In fact, the home improvement industry was late to the party when it comes to third-party integrations, CRM, and automation.
But now, the shifting landscape has led to great innovations and partnerships that are giving contractors more value than ever before. And the team at Leap is proud to be at the forefront of this transformation.
Solving Problems with Software
When you choose to invest in management software for contractors, you want that software to make life easier for your business. Otherwise, what’s the point?
With the Leap platform, you can automate your workflow and manage your leads, daily tasks, projects, and more. Therefore, your operations are more efficient, saving you time and money that you can utilize elsewhere as you grow.
“We really try to right-size the combination of tools you need to meet you where you are in your journey as a contractor,” Troy told Heidi. “That is the mission, to help people grow and be there every step of the way.”
All customer information and job details are now tracked and managed in a complete platform that you can access on the go or in the office. You can also put guardrails in place to ensure your team is following up with leads in a timely manner and not falling behind on any specific job.
And once you’ve eliminated the common inefficiencies and repetitive tasks that are holding you back, you can now focus on selling more jobs and expanding your business. That’s the power of the Leap platform.
Better yet, the platform can grow with you. You can add SalesPro to drive higher margins and give your sales reps more confidence at the kitchen table. Moreover, we have many industry-leading partners that integrate directly into our software, such as measurement and imaging tools, marketing, financing, and more.
