Tracking painter’s time sheets have always been a pain in the past.
From getting guys to turn them in, if they don’t end up losing or damaging them, to filling them out properly.
Oh and don’t forget the fact that they always land on that magical total of 40 hours every single week.
About 2 years ago I started using this app for tracking time sheets and it is literally a game-changer, but first I’m going to share with you a time this app saved my butt…
We were on a time and material (T&M) project for a homeowner that was difficult to bid due to unknown circumstances.
The homeowner was aware of the situation as we kept them in the loop the entire time, but what was difficult with this project was that we were working on other parts of the home on a straight bid price.
A deposit was collected and a second payment was accepted and we finished the project with rave reviews by the homeowner…
Then the rubber hit the Road…
The homeowner gasped when they received the final invoice as if they were reading their own obituary.
One minute they were raving fans, and then the next, just like David Copperfield with his disappearing of the statue of liberty, Poof! They were nowhere to be found!
After the dust cleared I was able to have a conversation with them regarding the invoice.
The Issue was the T&M charges. Although the material was easy to verify and explain the time was their issue.
The explanation and the proof that this app provided saved my butt.
Tsheets is the top app for painting contractors hands down and is the time tracking software that allows our employees to clock in on their mobile device and separate tasks with a tap of their finger.
We were able to separate projects, separate tasks within the projects, and T&M positions of prep, finish, specific rooms, and the list goes on.
Now get this, we are able to get a GPS stamp when employees clock in.
We presented all the information to the homeowner and put their doubts to bed.
In fact, they thanked us for being so detailed with our hours and paperwork.
The ROI of being able to track each and every hour worked is priceless!
The nominal cost when compared to the ROI it provides is:
1 user is FREE
Each additional user is $4 plus a base fee of $16.00.
100 plus users $4 per user with a $80 base fee.
