Paperless Snow Tracking and Jobcosting Made Easy Seminar

It’s 1am and the snow’s coming down heavy. It’s all hands on deck as you battle the elements, people, traffic, and random raised sewers and black ice patches. Then your equipment breaks down and salt prices double… if you can get it. And while all this is going on, you need to keep excellent records, pay your staff and subs, service your customers, and still make money. This course won’t fix everything, but it will show you a way to a much more efficient and a profitable snow business. In this course you’ll learn:
- How to setup your accounting for better profitability tracking
- How to setup smart phones to replace snow logs and binders and how to save hundreds of hours of paper-pushing
- How to jobcost your snow contracts with minimal effort and mistakes
- And how to see exactly how much profit was left using your accounting software! (Quickbooks will be used for demonstration purposes)
