You need to know how to do plumbing to be a plumber but you need plumbing business systems to have a successful plumbing business. You can use these systems to track jobs and choose the most profitable ones. When you have efficient business systems in place, you will spend less time dealing with staff problems and waste less money on hidden business costs. And, you will have more time for a life outside of your business!
Is your time spent doing jobs for your clients or supervising your workers who are driving your profits? Or, is your time spent, over and over, fixing minor problems that never seem to go away? What is an hour of your time worth when it is spent productively and how many hours are wasted each week, month, and year? If you are spending your time doing clerical tasks instead of finding more jobs, you are losing money. And, if you are hiring people to do tasks that could be automated, you are also giving money away. With the right business systems, your time will be spent profitably and those small nagging issues will go away for good.
Bookkeeping, inventory, and tracking expenses are critical for success in your plumbing business. At Exigo Business Solutions we recommend that our clients use QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online. QuickBooks offers software packages that will handle your bookkeeping, inventory, and help you spot those hidden expenses that rob profits. We also provide online bookkeeping services for basic bookkeeping, tax planning, payroll, and unique services like converting paper receipts into digital information. With QuickBooks custom reports you will be able to spot problems and opportunities in your business.
With QuickBooks, you can track inventory and have all necessary data integrated with your business information. You will be able to see how profitable your business is in this regard and avoid running out of supplies. And, because we are experts at using QuickBooks as well as the top accounting firm in the Kansas City area, we can take whichever bookkeeping and accounting tasks that you wish off your hands and do the jobs more efficiently and cost-effectively.
At Exigo Business Solutions we do not only do your books and taxes, we dedicate ourselves to making your business as profitable as possible. Success and profit in your plumbing business start with your mindset. Do you hope for a profit or expect one every month? At Exigo Business Solutions we use a unique approach to business called Profit First. Profit First gives you a monthly profit from the first time you use it. The system rearranged the standard bookkeeping formula so that it takes your revenue, subtracts your profit and leaves expenses. This system works because we then show you how to manage your budgeting and cash flowing using plumbing business systems in tools like QuickBooks. The end result is that profit becomes a habit.
Are you tired of the little business problems that never seem to go away? They rob you of time and money. The cure is a business system called Fix This Next. Working as your Fix This Next coach, we will help your ferret out, from the ground up, the basic business issues that are the root of all of your “little” problems. We address the business hierarchy of needs, starting with sales, profit, and business organization. When we find and address the problems we will help you set up plumbing business systems to track the root causes and make certain that your troubles do not occur again.
We are not plumbers but we work with plumbers and virtually every other kind of business. We see the problems that businesses get into and the ways to get out of a business crisis when the existence of your business is at risk. With our years of experience, we can act as your virtual CFO and provide you with expertise that you could never afford to have in house. We can help you set up and maintain efficient and cost-effective plumbing business systems that will help guarantee profits, maximize your profits, reduce your workload, and provide you with an accurate view of your overall finances and the important details.
Small businesses usually outsource their bookkeeping to save money. This will happen if you send the job to us. We are efficient and fast and will generally do your work faster than you did in house. We are also accurate, accountable, and available when you need us. However, because we go the extra mile in working with you, we can help with making your business more efficient, increasingly profitable, and easier to manage. We can help you set up the right plumbing business systems and provide the essential insights you need to let you grow your business and your profits over time.
