5 ways Buildertrend’s QuickBooks construction software integration makes your life easier
Running a construction business is hard work. It’s even harder when you have to spend more time managing spreadsheets than managing your team in the field. Thankfully, a variety of software solutions exist today to help construction pros with all of their business processes including bookkeeping and project management.
However, even powerful tools working side by side can leave frustrating process gaps for business owners. That’s not the case with Buildertrend’s QuickBooks construction software integration. With Buildertrend, the leading tech choice for home builders and remodelers, you have the system you need to manage pre-sales, client management and project planning. Integrated alongside QuickBooks, Buildertrend also gives you the power to control all things financial.
Here’s how this integration helps keep your business moving:
1. Defeat data double entry
Data entry for construction businesses is tedious yet incredibly important. A misplaced comma could sink a project before it even starts. Entering in prices and quantities in a project management and bookkeeping system is also time consuming and repetitive for business owners who already are short on time.
That’s why Buildertrend’s QuickBooks integration eliminates double entry. Plus, this integration goes along with the same workflows you’re already used to. Now, your financial information is stored in the same place as the rest of your project details and you only need to enter the number once.
2. Have consistent data
Running a construction business often requires contractors to bounce from system to system. Keeping all these systems in sync is a challenge on good days and a disaster on bad days.
Thankfully, Buildertrend’s two-way sync with QuickBooks allows information to quickly and easily transfer between programs to automatically keep them in sync. You can take project-specific expenses that originated in QuickBooks and send them back to your Buildertrend budgets for more accurate job costing. Better processes like this mean better profit margins.
